January 17, 2024

Coinciding with the band's 43rd anniversary today, MÖTLEY CRÜE is excited to open the virtual doors for fans to experience the world's most notorious museum, the Crüeseum, which gives visitors a glimpse into the wild 40-plus-year history of the iconic rock band. This living, breathing, virtual museum, developed in partnership with Definitive Authentic/Inveniem, features memorabilia ranging from stage clothes, photographs, instruments, to mementos and many other gems — many of which have never been seen by the public. The band's personal archives will open to fans with three different collections: "Shout At The Devil", a celebration of the CRÜE's legendary breakthrough album; "On With The Show," a dedication to MÖTLEY's life on the road; and "Home Sweet Home - Los Angeles," a dirty love letter to the city that made them. The Crüeseum is continually growing and will be replenished with exclusive items and much more to come — fans of the band are encouraged to check back often.

MÖTLEY CRÜE has partnered with Definitive Authentic to compile, archive and bring to life the expansive collection found in the Crüeseum. For access to the Crüeseum and to purchase items from the band's private collections, please visit www.Crueseum.com. MÖTLEY CRÜE are also excited to announce they are bringing back their legendary fan club from the 1980s, S.I.N. Club, due to ongoing fan demand. S.I.N. Club will give fans exclusive first access to tickets and other perks. More info can be found on the Crüeseum web site.

Commemorating the 40th anniversary of MÖTLEY CRÜE's landmark second album, "Shout The Devil", the band and BMG most recently launched "Year Of The Devil", a multi-configuration celebration of the album originally released in 1983. The centerpiece of "Year Of The Devil" is the limited-edition super deluxe box set which features the newly remastered album on LP, CD and cassette. Also included are reproductions of the original 7" singles of "Too Young To Fall In Love" and "Looks That Kill" alongside a pentagram séance board, devil board with metal planchette, metal 7" adapter, album art lithographs, tarot cards, devil candle holder and more. In addition, seven rare demo tracks have been resurrected and are included as "Shout At The Demos & Rarities". "Shout At The Devil – 40th Anniversary" is available as a streaming/digital deluxe edition and super limited-edition configurations. In 1983, at the height of the Satanic Panic, "Shout At The Devil" catapulted MÖTLEY CRÜE to superstardom. Delivering on the hype and promise of their platinum debut, "Too Fast For Love", MÖTLEY CRÜE's second album hit the U.S. Top 20 and was certified four times platinum. For many music fans, "Shout At The Devil" was the first time they witnessed an album with this imagery and lyrical content on mainstream retail shelves.
