Ratt Frontman Stephen Pearcy Promises New Music For 2008

RATT frontman Stephen Pearcy has posted the following message:

"Ratt n' Rollers!!!

We'd like to thank everyone for coming out to the Ratt shows this summer. We/Ratt had a great time. Wish we could have played the whole catalog and then some. That's for next year!

We'd like to thank our rodent crew, management and the POISON band and crew for "nothin' but a good time". There is an extensive tour of Europe in October and a few shows in Japan in November to finish out the year.

I'm finishing up my third solo CD, Warren (DeMartini) and I have written a few songs and have plenty of ideas to start on new Ratt muzik for 2008. We intend to kick some serious ass as soon as we can get into the studio after the tour. There will be new Ratt n' Roll coming your way real soon!

A special thank you to Evan Knoll, Clay Millican, Dan Pirkowski, and the race team and personal. The Torco Fuels/Skull Gear/Ratt Top Fuel dragster will finish out the NHRA season, the band and myself will try and make an appearance at the track if our schedule permits. Please come out to a drag race and support the team! Ratt n' Roll with Evan Knoll!

Check the Torco Fuels/Skull Gear web sight and NHRA.com for more information on events. There is a lot being talked about for the future with Evan and myself, keep your ears and eyes wide open. You might miss a Ratt at 300 MPH!!!!!

Again Thankx for coming out and we appreciate the past, present, new and abused hard core Ratt fans. See ya soon, the party has just begun!"
