Stephen Pearcy to release solo album ‘Smash’ but mum on original Ratt reunion
Ratt‘s long-time and currently former frontman Stephen Pearcy has announced that he will be releasing his fourth solo album Smash via Top Fuel Records at the end of September 2016.
The press release on LinkedIn states:
Stephen Pearcy will deliver “SMASH” his 4th solo release end Sept. 2016
Info on who, when and what label Top Fuel Records licensed his 4th solo record to, anything about the (13) new songs, the cover art, everything will wait for the press release. One interview done in a long time 2016 (with Mitch Lafon) will be the only one until the press release for SMASH. Rumors persist of the original RATT re uniting, Pearcy says; “No comment”.
Pearcy; “The new songs are very diverse, and taking time has paid off in the long run. Not rushing the writing recording process makes the title of the new record very appropriate. Right here, right now it’s all about SMASH and the solo shows to promote, no matter how long it takes”.
Pearcy is scheduled to reunite with Ratt alumni members Juan Croucier (bass) and Carlos Cavazo (guitar) on the final night of the Rock N Skull Festival in Joliet, Illinois, USA on October 30, 2016. The Rock N Skull Festival runs this year from October 28 to 30, 2016 with a pre-party on October 27, 2016. The hard rock / heavy metal world or at least the concert attendees at Rock N Skull are waiting to see and/or hear if guitarist Warren DeMartini will be joining Pearcy, Croucier, Cavazo and drummer Greg D’Angelo (White Lion, Stephen Pearcy) at Rock N Skull.
