(hennemusic) Motley Crue guitarist Mick Mars has revealed in a new satellite radio interview that the band plans to release a new single for the launch of their farewell tour.
“I just wrote a new song with Nikki [Sixx], and we’re gonna be finishing it up, like, within the next couple of months,” Mars told Eddie Trunk during the March 3 edition of “Trunk Nation” on SiriusXM’s Hair Nation. “There’ll be a new single [released in time for the upcoming tour].”
Mars’ comments come on the heels of those recently made by Sixx, who said the band has no plans to issue a new album in sync with the 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 told 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.” more on this story
