Geoff Tate’s QUEENSRYCHE: Deluxe Version Of “Frequency Unknown” Due Early This Month

Monday, 3rd November 2014

The now-defunct Geoff Tate incarnation of QUEENSRYCHE will release the deluxe edition of their 2013 album Frequency Unknown on November 4 via Cleopatra Records. Tate’s version of QUEENSRŸCHE included longtime associate Kelly Gray plus former QUIET RIOT and OZZY OSBOURNE bassist Rudy Sarzo and legendary AC/DC/DIO drummer Simon Wright. This group quickly recorded and released Frequency Unknown, and though the album earned some praise from critics, complaints began to surface about the quality of the album’s mix. In response, Cleopatra Records commissioned multi-instrumentalist and producer Billy Sherwood (of YES) to remix the entire album. However, due to schedule restrictions, Sherwood was never able to complete his mix… until now.

Cleopatra, in association with Deadline Music, proudly announces a whole new Frequency. Coming November 4, a special limited-edition deluxe reissue of Frequency Unknown will be released. Packaged in a striking 2CD digipak, the deluxe edition includes the original album plus a full-length bonus disc of Sherwood’s complete reimagining of the album. Many of the songs were rearranged almost from scratch, with Sherwood adding orchestral arrangements and his own unique spin on these compositions.
