The newly reunited RATT — featuring singer Stephen Pearcy, bassist Juan Croucier and guitarist Warren DeMartini — has begun “writing and recording song roughs” for a new studio album, according to a post on Pearcy’s Facebook page. In addition, the band — which also includes former QUIET RIOT guitarist Carlos Cavazo, who played on RATT’s last studio album, 2010’s “Infestation” — will embark on the “Back For More” tour in 2017, with the first confirmed date being the previously announced appearance at next year’s edition of the M3 Rock Festival, set to take place on Friday, April 28, 2017 and Saturday, April 29, 2017 at Merriweather Post Pavilion in Columbia, Maryland.
