Earlier this week, Queensryche and their former frontman Geoff Tate revealed that a settlement had been reached that detailed each act's future plans concerning the name. The remaining members of the band will retain the name, while Tate has obtained the right to perform the group's 'Operation: Mindcrime' album and its sequel. But before the agreement kicks in, Tate will have one final trek under the Queensryche moniker that he's utilized over the past year since his ousting from the band.
After some very public feuding, it appears as though Queensyrche and their former frontman Geoff Tate have come to an amicable split. While nothing was confirmed as of last week, it was noticeable that Tate's website was now billing him as "The Voice of Queensryche," suggesting that the long-rumored settlement had been finalized.
As we are well aware, there are currently two version of Queensryche performing and releasing studio albums. This can be confusing for fans who may not keep up with music news and are more casual fans than devoted followers.
