Fan-filmed video footage of Stephen Pearcy (RATT) performing the RATT classic “Back For More” on December 14 at Waverly Beach in Menasha, Wisconsin can be seen below. Backing Pearcy at the gig were former WHITE LION and ANTHRAX drummer Greg D’Angelo, guitarist Erik Ferentinos and W.A.S.P. bassist Mike Duda.
Original RATT bassist Juan Croucier rejoined the Californian rockers for their show at the M3 Rock Festival on May 12, 2012 at the Merriweather Post Pavilion in Columbia, Maryland.
Bassist Robbie Crane, who had played with RATT since 1997, quit the band in March 2012 to focus on LYNCH MOB. In September 2012, Crane “resigned” as the bass player of LYNCH MOB after “a wild two-year ride that [he] wouldn’t change for anything,” he said in a statement.
“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.
