Just STOP it now. This is getting embarrassing.

 

Press release from Frontiers Music:

 

BREAKING NEWS: QUIET RIOT ANNOUNCES NEW VOCALIST SEANN NICOLS FOR 2017

Los Angeles, CA, October 5th 2016, QUIET RIOT is very pleased to introduce Seann Nicols (formerly of Adler's Appetite) as their new vocalist starting in 2017. Quiet Riot are currently in the studio with Seann recording their forthcoming full length album of all new material, to be released on Frontiers Records in early 2017. They will also be releasing a music video, which will be the first QUIET RIOT music video since 1989. The band will kick off their tour on January 27 in Medina, Minnesota and will continue their touring schedule around the globe.

Vocalist Jizzy Pearl who is departing to concentrate full time on his solo career will finish off the 2016 QUIET RIOT tour dates through December.Frankie Banali says the departure is amicable. “QUIET RIOT thanks Jizzy for a great three years and we wish him the very best.

QUIET RIOT is a rock & roll phenomenon. Famously described as the first heavy metal band to top the pop chart at #1 on Billboard magazine, the Los Angeles quartet became an overnight sensation thanks to their monster 1983 smash album "Metal Health". After several member changes, and three years after the untimely passing of original lead singer Kevin DuBrow in 2007, Frankie Banali, an original member of the 1982 Metal Health classic line up, continued the musical legacy of QUIET RIOT along with bassist Chuck Wright who has been in and out of the band since 1982, and guitarist Alex Grossi who has been in the band since 2004.

Yeah, I dunno, I'd much rather hear this version of the band than a version with Jizzy Pearl involved. Can't say I'll be waiting anxiously for it, but may be worth a listen?

We should be mainly thankful somebody is. Couple of duffers in there but that label is at least keeping the torch shinning.

Twisted Sister without Dee? Aerosmith without Steven Tyler? Stones without Mick?

Some bands are defined by their singers.

QR is one for me.

Metal Health, Condition Critical and III are all amazing albums, but I never really managed to like much beyond them, Kevin singing or not.

But he still defines the sound for me, so keep on making music.... um.... Frankie, I guess, but do it under another name.

That wouldn't sell any records though would it?

Just a money grab, and who can really blame them/him? Being in a band isn't exactly a licence to make money these days. They likely need the name just to be able to book a gig lol

BREAKING NEWS: Frontiers Music Srl is pleased to announce the release of Quiet Riot’s highly anticipated new studio album, “Road Rage” on April 21, 2017.

Famously known as the first heavy metal band to top the pop charts, the Los Angeles quartet became a global sensation thanks to their monstrous smash hit 1983 album, “Metal Health.” The band now continues their historic journey in 2017 with founding member and drummer Frankie Banali who, on this new release is joined by veteran bassist Chuck Wright (who has been in and out of QUIET RIOT since 1982) and guitarist Alex Grossi (who has been handling his duties since 2004,) together with new vocalist Seann Nicols.

“I’m very excited about the release of ‘Road Rage’ on Frontiers Music Srl, which is the first official QUIET RIOT release in eleven years. It contains all newly written and recorded original songs. We stayed true to the great tradition and sound of QUIET RIOT while at the same time always moving musically forward,” says founding member Frankie Banali.

Frankie Banali's history with QUIET RIOT spans over 34 years and he has the distinction of being the only member of QUIET RIOT to have recorded on every single QUIET RIOT release from 1983’s METAL HEALTH through 2017’s “Road Rage”. After nearly ten years since the loss of his friend and co-founding member and bandmate Kevin DuBrow, and with careful consideration, soul searching and with the blessings and support of Kevin DuBrow's family, Frankie has moved forward with the band to bring the fans “Road Rage.”

Musically, “Road Rage” offers exactly what you would expect from QUIET RIOT. Arena ready hard rock with strong hooks and infectious riffs, along with maturity in the songwriting that only a band with such a history and pedigree can offer.

QUIET RIOT are back stronger than ever, in perfect METAL HEALTH with the new album, “Road Rage”! Catch them on the road this summer!

Banali is just trying so hard to keep this thing going. I feel for him, and appreciate his desire (monetary necessity), but Quiet Riot died with Dubrow as far as I'm concerned... and to be honest, they haven't really been relative to me since about 1985.

 

Gotta give them credit for that debut, however. Perfect place at the perfect time.

Anybody think the cover has a 'Mad Max' feel to it ?

 

well maybe gonna lost in the shuffle, but this album perhaps still worth a spin or two, might ended up around 75% or lower though

 

Absolutely reminds me of Mad Max. Cool cover.

 

I'm excited to hear the first samples. Quiet Riot was one of my first experiences in hard rock due to "Cum On Feel the Noize" being on V-Rock on Vice City, over 14 years ago.

 

I've never listened to their discog but have QR III on now and it sounds good

You're right, it was 1986 not 1985. I like III as well.

Paul Shortino is just a badass singer who could basically make anything sound cool

 

I once made a compilation CD with songs from his ''Back on Track'', the Badd Boyz album, both Rough Cutt releases and the 1988 Quiet Riot and wrote Paul Shortino - Voice of Steel on it LOL :D

 

Need to check if I still have that somewhere

QUIET RIOT

Frankie Banali - drums

Alex Grossi - guitars

Chuck Wright – bass guitar

Seann Nicols - vocals

 

You know you should call it a day when the first person to be mentioned in the line up is the DRUMMER cause he's the most recognizable one :D

 

 

I actually remember CHUCK WRIGHT as a member of Giuffria, NOT Quiet Riot. Surprisingly he played bass guitar on several METAL HEALTH tracks. I honestly did not know that until just now. Always thought it was Sarzo.

To me, a vocalist is just like another instrument....if he sounds like Dubrow, then I may really like it and not care if it's called Quiet Riot or whatever. I mean, Arnel Pineda does a fine job filling in on the Journey stuff and I can appreciate that and the fact they have someone that has that 'sound'......we shall see if this guy fits that bill. In the end...the music may still kick ass and he may not sound like Dubrow and I may like that as well. If we were all so picky about singers replacing singers..then Brian Johnson and Sammy Hagar would have caused a similar ruckus back in the day....but....we all know how that turned out. To me....'some' bands are like that for me...while others...maybe not so much...don't ask me why...lol

    • From bravewords.com: New American super group Highway Sentinels have revealed release date and cover for their debut album The Waiting Fire, which will be released on CD and digital on July 22, 2022. Highway Sentinels consists of David Reece (vocals, Bangalore Choir, ex Accept), Steven Rosen (guitars); Jimmy Waldo – (keys, Alcatrazz); Donnie Van Stavern (bass, Riot V); Mark Zonder (drums, Fates Warning, Warlord)! Guests include Joe Satriani, Tracii Guns, Bumblefoot, Paul Gilbert, Mike Flyntz, Joe Stump, Herman Frank and more. Highway Sentinels is a project created by Steven Rosen and Jimmy Waldo. Steven, himself a legendary author, journalist and guitar enthusiast going back to the 1970s, be it traveling on a plane with Led Zeppelin or as a close friend of Eddie Van Halen; he has always been at the forefront of rock journalism and its surrounding culture. Jimmy Waldo, founding member of Alcatrazz and New England, as well as having performed and recorded with the likes of Quiet Riot, Vinnie Vincent, Blackthorne, Pretty Maids, WASP, Skull, The Scream and many more; Jimmy has an astounding resume and a catalog of recorded music few can rival. During the lockdowns of 2021 the two men set about recording a batch of songs that they had been working on for a number of years, some dating back even decades were brought into the mix. The right vocalist had to be found as the guys wanted one consistent singer throughout to tie it all together. And while there are a number of highly skilled guest guitarists on this record, the guys felt it important to also present this as a band-union so it not come across as yet another “chuck all these guys together and see what happens” type of project. Each guest soloist was chosen for the song, rather than “name value” alone. David Reece was this vocalist, his work with Accept, Bangalore Choir, Bonfire and as a solo artist speaks for itself… he was given complete freedom to write lyrics and vocal melodies. A couple of songs come from the past, “Afterlife” and “We Won’t Be Forgotten” come from Jimmy’s past with Blackthorne, and “Victim Of The Night” a song David had recorded with Bangalore Choir which never found its way onto the classic debut of that band. Mark Zonder on drums brings an enormous pedigree to the record, known worldwide as the longtime drummer of Fates Warning and Warlord as well as the newly launched A-Z band with Fates Warning vocalist Ray Alder it all made sense to have Mark Zonder be the featured drummer on this record. On bass we have Donnie Van Stavern, from the much loved metal legends Riot, Donnie’s involvement means that no one has to worry about the bottom end falling out of a song, or having to have the guitarist re-cut the bass parts in a backroom somewhere… Donnie only plays one way… and that is go for the throat full on metal.        
    • From Frontiers: Palace, the brainchild of Lithuanian born Swedish vocalist and multi-instrumentalist Michael Palace, returns with a fourth album, "One 4 The Road". Once again, Michael Palace handles all the instrumentation, songwriting, and production for the effort, which showcases his love for the imagery and sounds of the glorious ‘80s. "One 4 The Road" is an unabashedly massive AOR/Melodic Rock album, as has come to be expected from this gifted Swede's output under the Palace moniker. Palace's sound can best be described as a carefully curated blend of all the greatest arena rock, AOR, and hard rock from the 80’s delivered in a tight-knit package. Unforgettable choruses, virtuosic guitars, clever lyricism, and a true passion for the retro aesthetic...Palace tickles the nostalgia nerve, while maintaining a firm foothold in the now. Michael Palace first began collaborating with Frontiers as a songwriter and guitarist for First Signal, which of course features legendary Harem Scarem vocalist Harry Hess, Cry of Dawn featuring Goran Edman, Kryptonite featuring The Poodles vocalist Jakob Samuel, and Pride Of Lions vocalist Toby Hitchcock. Those successful (and musically delightful) collaborations led to a deal with Frontiers where Michael could deliver songs in his own vision without other musicians in mind under the name Palace. "One 4 The Road" is the fourth release by Michael's solo vehicle, which he has been releasing albums by bi-annually since 2016.  Michael Palace is best known for his namesake project, where he is responsible for every part of the production. Michael does it, not out of necessity, but rather a deep love for the entire craft, and frequently collaborates with a vast number of artists and musicians around the world. Michael Palace has honed his skills as a musician, songwriter, and studio whiz with several different acts over the years, including, but not limited to KENT HILLI (Perfect Plan), FANS OF THE DARK, THE MURDER OF MY SWEET, HOUSTON, FIND ME (featuring Robbie LaBlanc), FIRST SIGNAL (featuring Harry Hess), and more.  Fans of Palace’s previous three releases, “Master Of The Universe”, “Binary Music”, and "Rock and Roll Radio", will have no shortage of joy upon hearing the band’s latest entry into Michael Palace’s impressive and growing catalog.  Tracklisting: 1. Fifteen Minutes 2. Westbound 3. Too Old For This 4. Money Can Kill 5. The Driver 6. Time Crisis 7. Facing The Music 8. World Gone Mad 9. Living The Life 10. Cancel The Flight 11. Loneliest Night Line-Up: Michael Palace – All Instruments, Songwriting, & Production
    • Opinions vary but some of these bands have several top albums.... Bon Jovi - Slippery for me Dio - Dream Evil for me Dan Reed Network - Slam for me Reckless Love - Animal attraction for me Dare - Blood From Stone for me...but a coin toss House of Lords - Demons Down for me Lillian Axe - Love & War for me
    • Wow, nothing you can find on their debut, 'Once Bitten' or 'Twice Shy?' Some absolutely killer melodic hard rock on all three albums. As good as or better than many of their peers for those three albums, imo. Especially the debut.  1. I actually agree. Don't know three songs, but I assume there's probably about three decent ones on there. Album just never clicked with me at all.  2. Agreed 3. Disagree 4. Don't know, not interested 5. That is absolutely ridiculous, lol. Horrendous album after three class albums. Can't even put an imo in there because I feel that strongly about it. 6. Neither of them > Either of them.  
    • I think I'd agree with those, but as noted Giant is a coin flip. I really love both albums, but overall for me, it has to be 'Blood' by a small margin. Agree Agree again Good call, defo agree with this. Thought it was their best by far, personally. What about- Takara (only just) Ten Unruly Child Von Groove
