Official press release

Legendary hard rock icons Ratt announced today that Infestation will be the title of their next album, due out in March 2010 via Loud & Proud/Roadrunner Records. Infestation is the band's first studio album since 1999. Infestation was produced by Elvis Baskette (Chevelle, Incubus, Limp Bizkit) and marks the very first time in their storied career that Ratt have recorded outside of Los Angeles! The band lived together at Elvis' Virginia studio while recording the album. In addition to core, longtime members Stephen Pearcy, Warren DeMartini and Bobby Blotzer, the album also features new guitarist Carlos Cavazo, formerly of Quiet Riot, and Robbie Crane, who has been with the band for twelve years, will continue on bass.

Ratt have enjoyed a rich, impressive and certainly long-lasting legacy through the years, having made their mark in the 1980s with several platinum albums, including Out of the Cellar, Invasion of Your Privacy and Dancing Undercover. With 1984's mega-platinum debut Out of the Cellar celebrating its 25th anniversary this year, the band is looking forward to starting a new chapter with new music to complement the impressive legacy they have established over two-plus decades.

New footage of Warren recording solo for the new Ratt song "Lost Weekend", can be seen here.

It 's tragic !! Some bands do not know when they have to retire. Please guys stop humiliating yourselves, you don't have the flame and finally show some self-respect to your glorious - for glam metal- past.Unfortunately the ''Body talks'' they used to say has turned to Money talks...

Yikes! These guys were one of the worst of the hair bands in the 80's, almost as bad as Poison. I can't believe they're still at it. Terrible music. "Round and Round" is one of the worst popular songs ever to get called metal.

I guess most of you guys never listened to 'Out of The Cellar' or 'Invasion of Your Privacy'? Great Metal albums. I guess people can't get past associations.

You must be too young to remember when crap like Ratt ruled the airwaves. It sucked in the 80's, and it still sucks now. Out of the Cellar is every bit as terrible as Open Up and Say...Ahh, Theater of Pain and Night Songs. Yes, it's metal, but it's not even remotely close to good and helped open the floodgates for the utter garbage that followed in its wake.
Icedburden - 27.10.2009 at 06:28  
I did enjoy Night Songs by Cinderella but the other two are garbage. Out of the Cellar is far better than either of those.

Of course they should retire, just listen to their latest efforts to compose a decent song...Undoubtfully they were a great band but as you say they WERE. As for your comment on Slayer, it's ridiculous for everyone who is ignorant of a heavy metal genre to express an opinion.I hate Progressive metal but I have no right and of course no will to judge the latest album of Dream Theater. Slayer is one of the most classic and acknowledged bands in the history of this music.Saying you dislike them is accepted but saying they worth shit is a mark that you are completely anaware of the history of heavy metal.

O so because my favorite is thrash i dont know metal????? hahahahaha good one. I probably know a 100 times more about metal than you do. NWOBHM, Thrash, Death, Black, Doom YOU FUCKIN NAME IT!!!!!! You think Ratt is metal, so i without a doubt know more about Metal than you do. i have no respect for someone who likes a band or bands who dress up like chicks. And you cant sing or write a song to save their lives. So you get the hell out of here... you are taking up space for real metalheads. People who think like you should be locked away forever. Long Live TRUE HEAVY METAL!!!!!!

I dont know metal??? Of course I know Pantera dressed all glam and shit before the cowboys from hell era. Do i like that shit? nope i dont... and do you know why????? BECAUSE IT ISNT METAL!!!! I love Dimebag and Vinnie and Rex but that shit is embrassing and the music they made during those times is horrible. And good for you for being a roadie, but it isnt all about partyin and shit. Ya that shit is fuckin awesome but the music is where it matters. and none of those stupid fuckin glam bands like Ratt, poison, and motley crue suck at playin music. Everything is the same. horrible rhthym, garbage guitar solos and the vocals are god awful. o ya and they arent metal!!! Never have....... and never will be. I know Metal and I know good music...... To all the real Metalheads out there.... Keep It Metal
