Vocalist Todd La Torre speaks with Mick McDonald about the Condition Human album, touring with the Scorpions, and their upcoming headlining tour.

Todd La Torre has firmly established his place as the vocalist of Queensryche over the past few years. Their latest album, Condition Human, debuted in the top 30 on Billboard and has sold in excess of 20,000 copies since its release. This is the second album with La Torre on vocals and the first that he has had 100% creative input on.

Fresh off the road after a well-received tour opening for the Scorpions, Queensryche are now preparing for a headlining tour in January. Todd spoke with National Rock Review about their plans for the upcoming tour, details of the new album, and how he has become accepted in the music industry by the musicians he idolized growing up.
