The legal battle between Queensryche and ousted singer Geoff Tate continues. Tate sought a preliminary injunction to keep Queensryche from touring and operating under the band name, but the injunction was denied on July 13. The request is part of a lawsuit filed in Washington state court,with Tate claiming he was illegally fired from the band, among other things.
As the Queensryche legal battle continues to heat up over naming rights, the latest allegations are coming from a sworn declaration submitted by producer Jason Slater. Slater's history with Queensryche includes producing their last three studio releases.
The mudslinging in the Geoff Tate vs. the rest of the members of Queensryche lawsuit continues. Remaining 'Rychers Michael Wilton, Eddie Jackson and Scott Rockenfield want to continue on as Queensryche with a new singer, while Tate is trying to stop them from using the name. The remaining members filed a response to Tate's motion to deny their plans, and now, Tate filed another reply declaration last Thursday, July 12, which was obtained by Blabbermouth.
Queensryche have been subject to one of the most venomous splits in recent history. We've all heard rumors about former vocalist Geoff Tate feuding with the other Queensryche members, but a new statement from guitarist Michael Wilton details a violent and chaotic scenario, which seems to have led to Tate's exit from the band.
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).
