Ratt continues to write songs for their new studio record, the follow-up to their 2010 comeback album 'Infestation' and will be releasing a compilation record on their own via iTunes, music from their vaults of un-released and live tracks from 1983-1991.
Vocalist Stephen Pearcy and guitarist Warren DeMartini have been demoing songs for the currently untitled record as well as working with the Foo Fighter's Dave Grohl on a separate project.
Stephen Pearcy has recently locked in a publisher for the new book (no title yet), which should be finished later this year for an early 2013 release. Look for Pearcy on a new episode of VH-1's Rock & Roll Fantasy Camp, which filmed in February 2012.
Selling more than 14 million albums in the US alone and establishing themselves as one of the most popular bands of the 1980's, Ratt returned in 2010 with 'Infestation' and new guitarist Carlos Cavazo (of Quiet Riot fame).
