Singer Geoff Tate — who was booted from Queensrÿche not that long ago — is striking back.
On his official Facebook page, in a message titled “Queensrÿche Starring Geoff Tate The Original Voice,” Tate revealed that “this fall, Geoff Tate electric band will be releasing his new solo metal album on InsideOut Music, which features such labelmates as King’s X, Fates Warning, Pain Of Salvation and Dream Theater’s frontman James LaBrie.
“Geoff Tate solo tour dates with Alice Cooper beginning in November.
“Watch for the announcement of the upcoming 2013 Queensrÿche anniversary tour featuring an all-star lineup, starring Geoff Tate, the longtime creative and driving force behind the band, whose vocals can be heard on every Queensrÿche song ever released!”
