Pearcy says, "I'll keep establishing 'M.I.A.' for TFR acts, and a place for me to try out my new music. The new songs from 'Under my Skin' are much brighter topics and RATT-like in elements. A lot less aggressive then the last two solo CDs. More of what is and not expected. I've been working on the record on and off for almost a year!"
