Tig’s Metal Box: Geoff Tate, Blaze Bayley, Tim ‘Ripper’ Owens to Tour
The Metal Box is a weekly web series posted each Friday where we discuss all things hard rock and heavy metal: news, videos, interviews, live concerts and more.
This week, we're talking about the new project Trinity featuring singers Geoff Tate (ex Queensryche), Blaze Bayley (ex Iron Maiden), and Tim 'Ripper' Owens (ex Judas Priest). The band will be touring in November.
Geoff Tate formed the band Operation: Mindcrime in 2014 and it features Geoff Tate on lead vocals, along with Disturbed bassist John Moyer and former AC/DC drummer Simon Wright. After leaving Queensryche in 2012, Geoff Tate and his former bandmates were involved in a legal battle over the Queensryche name. Following the settlement, Tate was granted exclusive performance rights to the classic Queensryche album Operation: Mindcrime and his former bandmates retained all rights to the Queensryche name.
