Win Queensryche’s 'Q2K' Reissue CD ... TODAY!
Rhino Entertainment will reissue Queensryche’s album 'Q2K' on August 29th, which is currently out of print and now contains previously unreleased material.
Queensr˙che recorded its seventh studio album in 1999 during a time of uncertainty. Emotionally devastated by the departure of one of its founding guitarists, the Seattle-based, progressive-metal quintet was also reeling from the twin losses of its management group and record company. Despite the chaos, Queensr˙che returned stronger than ever with an album that marked a new beginning. Rhino Records revisits the band's triumph of will with the remastered and expanded version of Q2K. The album will be available August 29th; the iTunes version of the album will also feature an interactive booklet with the exclusive video for "The Right Side Of My Mind."
The release of Q2K continues an ambitious year for Queensr˙che, which includes the April release of the long-awaited sequel Operation: mindcrime II, which debuted at #14 in the Billboard Top 200. In addition, the band embarks on an extensive summer/fall tour in August. Presented by VH1 Classic, the epic live show will feature a full stage production, including surround sound, video imagery, and actors playing out both parts of the Operation: mindcrime saga in their entirety.
So, if you would like to win one of these new CDs along with an exclusive Q2K baseball cap, just answer this easy question: Originally released in 1999 on Atlantic, Q2K both captures Queensryche as a mature musical machine in its prime, and finds them breaking new ground after a personnel change. But what exactly was the 'personnel change' (within the band) that we are refering to?!
