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!

Agree 100% with Peter

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.

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

Cover reminds me more of Lotso on the front of the garbage truck at the end of Toy Story 3 than Mad Max ?

Actually, the self-titled disc with Paul Shortino singing is pretty bad-ass.

Agree with that :)

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

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

Scorp with the inside scoop! Not surprised and why would Frontiers sign them?
