"Operation: Mindcrime II" is a sequel to the 1988 "Operation: Mindcrime" album, set 18 years after the original.

Following the split between Geoff Tate and the rest of Queensrÿche in 2012, it was revealed that much of the music for this album was recorded by studio musicians due to conflicts between Tate and his band mates. Scott Rockenfield did not appear on the album at all, while most of the guitars were re-recorded by engineer Mitch Doran. Almost all of Michael Wilton's guitar tracks were replaced in this fashion.

Some of the bass tracks used are demo recordings played by producer Jason Slater, while the drum track to "I'm American" is a MIDI recording made by Doran that was not originally intended for use on the final album.
