Frequency Unknown is a studio album released under the name Queensrÿche; it was released by Geoff Tate's temporary version of the band, before a settlement determined that only the other band members were entitled to use the name Queensrÿche. The album was released on Cleopatra Records' sub label, Deadline Music, on April 23, 2013 as music download, on CD and limited edition vinyl LP in the United States and on May 21, 2013 as audio cassette which excludes the re-recorded classics, and on June 3, 2013 on CD in the United Kingdom.
Tate subsequently filed a preliminary injunction lawsuit, disputing ownership of the band name, that resulted in a verdict that both Tate and the other band members were allowed to use the band name until the next court date, scheduled for November 2013. Tate subsequently started his own version of the band featuring former Queensrÿche guitarist and producer Kelly Gray, guitarist Glen Drover (Eidolon, King Diamond, Megadeth), bassist Rudy Sarzo (Blue Öyster Cult, Ozzy Osbourne, Quiet Riot, Whitesnake), drummer Bobby Blotzer (Ratt) and keyboardist Randy Gane. Drover was later replaced by Robert Sarzo, and Blotzer with Simon Wright (AC/DC, Dio). Tate's band went on an "Operation: Mindcrime Anniversary Tour", and lost the name Queensrÿche to the other remaining band members in April 2014.
Frequency Unknown was released on Cleopatra Records' sub label, Deadline Music, on April 23, 2013 as music download, on CD and limited vinyl LP in the United States, and on May 21, 2013 as audio cassette without the re-recorded classics, and on June 3, 2013 on CD in the United Kingdom. According to Tate, the promotional budget for the album was $1,000. The first batch of CDs that had the original mixes have been released in the United States, but Cleopatra has offered to send customers a replacement CD containing the remixes upon showing their receipt.
Thom Jurek of Allmusic was mixed in his verdict, praising songs such as "Cold" for having "an enormous Locicero riff that recalls the band's glory days", describing the songs "Life Without You", "Fallen", and "The Weight of the World" as "well-crafted prog metal tunes" and "Slave" and "Running Backwards" as "killer rockers (...) but their barely present vocals and muddy guitar sounds kill their impact." Jurek on Tate's vocals, says "he's still got a hell of a voice from what we can hear of it here", but he concludes that "[a]s a whole, Frequency Unknown suffers from subpar, muddy sound, which basically mars the entire record", and that "[t]he re-recordings of classic tracks were totally unnecessary."
"Am I Wrong" is a song by Norwegian musical duo Nico & Vinz (previously known as Envy). Produced by William Wiik Larsen ("Will IDAP"), the song was initially released as a digital download single in Norway on 12 April 2013, credited to the duo's previous name Envy, and became a hit in various Nordic countries, including Norway, Sweden, Denmark and Finland. 2b1af7f3a8
