Having just returned from two weeks in the Republic of Korea performing concerts for US armed forces personnel, QUIET RIOT is preparing for their participation in this year’s “Rock Never Stops” tour along with Cinderella, Ratt and Firehouse.

“QUIET RIOT has been very busy this year with international dates that have included concerts in Spain, Guatemala, Panama, Columbia, Canada and Korea, as well as some US dates, and now we are all looking forward to spending the summer with friends and fans here in America” remarked vocalist Kevin DuBrow.

It will be a great summer of music and QUIET RIOT members Kevin DuBrow, Frankie Banali, Alex Grossi and Chuck Wright are looking forward to a great tour. After the conclusion of the Rock Never Stops Tour, QUIET RIOT will enter the studio to start recording all new material for a 2006 release.

Drummer Frankie Banali commented “The members of QUIET RIOT have been spending time this year writing material collectively as a group and individually for what will likely be a much more diversified group of songs than the band has written and we have really enjoyed the songwriting process this time around.”

QUIET RIOT were recently animated and featured on “The Simpsons” television show in the episode “The Father, The Son and the Holy Guest Star.” QUIET RIOT has now entered in the Simpsons hall of infamy following in the footsteps of musical luminaries as the Beatles, The Rolling Stones’ Mick Jagger and Keith Richards, Aerosmith, The Who, Peter Frampton, Paul and Linda McCartney and U2’s Bono.
