Four of the original members of Queensryche have gotten together with Crimson Glory vocalist Todd La Torre and the band is ready to make its debut.

The new band is named Rising West and the five members will make their debut together on June 8 and June 9 in Seattle, Washington.

It's been a while since anything Queensryche-related has been in the news, so I felt that it was necessary to write about the new band created by members Michael Wilton, Eddie Jackson, Scott Rockenfield, and Parker Lundgren.

As Geoff Tate is off doing solo projects, this new band will cover old Queensryche classics from the first five studio albums.

Give Todd La Torre a listen...
