Mexico’s metal podcast “Familia Perro” (web site) recently conducted an interview with vocalist Geoff Tate of Seattle progressive rockers QUEENSRŸCHE. During the chat, which can be streamed using the audio player below, Tate talked about the band’s recent album “Dedicate To Chaos”; playing alongside his son-in-law, QUEENSRŸCHE guitarist Parker Lundgren; the collaboration with former member Chris DeGarmo; and why he has so many stories that are ready to be turned into future QUEENSRŸCHEconcept albums.
QUEENSRŸCHE singer Geoff Tate told Billboard.com that the band is already starting work on its next album despite having just released its 12th LP, “Dedicated To Chaos”, in late June.
“We kind of have that practice, to jump from one to the next,” he explains. “It’s what drives us to get up in the morning, the new music, writing the music. If we don’t do that, we’re just resting on our laurels and playing songs we’ve played a million times before, and none of us want to do that.”
Tate says QUEENSRŸCHE is currently “putting some sketches together and discussing direction and that kind of thing,” and he expects some songs will start to surface while the group is on the road. “We have studios with us at all times,” he notes. “If you come backstage at any given show, we have a room set up, everybody here and there, working away. It looks like a laboratory. That really keeps the music flowing, too.”
