MÖTLEY CRÜE Celebrates Release Of 'Shout At The Devil' 40th-Anniversary Box Set With London Window Display

October 27, 2023

As MÖTLEY CRÜE heads to Japan and Australia to continue "The World Tour", BMG has released a multi-configuration celebration of the 40th-anniversary of their landmark second album, "Shout The Devil". The centerpiece 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 seven-inch singles of "Too Young To Fall In Love" and "Looks That Kill" alongside a pentagram séance board, devil board with a metal planchette, metal seven-inch 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 now as a streaming/digital deluxe edition and the following limited-edition configurations: super deluxe box set, picture disc, red/black vinyl LP, replica CD and lenticular CD.

Originally released 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.

"Shout At The Devil" continues to be a cornerstone of MÖTLEY CRÜE's live set, with the band playing up to four songs from this iconic album at every show of "The World Tour", which is currently underway. Fittingly, the original touring cycle for this album saw MÖTLEY CRÜE jump from opening act to full on arena headliners.

The ground-breaking music videos for "Looks That Kill" and "Too Young To Fall In Love" set the standard for countless MTV moments. Those two singles, combined with the sinister title track, reckless cuts like "Knock 'Em Dead, Kid", "Bastard" and "Red Hot", their frenzied take on "Helter Skelter" and the haunting nearly instrumental "God Bless The Children Of The Beast" helped create this era- and genre-defining album.

To celebrate four decades of the genre-defining album, a number of fan-driven "takeovers" are being held around the world, causing MÖTLEY CRÜE-style mayhem in major cities.

In the heart of London's vibrant Covent Garden, high-end latex fashion store Liberation has transformed the shop window into a captivating showcase with replica versions of their iconic attire. In addition to this, a specially branded van, blasting tracks from the album and featuring corner-to-corner video content, will take to the streets of London.

But the celebration doesn't stop there; it's a global takeover. Fans in Buenos Aires, Argentina, can revel in the takeover at the legendary The Roxy venue, while the GlamSlam Party in São Paulo, Brazil, promises to ignite the night. Milan, Italy's Headbangers Pub and Madrid, Spain's Kurgan Club will each experience a transformation like never before. In Mexico, the band is poised to dominate with takeovers at Dagga Tattoo Studio and Guitar Gear stores in Mexico City and Monterrey.
