(PR) The original hard rock hit-makers RATT celebrate the Year Of The Ratt with a very special West Coast US run of dates this month. In honor of their Southern California roots the band is embarking on a 4-show mini-tour to commemorate the 25th Anniversary of the Ratt EP.
Says Ratt lead vocalist Stephen Pearcy, "The EP is what broke us back in 83 on Southern Cal radio, Both LA rock stations at the time played songs from the EP, San Diego soon followed. Then we got our deal with Atlantic Records and the rest is history."
Ratt recently performed the entire EP along with other Ratt faves live on the nationally syndicated radio show Rockline to an overwhelming response. Host Bob Coburn expressed that he was "Totally blown away" by Ratt and that they "Flat out kicked ass" as they delivered one of the best shows in the 27 years of Rockline! "We wanted to pay homage to the music that got us noticed and there is not better way then to do it in Southern California and Las Vegas" says drummer Bobby Blotzer.
The band is working on some plans for the summer and will have some major announcements in the very near future.
