California glam metallers, Ratt, have announced that they have begun working and writing a new album. The new record is expected to be released in 2012. The band decided to do a new album after the success of their most recent release, “Infestation,” to which drummer Bobby Blotzer states:
“We were just individually writing and collectively taking each other’s songs, and then putting our own individuality into our own songs. And they just came out sounding like a record that would have fit in between “Out of the Cellar” and “Invasion of Your Privacy,” respectively. It was a trip to see how everyone gravitated towards that record.”
“Infestation” was released in April 2010 through Roadrunner Records.
