The band recently issued the following update:
“It looks like the January 3rd show just got a little bit bigger and better! Pamela Moore and her band will be opening up the night for us at the Snoqualmie Casino and will also be joined on stage by METAL CHURCH singer Ronny Munroe!! It’s going to be a great night….so don’t miss out! VIP tix here.”
In a follow up post from the band, fans are advised that due to casino policy Pamela Moore must go on at 7:50pm and be done no later than 8:25pm in order for Queensrÿche to get on stage ASAP. Make sure you’re there early.
Queensrÿche have premiered their new video, Ad Lucem, The tracks, ‘Spore’, ‘Midnight Lullaby’ and ‘A World Without’ provide the score to this 10-plus minute mini-movie.
“We decided to take a different approach with this video,” comments La Torre. “It’s a conceptual music video that invites the audience to scratch beneath the surface a bit, rather than the usual ‘chewed food’ that so many are used to being fed. We really wanted to deviate from a performance type of video so the music and story-line could be the main focus.”
La Torre also adds, “The overall theme of the song ‘Spore’ is one that deals with personal demons, relationship struggles, career pressures, personal/professional morals and ethical dilemmas. These are issues we all face on some level and the video touches upon them all. ‘Midnight Lullaby’/’A World Without’ deals with the loss of a mother during childbirth, leaving a father as a single parent and struggling to move forward through the turmoil. The end result is a roller coaster of emotion in an effort to find a healthy resolve. Given our history, we feel that this multifaceted conceptual video, along with a great cast of actors to suit, will really resonate with our fans.“
