QUIET RIOT drummer and very longtime HardRadio friend Frankie Banali has issued the following brief statement: "The return of the cool dark one to Quiet Riot. Ladies & gents welcome back... JIZZY PEARL." Previously, Jizzy Pearl (Love/Hate) sang for Quiet Riot from 2013 - 2016. Former QR vocalist James Durbin, who finished in fourth place on the tenth season of American Idol, has not commented on his departure from Quiet Riot, but did post the following graphic on social media. Guitarist Alex Grossi, who's been a member of Quiet Riot since 2010 stated, "The more things change, The more they stay the same - Welcome back to Quiet Riot King Jizzo!" Quiet Riot have announced a November 8th release date for their upcoming album, Hollywood Cowboys - with James Durbin on vocals - via Frontiers Music.

THE THREE TREMORS - Tim "Ripper" Owens (Judas Priest, Iced Earth, Dio Disciples), Harry "The Tyrant" Conklin (Jag Panzer, Satan's Host, Titan Force), and Sean "The Hell Destroyer" Peck (Cage, Denner/Shermann, Death Dealer) - and Steel Cartel Records have announced the Friday, November 15th, 2019 release of a 3-disc digipak, called The Three Tremors - The Solo Versions. Each of the three singers perform the band's entire self-titled debut album alone, adding their own stylings and nuances to all 12 of the songs. This brings a fresh and completely new take on the ground-breaking debut release, and all three versions are incredible in their own right. Also included are three live bonus tracks recorded from their US tour. Each of the discs has brand new original artwork from Dusan Marcovic, and reflects the monstrous nature of this endeavour.

Multi-talented vocalist, guitarist, and bassist TODD KERNS (Slash Featuring Myles Kennedy And The Conspirators, Toque, The Age Of Electric) will be performing live for five consecutive nights as part of Raiding The Rock Vault at the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas, Nevada from September 14th to 18th. Then on September 20th, he'll take the stage at Count's Vamp'd with Original Sin. Raiding The Rock Vault is unlike a regular gig as there's different musicians constantly coming on and off stage; it's very much a revolving lineup within the one evening. "It's been around Vegas for quite a while (playing well over 1000 shows), yet I was always away (on tour)," says Todd.
