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.
Frontiers Music Srl is pleased to announce the release of QUIET RIOT‘s eagerly anticipated new studio album entitled Road Rage on April 21, 2017.
The band also recently announced that their new frontman will be American Idol Season 10 Alum, James Durbin. In a recent Billboard interview, Kevin DuBrow‘s younger brother, Terry DuBrow, stated, “Finally Quiet Riot gets a lead vocalist who will do my brother’s voice justice.” Durbin replaces Seann Nicols who sang lead on the upcoming album.
“The songs on Road Rage are very diversified and ‘The Seeker’ harkens back to the music of the 70’s while still retaining the 80’s grooves that I love to play. It is akin to taking a journey back in time through the future. It’s a trip!” says drummer Frankie Banali.
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 of the 1983 Metal Health era of QUIET RIOT 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).
“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 Frankie Banali.
Quiet Riot dropped the first single, “The Seeker”, recently. Check it out below.
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.
