  GEOFF TATE REACHES SETTLEMENT WITH FORMER QUEENSRŸCHE BANDMATES OVER THE NAME OF THE BAND
22 April 2014





Geoff Tate, the former vocalist for Seattle heavyweights Queensrÿche, departed the band under a distinctly discordant note in 2012 after he was fired following a back-stage altercation in Brazil.

Shortly afterwards, he filed a lawsuit, part of which related to the rights to the name of the band. Since then, there have been two Queensrÿche's on the circuit - Geoff's version, and a line-up featuring his former band members and vocalist Todd La Torre.

Original guitarist Michael Wilton has revealed in an interview with The Allentown Music Examiner that a settlement has been reached that all parties are happy with.

In the interview, when asked about the resolution, Wilton said "That's coming up. 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."

He also confirmed that six demos have been made in preparation for a new album, and the band have a firm future, whatever they are called.
