After their self-titled album landed in the top 25 of the Billboard 200 last week, the Todd La Torre-fronted version of Queensryche have just unleashed the video for the single ‘Fallout’ (watch above).
The video was filmed in May at the Rock Hard Festival in Gelsenkirchen, Germany. It combines performance footage along with behind the scenes shots. In a recent interview, guitarist Michael Wilton talked about ‘Fallout,’ which was co-written by bassist Eddie Jackson.
“Eddie has always had great ideas over the years and has a lot of strength and ability in terms of the melodic end of Queensryche’s songwriting,” Wilton says. “I don’t know, maybe he just wasn’t given the proper chance in the past but the guy loves songwriting and he loves his instrument. He’s very melodically inclined and was very spot on in his writing of those lyrics and hats off to him for that. I said, ‘Bring it on Ed, bring some more.’ That song really surprised us, Scott and Eddie kind of put that all together and we embelished on the guitar parts but it ended up being a quick 2:45 of goodness.”
Queensryche have several U.S. shows planned for this summer. In October they travel overseas to begin a European tour.
