MÖTLEY CRÜE To Begin Work On New Album Later This Year

July 18, 2007

MÖTLEY CRÜE bassist Nikki Sixx has told MTV.com that the band should begin working on a new album, in earnest, toward the latter part of this year.

"We're always writing, but it will take its time," he explained. "MÖTLEY CRÜE is a big machine. It's like a barge. It takes a lot to turn it around and like with us, we just kind of do it and go, and with MÖTLEY, it's a slower move, but it's something I'm really proud of and something I plan on doing for a very long time."

In his upcoming book "The Heroin Diaries: A Year in the Life of a Shattered Rock Star", which hits stores on September 18, Sixx offers up an unflinching and rather disturbing look at his struggles with drug addiction. The tome — being issued through MTV/VH1 Pocket Books, a division of Simon & Schuster — comes straight from the pages of the personal journal he kept between 1986-'87, at the height of the CRÜE's commercial success.

"It's given me some closure on a lot of different issues, to be able to discover, through the book, what was driving me, which was my teenage years," Sixx explained. "[I wanted] to be able to put closure on that — my going in, digging in the dirt so to speak and finding all the demons, and then having clarity on that to be able to sit down and just make music based on that clarity."
