Motley Crue singer Vince Neil has revealed that the band is returning to the studio to record four new songs. In a Thursday (September 13th) post on Twitter, Neil wrote, “Exciting news! I’ll be going back in recording studio in a few weeks with the boys to record four brand new Motley Crue tracks! Rock On!!”
Neil’s remarks come just two weeks after a picture of Crue bassist Nikki Sixx and drummer Tommy Lee was posted on the band’s Facebook page, along with the caption “28th August 2018.” Appearing with them in the photo was longtime Crue producer and collaborator Bob Rock. In addition, Lee posted a brief video of himself playing drums on his Instagram, captioning the clip: “It’s that new s**t!!!”
Fans have speculated that the trio were working on music for the film adaptation of the group’s biography, The Dirt – Confessions Of The World’s Most Notorious Rock Band. The movie, which is being helmed by Jackass Presents: Bad Grandpa director Jeff Tremaine, was picked up by Netflix after being previously developed at Focus Features and before that at Paramount.
Back in late 2016, Sixx told TeamRock that there was “no chance” of the band making another record, saying, “I see no reason. We couldn’t be creative as a band, so how the hell can we continue? But I’m glad the way it finished — we did it all, we did what we said we were going to do, and now I’m excited about the future.”
The group has yet to make an official announcement about where and how the four songs will show up and whether there is the possibility of more new music beyond this.
