Queensrÿche release Take Cover
Take Cover is a cover album by Seattle-based progressive metal band Queensrÿche, released on November 13, 2007.
Its release was announced by the band on August 28, 2007. After its first week of release the album entered the Billboard Top 200 chart at No. 173, with sales of 5,500 copies. Their cover of Pink Floyd's "Welcome to the Machine" served as a single.
The idea to release an album of cover songs came from a game of "name the riff" guitarists Michael Wilton and Mike Stone would play during sound checks. The band members agreed to each choose two songs to record for the album.
This was the band's last album to feature Stone, who left in 2009.
