In the 10-plus years since Ratt's last album, Infestation, was released, the band has undergone numerous lineup changes and sparred in court over which member(s) own the legal rights to the band name. A new album was expected to be released sometime soon, though singer Stephen Pearcy has now suggested that will not happen unless the surviving classic lineup gets back together to write and record it.
The singer spoke with Sirius XM's Eddie Trunk on the 'Trunk Nation' program and offered a glimpse into that latest ongoings within Ratt, having stated (transcription via Blabbermouth), "I wouldn't want to put a Ratt record out there without the original guys. I mean, it just wouldn't make sense. We've tried it."
