It’s hard to imagine Queensryche without singer Geoff Tate, but with all the controversy shrouding both parties and the tumultuous past few months, that’s exactly where things currently sit, leaving fans scratching their heads.
Less than a week after being replaced by Todd La Torre, longtime Queensryche singer Geoff Tate has signed a worldwide record deal with InsideOut Music. Even before parting ways with Queensryche, Tate had a summer acoustic solo tour planned as he continued to work on a solo effort.
After recent rumblings of tension and rumored incidents, veteran rockers Queensryche have parted ways with singer Geoff Tate. They've announced that Crimson Glory’s Todd La Torre is their new singer and have put their current tour dates on hold while they work on revised routing.
Though the members of Queensryche have stated that they are still a band and plan to continue even though the new project Rising West recently launched, it's clear there's still some tensions left between the members and singer Geoff Tate.
The members of Queensryche have played their hometown of Seattle many times before, but never under the guise of the new band Rising West. The band, which is essentially the same lineup with the exception of Todd La Torre taking over for Geoff Tate, were welcomed with open arms during their first-ever performance Friday night (June 8).
In this Moment vocalist Maria Brink will join Queensryche onboard the upcoming ShipRocked cruise to play to role of Sister Mary when Queensryche perform their 1988 concept album ‘Operation: Mindcrime’ in its entirety. ShipRocked launches Nov. 14 from Ft. Lauderdale, Fla.
