Motley Crue Push Release Date, Add Track

Here's the press release I just received from the Motley Crue camp:

"Inspired by the energy and experience of their performance with their Crüe Fest cohorts Buckcherry, Papa Roach, Sixx:A.M. and Trapt at the press conference to announce their upcoming summer tour, Mötley Crüe extended the production for their upcoming CD, returning to the studio this week to record one more track for their first studio album in over a decade, Saints of Los Angeles. The album, which has a new release date of June 24th, follows the story of the band’s NY Times best-selling memoir The Dirt, a no-holds-barred tell-all that features every gritty detail of the group’s exploits as one of the world’s biggest rock bands.

Says Sixx, 'Before our performance at the press conference, we were firing on all cylinders at sound check just jamming out, and that’s when the new idea came. We quickly laid it down and went to the studio to record it, and liked it so much we pushed back the release one week so that we could get it onto the album – it now has 13 tracks. It’s the ultimate song to end the record with and begin the new chapter of our career.'"

I suppose I can deal with another week of waiting. Sigh.

Now, I love Motley, don't get me wrong... I just hope the hype isn't more than the end result.

Hey, Fletch, congrats on the upcoming birth. We just had a baby boy 6 months ago so you're free to use the girl's name we picked out: Harper.

:) Best wishes.

" for their first studio album in over a decade"

erm... according to Amazon, New Tattoo came out in 2000. Oh, Randy doesn't count anymore ?

I have trouble believing this - they needed to add another song, so they added a week ? I think there's more to it. But, then, I am jaded on anything Motley (i.e. Nikki) wants to tell me.

Adding a song isn't a 5 minute job. I don't care if it's pushed back a week .. as long as it doesn't turn in to another Chinese Democracy - lol

Well, it better be a good song to delay a week. I don't believe it.....either they actually needed more time and they are using this as an excuse or.....maybe one of the guys in the band made a power play for another credit on the album? Just speculation here.....

I'm looking forward to the new record and, yes, it will be the first new record by the ORIGINAL lineup but New Tattoo (2000) was a solid album and they shouldn't ignore it. It's all probably down to making sure the press release was in line with Tommy's fragile ego.

As long as the album is good and the tour happens, I'm happy.

i love how everyone is reading into this...its nothing more than what was said....the cd was originally 11 tracks(via the interview here)...theyve added they are recording this week..

not to mention Coldplay, judas priest etc. are coming out June 17th...if they want a shot at #1...pushing it back a week is the way to do it..
