It was only recently that Motley Crue bassist Nikki Sixx promised fans that they will be recording new songs. Well, news has it that there is even more in store.
Crue ended their final tour in 2015 but got together recently to put together tracks for the soundtrack of the bands upcoming biopic The Dirt, that is based on their 2001 book of the same name.
The conformation of the band getting together for recording sessions came from drummer Tommy Lee and Sixx when they reveled they had been in the studio with producer Bob Rock.
Sixx tweeted: “Fuck can I just say it?” Adding: “I’m listening to the roughs of the new Motley Crue and 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.”
Healso reveled: “You can trust us there are ball-busters. Everybody can relax. We’re soon gonna smack you upside the head with some killer new tracks. Bob Rock is producing. It’s our movie. We know what we’re doing.”
Initially the movie started production in 2006, but after serious delays Netflix took over the project in 2017.
As for singer Vince Neil, he explained why the band had got back together to fans who thought the band had actually split following their final tour.
Neil said via social media: “For those of you who don’t understand, yes ‘the boys’ means Motley and we signed a contract not to tour anymore. We never broke up or said we would never make music again. Hope this clears it up.”
