Music Choice, the world’s largest provider of commercial-free digital music via cable, satellite and the Internet, today announced that, the Cranberries and Queensryche are the featured artists for the October concert series.

Music Choice’s concert series is a cable-exclusive program, reaching 25 million households across the country. Every month, the show delivers a fresh array of varied musical formats from an eclectic mix of artists viewers won’t find on other channels. The concert series features a variety of artists in a 60-minute show with live performances and interview segments. Music Choice also airs “Street Team,” a reality based show that follows a group of kids on the road with emerging bands.

Music Choice presents the Cranberries who perform past hits and new songs, including “Time is Ticking Out” and “Analyse” off their new album Wake Up And Smell The Coffee. The show will air between October 15th and October 28th. Check or your local cable company for specific times. The Irish band quickly became international stars in the early ’90s after releasing their debut album Everybody Else Is Doing It, So Why Can’t We?, fueled by their hit singles “Linger” and “Dreams.” Over the past decade, the Cranberries have sold 33 million records and won fans around the world thanks to their tight arrangements, inerrant melodic instincts, probing songs and, the crystalline vocals of Dolores O’Riordan. The Cranberries are in the best condition ever; both musically and personally and with their new album they make an earnest, tuneful plea to seize the day while cherishing every moment of life.

Music Choice presents Queensryche who perform songs, including “Silent Lucidity” and “Empire” off their Sanctuary Records new, double live album, Live Evolution. The show will air between October 1st and October 7th. Check or your local cable company for specific times. Queensryche’s entire career can be summed up in the word integrity. The GRAMMY ®-nominated group has sold over 20 million albums worldwide including the bonafide classics Operation Mindcrime, Promised Land and Empire, which boasted the stripped-down rock single “Silent Lucidity,” a Top 10 hit in November 1991. Queensryche has earned a rightful place alongside Pink Floyd, Iron Maiden and Rush in the pantheon of the world’s greatest progressive hard rock bands, and their new double live album, Live Evolution, will be a significant addition to the legacy.

Music Choice presents “Street Team,” the next generation of rock & roll television with Columbia Records, Music Choice and Notorious Pictures Inc. This month, “Street Team” will feature performances and behind the scenes glimpses into the some of today’s hottest artists Jermain Dupri, Pete Yorn and Lost Prophets. Shows air between October 8th and October 14th. Check or your local cable company for specific times.
