After a successful Spring tour, 80’s hard rockers Ratt are excited to continue their “World Infestation” with Germany’s Scorpions.

Due to emergency surgery, vocalist Stephen Pearcy was recently forced to cancel a string of European dates; however, the Ratt family reports that he has made a full recovery and is eager to get back on the road.

“Despite the forced break with my surgery, I'm feeling better and being out here on tour with the Scorpions is rehabilitating, to say the least,” Pearcy said. “We’re doing different songs from Infestation and they are going over great! We’re mixing up our set and kicking some ass. It’s a Scorpion sting with some Ratt ‘n’ Roll!”

The upcoming tour supports April’s “Infestation,” which debuted at #30 on the US Billboard Top 200 chart and #4 on the Top Hard Music chart.
