Against the formidable obstacles of an ever-changing cultural landscape, the rise and fall of various musical trends, and the near collapse of the record industry itself, QUEENSRŸCHE secured a triumphant legacy as one of hard rock’s most respected and celebrated acts, selling 30 million albums around the world across a 30-plus-year career.
The much-anticipated new offering, Condition Hüman, sees vocalist Todd LaTorre deliver the performance of a lifetime on what is now his sophomore recording effort with the band. Produced by Zeuss (Rob Zombie, Hatebreed, Sanctuary) in the band’s native Washington, Condition Hüman is a new mountain towering over many of the peaks and valleys of the hard rock landscape. Look for the album via Century Media Records on Oct 2nd. Pre-Orders are available now at http://www.pledgemusic.com/projects/queensryche
The epic album opening track, “Arrow of Time,” can be heard now exclusively at the link below
Also, don't miss QUEENSRŸCHE on tour as direct support to the legendary Scoprions across North America from Sept 10th to Oct 9th. For all dates head either see below or head over to www.queensrycheofficial.com
The band’s name is uttered in the same breath as many of the groups they looked to as influences and others who arose as peers. Queensrÿche built a dedicated legion of fans traveling the globe on tour with fellow rock giants like Iron Maiden, Guns N’ Roses, Metallica, Judas Priest, and Def Leppard. In recent years, they’ve consistently delivered high-octane live shows combining the hungry fire of a new band with the tempered experience of master showmen. Even with eleven gold and platinum plaques and a several Top 10 hard rock anthems woven into the very fiber of the genre, Queensrÿche won’t relent. In fact, they’re in the throes of a jaw-dropping creative resurgence.

September Mourning Releases "Children Of Fate" Lyric Video & Announces Kickstarter Campaign Alongside Top Cow Productions
Dark Alternative, Hard Rock Transmedia Project September Mourning have released their "Children Of Fate" lyric video from their upcoming EP due out this fall.
Watch September Mourning's "Children Of Fate" lyric video below:
September Mourning is a character that was created by Emily Lazar (aka September) with Mark Silvestri, founder & CEO of Top Cow Productions, Inc. The band alongside Top Cow have announced a Kickstarter campaign to help bring September Mourning's story from the stage to the pages of a comic book. An amazing all female team has been assembled to bring the story to life. The first issue has already been written by Mariah McCourt, illustrated by Summeye Kesgin, and conceptualized by Emily Lazar (September Mourning) & Marc Silvestri. There will be many reward tiers for donations with comic and music gifts to be had, and if the Kickstarter goal is reached, the first issue will be given away digitally for free. Click HERE to go to September Mourning's Kickstarter page.
About September Mourning: September Mourning revives the concept of rock star meets superhero. If Marilyn Manson and Lady Gaga had a kid, it would be September Mourning, who also cites influences as varied as David Bowie, Motionless in White, KISS, Paramore and My Chemical Romance.
“For me, the project is a story, a theatrical art piece,” September explains. “Music is a piece of the backbone, but for this to work, it has to include the imagery and the narrative all symbiotically linked into the whole. Music taps into your innermost being. There’s something very intimate and personal about it.”
The character of September Mourning is a human-reaper hybrid, who feels the need to give some human souls a second chance, and thus toys with Fate. To expound on this narrative, September is working with iconic comic book artist Marc Silvestri, who started out on the original X-Mencomics and went on to form both Image and Top Cow Productions (Witchblade, The Darkness). Together, they are putting together the story of September Mourning in graphic novel form, to accompany, and enhance the storyline and musical message.
September Mourning carries positive passions into its music, which is often operatic, but also completely rock ‘n’ roll in all its majestic glory.
Having toured with Marilyn Manson, September Mourning has already built up an impressive fan base, which she calls her “Children of Fate,” constantly encouraging them to have “the courage to embrace their passion… to allow yourself to follow your heart and not be a slave to your fears. To know that the only boundaries that exist in our lives are the ones we allow.”
DEVIL CITY ANGELS today premiere the debut video for the track “Boneyard” from their self-titled album, scheduled for release September 18th through Century Media.
