New York, NY – April 6, 2009 – Loud & Proud/Roadrunner Records announced today the signing of a worldwide deal with Los Angeles hard rockers RATT. The band is set to begin recording its first new material since 1999’s self-titled album this spring.


One of the most popular rock acts of the past 20 years, RATT’s brand of guitar-driven melodic rock helped shape the LA metal scene. The band boasts a deep catalog of hits including smashes like “Round and Round,” “Lay It Down,” “You’re In Love,” “Lack of Communication” and “Wanted Man” which are beloved by fans the world over. The band has gone on to sell millions of albums worldwide. 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.


“This deal is a great opportunity for us to get our new music to RATT fans worldwide,” says frontman Stephen Pearcy. “We are super excited about the new material!”


Over the past two years, RATT has toured the world in support of their releases Tell The World- The Very Best Of Ratt and their first ever DVD, Videos from the Cellar- The Atlantic Years. During this time, the current lineup of Stephen Pearcy, Warren DeMartini, Bobby Blotzer, Robbie Crane and Carlos Cavazo played shows in Australia, Colombia and Peru for the first time in their careers.


“The fans deserve the credit for making this happen. When we saw the band in concert and witnessed their passion and excitement, it was obvious that the time was right for RATT to make new music,” says Tom Lipsky, Loud & Proud President.


Guitarist Warren DeMartini adds, “we look forward to working with our friend and veteran record exec Tom Lipsky.”


The new album is set for a fall release and will be supported by a world tour.

That would be so coooooool!!!!



Seriously though even Sammy Hagar is now on his own label which is through Roadrunner. :tumbsup:

It looks to me that Roadrunner is maybe figuring out that there's a huge 80's hard rock fanbase out there. :banger:

I remember some years ago I was chatting to Steve West of Danger Danger via email about them coming over, and he said they were gonna tour with Ratt that year (probably around 2002 or so), but it never happened!
