NIKKI SIXX Talks About MÖTLEY CRÜE’s Next Studio Album, Eventual ‘Farewell’ Tour – Feb. 6, 2013

MÖTLEY CRÜE bassist Nikki Sixx spoke to Loudwire about the progress of the songwriting sessions for the band’s next studio album.

Sixx and his bandmates last year released a brand new song called “Sex” to coincide with the launch of MÖTLEY CRÜE‘s North American co-headlining tour with KISS.

Written when the band was together during their residency in Las Vegas in February 2012, “Sex” was the first studio track from the CRÜE since their June 2008 release of “Saints Of Los Angeles”.

“We’ve been writing,” Sixx said. “We started the record with the song ‘Sex’ and I have a ton of riffs. I know Mick [Mars, guitar] has told me he has a ton of riffs and it’s just a matter of now collecting riffs. For a while, it was only writing segments of music and getting together and collaborating but now I’m starting to finish music more like I used to more — like I used to in the old days — and finish it top to bottom. So I look forward to getting in the room with my band and going, ‘Here’s ten of my ideas, what have you got?’ and then we kind of let that process happen.”

Asked about MÖTLEY CRÜE‘s long-term future, Sixx said: “We haven’t been shy that MÖTLEY CRÜE has been talking about somewhere in the near future doing a farewell tour. We talked about it on ‘Piers Morgan’ and different interviews. It’s not that we hate each other or we don’t work together well. I think it’s just at some point we want to leave it with some sort of a legacy that’s leaving it in a good way. I just see some bands that keep fucking beating a dead horse and I’m like, ‘Get off the horse, dude, it’s dead.’ And MÖTLEY CRÜE is really at one of our highest points we’ve been and I would like to see us even climb higher by seeing us finish our movie, an album and then maybe announcing a farewell tour and going out at the top. It would be a really nice look.”
