Seattle progressive rockers QUEENSRŸCHE have announced a special event to benefit the earthquake relief efforts in Japan. Set to take place on April 14 at the Hard Rock Cafe in Seattle, Washington, the night will kick off with an introduction to the third vintage of Insania wine, a collaboration between QUEENSRŸCHE vocalist Geoff Tate and Three Rivers Winery. Guests can purchase and enjoy the wine and have Geoff autograph the bottle. Before the night is over, Geoff and other members of QUEENSRŸCHE will take the stage and perform an acoustic set of their favorite songs.
Tickets are $20 advance and $30 at doors. Age 21 and over only.
To order tickets, go to this location.
QUEENSRŸCHE has set "Dedicated To Chaos" as the title of its twelfth studio album, tentatively due mid-summer via Loud & Proud Records, a Roadrunner Records imprint focusing on established artists. The band is currently planning a tour in support of the new opus, which was recorded in the group's hometown and produced by Kelly Gray.
"Modern life moves fast," Tate stated about the album. "Plug into the rhythm of the now with our twelfth studio album, 'Dedicated To Chaos'. The clash and slash of musical experimentation anchored by the pulse of digital code." He did issue one suggestion to listeners as well, saying, "Enjoy — headphones are a must."
