Mötley Crüe have been working on four new songs for their film adaptation of “The Dirt” and now it appears that they may have even more in store. Nikki Sixx recently took to Twitter to talk about the new tracks and also revealed that the band have another surprise in the works. He said the following:
“Fück can I just say it? I’m listening to the roughs of the new @MotleyCrue and it feels real and raw.Everybody is playing like mad and the songs crush. Bob Rock brought the sounds. Plus we have a surprise that will confirm that we’re outta our minds.”
Vince Neil previously revealed that Mötley Crüe are working on four new songs. Now, Nikki Sixx has confirmed that those tracks are being recorded for the band’s film adaptation of “The Dirt” and that they will be “ball busters.”

Mötley Crüe’s Nikki Sixx and Tommy Lee have reunited in the studio. A picture of the two with longtime producer Bob Rock was recently shared on the band’s Facebook page and Lee’s Instagram. Considering Mötley Crüe wrapped up their final tour in 2015, it is doubtful that they are working on a new album. However, many fans have speculated that the group could be working on new music for their film adaptation of “The Dirt.”
It looks like Tommy Lee’s (Mötley Crüe) son Brandon will not be facing charges after allegedly knocking out his father. According to TMZ, the Los Angeles County District Attorney rejected the case after Lee decided not to cooperate with authorities.
