The video for "If I Were King," the first single from Queensrÿche's highly anticipated new album "American Soldier", has received a worldwide debut on Monday, March 23 at Noon ET on, home of the largest military and veteran membership organization. The military community site, 10 million members strong, will also feature a podcast interview with lead singer Geoff Tate as well as an op-ed column that he wrote exclusively for the site.

The video can be viewed here.

The video for "If I Were King" was directed by J. Andrew Colletti and Jonathan Williams and addresses the same themes of loss and healing that are the focus of the track. The song was written based on an interview Tate conducted with Sean Lenahan, a veteran of U.S. conflicts in Somalia and Kosovo.

In the meantime, also a listening party which is the entire last half of the record has been made available online. The tracklist (actual last 6 tracks on album) is as follows:

07. Middle Of Hell
08. If I Were King
09. Man Down!
10. Remember Me
11. Home Again
12. The Voice

The songs are available for streaming in the following formats:

| Quicktime | Windows Media Audio | RealPlayer |
