Tate‘s second solo album, “Kings Thieves”, will be released on November 6 via InsideOut Music.

“My goal with this record was to make a solid rock album,” said Tate. “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.”

Tate previously told about the musical direction of his forthcoming CD, “Well, it’s very different from my last one, for sure. It’s a new bunch of people I’ve been working with to write and record it, so that changes things. When you’re working with different people, it really changes the record. This one is really hard rock. The last one was really all over the place with different styles of music and everything, but this one really keeps with the hard rock style. It does it in kind of a different way — more of my way or what I would envision. I guess it’s experimental in some ways, while in others it’s very traditional. What I tried to do was take traditional rock instrumentation and apply it in kind of a different song structure.”

Tate released his first solo CD in 2002 on Sanctuary Records. Self-titled, the LP was a huge departure from the work he had previously done with QUEENSRŸCHE.
