Despite previously published reports to the contrary, QUEENSRŸCHE have issued a statement via their official web site, www.queensryche.com, reaffirming July 22 as the projected release date through Sanctuary Records for their new studio opus, "Tribe". In addition, a new track called "Desert Dance" has been made available for listening in streaming audio to members of the group's official Fan Club.
"Tribe", which features a guest appearance by original QUEENSRŸCHE guitarist Chris DeGarmo, was engineered by Scott Olson, who has worked as the "full-time right hand" to Terry Date (producer for such bands as the DEFTONES, PANTERA and LIMP BIZKIT, among others). The follow-up to 1999's "Q2K" was mixed by Adam Kasper, whose past credits include PEARL JAM and the FOO FIGHTERS.
The complete track listing for "Tribe" is as follows (in no particular order):
04. Desert Dance
05. The Great Divide
06. Doin' Fine
07. Falling Behind
08. Rhythm of Hope
09. Losin' Myself
