Geoff Tate’s band Operation: Mindcrime have signed a record deal to release a planned trilogy of albums.
Frontiers Music Srl will release the three albums from the former Queensryche man who gave up that band name earlier this year in an out-of-court settlement with his former colleagues.
Tate says signing the deal with Frontiers Music Srl will give him the freedom he needs to turn his new ideas for his latest project into a reality:
“All of us in Operation: Mindcrime are looking forward to the new frontier with our new label Frontiers Music Srl. 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.”
Frontiers Music president Serafino Perugino said of the deal: “As a longtime fan of Geoff Tate and the Operation: Mindcrime album, I am truly honoured that he decided to sign with my label to give a home to his forthcoming trilogy. We look forward to releasing Operation: Mindcrime’s new music to the world.”
The first album of the new trilogy is tentatively scheduled for release in late spring/early summer of 2015.
