Steamhammer/SPV has announced the exclusive signing of MÖTLEY CRÜE drummer Tommy Lee for the European territories. The release of his third solo album, "Tommyland: The Ride", will be linked to Lee's current reality TV show, "Tommy Lee Goes to College". Tommy will present several tracks from his album on the show, due to kick off in Europe this month. "Tommyland: The Ride" was produced by Lee himself in cooperation with Scott Humphrey. The list of guest musicians on "Tommyland: The Ride" includes NICKELBACK's Chad Kroeger, FUEL guitarist and vocalist Carl Bell, SUM 41 vocalist Deryck Whibley, Butch Walker, GOOD CHARLOTTE's Joel Madden, and BACKSTREET BOYS singer Nick Carter.
Steamhammer/SPV has also announced that they will release the album at a low-budget rate at the artist's request. "From the very beginning, I wanted to do something different with this record, something ground-breaking," says Lee. "I wanted to get great new music to my fans without charging them fifteen or sixteen bucks for a CD. And SPV/Steamhammer are helping me do that, so I couldn't be happier."
Commented SPV Managing Director Manfred Schuetz: "This is exactly what you can expect from SPV."
