QUIET RIOT has "amicably" parted ways with singer Scott Vokoun and has replaced him with LOVE/HATE vocalist Jizzy Pearl.
Pearl (pictured above) will make his live debut with QUIET RIOT on New Year's Eve (December 31) in Flagstaff, Arizona.
QUIET RIOT is currently in the recording studio with Jizzy in preparation for the release of a new album in early 2014.
Says QUIET RIOT in a statement: "[We] thank Scott for his past dedication and wish him much continued success."
Vokoun joined QUIET RIOT in March 2012 after the band played several shows the previous month with ex-MONTROSE vocalist Keith St. John following the departure of Mark Huff.
QUIET RIOT's current lineup is as follows:
Jizzy Pearl - Vocals
Frankie Banali - Drums
Chuck Wright - Bass
Alex Grossi - Guitar
QUIET RIOT singer Kevin DuBrow died in November 2007 of an accidental cocaine overdose. He was 52 years old.
QUIET RIOT was perhaps best known for its 1983 cover of "Cum On Feel The Noize". The song, featuring DuBrow's powerful, gravelly voice, appeared on the band's album "Metal Health" — which was the first by a metal band to reach No. 1 on the Billboard chart.
