The Ratchets have announced the addition of a brand new member. They enthusiastically explained:

Mr. Scott "Gobots" Golley of Lifetime fame is our new drummer and we couldn't be happier. Thank you so much to all the drummers out there who offered to try out and to all the fans for their encouraging words.

So now that we have a drummer we figured it's time to get back to playing some shows. Our first show back will be this Saturday, July 14th, in Easton, PA at the Outrageous on the River Festival with Suburban Legends, Zolof the Rock & Roll Destroyer, Deals Gone Bad, and others.

As for future Ratchets plans, we're working on putting together new material and will hopefully be recording either a new EP or perhaps full length this fall. There are no concrete details or dates for a release at the moment.<

Scott Golley joined Lifetime in 1995. He remains an active member of that band.
