Todd La Tore on Tate's Queensryche: 'It's a Group of Great Musicians, but That's Not Queensryche'
Queensryche singer Todd La Torre recently discussed the ongoing drama the band is going through, which still seems to be in the spotlight when it comes to Queensryche. During a chat with London Rocks, the vocalist stated that the entire situation with former singer Geoff Tate isn't something the group is paying much attention to, but also admitted that "it's everywhere on the Internet, so you can't avoid it." "There's a trial in November that will determine the [Queensryche] name - who gets that - and I feel very confident, everyone on our side feels very confident that Michael [Wilton] and Scott [Rockenfield] And Eddie [Jackson] will be awarded the name." The singer continued, saying, "And obviously, it'll boil down to whatever kind of corporate contracts are established and put in place and that kind of a thing. I'm sure there will have to be some type of financial compensation for whichever side gets it. But these guys were the majority, they were the songwriters." As far as Tate-fronted version of the group goes, La Torre gave each of the band members nothing but props, but also stressed that its simply not Queensryche. "I know that on [Geoff's] record, he had him and two other writers that aren't even in the band," he said. "And those guys that play on that record are not the guys that you see on the stage. So it's a group of great musicians that he has joining him, but that's not Queensryche." Meanwhile, La Torre-fronted Queensryche edition streamed their new self-titled effort in full, Blabbermouth reports. The record is set for a June 25 release via Century Media Records and will mark La Torre's studio debut with the band. You can check out the stream below.
