DON’T CALL IT LOVE
Legendary hard rock and heavy metal icons Quiet Riot have announced the release date of their
forthcoming new studio album, ‘Hollywood Cowboys’, on which the band continue their historic journey
with founding member/drummer Frankie Banali joined by bassist Chuck Wright and guitarist Alex Grossi.
For their previous release, ‘Road Rage’, fans of the band had been introduced to powerhouse vocalist
James Durbin. With ‘Hollywood Cowboys’, James has done a phenomenal job.
When asked how ‘Hollywood Cowboys’ differs from other Quiet Riot albums, Banali says “This is our most
diverse release. The songs run the gamut from straight ahead balls to the wall rock tracks, to a blues song,
to double bass drum pedal to the metal songs and straight ahead rock tracks. There is a whole lotta
grooves going on!”
Musically, this new record offers exactly what you would expect from the band – arena ready hard rock
with strong hooks and infectious riffs, plus a maturity in the songwriting that only a band with such a history
and pedigree can offer.
As for the lead track, ‘Don’t Call It Love’, Banali adds: “The song essentially started with a straight-ahead
drum groove that incorporates tempo lifts within the arrangement. It made it possible for my songwriting
partner Neil Citron and I to write and build a very concise track as a vehicle for what would follow
lyrically. My dear friend and amazing songwriter Jacob Bunton then wrote the lyrics for this track and
several others as well as providing background vocals and just did a fantastic job.”
Quiet Riot are back stronger than ever and in perfect metal health with ‘Hollywood Cowboys’!
Quiet Riot is a rock & roll phenomenon. Widely known as the first heavy metal band to top the US pop charts,
the Los Angeles based quartet became a global sensation thanks to their monstrous smash hit 1983
the album, ‘Metal Health’. It topped the Billboard album charts for several months, while its follow up,
‘Condition Critical’, went double platinum. The band has continued to record (a total of 11 studio albums)
and tour throughout their three decade-plus career.
Frankie Banali’s history with Quiet Riot spans almost 35 years and he has the distinction of being the only
band member to have recorded on every one of its releases. After nearly ten years since the loss of his
a friend and co-founding band member Kevin DuBrow, and with careful consideration, soul searching and the
blessing and support of DuBrow’s family, Frankie has moved forward with the band to bring the fans a new
