Quiet Riot continues a historic journey in 2017 with new album "Road Rage." Led by drummer Frankie Banali, who is joined by veteran bassist Chuck Wright , guitarist Alex Grossi, and new vocalist James Durbin, the band continues to be an unstoppable force in the rock 'n roll world.

Following delays for re-recording after the departure of the band's previous vocalist, "Road Rage" is now set for release August 4th, 2017 via Frontiers Music Srl.

Today the first song from "Road Rage" and the first ever Quiet Riot track featuring James Durbin on vocals has been made available for streaming. Get your first listen to "Freak Flag" below.

Drummer Frankie Banali comments: "Quiet Riot has always recorded songs that have a link with the QUIET RIOT "sound" and at the same time always musically moving forward. "Freak Flag" is such a song with a strong connection to our iconic sound from the past, which I think our longtime fans will appreciate and newer fans will embrace."

Vocalist James Durbin continues that "Freak Flag" is a "concept I've been holding on to for a few years. It's all about being you no matter what life has labeled you with. We're all broken & searching for acceptance, but there's a beauty in that search & it's something that should be celebrated."
