"Nikki Sixx Says Recording New Motley Crue Music ‘Feels Like Magic"
Motley Crue has entered drummer Tommy Lee’s studio called The Atrium in Calabasas, California to begin recording a new song that will be released to coincide with the band’s upcoming summer tour.
Commented Motley Crue bassist Nikki Sixx: "Been in the recording studio cutting new Motley Crue with the guys. We are recording at Tommy’s studio (which is insane) and James Michael is producing.We laid down the bass and drums yesterday and Mick Mars comes in today to blast the guitars. Then Vince is coming in next week to do his vocals.
"Haven’t been in the studio in a few years with the guys and it feels like magic. Hard to explain what it sounds like other than just straight-out sexy…maybe throw some dirt and sarcasm on top, too."
Motley Crue’s latest studio album, "Saints of Los Angeles", sold 99,000 copies in the United States during its first week of release. The CD was Crue’s first studio album since 2000’s "New Tattoo", which has sold over 200,000 copies in the United States, according to Nielsen SoundScan. The band’s previous studio effort with all of its original members was 1997’s "Generation Swine", which debuted and peaked at No. 4 on The Billboard 200, and has sold more than 300,000 units.
"Saints of Los Angeles" was loosely based on the band’s memoir, "The Dirt", which was published in 2001.
Motley Crue’s latest "greatest-hits" collection, suitably titled "Greatest Hits", was released on November 17, 2009 via Eleven Seven Music/Mötley Records.
Motley Crue performed its classic 1989 album, "Dr. Feelgood", in its entirety on Crue Fest 2, the sophomore outing of the band’s summer festival tour, to celebrate the record’s 20th anniversary.
Eleven Seven Music/Motley Records re-released "Dr. Feelgood" on September 21, 2009.
