When most musicians record solo albums, it’s because they need an outlet for material that doesn’t fit the scope of their band. That wasn’t the case with Geoff Tate. While there’s very little on his solo debut that couldn’t fit within the ever-evolving musical scope of Queensrÿche, the difference for the vocalist lies in the expression of those songs, and how they actually came to fruition.

“The problem when you’re in a creative environment is keeping things fresh and invigorating, and after working with the same people for twenty years, it gets very difficult—You walk into the room, and everybody knows what everybody is going to do,” explains the frontman. “There’s no spark of new blood, the chemistry is very tried and true, and you just keep coming up with the same ways of expressing yourself. What’s nice about doing a side project with new people, is that it’s a whole new breed, and a bunch of new ideas, musical backgrounds, emotional baggage, and whatever else it takes to create. It’s a whole new set of parameters, so it’s all new, everyone has ideas you haven’t heard before, and everyone is throwing them against the wall. It takes on a whole new life.”

For Tate, that “whole new life” is a vibrant tapestry of human emotion and expression, the culmination being his eponymous 11-track offering on Sanctuary Records. “The songs are all about the strongest passion of life, which is love. It’s all about the feelings that you have for somebody, how relationships work and don’t work, the misunderstandings, and all that it takes to keep a relationship working. That said, it’s also about stepping out on you’re own and trying new stuff, and not being afraid to take that big step. That makes it kind of autobiographical, because I’m taking that step, moving out from where I’ve been and stepping into other areas, and that’s important for people to do.”

“Ask me what I believe in, I’ll say compromise…” rings the opening line of the album’s first track, and in those vulnerable depths of “Flood” the mood is set. The music swirls in a textured wash of soothing guitar tones and gently cascading rhythms, and Tate’s vocals shower the proceedings like the most welcome of spring rains, his words glistening like a morning dew. Fans of Queensrÿche will revel in the familiar, soothing warmth of one of music’s most pure voices, while new fans will find themselves lost somewhere between the melancholy of “Forever” and the hopeful effervescence of “This Moment.” Co-songwriter Scott Moughton paves a tantalizing trail of Spanish-flavored guitars into “Helpless,” a piano lays the path through the peaceful calm of “In Other Words,” drums propel “Passenger,” and “Grain Of Faith” plays like the perfect culmination of Tate’s lyrical harmony and Carrell’s guitar-based foundations.

“One of the most brilliant points of humanity is when you take a complex situation, and describe it in a sense that’s simplistic enough for people to grasp it very easily. That’s amazing, really, and that’s what I try to do with songwriting—I try to take a big subject and condense it down into something very simple, maybe just a phrase, or a line, or a couple of lines that says everything. That’s a tough challenge, and that’s what keeps bringing me back to writing music. It’s never easy, which means there’s always a challenge to come up with something new and different.

“I’ve often had this problem of looking at the glass like it’s half-empty, and I’ve been trying for all these years to figure out how to change that perspective. All of a sudden, I’ve done it, and I don’t know how I did it—I think it’s just sort of letting it all go, and knowing that it will change and get better. I’m definitely in a better place now than I’ve ever been in before, I’ve got a real positive outlook now,” Tate offers, drawing a comparison between his solo release, and his prior body of work. “Queensrÿche seems to have angst about it, and I think that’s just because of the dynamics of the members involved. This was much more of a peaceful vibe.”

While a “peaceful” vibe may seem a bit askew from the voice behind Queensrÿche’s Operation: Mindcrime epic, there’s not a rock band around that has had the bravado to take their music in as divergent directions as Tate’s full-time outfit, and that fact isn’t lost on the singer. “I never tried to have a box thrown around myself and be a ‘heavy metal’ singer,” he explains. “If you listen to a lot of Queensrÿche records, especially since Empire, we’ve done many different types of music and vocals, all based around guitars. ‘Silent Lucidity’ and ‘Jet City Woman’ aren’t heavy metal anthems, they’re just good songs, and I think this new record of mine is a greater extension of where Queensrÿche went in those directions.”

HW is hard at work in the studio recording the follow up to 2014’s Billboard-charting “Conquer”. Stay tuned for updates and the brootz!
Based in Atlanta, Georgia and founded in 2001, Halcyon Way is the ultimate example of blue-collar work ethic, self-reliant bootstrapping, and hard work & perseverance in spite of nearly insurmountable odds. The band has released three albums worldwide through Nightmare Records/Sony RED, performed in a dozen countries and counting, and is preparing to unleash their 4th record in early 2014.

Halcyon Way’s sound cannot be neatly slotted into any sub-category of metal; but it can be described as heavy, catchy, technical, and above all, focused on mature songcraft. The band draws influences & inspiration from many metal bands from Megadeth to Dream Theater to Testament to Chimaira. The focus of the songwriting is on catchy hooks, vocal harmonies a la King’s X or Stryper, and on heavy, technical, but ultimately accessible instrumentation. Although these are many disparate influences, the net result is a brand of metal that is immediately familiar and comfortable to the listener, yet strangely hard to define.

In 2008, the band released their debut album on Nightmare Records/Koch Entertainment entitled A Manifesto For Domination. The CD was released to rave reviews, and the album was produced by Jon Bodan and James Murphy (formerly of the band Testament), and mixed by German producer Lasse Lammert (known for his work with Alestorm, Gloryhammer, and many other European metal bands).

In 2009, Halcyon Way began tracking the follow up record, Building The Towers. This time the band upped the ante in all respects, most notably with the acquisition of vocalist Steve Braun, formerly of Lion Music’s Italy-based Ashent. In addition, the band enlisted former Black Label Society drummer Mike Froedge to engineer the drum tracks in his studio, had Pamela Moore (“Sister Mary” from the legendary Operation:Mindcrime album by Queensryche) guest on 5 tracks, and brought the most sought after artist in heavy metal, Travis Smith, onto the team to create the artwork. Lasse Lammert was again tapped to not only mix and master the album, but to co-produce it alongside Jon. The album was released to amazing reviews in October of 2010.

In the midst of the mixdown for Building The Towers, the band received its first opportunity to tour overseas, thanks to long-time friend and supporter Rich Ward of Fozzy/Stuck Mojo. The band was able to travel to the United Kingdom for a tour with Fozzy, and played to sold out shows throughout the UK. This immediately led to the formation of the Halcyon Way UK Street Team, whose fanatical members have tattooed HW logos and lyrics upon themselves. The tour also led to a large amount of international press, and the HW flag was officially planted overseas.

Upon the successful completion of this tour, Halcyon Way was invited to do a full European tour with the resurgent, million-album-selling Stuck Mojo, and the band immediately accepted this opportunity. The tour was planned in the ensuing months, and at this time, disaster struck in true “Behind The Music” fashion. Two weeks before the band was scheduled to embark upon this 3-week tour, and only 5 days before Building The Towers was to be officially released, guitarist Jon Bodan was diagnosed with an aggressive form of Lymphoma. As a result, the tour was cancelled so he could begin aggressive treatment.

The band took most of 2011 off from the live circuit while Jon was in chemotherapy treatment, with the exception of several high-profile shows that had already been committed to by the band. However, this did not stop the band from releasing IndoctriNation, getting Building The Towers successfully licensed to Microsoft for the RockBand game franchise, and generally keeping the band in the public eye.

IndoctriNation had been written and recorded during the Building The Towers sessions, with the plan to release it as the third Halcyon Way album after the Building The Towers touring cycle had ended. Since the band was going to be “off the radar” from a live standpoint for a while, it was decided that the release of IndoctriNation would be moved up to late 2011. It was again mixed & mastered by Lasse Lammert, and Travis Smith was again tapped to handle the artwork.

In a stroke of irony, at about the same time as the new album released, Jon found out that he had been successful in his battle with cancer, and the band returned to live shows with a highly publicized and successful charity event benefitting cancer patients, and a headlining slot at the Pathfinder Metalfest III.

In spring of 2012, Halcyon Way embarked on their largest tour yet, a 17-date, 9-country stint in Europe & the UK with Dutch symphonic metal band Delain, playing to sold-out audiences across the Continent. After having been hand-picked by the management of Delain to support them on this important tour, the band did not disappoint, and picked up legions of new fans.

Upon returning to the US in May of 2012, the band began refining the material for their new album, and Jon traveled to Germany with drummer Ernie Topran to track the drums for the new CD. These sessions were completed in LSD Studios with long-time collaborator Lasse Lammert. This time produced entirely by Jon, and mixed and mastered again by Lasse, the new record is in mixdown at this time and should be released in first quarter 2014 and also released to the RockBand franchise.

The band also enlisted the acclaimed Los Angeles-based producer Seth Von Paulus to assist with vocal production. Seth is best known for his work with platinum-selling artists such as Christina Aguilera and Alicia Keys.

Never a band to sit on its hands, while completing the new album and having it mixed down, Halcyon Way was booked for a 2-week US/Canada tour in April of 2013 with the legendary U.D.O., the original voice of Accept, and this highly successful run introduced the band to thousands of new fans in theater-sized venues across the US & Canada. This tour was a trial by fire for the new addition to the HW camp, Max Eve on bass.

As soon as they returned from the road again, the band booked a video shoot in July of 2013 for the song “Web Of Lies”, which will appear on the new release. The video was World Premiered at the renowned ProgPower USA Festival in September 2013.

In addition, Halcyon Way went out on the largest tour of their career, a 24-show, 32-day US & Canada tour as direct support for the legendary Saxon, and their old friends in Fozzy. This tour helped Halcyon Way deliver their unique brand of metal to thousands of new fans across the entirety of the United States and Canada.

Hot on the heels of that tour, the band went out on the road again for 14 shows in support of the legendary progressive metal band Fates Warning, for their third tour of the US of the year.

These tours were designed to build awareness of Halcyon Way in preparation for the release of their fourth album, “Conquer”. This album shows immense growth and maturity in songwriting as they recount the struggles they have faced as a band and individually in the last few years. Make no mistake – this band has a chip on their shoulder and will not be denied.

Halcyon Way has built a reputation – brick by brick & stone by stone – as being a blue-collar, hard working band that will seize any opportunity given them, and wring it for all it’s worth. The band has accomplished all of these things with no label support whatsoever. It has been due to the hard work, sacrifice, and dedication of the band’s members to succeed at all costs. Their “do what we need to do” attitude is making their name in the music industry, and a favorite of fans worldwide. You can see this for yourself as they take the stage and demand that you take notice.

New Album “Illusion of Transparency” OUT NOW!!
Follow AVELION on Spotify:
The band was founded in Parma (Italy) in 2008 and, after some line-up adjustements, in 2011 released their first studio work: the EP “Cold Embrace”.
Following the widespread approval from the critics and the fans, the following year AVELION started an incessant Live activity, also having the great opportunity to play as opening act for Seventh Wonder (with Tommy Karevik, Kamelot), while at the same time a strong and ever-growing fanbase has developed worldwide.

In 2012 the band also released the promotional single “Falling Down” which sees the collaboration with guitarist Olaf Thorsen (Labyrinth, Vision Divine).

AVELION’s second EP, “Liquid Breathing”, was published in November 2013, followed by a mini-tour in Austria, Czech Republic and Slovakia. The EP delivers a more personal, modern and mature sound: here we can find, in fact, a Melodic Progressive Metal mixed with Djent influences, all combined with a strong Electronic personality.

In 2015, with Oreste Giacomini and William Verderi as masterminds and main composers, the band entered Domination Studio of Simone Mularoni (DGM) to record their first full length album: “Illusion Of Transparency”.

“Illusion Of Transparency” will be released on April 7th, 2017 via Revalve Records.

In March 2018 AVELION will be on Tour supporting the legendary ANGRA in 9 shows between Belgium, Netherlands, France, Spain and Portugal!
The dates will also feature Geoff Tate (Official) Operation: Mindcrime as special guest and the band Halcyon Way!
The band says: “We are honored to share the stage with such great bands and we are excited to bring “Illusion of Transparency” across Europe!”
