QUIET RIOT Releases Music Video For 'In The Blood'

QUIET RIOT's music video for the song "In The Blood" can be seen below. The track is taken from the band's upcoming studio album, "Hollywood Cowboys", which will be released on November 8 via Frontiers Music Srl. The clip was inspired by spaghetti westerns like "A Fistful Of Dollars" and "The Good, The Bad And The Ugly".

"It was a fun video to film in period clothes, for both the band and actors," drummer Frankie Banali told Ultimate Classic Rock. "It was filmed on western-town locations in Agua Dulce, California. It is a homage to the spaghetti western genre films and especially those by director Sergio Leone. Director Regina Banali wrote it based on many spaghetti westerns and did a wonderful job directing it. She really crafted the acting performances and did beautiful work capturing the look and feel of those classic films. And, of course, all-American boys wanted to be Hollywood Cowboys! So we all had a blast."

The follow-up to 2017's "Road Rage" will feature the following songs:

01. Don't Call It Love
02. In The Blood
03. Heartbreak City
04. The Devil That You Know
05. Change Or Die
06. Roll On
07. Insanity
08. Hellbender
09. Wild Horses
10. Holding On
11. Last Outcast
12. Arrows And Angels

The cover artwork can be found below.

Asked how "Hollywood Cowboys" differs from other QUIET RIOT LPs, Banali said: "This is the most diverse QUIET RIOT release. The songs run the gamut from straight-ahead balls-to-the-wall rock tracks to a blues song to double-bass-drum pedal-to-the-metal songs. There is a whole lotta grooves going on."

Banali previously told Canada's The Metal Voice about "Hollywood Cowboys": "My consideration always is — not because I have to, but because of the way I am — my first consideration when I'm writing something, and when I write together with my writing partner Neil Citron, is, 'Would [late QUIET RIOT singer] Kevin DuBrow like this?' And the greatest thing about Kevin is he was so open-minded and he had such a broad taste in music that there were very few things that he didn't like. For instance, on the [2006] 'Rehab' record, some of the things that Neil and I wrote Kevin really liked but it was not in his comfort zone, which is why we went out and had some of the lyrics co-written by Glenn Hughes. But, again, a lot of credit goes to Kevin, whereas I could play him a song and he would love it, and he would say, 'I don't know what to do with this.' But that did not make it impossible for it to be on the record. So that continues with the future QUIET RIOT studio release."

DuBrow died in November 2007 of an accidental cocaine overdose. He was 52 years old.

Banali resurrected QUIET RIOT in 2010, three years after DuBrow's death.

QUIET RIOT went through two vocalists — Mark Huff and Scott Vokoun — before settling on Jizzy Pearl in 2013. Pearl announced his exit from QUIET RIOT in October 2016 and was briefly replaced by Seann Nichols, who played only five shows with the group before the March 2017 arrival of "American Idol" finalist James Durbin. Last month, Durbin quit QUIET RIOT and was replaced by a returning Pearl.
