Queensryche have teamed up with Pledge Music for a new album pre-order campaign titled ‘Building the Empire,’ a nod to their 1990 album 'Empire.' The campaign offers fans closer access to the band and will even give the opportunity for select people to financially invest in the progressive rock group.

After a turbulent couple of years, Queensryche have launched this enticing album pre-order campaign that offers the group’s hardcore fan base everything from limited edition vinyl and merchandise to the actual instruments played on the upcoming album and a chance to hang with the band in their hometown of Seattle. For more check out their Pledge Music page here.

The band has also created a unique opportunity for accredited investors to purchase a stake in Queensryche Holdings, LLC. According to bassist Eddie Jackson, “This stake will allow select investors that meet certain financial requirements to share in all of the profits the band makes moving forward. This opportunity is being offered on a limited basis.” Interested fans can learn about the investor accrediatation process here.

Queensryche, now comprised of Eddie Jackson, Todd La Torre, Parker Lundgren, Scott Rockenfield and Michael Wilton, recently started writing music for their new album that is slated for release in spring 2015. To pre-order the effort click here. It will mark the band’s second album with new vocalist Todd LaTorre, after the band’s bitter split with original frontman Geoff Tate.

Sadly frontman Todd La Torre's father died from an apparent suicide earlier this month. La Torre released a statement asking for privacy during his difficult time and ensured fans he would not miss any upcoming shows.

Queensryche will take the stage in Harris, Mich. on Nov. 21 and 22. For all their tour dates click here.
