RATT singer Stephen Pearcy will embark on the "Metal In America XXX-Mas" tour later this fall. Along with his longtime backing band the RAT BASTARDS, Pearcy's high-energy set will cover all periods of his illustrious career — from solo material to ARCADE, and. of course, plenty of RATT classics such as "Round and Round", "Lay It Down" and "Body Talk". Support on all dates will come from '80s MTV favorites BRITNY FOX. Exact cities and dates will be announced soon.
Pearcy's third solo album, "Under my Skin", was released on July 22 via Airline Records. The CD finds Pearcy returning to the early RATT roots, featuring material that is positive and aggressive when needed. Pearcy plays almost all the guitars and solos. Erik Ferentinos (RAT BASTARD, THE ANTIDIVISION lead guitarist, vocalist) also co-wrote again on the new CD.
