BRIDES OF DESTRUCTION, the new band featuring MÖTLEY CRÜE bassist Nikki Sixx, L.A. GUNS guitarist Tracii Guns, vocalist London LeGrand, and drummer Scot Coogan (ex-PAUL GILBERT, ONI LOGAN/ROWAN ROBERTSON, SINÉAD O'CONNOR), are in the process of mixing their debut album with producer Steve Thompson (KORN, METALLICA, GUNS N' ROSES) for a tentative February 2004 release. "The record is halfway done being mixed [and it] FUCKING SOUNDS INSANE," Guns wrote in a recent online posting. "Steve Thompson gets the big bucks and now I definitely know why."
The as-yet-untitled CD, which will feature contributions from previous members John Corabi (ex-MÖTLEY CRÜE, UNION) and Kris Kohls (ADEMA), will contain album-quality demos recorded during the pre-production sessions for what was supposed to be the group's "proper" full-length debut. The band have already secured a Japanese deal with Universal and are said to be finalizing an agreement with an as-yet-undisclosed label for the European and American territories.
Although Sixx had previously indicated that the group is unlikely to tour in support of the forthcoming album, Guns claims that, "depending on MÖTLEY CRÜE's schedule, the BRIDES will surely do some live dates after the release of the CD (including Nikki, myself, London, Coogie and possibly Gilby [Clarke, ex-GUNS N' ROSES] playing guitar as well). Sounds good to me."
