OPERATION MINDCRIME Release 'The New Reality' December 1

Friday, December 1, 2017
Categories: 
 
Frontiers Music Srl To Release Operation: Mindcrime's “The New Reality” on December 1.
 
“The New Reality” is the third and final chapter in the musical trilogy from iconic metal vocalist Geoff Tate (Official) that follows a little over one year after the release of the second chapter, "Resurrection", in 2016 and about two years after the first chapter, "The Key". Operation: Mindcrime is a creative platform that continues in the spirit of the historic album of the same name, spawning concepts as grand as the music, and intertwining the intensity of the former Queensrÿche vocalist's iconic past with the provocative, progressive mindset that has made him one of music's most resolute forces and frontmen. Joined by a cast of musicians, Kelly Gray, John Moyer, Simon Wright, Scott Mercado, Scott Moughton, Brian Tichy, & Mike Ferguson, whose talent and resumes speak volumes for the quality of musicianship that will be on display here, “The New Reality” is a another fine progressive rock/metal entry from Tate.
 
Geoff Tate sold more than 25 million records at the helm of Queensryche, the band he fronted for 30 years from their inception through 2012, earning three Grammy nominations, five MTV Music Video Award nominations, and one MTV Music Video Award along the way. The landmark concept album "Operation: Mindcrime" thrust Tate's unique social consciousness, style and expertly crafted lyrics into the national spotlight in 1988, and was followed by "Empire" in 1990, the album that delivered Queensryche to arena-headlining status and sold more than 3 million albums on the back of hit singles and radio staples, "Silent Lucidity" and "Jet City Woman." By the time the band released "Promised Land" in 1994, Geoff Tate was universally acknowledged as one of the greatest frontmen in rock and metal, and a driving force behind one of the most innovative bands in mainstream music. From "Operation: Mindcrime to "Promised Land" through 2009's overlooked gem "American Soldier" - Tate's ambitious concept album that explores the consequences of war as told through the voices of veterans - Tate's 13 album tenure with Queensryche was marked by exploration, intrigue, bold risks and gratifying results. “The New Reality” carries on that musically adventurous tradition.

OPERATION: MINDCRIME 'Resurrection' Due September 23

Categories: 

Frontiers Music srl is excited to announce the release of 'Resurrection', the new album from Operation: Mindcrime, the brainchild of legendary vocalist Geoff Tate. The album is set for a worldwide release on September 23, 2016.

'Resurrection' is the second part of the musical trilogy from iconic metal vocalist Geoff Tate. Following one year after the release of the debut album in September 2015, Operation: Mindcrime continues in the spirit of the historic album of the same name, spawning concepts as grand as the music, and intertwining the intensity of the former Queensr'che vocalist's iconic past with the provocative, progressive mindset that has made him one of music's most resolute forces and frontmen.

'The album 'Resurrection' is the second part of our three album presentation or trilogy. It continues the story that began on the first album 'The Key' with the near death experience of the lead character known as 'H' and his subsequent recovery of the missing encryption key. With the Key finally in his possession, 'H' has everything he needs to finally launch his long awaited project called 'The New Reality'. Or does he',' explains Geoff Tate.

Tate continued, 'I'm excited for people to hear and experience 'Resurrection' because I think it answers some of the questions that were posed in the first album, 'The Key'. Musically, it offers some of the most diverse and challenging material that I've ever written.'

Geoff Tate has sold more than 25 million records at the helm of Queensryche, the band he fronted for 30 years from their inception through 2012, earning three GRAMMY nominations, five MTV Music Video Award nominations, and one MTV Video Music Awards along the way. The landmark concept album Operation: Mindcrime thrust Tate's unique social consciousness, style and expertly crafted lyrics into the national spotlight in 1988, and was followed by Empire in 1990, the album that delivered Queensryche to arena-headlining status and sold more than three million albums on the back of hit singles and radio staples "Silent Lucidity" and "Jet City Woman."

GEOFF TATE'S OPERATION: MINDCRIME TO EMBARK
ON EXTENSIVE U.S. TOUR BEGINNING IN FEBRUARY
 
UPCOMING CONCERT PERFORMANCES TO FEATURE MAJOR HITS AND
FAN FAVORITES SPANNING GEOFF TATE'S ILLUSTRIOUS CAREER AS THE
ORIGINAL FRONT MAN OF QUEENSRYCHE, ALONG WITH NEW SONGS
FROM OPERATION: MINDCRIME'S RECENTLY RELEASED DEBUT ALBUM, "THE KEY"
 
On February 3, Geoff Tate and his new band, Operation: Mindcrime, will be hitting the road for over thirty dates on what will mark the band's first major U.S tour of the year (see full tour itinerary below). This comes hot on the heels of their extensive European tour in November and December that took them to such countries as Austria, Bulgaria, Croatia, Czech Republic, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Hungary, Italy, Netherlands, Poland, Slovakia, Switzerland and the United Kingdom. The trek was the band's first in support of its debut album, The Key, which came out on Frontiers Music Srl in September 2015.
 
For the forthcoming U.S. tour, Geoff Tate will be joined by several of the stellar musicians and bandmates who performed on Operation: Mindcrime's The Key, including guitarists Kelly Gray (Queensryche) and Scott Moughton (Geoff Tate), drummers Simon Wright (AC/DC) and Scott Mercado (Candlebox) and keyboardist Randy Gane (Myth).
 
Perhaps one of Geoff Tate's most ambitious recordings to date, The Key examines what one might do if they discovered "the key" to changing the way we view the world, the way we look at time, the way we travel and could essentially change the human condition... for better or for worse.
 
The Key is the debut album under Tate's new Operation: Mindcrime banner, a creative platform that continues in the spirit of the historic album of the same name, spawning concepts as grand as the music, and intertwining the intensity of the former Queensryche vocalist's iconic past with the provocative, progressive mindset that has made him one of music's most resolute forces and frontmen.
What can fans expect on this tour? The unexpected.
 
According to Tate, "I plan to play songs from Empire, Operation: Mindcrime 1 and 2, Rage for Order and my new album, The Key, along with favorites from all the other albums I recorded under the name Queensryche," adding, "My band's name may have changed but the songs remain the same."
 
Tate has sold more than 25 million records at the helm of Queensryche, the band he fronted for 30 years from their inception through 2012, earning three Grammy nominations, five MTV Music Video Award nominations, and one MTV Music Video Award along the way.
The landmark concept album Operation: Mindcrime thrust Tate's unique social consciousness, style and expertly crafted lyrics into the national spotlight in 1988, and was followed by Empire in 1990, the album that delivered Queensryche to arena-headlining status and sold more than three million albums on the back of hit singles and radio staples "Silent Lucidity" and "Jet City Woman."
 
By the time the band released Promised Land in 1994, Geoff Tate was universally acknowledged as one of the greatest frontmen in rock and metal, and a driving force behind one of the most innovative bands in mainstream music.
From Mindcrime and Promised Land through 2009's overlooked gem American Soldier - Tate's ambitious concept album that explores the consequences of war as told through the voices of veterans - Tate's 13-album tenure with Queensryche was marked by exploration, intrigue, bold risks and gratifying results.
 
The Key continues in that fine tradition.
Come February, Operation: Mindcrime will be bringing fans just what the doctor ordered with the usual surgical precision.
Call it "a musical journey to the center of your brain."
Let the "Operation" begin.
 
Operation: Mindcrime will wrap up the initial leg of their tour in Geoff Tate's hometown of Seattle, Washington with a performance at The Neptune on March 18.

You’ll have to indulge Geoff Tate just a little longer before he realizes fans don’t want what he’s selling. After forcing myself to listen to this a dozen times, you can see where the former prog-metal hero wants to go musically. Sadly it’s not where 90% of his fans want.
 
I get where he’s coming from. This 50 minute expressive, experimental, alt-metal album does attempt to make a statement, but in the end it’s just really hard to listen to.
There is no cohesiveness that binds the album together and while he comes close to former glories on the impressive Re-Inventing The Future and maybe Life Or Death; elsewhere he delivers utter dreck like The Stranger and Hearing Voices that I struggle to think who it might appeal to.
Tracks like Burn and Ready To Fly just drag and the mood building intro track Choices is largely pointless.
Its 2015 – the market place is selective. Fans want what they want. There isn’t much room for epic concept pieces unless they are very very good.
 
The production here is ok, but I find that it’s hard to get a grip on everything happening within the mix, it’s a bit of a blur really. There's a lot going on and it's complex enough, but it just doesn't flow for me.

Listening to music should be easy, whatever the mood may call for – escapism, aggression, adrenaline, relaxing or challenging. But it should be easy. This album is a real chore to get through. There’s just too many left turns on this album. Basically Tate keeps turning left and ends up going around in circles.

OPERATION: MINDCRIME - Tate Talks To Billboard

Release Year: 
2015
Categories: 

Former Queensryche Singer Geoff Tate Leads Operation: Mindcrime in New Video 'Burn': Exclusive PremiereThe Key feels a little bit different for Geoff Tate than anything he's done in his career up to this point.

The album is the singer's first under the banner Operation: Mindcrime, which was part of the 2014 settlement of his bitter lawsuit with his former band,Queensryche. And while Tate is certainly pleased to have the 12-track set ready to release on Sept. 18, the fact that he has two more coming as part of a trilogy is a bit surreal.
"I've got two other records I have to complete by October, so it's weird," Tate tells Billboard. "Typically when you finish a record you usually have this sense of accomplishment and elation and a period of time when you relax and breathe deep and get ready for the tour. That isn't the case with this one. It's, 'OK, it's done. Send the record to the record company, get their OK, then get back to work.' It's kind of a strange thing."
Watch the video for "Burn," which Billboard is exclusively premiering below.

Tate says the second album in the trilogy is currently being mixed, while the third is "mostly written" and on track to be finished by the October deadline. Their releases will be staggered with nine months to a year between them, but Tate wanted to record all three in the same time frame to make sure there was a flow and continuity to the story. 
"It's actually taken me a lot longer to do than I thought it would, but you can't rush things," Tate says. "I've been working diligently since last November on this project. I've only taken 14 days off in the whole time from last November to now. It's just a ton of work. But I'm real happy with the outcome so far. it's been a real satisfying project -- very enjoyable, actually."
It would have been easier, of course, to just make a traditional album. But Tate -- who in the settlement also won sole rights to perform Queensryche's twoOperation: Mindcrime albums in their entireties -- has "been wanting to do a big conceptual project for awhile" and came up with the story, about an "international incident" that involves virtual currencies and global political intrigue, during a hiking vacation in Spain with his wife. Tate outlined and broke it up into three parts, which he's recording with Jason Slater at London Bridge Studio in Seattle and with a corps of musicians that included guitarist Scott Moughton from his own band as well as Disturbed's John Moyer, Megadeth/Metal Allegiance bassist David Ellefson, former Queensryche guitarist Kelly Gray and others -- though Tate says that Operation: Mindcrime will be remain a project rather than a band with a standing lineup.
But Tate will be taking Operation: Mindcrime on the road, with plans to begin during late November in Europe and bring the troupe back to North America during early 2016. "We're not going to play the second and third records live until they're released," Tate explains, "so we'll be touring The Key as the central point of the show and then sandwiching it between music from my past. I've got a lot of music that I've written over the years -- 147 songs -- and I'd like to explore that and play it live for people. We won't be wanting for things to put in the show, I can promise you that."

OPERATION MINDCRIME Reveal 'The Key' In September 18

GEOFF TATE'S OPERATION: MINDCRIME TO UNLOCK PART ONE
OF EPIC MUSICAL TRILOGY WITH RELEASE OF "THE KEY"
ON TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 18 ON FRONTIERS MUSIC SRL
 
"THE KEY" -- A TWELVE-SONG DISC FEATURING SUCH SONGS AS
"BURN," "RE-INVENTING THE FUTURE," "LIFE OR DEATH?" AND "THE FALL" --
TO EXPAND MINDS THROUGH MUSIC BY PONDERING THE DISCOVERY
OF "THE KEY" THAT COULD CHANGE THE WAY WE PERCEIVE THE WORLD

On Tuesday, September 18, Geoff Tate's new band, Operation: Mindcrime, will be releasing its long-awaited debut album, The Key, on Frontiers Music Srl.
 
Perhaps one of Tate's most ambitious recordings to date, The Key examines what one might do if they discovered "the key" to changing the way we view the world, the way we look at time, the way we travel, and could essentially change the human condition... for better or for worse.
 
Fresh from the creative mind of Geoff Tate, The Key features a dozen songs (see entire track listing below) and marks part one of an epic musical trilogy that initiates that very question within a web of international politics, the world economy and social ethos.
 
A trailer featuring snippets of four songs from the album ("Burn," "Re-Inventing the Future," "Life Or Death?" and "The Fall") is now available at https://youtu.be/zOEL6Ic1XsI with pre-orders of the album now being taken at http://radi.al/TheKeyAmazonCD  and http://radi.al/TheKeyAmazonMP3 .
     
The Key is the debut album under Tate's new Operation: Mindcrime banner, a creative platform that continues in the spirit of the historic album of the same name, spawning concepts as grand as the music, and intertwining the intensity of the former Queensryche vocalist's iconic past with the provocative, progressive mindset that has made him one of music's most resolute forces and frontmen.    
 
Geoff Tate has sold more than 25 million records at the helm of Queensryche, the band he fronted for 30 years from their inception through 2012, earning three Grammy nominations, five MTV Music Video Award nomimations, and one MTV Music Video Award along the way.
 
The landmark concept album Operation: Mindcrime thrust Tate's unique social consciousness, style and expertly crafted lyrics into the national spotlight in 1988, and was followed by Empire in 1990, the album that delivered Queensryche to arena-headlining status and sold more than three million albums on the back of hit singles and radio staples "Silent Lucidity" and "Jet City Woman."
 
By the time the band released Promised Land in 1994, Geoff Tate was universally acknowledged as one of the greatest frontmen in rock and metal, and a driving force behind one of the most innovative bands in mainstream music.
 
From Mindcrime and Promised Land through 2009's overlooked gem American Soldier - Tate's ambitious concept album that explores the consequences of war as told through the voices of veterans - Tate's 13-album tenure with Queensryche was marked by exploration, intrigue, bold risks and gratifying results.
 
The Key continues in that fine tradition.              
 
"Musically, this album is quite adventurous," says Tate of his first release in a new worldwide deal with Frontiers Music SRL. "Of course there are key elements in the music, melody and phrasings that are really identifiable, but throughout my career I've opened my eyes and ears to new standards and arrangements, and that's what keeps things fresh and exciting as an artist - we've thrown out the rules for this record, and it's been really liberating. I'm a fan of old prog, and that music didn't stick to rules. It's inspiring and enjoyable to be able to explore, and it's great being in a position to write without constraints."  
 
The results are a series of albums that don't languish in nostalgia, instead offering listeners an opportunity to delve into a world of ideas and inspiration that Tate has been nurturing for the better portion of the last decade. Instead of asking, "Who killed Mary?", Operation: Mindcrime now asks, "What are the implications of changing the world?"  
 
"Like every album I've ever done, people will hear and experience it differently, and that is something that I look forward to," continues Tate. "Music is an intimate experience - your inspirations are unique to you, and will be heard differently through every set of ears and experiences - but isn't that really what makes art exciting? It inspires us all in different ways and for different reasons, and this album is no different. There are quite a few sections of this album that help propel the story with segues and dialogue, but the lyrics don't lay out a breadcrumb trail and tell the story in a linear fashion, there's a puzzle. We have several characters, and three other people singing lead vocals on the first album. That made it even more fun for me and helps give the album its own special character.  
 
"Musically, there's quite a smorgasbord, we've played with sound and established a sound palate - heavy guitar, obviously, cool drumming... all the music is very sophisticated, and there are interesting time changes, the band is playing with different countings and we switch throughout each piece. We can perform the verse in one feel, the bridge in another, and transition to a new chorus, very challenging stuff and lots of different sounds that people probably haven't heard on one of my albums before - new and different guitar sounds and vocal treatments, very dynamic stuff."  
 
Joining Tate on The Key are a hard-hitting cast of familiar faces and new collaborators: bass players Dave Ellefson (Metal Allegiance) and John Moyer (Disturbed, Adrenaline Mob), drummers Simon Wright (AC/DC), Scott Mercado (Candlebox) and Brian Tichy (Billy Idol, Ozzy Osbourne), guitarists Kelly Gray (Queensryche) and Scott Moughton (Geoff Tate), keyboardist Randy Gane (Myth) and vocalist Mark Daly (The Voodoos).
 
Tate makes one point exceptionally clear - Operation: Mindcrime isn't a band, it is a musical project of like-minded people uniting to achieve a common goal. While the songwriting rests predominantly on the shoulders of Tate, Gray and Gane, it's up to every contributor to add their influence and help color the landscape.         
 
"The songs on these records tell a story, and each song is a scene or chapter - every scene is different. The words tell the story, the musical bed, the chord progressions and melodies, they set the pace. That's how I envisioned this album in total, very theatrical and definitely cinematic.         
 
"How do we describe passion?" Tate asks in conclusion, cautiously answering his own question: "Music is a personal journey, and all you can do is write what moves you. That's what passion is - it's so difficult, yet it's such an important human emotion. There are moments on this record that really impact me, the questions raised and the music those questions are set to... I don't know if it will have that same effect on everyone else, but that's where my passion and their passion meet. I do this because I love doing it. I love touring and I love playing live, performing with like-minded people in front of like-minded audiences, and being there in the moment together when all of our passions collide."               
 
And if, in the process, Geoff Tate can tell a story that turns people on end and keeps them talking long after the music has stopped playing? That's not just icing on the cake, that's what it's all about...
 
That is Operation: Mindcrime. And come this September, fans will have The Key.   
 
With music videos currently in production and a first single that's expected to be released by the end of this month, further mind expansion is yet to come.

OPERATION: MINDCRIME Signs Worldwide Record Deal With Frontiers Music

OPERATION: MINDCRIME FEATURING FORMER QUEENSRYCHE FRONTMAN GEOFF TATE
SIGNS WORLDWIDE RECORD DEAL WITH FRONTIERS MUSIC SRL

OPERATION: MINDCRIME -- featuring singer Geoff Tate, bassist Rudy Sarzo (Ozzy Osbourne, Whitesnake), drummer Simon Wright (AC/DC, Dio), guitarist Kelly Gray (Queensryche) and keyboardist Randy Gane (Myth) -- has signed a worldwide record deal with Frontiers Music Srl for their forthcoming trilogy project.
 
"All of us in Operation: Mindcrime are looking forward to the new frontier with our new label, Frontiers Music Srl," states Tate regarding the signing. "They're giving us the creative freedom necessary to do the trilogy project I've envisioned for the past few years. It's going to be great fun for all of us involved and we hope our fans will enjoy listening to it as much as we plan to enjoy creating and recording it."
 
Ecstatic to have the band on his label, Frontiers Music Srl President Serafino Perugino comments, "As a long time fan of Geoff Tate and Operation: Mindcrime (the album), I am truly honored that he decided to sign with my label to give a home to his forthcoming trilogy. We look forward to release Operation: Mindcrime's new music to the world!"
 
Tate, who has always enjoyed telling stories though his music, considers the creation of the forthcoming trilogy one of his biggest and most ambitious works to date.
 
"I tried to reduce the story and eventually got it down to 37 ideas that needed representing to complete the story," comments Geoff. "I knew that one record wouldn't cover it and that it would have to be a trilogy."
 
OPERATION: MINDCRIME, named after Queensryche's epic concept album from 1988, recently entered the studio to begin recording the album that is expected to be released in the late Spring / early Summer of 2015.
 
Stay tuned for further details of the project in the months ahead.
