Mmmm, something big seems to be brewing in the Motley Crue camp. The band put up a social media post on New Year’s Eve (Dec. 31) suggesting that a surprise may be heading our way. We have to assume that it has something to do with the band’s upcoming adaptation of the book about the band called ‘The Dirt.’ The movie hits the same day as the NFL’s championship game next month.

Crue tweeted: three emojis followed by “02.03.19 #ad,” which is the date of the Super Bowl. Later, they added, “Happy Crue Year too all our #Crueheads around the world. 2019 is going to EPIC!” So, what are we to think?

The movie itself has a release date of March 22nd and will be available via Netflix. Upon seeing the finished version of “The Dirt,” Vince Neil called the movie: “fuckin’ awesome.” Playing the four members are: rapper Machine Gun Kelly as Tommy Lee, Daniel Webber as Vince Neil, Douglas Booth plays Nikki Sixx and Iwan Rheon as Mick Mars. As a side note, the movie is directed by Jeff Tremaine, who co-created MTV’s hugely popular show ‘Jackass.’
As well as the movie, fans of the band have four new songs to look forward to hearing. It also marks the first music from Crue since “All Bad Things” was released back in 2015. Nikki Sixx said of the new songs, it “feels real and raw. Everybody is playing like mad and the songs crush. Bob Rock brought the sounds. Plus we have a surprise that will confirm that we’re outta our minds. You can trust us these are ball-busters. Everybody can relax. We’re soon gonna smack you upside the head with some killer new tracks. … We know what we’re doing.”
