The members of Queensryche have defeated a motion for a preliminary injunction filed by ousted vocalist Geoff Tate that will allow them to tour and operate under the band's name for the time being.
The group had signed with AGPS Management, having recently ousted Tate's wife Susan from her role overseeing the band. The sworn declaration of Susan Tate regarding her husband's case toward the other group members has become public.
Tate claims that the band members painted an inaccurate picture of how she became their manager. Having initially started as the group's fan club operator, she later took on merchandising and was eventually asked to join the management team after the band became dissatisfied with their former representative.
The remaining band members recently announced plans to continue with new singer Todd LaTorre taking over for Tate, and they performed under the moniker Rising West at a recent show prior to making the move to get rid of the singer.
