New LP "Frequency Unknown" Pulled By Geoff Tate's Queensryche After Singer Hears It

Geoff Tate has pulled the upcoming "Frequency Unknown" LP from his version of Queensryche, which consists of the singer and guest musicians. The album is due out later this month through Cleopatra Records, but could be delayed due to what was termed as "sound problems." Apparently, after the album was pressed and packaged for release, the disgruntled singer finally listened to it and was not satisfied at all with what he heard. Employing the services of a new producer/engineer, Tate hopes to correct what now has been dubbed "soundryche" without having to re-record his vocal tracks. The band's former producer indicated that he was just following the direction indicated through the album's literal title and had no idea there was any "hidden message" to the "other Queensryche."

In what can only be deemed as an "odd coincidence," the album was pulled just after Scott Rockenfield's Queenryche, featuring Todd La Torre on vocals, released the new track "Redemption," from the band's upcoming, yet untitled album, due out on June 10, 2013 (EU) and June 11, 2013 (North America).

Ha! I heard the samples on iTunes, and yeah, they were pretty bad.

But how bad is bad, I wonder, if even Tate, who's been making terrible records since 2006 with his band of outside writers, thinks the album is bad.

Did Tate himself pull the album, or did the record company do it?

I’m glad this isn’t true. The Tate train wreck is too much fun to witness.
They were even going to remix the album and release a second remixed version and now the producer Billy Sherwood has pulled out as well.
The whole album is one giant cluster f*** but that's what happens when you rush your product just for the sake of being first out the gate.
Sorry but after what Kelly Gray did to Nevermore’s Enemies of Reality I cannot believe anyone would work with him.
