Stephen Pearcy states next Ratt album will be “quite a lot different” due to Juan Croucier’s involvement
Ratt frontman Stephen Pearcy was recently interviewed on the “Trunk Nation” show on SiriusXM channel Volume (106) on August 17, 2017 and this was reported by Blabbermouth today.
Excerpts from the Blabbermouth article are as follows (with slight edits):
Pearcy said that he still felt a strong desire to keep recording full-length albums even though fans appear to be less interested in hearing new music from veteran rock artists. “I just make records,” he explained. “I have my own record label for a reason. I just love making records. A record, whether people buy it or not, it’s still this story. Otherwise, we can whip out singles all day long. Warren [DeMartini] and I have been writing, so we can do it all day, every day. But a record and a concept is, to me, still important.”
Pearcy also confirmed that [Juan] Croucier will be heavily involved in the writing process for RATT‘s next album, marking the bassist’s first appearance on a RATT LP since 1990’s “Detonator“. And although the singer was reasonably happy with how “Infestation” turned out, Stephen said that “with Juan back in the mix writing and stuff, the next record will be quite a lot different.”
