    Queensryche have wrapped up a concept record called American Soldier, which is just that: the tale of a soldier, as inspired by interviews with real veterans from World War II, the Iraq war and more.

    "I was surprised to learn how little has changed through the generations," frontman Geoff Tate said in a statement. "I spoke with a Vietnam vet whose experience wasn't all that different from a soldier who fought in Somalia almost 30 years later. But what surprised me the most was how antiwar most soldiers are. To me, that makes their sacrifices even more moving."

    In related news, the band has a spring tour set from April 16 to June 5.

    American Soldier:
    1. Sliver
    2. Unafraid
    3. Hundred Mile Stare
    4. At 30,000 ft.
    5. A Dead Man's Words
    6. The Killer
    7. Middle Of Hell
    8. If I Were King
