Queensryche guitarist Michael Wilton recently spoke to Shut Up & Rock On about the progress of the songwriting sessions for the band’s next studio album, which is tentatively due in early 2018.
“After extensive touring, we’ve just been kind of doing sporadic touring this year,” he said. “And everybody’s writing and putting together songs and demos. We’ve got twelve [tracks] already that are with the producer right now, and he really likes ’em. And we’re just gonna keep writing till we get a chance and get things started as far as pre-production, which should be very soon. We’re in August right now, so I think, like, maybe in September or October, we should get [in the studio]. But we’d really like to get something out by next spring.”
