QUIET RIOT Parts Ways With Singer JAMES DURBIN, Welcomes Back JIZZY PEARL

QUIET RIOT has parted ways with singer James Durbin and has replaced him with Jizzy Pearl. Pearl previously fronted QUIET RIOT from 2013 until October 2016, when he was briefly replaced by Seann Nichols, who played only five shows with the group before the March 2017 arrival of “American Idol” finalist Durbin.

According to “Rock Talk With Mitch Lafon”, Durbin left QUIET RIOT “to concentrate his time and efforts on his solo career.‬”

QUIET RIOT said in a statement: “We wish James every great success for his future and are grateful for his time with QUIET RIOT.‬ Welcome back Mr. Jizzy Pearl!”

Durbin recorded two studio albums with QUIET RIOT — 2017’s “Road Rage” and the upcoming “Hollywood Cowboys” — during his three-year stint with the group.

Drummer Frankie Banali resurrected QUIET RIOT in 2010, three years after the death of founding member and singer Kevin DuBrow.

QUIET RIOT initially featured the late guitar legend Randy Rhoads and went through some early lineup shifts before securing the musicians that recorded the band’s multi-platinum-selling 1983 album “Metal Health”.

Bassist Chuck Wright has been a part of QUIET RIOT, on and off, since 1982, having initially been involved in the “Metal Health” recordings (he played bass on the tracks “Metal Health” and “Don’t Wanna Let You Go”). Guitarist Alex Grossi was in the last version of the band, from 2004 through 2007, before Kevin passed away, and was asked by Banali to return in 2010.

QUIET RIOT went through two vocalists — Mark Huff and Scott Vokoun — before settling on Pearl.

“Hollywood Cowboys” will be released on November 8 via Frontiers Music Srl.
