Press release:

Stephen Pearcy's Under My Skin, his third solo album, is out now.

Known to tens of millions worldwide as the frontman for pivotal '80s rock outfit RATT, Stephen Pearcy continues to prove that what comes around goes around.

During the brief days when rock meant staring at your shoes and complaining about stardom, Pearcy was still cool enough to chill your beer. Armed with his new solo record, Under My Skin, Pearcy is indeed back for more.

“The '80s were colorful, dangerous and fun,” smiles the charismatic frontman, whose band gained him global notoriety and over 18 million album sales. “Although the '80s are fresh to a whole new generation, I never stayed there. And I never gave up the idea that rock n' roll should be about good times and having fun,” a philosophy that Pearcy rings in on Under My Skin with unmistakable clarity.

When Pearcy was growing up under the sunny skies and sandy beaches of San Diego, his heart was set on becoming a race car driver. In a cruel twist of fate, Pearcy was bed ridden after being struck by a hit-and-run driver. A friend of the teenager brought him an acoustic guitar, which opened a new door in Pearcy's life.

“I didn't intend to be a singer - I went into my first audition with my guitar and they said, 'We already have two guitar players - can you sing?'” Pearcy picked up the mic, and the rest, as they say, is history.

Fast forward to today - millions of screaming fans, tour bus miles and record sales later, Pearcy is still rocking, and to a wide audience. Drag racing fans nationwide have heard his songs 'Are You Ready?' and 'Drive With Me' on ESPN2's popular NHRA TV show. Pearcy's tunes have also appeared in videogames, indie horror flicks and as B-sides on rap singles.

His drag racing anthem 'Are You Ready?' makes it first appearance on Under My Skin. his new solo album, which Pearcy produced with Matt Thorne. The album also features the drum talents of former CINDERELLA / ARCADE skin pounder Fred Coury and guitar wiz Eric Farentino, who shares some of the albums songwriting credits.

“I went back to basics on this album, I did a lot of writing and soloing, of course the lyrics and singing,” says the Ratt n' roller. The album features a remake of 'Round and Round', featuring the Donnas. The ballad 'Time Slips Away' is a tribute to late Ratt guitarist Robbin Crosby. The first single is 'In Out Of Love'. “It's deep stuff, fun stuff, dangerous stuff. It's all just another day in the life,” laughs Pearcy. And what a life it's been.

Under My Skin was released in the United States and Japan on July 22nd on Airline/Top Fuel Records. Go to this location to check it out.
