INTERVIEW: Mail Tribune (Michael Wilton)

If the title hadn’t already been famously used, Queensryche might have named its 2015 album “Back to the Future.” The album — actually titled “Condition Human” — is all about the band embracing its roots while keeping an eye on the future, says guitarist Michael Wilton.

“Obviously, the musicianship is there,” Wilton says during a telephone interview. “We brought back its depth and thought-provoking lyrics. That’s something that Queensryche’s been known for. For a lot of people, our early albums took a few listens to get it going with them and understand where the band was going, but the music had depth. There were innovative things happening. It was great creative energy. We tried to bring the spirit of that back with ‘Condition Human.’ ”
