Well, you can't say Queensryche singer Geoff Tate isn't a good sport. In a new YouTube clip, the vocalist reacts to a barrage of incredibly vitriolic fan reviews of the group's new album, 'Frequency Unknown.'
The video is the result of a unique contest that Tate and his record label dreamed up to promote the recent release, which has proven qui
When you take your former bandmates to court, start a new band with the same name, and release a record with a big 'F.U.' on the cover, you're pretty much picking a fight -- so Geoff Tate can't be surprised that his Queensryche replacement, Todd La Torre, isn't mincing words about where things stand between them.
Simply hate the new album from Geoff Tate's Queensryche? Interested in winning a bunch of Queensryche-related goodies anyway? Here's your chance to blow off some stream, and you might just claim some cool prizes from Tate.
Leading up to the release on Tuesday (April 23) of ‘Frequency Unknown’ from Geoff Tate’s Queensryche, fans were quite critical of the quality of the sound they heard through previews made available on digital retailers. Tate and company have come to the table with a solution though, remixing the disc and offering free replacements to any fans that purchased the release and are unhappy.
The remarkable drama surrounding Queensryche continues, as the Geoff Tate edition of the band will remix its forthcoming album 'Frequency Unknown.' His label, Deadline Music/Cleopatra Records, made the decision after fans complained about the sound on the samples they released.

The members of Queensryche that split with vocalist Geoff Tate last summer have signed a new record deal with Century Media Records, and announced their first album with vocalist Todd La Torreis on the way.

That injunction was denied last July.
