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 contest asking 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.

Watch the video below. The Geoff Tate-led version of Queensryche’s ‘Frequency Unknown’ disc is currently in stores and can be purchased here.

To be fair, even if you hate him and the album, its actually quite a cool thing that he is doing, especially if he takes any notice of any of it.

Some of those people in the videos though ... I think they make Jesus weep as well.

Thats me in the video grabbing my balls and chugging a beer. Geoff Tate is a douchebag. He cant sing worth a fuck these days, and his new "Queensryche" album sucks....the guy who told a Rocklahoma crowd they suck, spits on his drummer, and now theres footageof him grabbing a fans smart phone and throwing it into the audience.

 

Geoff and his crappy record label ASKED for this. He isnt the only one getting exposure, My radio show has gained several 100 new listeners over this fiasco.

The dude is completely f*ckin insane.

That may be the dumbest thing I have seen. No doubt he had various people do the videos. That was evident even if you didn't see them reading everything word for word.

 

What a fuckin mess...

So fucking tell him Geoff, wtf, im ready to brainstorm for a couple days and have a few buddy's that used to write for a local morning show help me out, and make a video of my own, even though, I have not heard it, nor do I plan on listening to it, fuck think about it, you get those BSP's and V.I.P. amenity's, turn around and throw them fuckers on Ebay, or you can actually go, even though I honestly believe the mad geniuse behind this is he's pulling a huge PR scheme and when you get there your going to find out you just won what is really backstage passes to get your ass kicked, ha ha, a huge promotion to walk right into a brawl, cause if somebody (at least I speak for myself)hate an album so fucking bad, that I would go out of my way to make a video for the singer of the album of me ranting why I hate the album, the last thing I want, or want to do, is get tickets to go watch that album I fucking loathe being performed live! and meet the singer I just dumped and shit on about the album, it's really not even a catch 22, it's more of a great big joke to Tate and his boys, who are if not going to get you into a locked room and put boots to you, are certainly going to go to extensive lengths to humiliate and disrespect you, what else would they be doing, he knows you hate his album, and I think he's just going to the ends of the earth to promote his album, and teach a lesson to anyone who doesnt take his side, thats what Id do anyways.

Well count 1 more new listener, can you plug your radio show or something? does your station stream on line? most do now, but at least IM me the streamlink, I will even set my ReplayRadio to record it for me, so I dont miss it, if you cant openly post your station id because of your legal dept telling you its off limits, I completely understand that to, I still wont post my former employer and I got canned over a month ago, LOL, you can however direct us to the general area and feed us hints from there, seriously, I will listen and participate, anyone on here who has something they need or want support for from there metal brethren need to speak up, i am all about supporting your endeavors, just gotta say something.

It is quite the train wreck, isn't it?

 

I bought the CD last week just for the sheer "what the f*ck" of it, there are exactly two songs on it that are halfway decent ("Cold" and "Slave") ... the rest is a mix of "Meh" and "Zzzzzzz."

 

I figure, if and when Tate loses the rights to the Queensryche name in court later this year, the CD will have to be recalled and/or reprinted with a new band name, so it will be a collector's item. :D

And if it don't happen, at least you have a nice coaster. :)

    • I know I've posted about this hombre several times before, but apparently not in his own thread. This must change as I find him to be so awesome but no one seems to acknowledge his existence. Not just here, but his youtube channel and reach seems to be so small. Crazy for someone who produces bone crunching quality on a madly consistent basis.  Eric Dalton     -    Playing Favorites (2022) 1    .    Calling Card 2    .    Oblivion 3    .    Head in the Clouds 4    .    X My Heart 5    .    Infection 6    .    My Demons 7    .    Solace 8    .    A Part of Me 9    .    Without You 10    .    Deception     Sorry, I know I've posted this before, but his youtube channel features all three of his (excellent) albums in full if interest permits. https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCb2I3-4_UvFnWWTcXBBLPYA  
    • Interesting what bands catch on this forum and the ones that don't. To me, this is a pretty good band and I'm a bit surprised, on a forum where bands like Shiraz Lane and Bad City are appreciated, there seems to be no interest in these guys. Good band that does, for whatever reason, remind me of the likes of the aforementioned Bad City.  There's a bit of hit and miss about the debut and it's far from perfect, but a pretty cool band worthy of mention and interest on a forum such as this.  Anyway, this was one of my favourites of the album- For die-hards, I stumbled across this non-album track.  
    • New video for 'I Will Be Stronger' feat. Joel Hoekstra.    
    • Very nice piece of modern rock on offer here. Lot to like on this one.  Fame on Fire     -    Welcome to the Chaos 1    .    Intro 2    .    Welcome to the Chaos (feat. Spencer Charnas of Ice Nine Kills) 3    .    Ketamine 4    .    Cut Throat 5    .    Emo Shit (feat. Kody Lavigne) 6    .    Lost In Doubt 7    .    Robbery 8    .    Signs 9    .    Plastic Heart 10    .    Rotting Away 11    .    Back Then 12    .    Jaded 13    .    Dead or Alive      
    • Welcome, album of the year? Love this project with vigour. I snuck 'Saturday' on the playlist I put on with the kids in the car, lol. Can't wait to hear any of the songs I haven't already heard and showered in love from this. 
    • Did anyone notice these guys released another new album?  As expected, it's pretty weak and more proof of their solid decline.  HOWEVER!  There is actually a good song on it. It's only one, but I kind of clapped and cheered when I heard this. I used to love these guys so much, and still love the albums I always loved from these guys but it's been some barren years. It was good to hear them do what they used to do with great ease.      
    • Couple of okay songs, but otherwise as expected above. No surprises, exactly what you'd expect from these guys in 2022.     
    • Not every song is a hit, but another pretty decent one mini-album. I like some of the gear on this one.  Villain of the Story     -    Divided 1    .    Never Again 2    .    Jester 3    .    Karma 4    .    Under My Skin 5    .    Losing Control 6    .    Wrong 7    .    Don't Go 8    .    Divided    
    • Not sure if folk know, but they got back together and released an EP this year. Anberlin     -    Silverline 1    .    Two Graves 2    .    Nothing Lost 3    .    Body Language 4    .    Asking 5    .    Circles It's not amazing, but I do really like this song from it-  
    • Not an amazing album, but pretty solid with a couple of very nice tunes-     They have a very comprehensive youtube channel for anyone unsure and wanting to give everything a listen- https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCYECJVZLOQebjAuj_HMKLjg
