QUIET RIOT has released the first song with new vocalist James Durbin called "Freak Flag" (Hear Below). The track is taken from the band's new album, 'Road Rage', which will be released on August 4 via Frontiers Music Srl.
QUIET RIOT - "Freak Flag":
QUIET RIOT is led by drummer Frankie Banali, who is joined by bassist Chuck Wright (who has been in and out of the band since 1982), guitarist Alex Grossi (who has been in the band since 2004), and new 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, hooked up with QUIET RIOT after the dismissal of Seann Nicols (formerly of ADLER'S APPETITE and TARSHA). Nicols was with QUIET RIOT for just a few months, but long enough to record the vocals for an early version of 'Road Rage'.
'Road Rage' was originally scheduled for release in the spring of 2017, but with the injection of newfound energy for the band with the addition of Durbin in the vocalist slot, the band decided to scrap the original sessions and record a new version of the album with the new and improved lineup. see QUIET RIOT On the Road: • 6/2: Lincolnton, NC @ Court Square • 6/4: Myrtle Beach, SC @ The Boathouse Concert Series • 6/10: Farmington, Hills MI @ Motor City Harley Davidson Festival • 6/17: Sauk Rapids, MN @ Old Capital Tavern • 6/23: Lynchburg, VA @ Phase 2 • 6/24: Big Spring, TX @ Annual Fantastic Fourth • 6/30: Marksville, LA @ MARI CENTER - PARAGON CASINO • 7/1: Junction City, KS @ Sundown Salute • 7/7: Santa Cruz, CA @ Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk • 7/15: Lake Ozark, MO @ The Horny Toad At Camden On The Lake • 7/21: Las Vegas, NV @ The Golden Nugget Casino • 8/11: Greenville, TX @ The TExan Theater • 8/12: Longview, TX @ Maude Cobb Event Center • 8/18: Imperial, NE @ Chase County Fairgrounds • 8/25: Le Roy, NY @ Jam At The Ridge • 8/26: Port Falls, ID @ Stateline Cruiser • 9/1 - San Pedro, CA @ USS IOWA - Fleetweek 2017 • 9/2 – Wilmington, NC @ The Thorne Theater • 9/7 - Jim Thorpe, PA @ Penn’s Peak • 9/15 - East Durham, NY @ Catskill Mountain Thunder • 9/21 - St Charles IL @ Arcada Theater • 9/23 – Newkirk, OK @ Southwind Casino • 10/19: Houston, TX @ Proof Rooftop • 10/28: Brownsville, TX @ Rock The Park Festival • 10/29: Pekin, IL @ Avanti’s Dome - Rock ’N’ Skull Festival • 11/4: Pembrook, Pines FL @ Rockfest 80’S -CB Smith Park • 11/8: West, Hollywood CA @ The Whisky A Go Go 2018 • February 15-19 Rock Legends Cruise
