Geoff Tate Still Hating Queensryche, Sevendust Side Group Announce Tour — Angel’s Rock Report
Remember I told you about Queensryche‘s Geoff Tate allegedly pulling a knife on the rest of the band during a backstage argument? Sounds like he and the rest of the band definitely have some problems to work out. The other guys — who started a new group called Rising West with Crimson Glory vocalist Todd La Torre after a rumored backstage fight in April — now say they can’t even log onto Queensryche’s Facebook page. They’ve posted a message on the Rising West Facebook page saying, “We are being denied access to our own Facebook page and website (meaning Queensryche), so please spread the word for about Rising West.”
We’ll see for certain by Monday if this rift is even worse — Queenryche is scheduled to play the first of back-to-back shows in Valley City, Utah that night.
Call Me No One, the side project of Sevendust guitarist Clint Lowery and drummer Morgan Rose, will hit the road next month. The band’s tour kicks off July 27th in Fort Wayne, Indiana and visits 12 cities before wrapping up August 11th in Broussard, Louisiana.
And that’s really all I have for today. Make sure you catch my show on Monday for my mega announcement.
