The Seattle band is finishing up their Queensrÿche Cabaret tour and will roll out with a Hits tour next season. On November 9th, the band will release a 20th anniversary Deluxe Edition of their classic album Empire. The 1990 release, which features "Silent Lucidty" and "Jet City Woman" is one of the band's finest efforts.
Basically, this is a re-issue of the 2003 remaster of the album, with the b-sides "Scarborough Fair," "Last Time in Paris" and "Dirty Lil Secret." But the real bonus is the second disc, a live recording from the band's 1990 "Building Empires" tour, recorded in London.
Here's the track list:
Walk in the Shadows
Best I Can
The Thin Line
Jet City Woman
Roads to Madness
Hand on Heart
Take Hold of the Flame
In addition to having a rare live recording of Empire track "Hand on Heart", this was recorded before "Silent Lucidity" became the biggest hit of their career and as a result, got bumped to the encore position.
