Queensryche: Stop Using Our Name Geoff
The Queensryche saga is back in the courts again. This time the band has filed a pre-trial motion requesting that ex-singer Geoff Tate stop using the band's name until their lawsuits are resolved. The motion comes in the wake of Tate claiming that he was starting a new lineup of the band and would hit the road next year. Bassist Eddie Jackson tells Billboard, "The recent announcement of a second Queensryche lineup, upcoming tour plans and new musical direction has caused some confusion for our fans. This confusion has caused [us] to file a motion against our former vocalist to prevent him from using the name Queensryche." Queensryche are currently recording a new album with new singer Todd LaTorre.
