I hadn’t even recovered from the shock that singer Ronnie Atkins of Pretty Maids, who recently released their new, brilliant album, was battling lung cancer when it was time for another shocker: drummer Frankie Banali is battling stage four pancreas cancer. Horrible, horrible news. And just like the case of label mates Pretty Maids, the news broke just in time for the release of their brand new album, their first with the same line-up as the predecessor since Jesus went to pre-school. And speaking of line-ups, when Quiet Riot was about to release their last album Road Rage back in 2017, singer Seann Nicols jumped ship but luckily enough, the band hired American Idol contender James Durbin, pulled back the record, re-recorded the vocals and released the record and everything seemed hunky-dory in the riot-camp. The band toured a lot, released a live record earlier in 2019 and then hit the studio for a follow-up.
