The "Turn It Up" radio show will interview guitarist Warren DeMartini of Californian rockers RATT tonight (Saturday, August 1) at approximately 7:00 p.m. EST. The program can be streamed live via the Internet at www.wscafm.org.
"Turn It Up" is a two-hour radio show on WSCA 106.1 FM in Portsmouth, New Hampshire that focuses on new and classic hard rock and heavy metal.
RATT recently entered the studio to start recording its first studio release in 10 years. The CD is being produced by Michael "Elvis" Baskette, whose credits include PUDDLE OF MUDD, CHEVELLE, SALIVA, LIMP BIZKIT, ALTER BRIDGE and THREE DAYS GRACE, to name a few.
RATT was scheduled to spend a month or so recording the new album in Mathews, Virginia — the first time the band has steped outside of Los Angeles to track a new CD in 20-plus years. An early 2010 release via Loud & Proud/Roadrunner Records is expected.
Over the past two years, RATT has toured the world in support of their releases "Tell The World - The Very Best Of Ratt" and their first-ever DVD, "Videos from the Cellar - The Atlantic Years". During this time, the current lineup of Stephen Pearcy, Warren DeMartini, Bobby Blotzer, Robbie Crane and Carlos Cavazo played shows in Australia, Colombia and Peru for the first time in their careers.
DeMartini was interviewed on July 24, 2009 when the band performed at the House Of Blues in Chicago, Illinois. Watch the 10-minute chat below.
