    This collection of southern boys are not the most original band in the world. They’ll never be accused of being the most musically gifted fellas in the world. Certainly, no one will ever listen to them and think, “wow, that’s really cutting edge music”. To the contrary though, release in and release out, the same thought comes to mind

    Sequels to albums, at least in my listening experience, are generally poor. The two that immediately jump to mind for me are Rob Zombie’s HELLBELLY DELUXE 2 and Meat Loaf’s BAT OUT OF HELL 2. Both releases were pretty lame, and garnered attention solely because they were named after much more historic releases in their creator’s career.

Tate recently spoke with Sean Derrick of Examiner.com, an excerpt follows:

SD: Your solo CD, Geoff Tate, came out in 2002, any plans for a second one?

GT: "Yeah. Actually we are recording that right now. I have all the songs written for it and started recording it about three weeks ago and I am in the midst of it. I am hoping to have it out by fall, that's my goal."

SD: Cool. Now will that precede a new Queensrÿche record or will it follow it?

GT: "Queensrÿche will not be doing anything major for the rest of the year. Everyone is doing solo projects/side projects and we will re-group for 2013."
