Having just completed the year-long "Condition Human" world tour, heavy metal icon Queensryche is proud to release a new music video for the song "Bulletproof." Speaking about the story behind the track as well as the new video, vocalist Todd La Torre comments:

"'Bulletproof' is a journey through a relationship gone bad, however painful the relationship is you still find a way to persevere.

Queensryche Releases "Hellfire" Video

Seattle's heavy metal icons from Queensryche are nearing the end of their "Condition Human" world tour, which has now brought them back to North America on a fall headlining run.

Continuing to build on the momentum of their latest studio album, the band has released a visceral new music video for "Hellfire", which spotlights the Malaysian passenger flight crisis in 2014. Speaking about the influence and subject matter for the new video, vocalist Todd La Torre states:

"'Hellfire' is a depiction primarily based on the tragic events surrounding the Malaysian airline flight MH17. Despite the storyline's foundation, the lyrical and visual narrative transcends into other pertinent, global subject matters. Civil unrest, guerrilla warfare, media propaganda, and social inequalities are just some examples of the multifaceted issues marbled throughout 'Hellfire'. A poignant illustration of an unfortunate yet timeless reality." More...

This year’s lineup has that perfect balance with a little something for everyone.”
