In support of their forthcoming album The Verdict (out March 1 via Century Media Records), Queensryche has announced 2019 dates for The Verdict World Tour, which begins March 2 in Orlando with stops including New York City, San Diego, Tempe, Chicago, Sacramento, San Francisco and Milwaukee before wrapping up this leg in Seattle on April 3.
The Verdict will be the band's third album since splitting with original lead singer Geoff Tate in 2012. After losing a protracted legal battle over the Queensryche name, Tate now tours under the name Operation: Mindcrime. Queensryche's last album was 2015's Condition Hüman.
It seems the four years between albums hasn't dampened the metal spirit of the band, according to guitarist Michael "Whip" Wilton.
“The Verdict is the most metal and the most progressive record we have made in a long time,” said Wilton in a statement. “I couldn’t possibly be more excited for everyone to hear this.”
Queensryche has one more live date scheduled for this year which will take place at the Jackson Rancheria Casino Resort in Jackson, CA on Thursday, Dec. 20.
Tickets for Queensryche's 2019 The Verdict World Tour are available now.
