According to bassist Rudy Sarzo, the next QUIET RIOT album will include a song that was originally recorded with the band’s original singer Kevin DuBrow.
Sarzo discussed the possibility of new material from QUIET RIOT during an interview with “The Rock N’ Roll & Coffee Show”, saying (as transcribed by BLABBERMOUTH.NET): “We’ve got so many songs right now. I’m really, really excited.
“We have to look at our schedule. We’re gonna start working on [the new QUIET RIOT record] in the summertime. We’ve got a few tracks already done. And then we’re just looking at what else we need to add to it.
“A lot of the tracks have [late QUIET RIOT drummer] Frankie [Banali] playing on it. As a matter of fact, we have one with Kevin singing. Every time I hear it, I get chills. Actually, it’s turning into my favorite QUIET RIOT song that I’ve ever recorded with the band. There’s a certain organic element about it. But the way that it actually came about, it’s really unique.”
Kevin DuBrow died in November 2007 of an accidental cocaine overdose. He recorded a solo album in 2004, a covers release called “In For The Kill”, and his final studio record with QUIET RIOT, 2006’s “Rehab”.
QUIET RIOT drummer Frankie Banali passed away in 2020 due to pancreatic cancer.
The surviving members of QUIET RIOT later said it was “Frankie Banali’s wish that the band continue and we keep the music and the legacy alive.” Johnny Kelly (TYPE O NEGATIVE, DANZIG, KILL DEVIL HILL) now sits behind the drum kit.
