Ratt frontman and founding member Stephen Pearcy spoke about the band’s latest record in his interview with SiriusXM’s Trunk Nation With Eddie Trunk. The famous singer reflected on the possibility of creating and releasing a new album and shared his primary condition for it.
‘Infestation‘ is the seventh and most recent studio album of Ratt, released on April 20, 2010. The record became a great example of the glam metal genre, but the band hasn’t released any new materials since this one. Therefore, their fans have been waiting impatiently to listen to their upcoming work.
In a recent conversation, Pearcy shared his different ideas regarding their latest record, even though it generally got positive reviews and became popular among metalheads. The singer said the album didn’t feel like a home run, but he reminded everyone that Warren DeMartini and he did the most work, including Cavazo’s contribution.
Pearcy highlighted that they still have an opportunity to release a new record which will be a part of their legacy. They can do it when all members from the classic lineup, Pearcy, DeMartini, Robbin Crosby, Juan Croucier, and Bobby Blotzer, return to the band.
However, DeMartini, Crosby, and Blotzer left the band many years ago. So it’s not sure that they will accept a reunion offer from the lead singer to work on another Ratt album. Pearcy thought there was no reason to release a record without them since it’s impossible to create that original sound in their absence.
As reported by Blabbermouth, Pearcy said:
“Well, I will give you a bit of something. There was an opportunity presented to all of us. Besides it being a lucrative thing, it would be amazing. I will not do another Ratt record unless it’s all of us. There’s no reason; you won’t get the Ratt sound. We got close. People, I think, got a little pissy at me for saying that about 2010’s ‘Infestation’ that I didn’t think we hit a home run. Warren and I handled that record, but Cavazo was also involved.”
