, Staff

Queensryche will hit the road this summer for their 30th Anniversary tour in support of their forthcoming album Dedicated to Chaos. The veteran hard rockers will play Boston’s House of Blues on Saturday, August 6. Tickets for the show are now on sale through Live Nation for $25.

Dedicated to Chaos
, Queensrÿche’s 13th studio album, will be released on June 28. Produced by Kelly Gray, it is the progressive metal group’s first recording for Roadrunner Record’s Loud & Proud label. The band will release Dedicated to Chaos‘ lead single “Get Started” on June 5.

“It’s huge rock with a great dance vibe to it, real modern dance,” said drummer Scott Rockenfield in a recent interview with Attention Deficit Delirium. “It’s kind of like Rage [For Order] through a time tunnel, bringing it into the now. There are a lot of electronic elements to it. It’s a big rock thing that is going to have a lot of color to it – it’s good and really intense.

“We’re moving into really dark and heavy rock for us,” he added. “It’s not like a Lady Gaga dance record, but it’s a combination of a lot of different elements – Lady Gaga meets Nine Inch Nails meets Queensrÿche.”

The band’s visit to New England will also include a performance at the Hampton Beach Casino Ballroom in New Hampshire on Friday, August 6. Tickets for the show are on sale through Ticketmaster for $20.
