Occasional frontman Stephen Pearcy is apparently back in the band, as is bassist Juan Croucier, for a commercial from insurance company GEICO that features the band playing their 1984 hit "Round And Round" while "New homeowners rave about the character and detail of their new home, although they do have a small Ratt issue." The fluid lineup appears to now include guitarist Jordan Ziff and drummer Pete Holmes.
