VIDEO: Queensryche – Get Started

Queensryche have released the latest video from their new “Dedicated To Chaos” album.

“Get Started” features a mix of footage from the band’s European shows with simple, life-on-the-road stuff.

Singer Geoff Tate recently spoke with I Heart Guitar about his legendary four-octave vocal range.

"I'm pretty fortunate, I have a very strong voice, and I started out very early in my teens taking voice training,"
said Tate. “I started using opera techniques, and it really helped me maintain my voice throughout a performance. When I first started singing I could only sing for half an hour before I'd start losing my voice, so with the training it gave me a lot of stamina. I can sing for three hours now and not have a problem. I think that's really the key: doing the breath exercises and staying healthy. That's a big part of it. Exercising every day, getting lots of sleep, which is paramount when you are on the road. My body needs eight hours every day, and if I can get the proper rest I can do shows continuously with no break. In fact, I don't like to take a break. I like to just power through a tour and not have a day off. But that's just me. I'm fortunate in the fact that I've got a lot of strength in my voice."

Queensryche are currently touring the UK opening for Judas Priest on that band’s Epitaph trek.
