Motley Crue Announce Release Date for New ‘Sex’ Single [AWESOME ’80S WEEKEND]
Motley Crue has announced that their brand new single, entitled ‘Sex,’ will be released on July 17, and will debut four days before on SiriusXM. The band’s summer tour with Kiss kicks off on July 20 in Bristow, Va.
Earlier this spring, Crue bassist and songwriter Nikki Sixx told VH1 Radio that the track marks a very conscious return to the songwriting of the band’s earlier days: “That was definitely on purpose. I’ve been writing very simple riffs for the last year and focusing on how these riffs would work for Vince (Neil), basically, and took it in the studio with Tommy and Mick and the thing just came alive.”
Earlier this week, the Crue’s summer touring partners, Kiss, released their own new single, ‘Hell or Hallelujah,’ the first track from their 20th studio album, ‘Monster,’ which is due out on Oct. 6. Unlike their makeup-wearing peers, Motley Crue have declared no plans to release a new album at this time.
