QUIET RIOT, FASTER PUSSYCAT, BULLETBOYS and former GUNS N' ROSES guitarist Gilby Clarke will join forces for the "Bang Your Head Tour" of North America this summer.

QUIET RIOT boasts the distinction of having the very first heavy metal album to debut at No. 1 on the Billboard chart, and they started the thriving Los Angeles scene that spawned countless others who followed their lead. As a testament to their longevity, QUIET RIOT's iconic anthem "Metal Health" is currently featured in contemporary media via a wildly popular Hyundai commercial and their other classics, such as "Cum On Feel The Noize" and "Mama Weer All Crazee Now" can be heard everywhere from the Tony Award-winning stage show and motion picture "Rock Of Ages" to every major sporting event. The "Bang Your Head Tour" brings QUIET RIOT back to North American stages to crank out hit after hit for a both the old and new generation of fans.

QUIET RIOT's new lineup — featuring vocalist Jizzy Pearl (LOVE/HATE, L.A. GUNS, ADLER'S APPETITE, RATT) — made its live debut on New Year's Eve (December 31) at Twin Arrows Navajo Casino Resort in Flagstaff, Arizona.

QUIET RIOT's current lineup is as follows:

Jizzy Pearl - Vocals
Frankie Banali - Drums
Chuck Wright - Bass
Alex Grossi - Guitar

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

Hollywood's own FASTER PUSSYCAT brings its notorious live show to the tour, and they always go deep into their extensive catalog including chart toppers "House Of Pain" and "Poison Ivy".

BULLETBOYS took the airwaves by storm with numerous smashes such as "Smooth Up In Ya" and "For The Love Of Money" off their platinum-selling classic self-titled debut, and the always-energetic quartet promises some surprises for this tour.

Acclaimed guitarist Gilby Clarke was a member of GUNS N' ROSES during the band's biggest era and his success continued in the CBS hit series and subsequent supergroup ROCKSTAR SUPERNOVA. Gilby will perform cuts from all of his well-known projects, including many of the GUNS N' ROSES hits.

Each artist on this bill dominated both MTV and radio airwaves in the '80s but still remains relevant to this day with heavy rotation on VH1's "Metal Mania" and both Internet and terrestrial rock radio throughout the world.

The dates for the "Bang Your Head Tour" will be announced soon.
