Hear Geoff Tate’s Queensryche album
Geoff Tate has made his Queensryche album Frequency Unknown available for streaming. Hear it below.
It’s set for release on April 23, and features the work of bassist Rudy Sarzo, guitarist Kelly Gray, keyboardist Randy Gane, guitarist Robert Sarzo and drummer Simon Wright. Guest spots come from KK Downing, Chris Poland, Ty Tabor, Paul Bostaph, Lita Ford, Brad Gillis, Dave Meniketti and Craig Locicero.
The album consists of ten new tracks plus four reworked Queensryche classics: Silent Lucidity, Empire, Jet City Woman and I Don’t Believe In Love.
It’s released two months ahead of the upcoming album from the version of Queensryche which fired Tate last year – but the frontman’s progress has been far from straightforward, with lineup changes and mixing issues getting in the way.
Tate recently said: “We were a little rushed on the mixing end of it, so we’re having some of the songs remixed before the album comes out. That’s typical with records – you have to have them in on time. Luckily, with this situation, we get to go back and correct some areas where we thought it was kind of lacking. I’ve done that on probably three quarters of the records I’ve ever made.”
Meanwhile, former Queensryche backing singer Pamela Moore – who appeared on 1988′s Operation: Mindcrime and its 2006 sequel – will release hew own album, Resurrect Me, on May 14.
