Ratt Reveals Details For New Album, "Infestation"

Ratt has announced April 20, 2010 as the release date for their Loud & Proud debut album, "Infestation," an 11-song opus that is their first studio record in 11 years. The first single, “Best of Me,” is scheduled to impact rock radio on February 21. The song is available at all digital stores.

There’s been a flurry of activity in the Ratt camp in the past few years. Vocalist Stephen Pearcy has returned to the fold and the band has since signed to Loud & Proud/Roadrunner.

“We wanted this to be like something that we would have written right after [1984’s] Out of the Cellar,” Pearcy said. “We definitely went back to basics with the mindset of a band with a lot of excitement and some great songs to get out.” Infestation was produced by Elvis Baskette (Chevelle, Alter Bridge.) in the helmer’s Virginia studio, marking the first time the band has recorded outside of Los Angeles.

The track listing for the album is as follows:

Eat Me Up Alive
Best of Me
A Little Too Much
Look Out Below
Last Call
Lost Weekend
As Good as it Gets
Garden of Eden
Take a Big Bite
Take Me Home
Don’t Let Go
