QUIET RIOT To Enter Studio In September

QUIET RIOT frontman Kevin DuBrow recently spoke to Glam-Metal.com about the group's plans for their next studio album, tentatively due in early 2006. A couple of excerpts from the interview follow:

Glam-Metal.com: What kind of sound are you aiming for [on the next QUIET RIOT album]? Is it modern, or bluesy like your solo album?

Kevin DuBrow: "It's kind of like neither really. Of course, it's going to have that sound like QUIET RIOT. Like some of the stuff on my solo CD, 'In for the Kill', sounded very much like QUIET RIOT. Alex [Grossi, new QUIET RIOT guitarist] brings a different sensibility to this. His writing is different from the old-style QUIET RIOT. I have a lot of material that I have written before Alex came onboard. I don't know if we are going to use much of it. Between the stuff that Alex, myself, and Frankie have wrote done together, I think it keeps it much more fresh that the stuff that I had."

Glam-Metal.com: Any plans to release the new QUIET RIOT album soon?

Kevin DuBrow: "I think we are going into the studio in September. Then the plan is to get it out in March or April of 2006."

Glam-Metal.com: Will Michael Lardie be producing it?

Kevin DuBrow: "I don't know it depends. We haven't decided whose going to record it. I would assume that Michael Lardie would at least do the vocals of me up in Las Vegas. As far as the whole thing, it depends on his schedule. He is extremely busy with NIGHT RANGER and other artists thta he is producing. He is up in Las Vegas, and the rest of the band is in Los Angeles. So we would definitely have to record the rest of the band in Los Angeles."

Glam-Metal.com: Have you ever thought about acting or appearing on "The Surreal Life" or any other type of reality TV program?

Kevin DuBrow: "They have called me different times to be on 'The Surreal Life', and it just didn't pan out for some reason or another. I would be interested if QUIET RIOT had a break. The last one started filming on March 28 as the year progresses, we are going to get more and more booked. I would like to do something, with my personality; I could be somewhat entertaining as long as they don't team me up any bad-boy goofballs. Then I would be on two reality shows, 'The Surreal Life' and 'Cops'."
