Now that a settlement has been reached with Geoff Tate over the ownership of the Queensrÿche name and brand, the band has already begun writing new material for the follow-up to their 2013 album Queensrÿche. The new album is tentatively scheduled for release in early summer 2015. Besides that, the band also disclosed more details about the settlement.
It appears like there will no longer be two Queensrÿches. Singer Geoff Tate and his former band mates have reached an agreement and the legal battle is over. After two different versions of Queensrÿche appeared following a split with the long-time singer, a lawsuit had resulted in a ruling that each side could use the same name until the case went to trial or was settled. Both sides now seem relieved with the outcome and are ready to move on. Queensrÿche, fronted by Todd La Torre, will continue touring and recording as Queensrÿche while Geoff Tate will pursue other endeavours and have exclusive rights to perform Operation: Mindcrime I and II in their entirety.
Queensrÿche, now fronted by Todd La Torre, recently filmed a conceptual mini-movie for the tracks "Spore", "Midnight Lullaby","A World Without" and "X2" from their newest self-titled album. The 10-plus minute story, dubbed Queensrÿche: Ad Lucem ("Towards the light"), was filmed by director Daniel Andres Gomez Bagby with producer Marco De Molina on location at Central City Stages in Los Angeles and today you get to watch it. The band shared the final result online after a live chat with fans. It is now available for your viewing pleasure below. How do you think it turned out?

As if having two Queensrÿches wasn't bizarre enough, now guitarist Glen Drover (ex-Megadeth) decided to leave Geoff Tate's version of Queensrÿche before they hit the road. Remember that announcement where Geoff Tate said that Rudy Sarzo, Bobby Blotzer, Glen Drover, Kelly Gray and Randy Gane would join him on future musical endeavours and tours under the Queensrÿche moniker? Well, Glen Drover is no longer part of that project.
This soap opera is brought to you by Mr. Geoff Tate. The singer has announced a new Queensrÿche line-up that will join him in future musical endeavours and plans an anniversary tour. Confused? Well, it now seems that we have two Queensrÿches, one with Geoff Tate and the newly recruited Rudy Sarzo, Bobby Blotzer, Glen Drover, Kelly Gray and Randy Gane, and the other one which is fronted by Todd La Torre.
Billboard is reporting that the inevitable happened. Queensrÿche has officially announced that the band will continue without iconic lead vocalist Geoff Tate, who will be replaced by Crimson Glory singer Todd La Torre.
