QUEENSRŸCHE have released a music video for their song "Hellfire", which spotlights the Malaysian passenger flight crisis in 2014.
Speaking about the influence and subject matter for the clip, QUEENSRŸCHE vocalist Todd La Torre said: “‘Hellfire’ is a depiction primarily based on the tragic events surrounding the Malaysian airline flight MH17. Despite the storyline’s foundation, the lyrical and visual narrative transcends into other pertinent, global subject matters. Civil unrest, guerrilla warfare, media propaganda, and social inequalities are just some examples of the multifaceted issues marbled throughout ‘Hellfire’. A poignant illustration of an unfortunate yet timeless reality.”
The band’s name is uttered in the same breath as many of the groups they looked to as influences and others who arose as peers. QUEENSRŸCHE built a dedicated legion of fans traveling the globe on tour with fellow rock giants like IRON MAIDEN, GUNS N’ ROSES, METALLICA, JUDAS PRIEST and DEF LEPPARD. In recent years, they’ve consistently delivered high-octane live shows combining the hungry fire of a new band with the tempered experience of master showmen. Even with eleven gold and platinum plaques and several Top 10 hard rock anthems woven into the very fiber of the genre, QUEENSRŸCHE won’t relent. In fact, they are in the throes of a jaw-dropping creative resurgence.
Today's tune "Hellfire" is taken from the bands fifteenth studio album "Condition Hüman". The album was released on October 2, 2015 through Century Media.
