RATT singer Stephen Pearcy and JANE'S ADDICTION guitarist Dave Navarro performed an acoustic version of the RATT classic "Lack Of Communication" during an appearance earlier today (Monday, October 7) on SiriusXM's "Trunk Nation". You can now listen to their rendition below.
A short time after the program aired, Navarro shared an Instagram photo of him with Pearcy, along with the following message: "Big day for me. When @stephenperkinsdrummer and I were in high school we used to ditch and get to the clubs EARLY to see @ratt and hopefully meet the guys. Years later, I get the honor of joining @stevenepearcy on @eddietrunk today. Really grateful to be able to hang onto memories like that and take pause and grasp where I ended up. This guy was one of our inspirations back in the day! Thanks to @ratt and RIP to my ex room mate and pal #robincrosby"
Pearcy recently told The Morning Call that RATT has been writing new music. He said he is collaborating for the first time in years with bassist Juan Croucier, and even with new guitarist Jordan Ziff.
The vocalist described the new material as something between the band's 1983 self-titled debut EP and the triple-platinum "Out Of The Cellar".
Last month, Pearcy told Atlantic City Weekly that RATT was planning to make new music available in 2020. "We're deciding now how we want to go about releasing it, whether it will be a full record or just a bunch of singles," he said. "I think we will probably go that route though — release a few singles, see how people take to it and the rest is easy."
RATT hasn't released any new music since 2010's "Infestation" album.
