Nikki Sixx Closes Doors For A New Mötley Crüe Album
Mötley Crüe bassist Nikki Sixx shared a post to answer one of his fans’ questions about the band’s possible upcoming album on his official Twitter account. After revealing his ideas about a potential record, the musician talked about the recently finished projects and what he wanted to do next.
‘Saints of Los Angeles’ is the ninth studio album of Mötley Crüe, released on June 24, 2008. It was their first full-length studio album, including the original lineup since ‘Generation Swine’ thanks to the reunion with drummer Tommy Lee. In the following years, the band didn’t release any new materials as a part of a record and focused on live performances for a very long time. Their fans had to wait for the band members’ recording sessions impatiently.
The waiting ended when the band members started to work on the soundtrack of their autobiographical movie ‘The Dirt,’ released in 2019. Even though they mostly used their classics, new songs like ‘The Dirt’ featuring Machine Gun Kelly and the covers got critical acclaim. Shortly after, Mötley Crüe announced their Stadium Tour, which was rescheduled many times due to the global pandemic. The concerts will start on June 16, 2022, in Atlanta.
Therefore, Sixx highlighted their soundtrack projects in his recent tweet, his side band Sixx: A. M.’s ‘Hits’ album shared last year, and his work with L.A. Rats, a heavy metal cover of ‘I’ve Been Everywhere.’ Then the bassist reminded the long-waited tour, which would finally begin soon, and said it was time to get on the stage. It seems that Mötley Crüe members don’t have any plans about a new record before the tour.
Here’s what the fan asked:
“Any chance for a new Mötley Crüe album prior to the stadium tour?”
“We released a bunch of new songs for ‘The Dirt’ soundtrack, and I just finished Sixx: A.M. ‘Hits’ album and L.A. Rats. Got to get onstage now.”
