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.
QUIET RIOT continues their historic journey in 2017 with Metal Health founding member Frankie Banali who is joined by QUIET RIOT veteran bassist Chuck Wright and QUIET RIOT guitarist Alex Grossi from their most stable lineup, and in 2017 welcomed vocalist James Durbin.
Durbin, who became known as the “metal guy” on 2011’s season of “American Idol” after performing “Living After Midnight” and “Breaking The Law” with JUDAS PRIEST, joined QUIET RIOT earlier this year. Commenting on his instatement, “I think there’s some really awesome gems in the Quiet Riot catalog that are really overlooked. I love ‘Put Up or Shut Up.’ I love ‘Condition Critical’ and ‘Thunderbird,’ even the song ‘It Sucks to Be You’ from the Quiet Riot documentary [Well Now You’re Here, There’s No Way Back]. I’m really looking forward to putting my spin on it as a singer. I feel I’m much more melodic in my singing than some of the singers Quiet Riot has featured in the past, so I’m looking forward to soaring those vocals over the crowd.”
