Vince Neil Says “No New” Motley Crue Album
February 5, 2013
Motley Crue frontman Vince Neil seems to have shot down any rumors about a new Motley Crue album.
When asked about talk of of a new Motley Crue platter the singer told Music News Nashville, “No — no new album. What I’m hearing is that maybe two or three or four more songs might come out to go with that song we released this year, but it will be something like an EP, not an album. Our schedule seems to have a lot of touring. If something did come out in the form of an EP, it would probably be in the beginning of 2014.”
The track Neil was referring to was “Sex”, the Crue’s first new original song in almost 4 years, which was released in July of last year.
As for writing with Motley Crue Neil continued, “It starts out with a guitar riff, and then we put it together with the other instruments and put a melody to it. After the melody and song structure are finished, we edit different parts in and out, and eventually, it all combines to become a song. There aren’t really any hard songs to write. It’s usually pretty easy, if it gets hard, it gets shuffled away and something else comes up, or it becomes something you can go back to it and use other parts with it to make it work better. Most of the hit songs have been easy to write, though!”
After over 80-million albums sold worldwide, Motley Crue returned to the top of the charts in 2008 with ‘Saints Of Los Angeles’, their first studio album with the original line-up — Nikki Sixx, Mick Mars, Tommy Lee and Vince Neil — in a decade and the ninth studio album in their career. Based on the band’s New York Times bestseller The Dirt, the disc debuted at #1 on the Independent Album chart and was the top debut of the week on the Billboard Top 200 albums at #4. ‘Saints Of Los Angeles’, which was nominated for a Grammy Award for Best Hard Rock Performance was also noted as the #1 Rock Song of the Year in 2008 by iTunes critics.
Half a million rock fans old and new celebrated Crue Fest, the top touring rock festival in the summer of 2008, featuring Motley Crue, Buckcherry, Papa Roach, Sixx:A.M. and Trapt. Continuous touring around the world brought the band back to the U.S. for 2009’s Crue Fest 2, which featured ten bands on two stages as well as treated fans to a show comprised of two separate sets — the complete track listing from the hit album ‘Dr. Feelgood’ (for the first time ever) followed by the best of the rest.
