Video footage of Quiet Riot playing live with new singer Seann Nicols
Quiet Riot just played their first concert with new singer Seann Nicols at the Token Lounge in Westland, Michigan yesterday (January 26, 2017) and video footage is available via YouTube (see videos below).
Back in early October 2016, Quiet Riot announced that Nicols would be replacing singer Jizzy Pearl starting in 2017. Excerpts of the press release at that time states: Quiet Riot is very pleased to introduce Seann Nicols (formerly of Adler’s Appetite) as their new vocalist starting in 2017. Quiet Riot are currently in the studio with Seann recording their forthcoming full length album of all new material, to be released on Frontiers Records in early 2017. They will also be releasing a music video, which will be the first Quiet Riot music video since 1989. The band will kick off their tour on January 27 in Medina, Minnesota and will continue their touring schedule around the globe. Vocalist Jizzy Pearl who is departing to concentrate full time on his solo career will finish off the 2016 Quiet Riot tour dates through December. Frankie Banali says the departure is amicable. “Quiet Riot thanks Jizzy for a great three years and we wish him the very best.”
Nicols is Quiet Riot’s seventh lead vocalist after Kevin DuBrow (1975–1980, 1982-1987, 1990–2003, 2004–2007), Paul Shortino (1987–1989, 2002), Mark Huff (2010-2012), Keith St. John (2012), Scott Vokoun (2012–2013) and Jizzy Pearl (2013–2016). Nicols is the fifth lead vocalist since the passing of the band’s most recognized singer DuBrow on November 25, 2007.
