Ratzmataz Post New Song From ‘Global Revolution’ Online
May 28, 2012
Italian rockers Ratzmataz have uploaded the song “Take Me Home” online, taken from their upcoming debut album ‘Global Revolution’, due to come out on April 2nd via logic(il)logic Records.
Ratzmataz was founded in April 2006 by the great passion for rock ‘n’ roll shared by Martino Pighi (drums) and Loris Marchiori (guitar and vocals) over the last ten years. With the addition of Diego Franchini (bass and background vocals), the trio worked hard on song-writing, unwilling to be labeled as a cover band, and the first eight tracks were finished in less than one month.
In the winter of 2008 Ratzmataz produced its first demo/EP which was distributed to the audience for free during their live shows. At the end of that year Diego Franchini left the band. Ratzmataz decided to take a long break to find a new bassist. After a long search Alberto Bianchi was chosen to join the band. The two original members of the band immediately realized that, despite the different musical backgrounds, Alberto was the right one and they begun to work together with renewed enthusiasm.
After a couple of trial gigs, mainly as tests to improve the band’s chemistry, Ratzmataz was invited to open a tour date in Verona for Rain — a band from Bologna which had just returned from a tour in the US alongside W.A.S.P. The band quickly performed over a hundred gigs between pubs and festivals, being much appreciated not only in the area of Verona but also in Padova, Vicenza, Prato, Parma, Bologna and Trento.
Ratzmataz’s music has been influenced by classic hard rock bands such as Led Zeppelin, Deep Purple, Black Sabbath, AC/DC and Free.
