Geoff Tate Seemingly Loses Queensryche Rights, Now Presents Himself as 'Voice of Queensryche'
In what might turn out to be the preview of upcoming Queensryche court settling, singer Geoff Tate has made adjustments to his official website and is now presenting himself as "the voice of Queensryche."

Further hinting that he no longer has rights to the Ryche moniker, the Todd La Torre-fronted edition of the band is referred to as "Queensryche without Geoff Tate" in the site's navigation.

As recently reported, Tate and his former bandmates have reached the settlement in the legal battle. Without revealing specific details, guitarist Michael Wilton noted that the case is definitely over.

"That's coming up," Wilton told Allentown Music Examiner. "What I can say is that both sides have reached an amicable settlement and it's now just a matter of time. There will be an official press release, but for now, you'll have to wait."

The official announcement shouldn't take too long now, stay tuned for more info.
