QUEENSRŸCHE's GEOFF TATE: "We Have Plans To Be A Band For A Long Time"

QUEENSRŸCHE have talked out their differences and have no plans to disband anytime in the near future, frontman Geoff Tate has confirmed via the group's official web site.

Responding to the mounting concern by the group's fans over the interview conducted with the singer by Cleveland, Ohio's WMMS 100.7 FM this past Sunday, June 30th in which Geoff indicated that all communication between the individual band members was being done strictly through business managers and lawyers, Tate stated the following: "In regard to the interview on WMMS, airing one's true feelings sometimes leads to reconciliation. Because of that interview ALL of QUEENSRŸCHE got together and we hashed out our thoughts and feelings over the phone. I am elated to say that we are working together better then we have in years and I am confident now that we will be able to deliver you an album finally worthy of the name QUEENSRŸCHE. Any relationship will hit snags now and again but we have made it through so much already and we have plans to be a band for a long time. Thanks for listening."

Meanwhile, QUEENSRŸCHE drummer Scott Rockenfield issued a statement of his own in an attempt to put the fans' minds at ease over the aforementioned interview.

"As far as QUEENSRŸCHE is concerned, I know that some of you have been confused about some recent interviews that have been done, and I feel that you should all know that Michael, Eddie and myself have been hard at work in the recording studio, and we have come up with some VERY heavy and DARK material for the new QUEENSRŸCHE release," Scott said. "We have been recording solid for the last two weeks, and so far all of the music is falling right into place for us! We are having a lot of fun working on this new material, and are excited to have everyone hear it!! Sanctuary Records is very pleased with our progress and they are expecting this to be an extremely unique record for QUEENSRŸCHE. We will actually be taking a break this weekend and the three of us and our families are going to have a long overdue barbeque together to clear our heads for next week's recordings..."
