RATT singer Stephen Pearcy has confirmed to Atlantic City Weekly that the band is planning to make new music available in 2020. "We're deciding now how we want to go about releasing it, whether it will be a full record or just a bunch of singles," he said. "I think we will probably go that route though — release a few singles, see how people take to it and the rest is easy."
Pearcy also talked about RATT's current lineup, which also includes bassist Juan Croucier, along with drummer Pete Holmes (BLACK 'N BLUE) and guitarists Jordan Ziff (RAZER) and Chris Sanders (BRITNY FOX, KNIGHT FURY). Asked how he and his bandmates are getting along, Pearcy said: "Very well. It's probably the most cohesive we have been."
Back in May, Pearcy told Sleaze Roxx that he and Juan will be the primary songwriters of any new RATT music. "You know, 'Lack of Communication', 'You're In Love' and all these other songs that we co-wrote together, so we're going to try along those veins for songwriting," he said. "And we'll see what happens. I have plenty of ideas. Juan's got plenty of ideas and we'll see what the other guys have to offer down the line."
This past January, Pearcy underwent knee surgery. The operation came three months after two disastrous RATT shows that saw the now-63-year-old singer incapacitated to the point where he had trouble remembering the words to some of the band's biggest hits.
