Motley Crue singer Vince Neil is sharing an update from the recording studio on the band’s progress with a series of new tunes set for inclusion on the soundtrack to the upcoming film version of their 2001 memoir, “The Dirt: Confessions Of The World’s Most Notorious Rock Band.”

Neil tweeted news that he was working with producer Bob Rock in Nashville, TN on October 22, writing: “Me and Bob Rock finished 2 songs today! Great recording with him again.”

In August, bassist Nikki Sixx and drummer Tommy Lee confirmed the studio sessions are for the recording of four new songs for the film and companion soundtrack album.
Currently in production ahead of its release via Netflix, the group’s biopic is directed by Jeff Tremaine and features Daniel Webber as Neil, Douglas Booth as bassist Nikki Sixx, rapper Machine Gun Kelly as drummer Tommy Lee, and Iwan Rheon as guitarist Mick Mars.

The recording sessions mark the first Motley Crue reunion since the band wrapped up an 18-month farewell tour in Los Angeles on December 31, 2015.

The event produced the concert film, “The End: Live In Los Angeles”, which debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard Music Video Sales charts upon its release.

At a January 2014 press event announcing the trek, the group signed a formal Cessation Of Touring Agreement; effective at the end of 2015, the document means the members are legally unable to tour under their band name in the future.
