Ratt Writing Material For New Album
In a recent interview with RockMusicStar.com's John Jeffrey, Ratt drummer Bobby Blotzer revealed that the group is currently writing material for a new album, which will be released next year. An excerpt from the interview reads as follows:
Q: Let's talk about Ratt. Is the same lineup still together, which recorded the last record, Infestation?
A: "Yes. And that record turned out amazing. It was critically acclaimed around the world. And on the charts here in America, it made it to #30. We also got a couple Grammy nods. So we were very excited and weren't expecting that to happen. So right now, we're in writing mode. And looking at a spring release and summer tour. That's generally what everybody does. Hopefully we'll wind up touring longer than last time, and at least do 6 months."
Q: It's good to hear there will be another new Ratt CD, as fans really loved Infestation. Unlike so many other bands who've done 'comeback' or 'reunion records', Infestation delivered the goods, and really sounds like the band that people remember.
A: "We weren't even writing that record, trying to cop that vibe. We were just individually writing and collectively taking each other's songs, and then putting our own individuality into our own songs. And they just came out sounding like a record that would have fit in between Out Of The Cellar and Invasion Of Your Privacy, respectively. It was a trip to see how everyone gravitated towards that record."
