QUIET RIOT have announced plans to continue, less than a month after the death of drummer Frankie Banali.
Band wrote in a social media post: “QUIET RIOT – 2020/2021 Because life goes on!
“It was Frankie Banali‘s wish that the band continue and we keep the music and the legacy alive.
“[Bassist] Chuck Wright has been in the band off and on since 1981 and played not only on the song ‘Metal Health’ but many other QUIET RIOT Albums. [Guitarist] Alex Grossi has been in the band since 2004 touring and recording. [Frontman] Jizzy Pearl has been a member of the QUIET RIOT family since 2013 and [drummer] Johnny Kelly has been doing a great job filling in on drums this past year with Frankie‘s blessing.
“We are happy to have shows on the calendar with many more TBA and very much look forward to celebrating the history and legacy of QUIET RIOT with all of you in 2021 and Beyond…!!”
Banali passed away after a battle with pancreatic cancer on August 20 at the age of 68.
