Geoff Tate, the legendary Queensryche frontman and one of the most acclaimed vocalists in the history of hard rock and Heavy Metal, has signed a worldwide recording contract with Insideout Music.

"I'm very excited to join forces with InsideOut Music," says Geoff of his multi-album deal. "They are very committed to progressive music and care deeply for their artists, working together with them to bring music lovers worldwide some of the most compelling rock music available."

As the frontman of Queensryche, Geoff Tate has sold more than 20 million records and received four Grammy nominations. The band's landmark concept album 'Operation: Mindcrime' thrust their unique social consciousness, expertly crafted lyrics and progressive style into the national spotlight in 1988, and was followed by 'Empire' in 1990, the album that delivered the band to arena-headlining status and sold more than three million albums on the back of hit singles 'Silent Lucidity' and 'Jet City Woman'.

By the time Queensryche released 'Promised Land' in 1994, Tate was universally acknowledged as one of the greatest frontmen in rock and Metal, and a driving force behind progressive Metal's most innovative force in mainstream music.

Queensryche have released 12 studio albums, with one of their most overlooked gems being 'American Soldier' in 2009, Tate's ambitious concept album that explores the consequences of war as told through the voices of veterans.

"Obviously, we at the label have been fans of Geoff for a long time," says InsideOut Music founder Thomas Waber. "We are looking forward to working with such a renowned musician - welcome to the InsideOut Music family!"

Geoff Tate is currently finishing production on his first InsideOut Music release. The album is planned for release this fall, with details to be announced in the coming weeks.

Tate joins an InsideOut Music roster that includes Devin Townsend, Genesis guitarist Steve Hackett, King's X, Fates Warning, Dream Theater frontman James Labrie, The Flower Kings, Arjen Anthony Lucassen, Pain Of Salvation and more.


WACKEN WINTER NIGHTS IS HEAVY METAL WONDERLAND

wacken

Wacken Winter Nights 2018 takes place between February 23rd and 25th 2018 and the great news is that you can now experience a full-on, top class German Metal Festival easily and affordably.

It only takes an hour to fly to Hamburg from London and we've had longer journeys than that within the capital and they were certainly more expensive than the £33 air ticket that just appeared in our 'flights to Wacken Winter Nights' search.

Wacken Winter Nights is organised by the same team who are responsible for the world's greatest Metal festival, Wacken-Open-Air and the 2018 bill includes Skyclad, Orphaned Land, Elvenking, Finntroll, Grave Digger, Aeverium, Comes Vagantes, Coppelius, Corvus Corax, Die Pressgëng, Elvellon, Heimataerde, Hell-O-Matic, Ignis Fatuu, Ingrimm, Irdorath, Johnny Deathshadow, Krayenzeit, Letzte Instanz, Mr Hurley und die Pulveraffen, Pampatut, Pat Razket, Schandmaul, Sündenrausch, The Aberlour's, The Moon And The Nightspirit, Torfrock, Visions Of Atlantis, Vroudenspil, Wind Rose and more.



Besides this rich billing of superb Metal bands, there is so much more to see in the festival area including the medieval market and also the walking acts and jugglers you will meet at the theme worlds, including Robert Blake, three-time World Cup winner of street magic.

Wacken Winter Nights is something not to be missed and you can check out the amazing ticket and accommodation prices right here.

We just priced up the whole four day trip with hotels, flights, shuttles and festival tickets for less than £300 and we don't think you will get a better value festival than that, anywhere.
