  QUIET RIOT RELEASE NEW SONG - LISTEN HERE
11th July 2017



quiet riot

Quiet Riot have released a brand new song called 'Wasted', which is taken from their new album, 'Road Rage', which will be released on August 4th via Frontiers Music Srl. You can hear 'Wasted' below.

'Road Rage' was originally scheduled for release in spring this year, but after new vocalist James Durbin joined and the band experienced newfound energy, they decided to scrap the original sessions and record a new version of 'Road Rage' with the new and improved line-up.

Durbin became known as "the Metal guy" on 2011s 'American Idol' after performing 'Living After Midnight' and 'Breaking The Law' with Judas Priest. He joined Quiet Riot in March after the dismissal of Seann Nicols, who recorded the vocals for an early version of 'Road Rage'.

Durbin is joined in Quiet Riot by drummer Frankie Banali, bassist Chuck Wright, who has been in and out of the band since 1982 and guitarist Alex Grossi, a member since 2004.

Frankie Banali said:

"The recordings for the new 'Road Rage' record have been an incredible musical journey in the storied history of Quiet Riot.

"I asked vocalist James Durbin to fill the very large shoes of the late great Kevin DuBrow because I knew he could. While no one can ever replace Kevin DuBrow, he has the same spirit and drive that Kevin had.

"James is an amazing live performer with an insane vocal range, but he is also a very gifted songwriter and brought to the 'Road Rage' record totally unique original lyrics and melodies. Not only do they fit perfectly to the music we wrote, but they took the songs to a completely new level.

"All the work that we have put into this record has been well worth the wait. I am extremely proud of guitarist Alex Grossi, bassist Chuck Wright and especially James Durbin for the work we have created on this record.

"Quiet Riot continues to tour relentlessly and will be on the road throughout the year. Expect to hear your Quiet Riot favourites as well as new songs from 'Road Rage' at our shows."

James Durbin added about joining the band and his work on the new album:

"The crown jewel, on top of joining one of your favourite bands, has to be writing, recording and releasing a new album. No matter what, you are now a part of that band's history and I'm honoured to have had the opportunity to do that with Quiet Riot.

"I spent just over three weeks marathon songwriting brand new lyrics and melodies for every song and recording vocals.

"I'm extremely proud of the 'Road Rage' record, not only that I had the band's support and trust to deliver, or how great of a personal accomplishment and blessing it's been, but that we can keep the Quiet Riot freak flag flying and have the chance to inspire a new generation of fans."

Banali revived Quiet Riot in 2010, three years after Kevin DuBrow's death. They went through two vocalists — Mark Huff and Scott Vokoun — before settling on Jizzy Pearl in 2013. Pearl announced his exit from the band in October.

Here's 'Wasted', along with 'Freak Flag' which was released last month.

WACKEN WINTER NIGHTS IS HEAVY METAL WONDERLAND

wacken

Wacken Winter Nights 2018 takes place between February 23rd and 25th 2018 and the great news is that you can now experience a full-on, top class German Metal Festival easily and affordably.

It only takes an hour to fly to Hamburg from London and we've had longer journeys than that within the capital and they were certainly more expensive than the £33 air ticket that just appeared in our 'flights to Wacken Winter Nights' search.

wacken

Wacken Winter Nights is organised by the same team who are responsible for the world's greatest Metal festival, Wacken-Open-Air and the 2018 bill includes Skyclad, Orphaned Land, Elvenking, Finntroll, Grave Digger, Aeverium, Comes Vagantes, Coppelius, Corvus Corax, Die Pressgëng, Elvellon, Heimataerde, Hell-O-Matic, Ignis Fatuu, Ingrimm, Irdorath, Johnny Deathshadow, Krayenzeit, Letzte Instanz, Mr Hurley und die Pulveraffen, Pampatut, Pat Razket, Schandmaul, Sündenrausch, The Aberlour's, The Moon And The Nightspirit, Torfrock, Visions Of Atlantis, Vroudenspil, Wind Rose and more.



Besides this rich billing of superb Metal bands, there is so much more to see in the festival area including the medieval market and also the walking acts and jugglers you will meet at the theme worlds, including Robert Blake, three-time World Cup winner of street magic.

Wacken Winter Nights is something not to be missed and you can check out the amazing ticket and accommodation prices right here.

We just priced up the whole four day trip with hotels, flights, shuttles and festival tickets for less than £300 and we don't think you will get a better value festival than that, anywhere.
