Motley Crue drummer Tommy Lee releases Tommyland: The Ride Tuesday (August 9), his first solo album since 2002’s Never A Dull Moment. Lee said that he worked hard this time to make sure Tommyland was a solid album from front to back.

“There’s no fillers and there’s 10, I think, absolutely amazing songs that I could hear on the radio at any second,” Lee said. “I’m really confident, and I might sound a little cocky about it, but it’s that good.”

Counting 1999’s Methods Of Mayhem, Tommyland is Lee’s third release outside of Motley Crue.

Tommyland features guest appearances by Velvet Revolver’s Matt Sorum, Nickelback’s Chad Kroeger, Good Charlotte’s Joel and Benji Madden, Sum 41’s Deryck Whibley, Backstreet Boys’ Nick Carter, Dave Navarro of Jane’s Addiction, Andrew McMahon of Something Corporate and Fuel’s Carl Bell.

Tommyland’s first single is “Tryin’ To Be Me.” The next single, “Good Times,” is the theme song for Tommy Lee Goes To College, a reality show that begins airing August 16 on NBC.

Motley Crue performs Tuesday (August 9) in Maryland Heights, Missouri.
