During a recent interview with Vintage Rock Pod, Stephen Pearcy (RATT) offered an update on his next solo record. According to him, the effort will be a double album.
Pearcy said the following:
“So much time has passed since we started writing, Erik [Ferentinos] and I — my guitar player and co-writer guy [for] most of my solo [stuff]. It was so long ago. And the record was done; we had the songs written, like, six months ago. And that was a year process. Since then, I’ve been writing like a fool and writing with him, and all these new songs [came out]. So I figure let’s do a double record and give it all you’ve got — just go in there and lay it down and say, ‘Here. This is what happens in two years when you write tunes.’ ‘Cause they’re way different. It goes all over the place, this record. Our new bass player, Jerry Montano, he did time in HELLYEAH; he’s more of an aggressive writer/player. So these songs could be real heavy, heavy or they could be RATT sounding, obviously, if I write ’em. I’m trying to take ’em outside. I’m trying to do a lot of different things. And it’s gonna be interesting, because it’s gonna go all over the place, so good luck.”
He went on to say the effort won’t be released until sometime in 2022:
“It’s been put off. We’re gonna try to get through this year. I’ve got some things to take care of with what the band RATT’s gonna do… And once I get in the studio, I don’t mess around. That’s one thing I learned from [producer] Beau Hill, is you make shit happen. Don’t waste time. And we don’t. I crack a whip.”
