Ratt 2010 features singer Stephen Pearcy, guitarist Warren DeMartini, drummer Bobby Blotzer, bassist Robbie Crane and new guitarist Carlos Cavazo (ex-QUIET RIOT), engineered Hollywood’s much-heralded Sunset Strip sound in the 1980s.“We wanted this to be like something that we would have written right after (1984’s) Out Of The Cellar," Pearcy stated recently. “We definitely went back to basics with the mindset of a band with a lot of excitement and some great songs to get out.”
Ratt have recently unleashed a new music video to support the lead single off Infestation, entitled 'Best Of Me'. View below:
