Dave Castagno from Radio Screamer spoke with Ratt drummer Bobby Blotzer at the 2012 NAMM show which was held in Anaheim, California earlier this year.

About the band's upcoming studio album Blotzer said "it will be out in August. We'll work up about 30 songs and pick 12. It's good to be back. We took a year off and that was boring! So I branded my own wine and hot sauce line. But it still didn't fill the void of performing and tour which is what I live for. We're getting along fine. It's like being married to five guys. It's not easy, but you've got to work at it."
