Queensryche frontman Geoff Tate has signed a worldwide recording contract with Inside Out Music. “I’m very excited to join forces with InsideOut Music,” Tate said about of his multi-album deal. “They are very committed to progressive music and care deeply for their artists, working together with them to bring music lovers worldwide some of the most compelling rock music available.”
As the frontman of Queensryche, Tate has sold more than 20 million records and received four Grammy nominations. The band’s landmark concept album ‘Operation: Mindcrime’ thrust their unique social consciousness, expertly crafted lyrics and progressive style into the national spotlight in 1988, and was followed by ‘Empire’ in 1990, the album that delivered the band to arena-headlining status and sold more than three million albums on the back of hit singles ‘Silent Lucidity’ and ‘Jet City Woman’. Queensryche have released 12 studio albums. Tate’s only prior solo album was a self-titled release in 2002 on Sanctuary Records.
“Obviously, we at the label have been fans of Geoff for a long time,” Inside Out Music founder Thomas Waber said. “We are looking forward to working with such a renowned musician – welcome to the InsideOut Music family!”
Tate is finishing production on his first Inside Out Music release. The album is planned for release this fall, with details to be announced in the coming weeks.
