Ratt Working on New Album for Summer Release

Publish date:

Yes, they might have been at their most popular when Ronald Reagan was president, but Ratt are still making some of the finest '80s-style metal this side of Steel Panther.

2010's Infestation was a surprising return to form for Ratt, so fans of the band should be stoked to hear that they're writing a new album that they hope to release over the summer.

A posting on frontman Stephen Pearcy's official Facebook page confirms as much, saying: "Warren, Stephen and the band continue to write the new record. Expect a whole new breed of Ratt for a summer release and tour, TBA. Till then, there could be a few surprise shows."

There's also the small matter of Pearcy and Ratt guitairst Warren DeMartini recording a song for a secret Dave Grohl project -- one that may also include a contribution from Slipknot vocalist Corey Taylor.
