Ratt singer Stephen Pearcy has signed with Golden Robot Records.
Pearcy led Ratt to multiplatinum success from 1984 to 1991, climbing up the charts with singles from “Out of the Cellar “soaring past Prince’s “Lets Go Crazy,” Van Halen’s “Panama,” Madonna’s “Borderline” and David Bowies “Blue Jean.” The record generated top 10 singles followed by sold-out tours throughout the world. This momentum remained with every proceeding Ratt album, including its most recent release, “Infestation,” in 2010.
Throughout Ratt’s nearly four decades with Pearcy at its helm, the band has released eight albums and played thousands of shows worldwide while selling over 20 million records.
“It is with great pleasure to announce my having signed on with Golden Robot Records,” Pearcy said. Choosing a label to handle my music spanning 40-plus years in the industry is no easy task. Although, (CEO and President) Mark (Alexander-Erber) and Golden Robot have captured the modernization of the industry and marketing, as well as held onto the old-school style that has served me well for decades, both of which are needed to handle a catalog as mine and the new music I bring to the table. As an artist, songwriter and performer, evolving is inevitable, therefore my team has to be on point and lightning quick to keep up. Mark and Golden Robot understand that concept and I look forward to our collaboration.
“With our first endeavor being the Stephen Pearcy ‘Legacy’ album, this album will be a career retrospective from 1976 to date. I look forward to sharing never heard Ratt classics in their infancy, early Ratt with Jake E. Lee, live Ratt, Arcade, solo covers, the last song written with Robbin, the last song written with Warren and so much more. This is the first time I’ve reached so deep into the archives and it’s truly been a labor of love. Cheers to Mark and Golden Robot, we are about to bring Ratt and ’80s music fans the most authentic and thorough archive of music that was an interictal part of creating the ’80s Sunset Strip music scene!”
Alexander-Erber said: “Out of the hundreds and hundreds of signings we have had over many years, I have to say after a long while courting Stephen I’m absolutely honoured he has joined our Golden Robot Family, helping us to bring rock back to the forefront. He truly is one of the best and to be part of our roster is wonderful, we have some fabulous releases planned for 2022-23.”
Stephen Pearcy is expected to release new music via Golden Robot Records later this year.
