Geoff Tate on Album Remix: 'It Was Lacking'
Geoff Tate has explained why he had to remix his new Queensryche album "Frequency Unknown." Some fans were unhappy with early preview samples of his album, but a remix with engineer Billy Sherwood was soon cancelled. Now it seems that Tate has gone ahead with a remix with someone else, and admits that his first mix wasn't good enough and needed a fix. "We were a little rushed on the mixing end of it, so after listening to it back, we're having some of the songs remixed now before the album comes out. But that's typical with records - you have to have them in on time. So sometimes you compromise in areas," he explained on The Continental Breakfast radio show. He continued: "Luckily, with this situation, we get to go back and correct some areas in the sound where we thought it was kind of lacking. So that's fine. I've done that on ... gosh ... probably three quarters of the records I've ever made. It's no new thing, but it's a luxury when you get to fix it." "Frequency Unknown" is Tate's first album since being fired by the original Queensryche lineup last year. Along with 10 original tracks, it will feature four bonus re-recordings of classic Queensryche songs. The original Queensryche are also working on a new album, replacing Tate with singer Todd La Torre, the studio effort is due to release as June 11 in the US.
