This is a return to the more melodic metal style for Tate.
Frontiers Music Srl announced an exciting new project entitled Sweet Oblivion. The self-titled debut album will be released on June 14th, 2019. It is produced by Simone Mularoni, and it features legendary former Queensryche and current Operation: Mindcrime singer Geoff Tate on lead vocals.
Geoff Tate says,
I was approached by Frontiers to do this record and am pleased I took this chance. It’s an album filled with fun, and I believe a lot of the fans who dig the old Queensryche sound will enjoy this one!
Simone Mularoni adds,
I grew up listening to the ’70s and ’80s rock and metal bands and, of course, Queensryche’s classic albums are among my favorites ever. Having the opportunity and luck of working together with a musical giant like Geoff Tate has been a real blessing on both the human and the artistic side. I asked a few amazing musicians and friends to help me out and together we delivered a bunch of classic heavy rock songs in which I tried to fuse a more contemporary approach with a classic Queensryche vibe… the performances are amazing!
The opening track and first video “True Colors” sets the pace for the entire release and shows what the listeners can expect from this record.
