Thirty five years later, a new breed of RATT led by founding members vocalist Stephen Pearcy and bassist, vocalist Juan Croucier, will relaunch its well-storied hard rock brand this summer with a teaser of tour dates that foreshadow a schedule that will keep the band busy through the end of the year.
While RATT has evolved over several decades and endured various incarnations, this "new breed" of RATT promises to bring a renewed energy to the band.
"We have not had an all-original member line up since 1991 and sadly with the passing of Robbin Crosby, that chapter is over," said Pearcy. "However, if you still want to see the original band, there are many videos on YouTube and other places for fans to enjoy. That was a great band, but I guarantee that the new breed of RATT that we put on stage every night will be in your face, energized and fully engaged. Simply put, the band our fans deserve."
The band promises to deliver a show heavy in the hits from their biggest albums which have sold over 20 million copies worldwide. Being one of the original Sunset Strip hard rock bands of the '80s, RATT with the quadruple platinum-selling debut "Out of The Cellar" began their infestation in 1983 before leaving the cellar. The band continues to grow their global fan base to this day, as new fans discover RATT through streaming services like Spotify, songs in movies and new youth-oriented with movies and TV shows. The band is planning new tracks for 2019, along with a worldwide tour in support of "Out of The Cellar'" and the bands 35th year anniversary.
"Naturally, we are excited for the future of RATT," declared Croucier, continuing: "Our long-term goals are still the same: give the RATT fans the highest quality shows possible — period. The evolution of the band has had many twists and turns. We are looking to the future, and to the many good times ahead. We are moving forward with — the new breed of RATT
