Motley Crue fans waiting for a new full-length album may want to stop holding their breath. Co-founder and bassist Nikki Sixx discussed the group’s plans and process with fans in an on-line chat Friday night.
Fans were curious to know the Crue’s future album plans after the expected release of the band’s single “Sex” July 17th. Sixx confirmed the band is in the process of writing, but they are in no hurry to release music for music’s sake.
“How we release music in the future, whether it’s song by song, EP by EP, album by album, or soundtracks to movies, we don’t know,” Sixx wrote. “We’re open and excited about our future, and in no rush to release music just to release music.”
Motley Crue’s 2008 album “Saints of Los Angeles” is the ninth and most recent original full-length outing by the west-coast rockers. The album went on to be certified gold with the title track reaching number five on the U.S. charts.
Even though it’s been four years since “Saints,” Sixx said he isn’t worried about the hiatus between albums. But he did assure fans the band’s new single “Sex” is “just the beginning.”
“When the songs are ready, we’ll record them and how we will release them, we don’t know, because everything is changing and we kinda like it,” he wrote.
Sixx was participating in the on-line forum to promote Motley Crue’s summer tour with KISS. The aptly named “The Tour” kicks off July 20th in Bristow, Virginia and makes more than 40 stops before wrapping up in Hartford, Connecticut September 9th. The rock extravaganza stops by Blossom Music Center September 12th. Tickets start at $35.
