Californian rockers RATT are preparing to release a digital-only compilation album via iTunes containing “music from their vaults, unreleased and live tracks from 1983 to 1991.” More details will be made available soon.
“Infestation”, the first studio record in 11 years from RATT, sold around 14,000 copies in the United States in its first week of release to debut at position No. 30 on the Billboard 200 chart. The CD was released on April 20, 2010 via Loud Proud.
“Infestation” was produced by Michael “Elvis” Baskette (CHEVELLE, ALTER BRIDGE) at his Virginia studio, marking the first time the band has recorded outside of Los Angeles. The album is full of attitude and of reflection, cycling through a range of emotions. There are party anthems that RATT are known for alongside more contemplative, thoughtful tunes.
RATT is currently working on a new album for a tentative late summer release.
