Stephen Pearcy

Naperville, IL (August 1, 2017) — The Naperville Jaycees proudly add Stephen Pearcy, best known as the original vocalist and founding member of the platinum rock band RATT, to the Naperville Last Fling Main Stage lineup on Sat., Sept. 2, 2017.

Pearcy will be opening for multiplatinum artist Bret Michaels for a great evening of rock-n-roll. Tickets are now available for purchase online.

FYI: With great regret, Tom Keifer requires laser surgery on a severely strained vocal chord, and as a result, must cancel or postpone shows until September 14, 2017, when Keifer will pick up his tour schedule again.

Brief Bio of Stephen Pearcy

Stephen Pearcy is an accomplished songwriter with credits on all of RATT’s records through the years 1983- Present (“Out Of The Cellar,” “Invasion Of Your Privacy,” “Dancing Undercover” and more). More recently, RATT’s last studio album, “Infestation” was released a few years ago to rave reviews around the world.

With over (15) million records and gold and platinum long form videos sold in the U.S. alone with RATT, touring the world with over 20 albums to his credit solo projects, compilations, best of records, and other bands he created, there is no slowing Pearcy down.

Frontiers Music Srl is thrilled to announce the January 27th release of Stephen Pearcy’s fourth original solo album, “Smash.” Stephen Pearcy has been working hard to complete his highly anticipated new album, while at the same time keeping busy performing shows across the U.S. The first audio offering from “Smash,” was titled “I Can’t Take It.”

“It took long enough to finish the new record ‘Smash’ and it is well worth the patience taken, giving every song as much attention as the next. Erik Ferentinos (lead guitars & co-writer), Greg D’ Angelo (drums) and Matt Thorne (bass, keyboards) and myself didn’t settle on any first, second or third takes. We let some songs grow if needed, then go back and complete it. We’re very happy with the outcome, that we were able to experiment and grow with the new songs,” notes Pearcy regarding the new album.
