Beginning Sunday, January 22, 2017, multi-platinum selling, GRAMMY-nominated singer/songwriter Geoff Tate embarked on an extensive U.S. tour highlighting songs from all 17 albums he has done throughout his illustrious 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. He is the original singer for the band QUEENSRYCHE, which he fronted for over 30 years.

Geoff presents his upcoming all-acoustic show with himself, backed by a 7-piece acoustic band of musicians from the United States and Ireland -- featuring three guitar players, mandolin, cello, saxophone, violin and multiple percussion instruments -- to produce a high energy acoustic version of some of the heavy metal genre's most recognized songs including "Silent Lucidity", "Jet City Woman", "Empire", "I Don't Believe In Love" and "Eyes Of A Stranger".

On February 14th, MVD Entertainment released the feature film debut of Geoff Tate. Entitled The Burningmoore Deaths, the horror film - written and directed by Jonathan Williams - is inspired by true events surrounding unsolved murders captured on security cameras during a production shoot of a Home Improvement TV show pilot.

Tate takes the role of James Parrish, a man who allegedly killed his own wife and three children before disappearing without a trace. With the home now vacated and boarded up, a home improvement company gets permission to film the renovation process for a test pilot for a TV network, not knowing that Parrish had returned to take up residence once again in the derelict building. Bloody chaos ensues - and it's all captured on camera!

The Burningmoore Deaths features an original score by Andrew Kadin with additional music by DAWN OF SOLACE and Geoff Tate.

"I think I've always done it... in our own shows and with the way I present music," said Tate. "It all has a bit of a stage acting bend to it. So this wasn't really a stretch for me... it was just playing to a different audience, to a camera rather than a room full of people, but it's the same thing. You play-act and you make stuff up and you present that like you like you would in a stage show."

The Burningmoore Deaths will be available on all digital stores for download and also available on DVD in retail stores, the MVD Shop and on Amazon.
