CHRIS JERICHO's KISS covers Band KUARANTINE is back with fourth
single, 'Silver Spoon' From
In 2020, FOZZY singer Chris Jericho joined forces with TRIXTER/FOZZY
bassist P.J. Farley, guitarist Joe McGinness and drummer Kent
Slucher to form a 1980s KISS cover band called KUARANTINE. The
band's latest single, a version of "Silver Spoon", which originally
appeared on KISS's 1989 album "Hot In The Shade", can be streamed
below. The new track, available via Madison Records with
distribution by The Orchard, was the second most added song this
week on the Billboard Rock Indicator chart and marks the fourth
release from KUARANTINE, which has been entertaining fans with its
versions of KISS rarities and some good ol' fashioned rock music.
KUARANTINE's version of "Silver Spoon" has even drawn praise from
KISS frontman Paul Stanley, who said: "My favorite song on 'Hot In
The Shade' by far. Sounds great… well done!"
KUARANTINE first debuted in May 2020 with the release of "No No No",
which reached No. 25 on the Billboard Mainstream Rock chart. The
band has since issued its versions of "Heart Of Chrome", featuring
former KISS guitarist Bruce Kulick, and "Love's A Deadly Weapon",
amassing nearly half a million total views on their videos on
YouTube and close to 200,000 total streams across DSPs.

We’ve been friends a long time. We were talking the other day and
realized that we’ve known each other, written songs, and played in
bands together since we were 18 years old. That’s well over 40
years! Here’s five songs we uncovered recently that we’d almost
forgotten about. These recordings were saved for more than 30 years
on 2” analog multitrack tape and two track mixes on 1/4” tape, but
were unfortunately disintegrated beyond use. After some digging, a
DAT tape and a cassette were the only usable sources we could find.
These recordings were almost lost forever. Now thanks to a bit of
digital polishing, these songs have come to life! We thought they
should see the light of day.
For “So Good, You Should…”, Michael again teamed up with
guitarist partner BC, Charlotte Tybalt, Dennis Post, Stevie
Rachelle (Tuff), Frankie Muriel and Tod T Burr to release their
first ever covers album which also includes 2 brand-new tracks.
Due to the pandemic making in-person studio recording
impossible, Shameless recorded the recorded the record at 12
different locations all over the world including Munich, Los
Angeles, Las Vegas, St. Louis, Copenhagen and Auckland, New
The band already released the single “Live
with Charlotte last year in conjunction with Michael's book
“Looking Inside: The Stainless Sensation”, a 500 page deluxe
bound definitive history of John DeLorean, the DMC 12 and the
DeLorean Motor Company.
Charlotte sings 5 of the new tracks plus adding backing vocals
on almost all the other tracks. Like on all Shameless releases, Tuff
singer Stevie Rachelle, sang on a couple of the songs. Kiss legend
Bruce Kulick is featured on a total of 4 songs including
their version of the unreleased
Gene Simmons song “Love is
blind” and the cover of “East Bound And Down” where the band was
joined by Jaret Reddick of Bowling For Soup on vocals. Tracii
Guns appears as well on the new release.
Three more singles and videos will be released in advance to the
album “So Good, You Should” - starting with the track “Shout Out
Loud” on February 4th, 2022!
