So Scott Rockenfield just announced that next two singles will be "Spore" and "A World Without."

The two of those songs were shot as videos in a 10-minute "mini-movie" format. It's conceptual, but also shows the band as well. But both songs are combined as a small film.

It's great to see my favorite song on the album is going to be a single! A World Without is great too.

I'm interested how they market it and what the reaction will be. I don't recall anyone who has made a 10-minute feature film with two songs combined (I assume one flows into the other) before. I think it's somewhat novel, although admittedly, I'm not sure.

Looking forward to it. I imagine it'll probably get released next week, being a week before the European tour starts. Hopefully that means those two songs will also be played live for the European crowds, along with Redemption, Where Dreams Go to Die and Fallout. That makes five songs from the new record, which is a good representation from it.

Yeah, that's really cool. Looking forward to that mini movie! :metal: And I do hope we'll be treated to those songs on the European tour, as well as hopefully 'Don't Look Back' and 'Vindication'.

Stone Sour did something similar with "Gone Sovereign" and "Absolute Zero"... if done right, it can be pretty effective. The two QR songs have a similar tone, too, so I think it's going to be great. Very exciting!

Also, until the mini movie is released, it's anyone's guess how the storyline will play out and which song will come first.

If the album's order is followed (i.e. 'Spore' as the first song, 'Midnight Lullaby/A World Without' as the second), it would be a very different mood than if that order were reversed. Put those lyrics next to each other and you'll know what I mean...

When I refer to Queensryche, I am talking about the original band with Todd LaTorre on vocals. When I say 'Myth' I am talking about Tate's band.

I think SAMSON, Bruce Dickinson's old band did  a mini-movie with two videos. Everything old is new again... COOL again. I really like Spore. It sounds like a song that only QR, and THIS one could have done. Many rock songs and ballads could have been done by other bands, but songs like NM156 and Promised Land could only have been done by QR, and Spore has that same level of distinction. MAYBE Outer Limits-era Voivod could have done a song like Spore, but that is a stretch even for a Voivod fan like me. It is a VERY wise choice for the band to be pushing Spore out there.

Maybe they'll be like two videos that can be viewed on their own, but also combined together. Like Breaking the Silence and I Don't Believe in Love, but a bit more connected. That'd be awesome.  :metal:

Didn't Guns 'N Roses do a three song mini movie video with "Don't Cry", "November Rain", and "Estranged"?

Either way, this is exciting!

I don't know what they have up their sleeve but the two songs have totally different vibes so this should be interesting. Looking forward to it!

As I Lay Dying's "Nothing Left" and "The Sound of Truth" videos share a story line. It's a great concept. More bands should do it.

Wow. This is big news. These are my two favorite tracks on the album so I'm delighted! It will be very interesting to see what gets presented, but remember we have the teaser picture of a beaten up Parker. It's not much to go on for speculation, but it's a start.

Incidentally, Alice Cooper made a 10-minute film from his "Along Came a Spider" concept album that incorporated the songs "Vengeance is Mind, [In Touch with] your Feminine Side, and Killed By Love." It was shot very professionally. Since it came from a concept album, the material lent itself to a visual narrative easily (and had Slash on guitar, so that's always a plus).

Thinking in terms of linking the songs together, to me it would make sense to start with "A World Without" and then move into "Spore." AWW is very depressing and introspective, whereas Spore is introspective but ends as if the protagonist finally gets beyond the depression and into a place of hope. That's just based on the lyrics, but if the new movie-video will have speaking parts and non-musical action, I suppose anything is possible.
