QUEENSRŸCHE have set the tentative track listing for their forthcoming studio album, "Tribe", due on July 22 through Sanctuary Records.
The follow-up to 1999's "Q2K", which is expected to include a guest appearance by original QUEENSRŸCHE guitarist Chris DeGarmo, will contain the following cuts:
04. Desert Dance
05. The Great Divide
06. Doin' Fine
07. Falling Behind
08. Rhythm of Hope
09. Losin' Myself
As previously reported, "Tribe" 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) and was mixed by Adam Kasper, whose past credits include PEARL JAM and the FOO FIGHTERS.
In other news, it has now been confirmed that DeGarmo will NOT be joining the group on their upcoming North American tour with DREAM THEATER and FATES WARNING. The guitarist, whose non-participation in the band's upcoming European trek was announced late last month, has now apparently pulled out of the band altogether with no plans to return to the fold anytime soon.
It is not presently clear who will assume the second-guitarist duties during the band's upcoming tour, but speculation is that it will be Mike Stone (ex-KLOVER, CRAIG GOLDIE'S RITUAL, JONAS HANSSON BAND, CRISS), who performed with the group during their New Year's Eve headlining performance in Anchorage, Alaska. Stone stepped in as a temporary replacement for ex-guitarist Kelly Gray, who was dismissed from the band in late 2001.
