Queensryche Rift Goes Back A Decade

(Classic Rock) Queensryche drummer Scott Rockenfield says the rift between the band and fired frontman Geoff Tate go back ten years. They're poised to release their self-titled album with new singer Todd La Torre, and streamed the full record online yesterday.

Tate was sacked in 2012 following a series of disagreements but Rockenfield says the process leading up to the band's decision started a decade ago.

"It's been, like, ten years things were starting to come uncomfortable," He tells Ghost Cult. "It was a slow process, but over time if became apparent that Michael Wilton, Eddie Jackson and I were drifting apart from Geoff, especially when it came down to the music and the general direction of Queensryche."

Rockenfield says there's a good reason they didn't take action sooner.
