Geoff Tate, Michael Wilton, Eddie Jackson, Scott Rockenfield and Parker Lundgren — collectively and collaboratively known as the rock band, Queensryche — recently entered the studio to lay down what will be the band’s first studio recording since their ambitious American Soldier project in March of 2009.
Due out on Roadrunner/Loud & Proud Records later this spring, the working title of the forthcoming effort is once again “Bob.”
“Our very first demo was recorded on a cassette tape by a guy named Bob,” explains front man Geoff Tate. “We’ve kept that tradition ever since and, to this day, put all of our demos in the original case labeled ‘Bob’ until we actually have an album title.”
Very superstitious, indeed.
The project has been a true meeting of the creative minds since it began earlier this year.
And if you think you know “Bob,” think again…
The tentative moniker certainly wasn’t meant to be a palindrome like Black Sabbath’s Live Evil… that’s just they way it turned out.
“We’ll certainly have the name of the album soon,” states Tate. “In the mean time, we hope you’re getting ready to welcome ‘Bob’ into your own, individual rock universe.”
