After months of speculation and very public strife with singer Geoff Tate, legendary Seattle rockers Queensrÿche are pleased to announce the addition of Todd La Torre to their lineup.
Known for his work with progressive metal legends Crimson Glory, Todd steps in to assume the duties of lead vocalist. After a long rumored parting of ways with original vocalist Tate, Queensrÿche plan to continue making the music that has garnered them a devoted legion of fans around the world. The band has already begun playing live together with two successful shows in their home city of Seattle under the name Rising West. The shows were well-received and Todd proves to be a natural addition to the Queensrÿche lineup. Queensrÿche is Todd Le Torre (Vocals), Michael Wilton (Guitars), Parker Lundgren (Guitars), Eddie Jackson (Bass) and Scott Rockenfield (Drums).
"Over the past few months, there have been growing creative differences within Queensrÿche. We want our fans to know that we hoped to find a common resolution, but in the end parting ways with Geoff was the best way for everyone to move forward in a positive direction. We wish him the best of luck with all of his future endeavors. We can't wait to bring Queensrÿche to our fans with Todd behind the microphone" states drummer and band founder Scott Rockenfield.
All scheduled Queensrÿche tour dates are on hold at present time and revised routing is being worked on. Fans can check the band's website for all of the latest tour information as it becomes available.
Sometimes change is good.
