QR revealing album cover imagery?
« on: April 25, 2013, 01:02:42 PM »

Check it out:



Apparently they are doing a piece of info or art a day from here on out, according the official QR facebook page - www.facebook.com/queensrycheofficial

Not sure if this is the cover image or something else, but here we go...

It's a rather small image, so I hope they don't drag this out for too long. That said, I like the looks so far. Seems the cover will have a darker background and the band is using a much better looking font for the band title. The font they've been using for the past year or so really doesn't work too well for them. This is more like it. :metal:

Really happy that it appears as though they aren't using the same font from their banner for the artwork.

I love how they specified "this is by no means our finished cover." 

I think it's a cool idea!  Looking good so far, haha.

Helloween did something similar with a slice-by-slice reveal of their latest album cover. Thought it was a silly marketing ploy and in fact, I didn't follow the reveal at all because I think it is a cheesy way to handle promotions.

It's kind of a lame promotion when it's an actual cover being so slowly revealed, but when it's "by no means our finished cover"... what's the point?

I think what they meant is that what they're showing isn't the finished cover. The wording was a bit poor.

I think this promo is fine. It lets some anticipation build and takes advantage of social media.

I wasn't sure, but I figured that comment was a joke about the small portion of the image. Could very well be wrong though.

That said, I'm with everyone that thinks this isn't really all that great of a promotion. It's more annoying than it is anticipating, especially if the other daily pieces are as small as this one. I'd rather not have to wait for two weeks to slowly see the whole album cover.

To be honest, I think we're over analyzing things.

It's a funny little marketing ploy to get people to check out their FB page, IMO. No harm done. A little silly, but I think the point is to get people to follow along -- and most will. Don't lie, you'll go over there and see.  :lol

agreed! and one of their responses (from Queensryche) was :

"No "guess the cover work" D*****, we just want to surprise everyone a little each day...big reveal sooner than you think"

So they probably just are teasing us a bit. By what they replied i figure we will see something substantial soon enough. I'm fine with that.

This is a great way to get people over to their FB page and maybe get a number of page likes in the process.  I don't know who is handling all the PR for the band, but they sure are doing an awesome job.  Just the fact that they interact with their "FB friends," is huge to the rebirth of this group.  Total 180 from the "person that shall not be named."

That's good to hear. And yeah, of course we'll all be following it every day. It's just a lot more nerve-wrecking is all. :biggrin:

I just love this sort of promotion! It really helps build up excitement. And they're doing it after after tatertot's album so he can't rip anything off.

???  I wonder what it's going to spell out.  Any guesses?  Can we have "R, S, T, L, N, E" for free like on Wheel of Fortune?

Yeah I'm glad they waited!

If they were to do this one day at a time, they'd need about 36 days... :lol Glad MichelD found out we won't have to wait that long!
