New Mötley Crüe Music Described As “A Powerful Cross Between Country And Hip Hop” (Updated)


Update: April 06th, 2024 11:48pm:

Nikki Sixx has since clarified his comments on Mötley Crüe‘s new material being a cross between country and hip hop. According to a follow-up post made by Sixx on social media, his comments were meant to be sarcastic. He continued:

“Media running with a joke about new Motley Crue music just shows how they can be unprofessional and irresponsible. But they probably just saw an opportunity for clickbait to sell ads. This stuff always makes me laugh….Anyway. Our new music is actually kinda reggae EDM. But with a bit of Dylan.”

Original Story:

Those curious of what the upcoming new material from Mötley Crüe will sound like may want to adjust their expectations. The multi-platinum glam metal band’s decision to work on new songs without influential guitarist Mick Mars (an ugly legal battle between Mars and the band persists) has been controversial enough.

However, since reuniting and parting ways with Mars, the group have hit the studio with their latest guitarist, John 5, in tow. According to a post shared on social media by bassist/vocalist Nikki Sixx yesterday (April 04th), the arrival of at least some of what they’ve been working on is “right around the corner”. Furthermore, it has been described those who have heard it as “a powerful cross between country and hip hop.”

These upcoming songs will represent the band’s first since the material they released around their 2019 biopic ‘The Dirt‘.
