Stephen Pearcy’s new studio album ‘Smash’ to be released on January 27th
Former Ratt frontman Stephen Pearcy will be releasing his fourth solo album Smash via Frontiers Music Srl on January 27, 2017.
Frontiers Music Srl‘s press release states in part (with slight edits):
“Frontiers Music Srl is thrilled to announce the January 27th release of Stephen Pearcy‘s fourth original solo album, “Smash“. Stephen Pearcy, best known as the original vocalist and founding member of the platinum rock band Ratt, has been working hard to complete his highly anticipated new album, while at the same time keeping busy performing shows across the U.S….
Digital pre-orders include an instant download of “I Can’t Take It”
Stephen will be supporting “Smash” with live dates in the U.S. and internationally.
“It took long enough to finish the new record “Smash” and it is well worth the patience taken, giving every song as much attention as the next. Erik Ferentinos (lead guitars & co-writer), Greg D’ Angelo (drums) and Matt Thorne (bass, keyboards) and myself didn’t settle on any first, second or third takes. We let some songs grow if needed, then go back and complete it. We’re very happy with the outcome, that we were able to experiment and grow with the new songs,” says Pearcy of the new album.
With over 15 million records and gold and platinum long form videos sold in the U.S. alone with Ratt, touring the world with over 20 albums to his credit with other ventures, solo projects, compilations, best of records, and other bands he created, there is no slowing Pearcy down.
Pearcy is an accomplished songwriter with credits on all of Ratt‘s records through the years (including “Out Of The Cellar“, “Invasion Of Your Privacy“, “Dancing Undercover“ and more). More recently, Ratt‘s last studio album, “Infestation“ was released a few years ago to rave reviews around the world. Stephen is also a producer, composer, television program creator, art director, marketing director, and owner/product creator of “Mic Knuckle” (hands free mic holder) and has also been involved in music for ESPN2 NHRA Drag Racing. Additionally, he has been involved in sponsoring several top fuel dragsters and funny cars since the mid 80’s-90’s thru the 00’s.”
