QUIET RIOT is a rock & roll phenomenon. Widely known as the first heavy metal band to top the US pop charts, the Los Angeles quartet became a global sensation thanks to their monstrous smash hit 1983 album, “Metal Health”.

The band has continued to record (a total of 11 studio albums) and tour throughout their 30 + year history.
