Geoff Tate's Operation: Mindcrime
Multi-platinum selling, GRAMMY®-nominated singer/songwriter Geoff Tate will embark on a worldwide tour highlighting songs from all 17 albums he has done throughout his 35 year career.
Geoff is regarded as one of the most skilled vocalists in the rock genre with hundreds of modern, popular artists citing him as a major influence.
Geoff Tate will present his upcoming all acoustic show with himself, backed by a 7-piece acoustic band of musicians from the United States and Ireland and will feature three guitar players, mandolin, cello, saxophone, violin and multiple percussion instruments to produce a high energy acoustic version of some of the heavy metal genres most recognized songs.
Formed in Commerce Texas, in the winter of 2014, former members of DFW heavyweights Fair To Midland, Edgewater, Advent, Loaded Moses, Negative 263 and Flush, joined forces to create Erstwhile. With likenesses to bands such as A Perfect Circle, Failure, Type-O-Negative & Nine Inch Nails, Erstwhile’s diverse musical influences & stylings have established themselves as a musical force, hailing from the DFW music scene. Fans have described their music as “slow & low, driving-rock,” with others describing them as “cinematic rock.” Bassist Cameron Woolf states, “we wanted to do something driving, something that rocks, but something that takes you on an emotional musical journey, all at the same time.”
Lee Russell, radio personality & host from Reckless Rock Radio on 89.3 KNON in Dallas said, “if Pink Floyd & Type-O-Negative had a lovechild, they would have had Erstwhile as a baby.”
www.ghostofblindlemon.com posted after a show stating, “Erstwhile was one of the last bands I saw take the stage. The band’s performance was nothing short of amazing. The most memorable music moment of their set came with Six Lies. The keyboard intro feels like it would’ve been a perfect intro to a Sisters of Mercy song, only before the track morphs into a heavy rock groove that Deftones would likely be envious of.”
Erstwhile’s self-titled debut album is available now on all major streaming platforms & for sale on their website, iTunes, Amazon Music & Bandcamp.
