Motley Crue talk about releasing new music

Motley Crue bassist Nikki Sixx says the band has no plans to issue a new album in sync with their upcoming farewell tour, but the group is considering options regarding the release of new music.

"We have music written, [but] it's not put together yet," Sixx tells 95.1 KSKY in Rapid City, South Dakota. "It's hard, to be honest with you, to spend six [or] nine months to write eleven songs — all those lyrics… everything… the vocals, the guitars, the bass, the sonics, the mixing, the mastering, the artwork… You put it out and nothing [happens], because now
people cherry-pick songs. So we go, 'Why don't we write songs and find vehicles to get one, two or four songs to ten million people rather than eleven songs to a hundred thousand people. That's how we're thinking. I don't know if it's right or wrong, but that's how we're thinking."

Motley Crue last released new music in 2012, when they issued the single “Sex” to promote the band’s summer tour with KISS; the group’s last full album was 2008’s “Saints Of Los Angeles.”

Motley Crue’s 2-year farewell - billed as “The Final Tour” and featuring special guest Alice Cooper - will kick off July 2 in Grand Rapids, Michigan.
