Queensryche Singer Vs Queensryche Singer

(Classic Rock) Todd La Torre has branded Geoff Tate's Queensryche album cover a "cheap shot." Tate's Queensryche released Frequency Unknown earlier this month. Its cover art shows a fist wearing a Queensryche 'trirych' emblem on a ring, with the capital letters F and U on either side.

La Torre's lineup have announced their own album will be self-titled and it's due out on June 24 via Century Media. They'll tour the UK in October after scheduling problems forced them to postpone a visit planned for this month.

The former Crimson Glory singer insists Tate's album isn't the real deal. He tells KNAC.com: "I don't even acknowledge it as a Queensryche album. The guys that play on the record are not the guys that you see onstage, and aren't the guys that wrote the songs. It's a revolving door, dude, it's not Queensryche. What I'm in is Queensryche."

Of Tate's title he says: "A monkey can decipher what that is. It's below the belt. To me, it's not what Queensryche was about. Queensryche wasn't about the cheap shots it was always more respectful and intelligent of that." See the cover art and read more here.
