...QUEENSRYCHE have released an audio stream of "Resistance" recorded live in London in celebration of the release of the 20th Anniversary Edition of "Empire" on November 9th. Says the band's Geoff Tate: "The song 'Resistance' was a song written about protecting the environment. This is a cause I felt connected to when we wrote the song and a cause I still feel strongly about today." Adds guitarist Michael "Whip" Wilton: "'Resistance' was one of the last songs recorded for 'Empire.' I had the parts ready and Chris (DeGarmo) and I pieced the music together for Geoff to sing this idea he had about the resistance in America at the time. The song recorded fast and my solo was a one taker. Kind of a whip jig." To hear the live version for yourself, visit this link:
