Geoff Tate has revealed a (not so) subtle message to his former bandmates in Queensryche on his new album cover.
Tate was booted from Queensryche last summer after an aggressive fallout, but went on to form his own version of the band with the same name.
His new album "Frequency Unknown" features a fist (presumably Geoff's) wearing gold rings and the letters "FU". We'll leave the letters open to your interpretation.
The album is "stupidly heavy" according to Tate's new guitarist Craig Locicero, and will also feature re-recordings of classic Queensryche songs including "Silent Lucidity", "Empire", "Jet City Woman" and "I Don't Believe In Love" as bonus tracks.
Tate's lineup might be fairly new, but he's already had a lineup shuffle. Guitarist Glen Drover dropped out early on, claiming it wasn't in his best interests to take part. Now Drover has announced plans to join the original Queensryche, who he called "the REAL Queensryche", at the Phoenix in Toronto, which Tate might not be happy to hear.
