The “new breed” of RATT, featuring founding members vocalist Stephen Pearcy and bassist Juan Croucier, have announced some 2018 dates. The group also confirmed that they will be celebrating the 30th anniversary of “Out Of The Cellar” on a 2019 tour.
Pearcy commented on the band’s latest incarnation:
“We have not had an all-original-member lineup since 1991, and sadly with the passing of Robbin Crosby, that chapter is over. 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.”
“Naturally, we are excited for the future of RATT. 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!”

A judge recently denied Bobby Blotzer’s appeal regarding the Ratt name, but he still seems to be fighting. Boltzer still believes that Stephen Pearcy, Juan Croucier, and Warren DeMartini do not have a right to tour as RATT.
Here’s Boltzer’s statement:
Just a small bit of info regarding the three bland mice show over the weekend and where things stand on the legal side
Thing look a lot worse than you think. If those lying thieves or anyone not privy to this knows whats going on, it sure as fk ain’t over. It it were, where’s the judgement?
PREDICTION: Injunction granted W.B.S. Inc RATT on tour all year.
Can’t give it all but, I can say with a true tongue, this is definitely not over. Very good surprises coming.
I saw a video of a couple of songs. Groundhog day.
