I called it weeks ago and now the split is official:
Geoff Tate is OUT of Queensryche.
He has been replaced by Crimson Glory/Rising West singer Todd La Torre.
After the now-infamous “knife incident” news, this really comes as no surprise. The only consolation to fans is that Rising West (which is now actually Queensryche considering the membership is now identical) played exclusively material from the first 5 QR records. Hopefully this means a return to the metal, and an end to stuff like Tribe….

DOUBLE UPDATE WITH GRAVY:
Todd LaTorre reports that he is in both Queensryche AND Crimson Glory, as both prepare material for new albums! He also states: “Queensryche enters a new chapter; buckle up.”
