Queensryche Frontman Geoff Tate Reacts to ‘Frequency Unknown’ Hatred
Queensryche‘s Geoff Tate asked for harsh critiques of his new album and he got plenty of response. Tate recently launched a contestasking for people who hated the ‘Frequency Unknown’ album to videotape a rant of how much disdain they had for the disc and he would film himself reacting to their rants and post it online for the world to see.
With the responses rolling in, the vocalist braced himself for slings such as, “This is an album so bad that Jesus himself wept,” “[This disc is] the biggest s— sundae the rock and metal industry has ever seen” and “Like I wanna hear you sing like you’ve got your nuts in a vice?”
Tate rolls with the punches though, raising an intimidating eyebrow to some of the responses and laughing along to others. The nearly four-minute clip focuses primarily on a handful of ranters, but the hate parade may not be over for Tate as the clip concludes with the message, “To be continued.”
The frontman asked for the vitriol, challenging haters to step out from behind their keyboards and put a face to their opinion. There was some incentive though, as Tate offered an all-expenses paid trip to Seattle to see Queensryche perform on June 29, along with assorted VIP add-ons like meet-and-greet opportunities, special seating and a merchandise package.
