QUEENSRŸCHE Singer To Begin Work On Second Solo Album

QUEENSRŸCHE frontman Geoff Tate has revealed to MySanAntonio.com that he is working on the material for his second solo album, tentatively due before the end of 2004 through Sanctuary Records.

"It's not difficult to balance the solo work with QUEENSRŸCHE," Geoff said. "It's more difficult to find the time. I'm trying to devote six months to QUEENSRŸCHE and six months to other things I'm interested in. On the solo record I use different musicians, classical, R&B and jazz players. I wanted to hear my voice in a different template. I feel incredibly successful just making the [solo] record. It worked for me."

In other news, QUEENSRŸCHE have selected the track "Losing Myself" as the next single from their latest CD, "Tribe". It heads to radio on October 6. A DVD-A version of "Tribe" is planned for release on November 4, and will include the following bonus features:

- 24 bit/96 kHz DVD-Audio (MLP) and 24 bit/48 kHz Dolby Digital (AC3) 5.1 surround sound options
- A "Desert Dance" live performance video
- A QUEENSRŸCHE Photo Gallery
