As the frontman of legendary band Queensrÿche, Geoff Tate has cemented his status as one of the most acclaimed and distinctive voices in hard rock and heavy metal.
This month, Tate has released his second solo album, Kings & Thieves. But while his 2002 solo debut was more contemplative and restrained, his newest release is definitely harder edged.
“My first solo album was more introspective, and the goal was to show my influences that weren’t as obvious on Operation: Mindcrime,” explains Tate. “Having done that, I didn’t feel l needed to do it again – my goal with this record was to make a solid rock album. I wanted it to be an album that I could play live that would be both satisfying and fun, because, as a singer, you need to create a show that has a lot of dynamics to it and takes people on a ride. I’m always thinking about the show, and there need to be peaks and valleys, not just a steady line.”
You can experience songs from the new album live when Geoff Tate brings his tour to The Social on December 4, 2012. Orlando’s Born From Ashes will be opening, with a 7pm start time.
Tickets are $20 in advance, and can be purchased online, or at the door for $25 day of (if any tickets are left). There is an 18+ age limit for the show.
