Mötley Crüe’s Tommy Lee Premieres Videos For New Solo Songs “Tops” & “Knock Me Down“

Mötley Crüe’s Tommy Lee will be releasing a new solo album, titled “Andro,” on October 16. Videos for the effort’s first two singles, “Knock Me Down” (feat. Killvein) and “Tops” (feat. Push Push), can be found below. Notably, both clips were directed by Limp Bizkit’s Fred Durst.

Lee said the following about working with Killvein on “Knock Me Down“:

“I heard his shit on the internet and I thought, this dude is badass, ‘Knock Me Down‘ had his name all over it. He raps like a beast, is super-talented, and actually says something. He’s gonna blow up.”

Killvein added:

“It was great working with Tommy! It’s crazy because I grew up listening to Mötley Crüe so I never imagined I’d end up working with Tommy fucking Lee. I was surprised he’d even heard of me but that’s all thanks to our mutual friend, Danny Lohner.

Danny showed Tommy my music last year and that’s when Tommy sent me the beat. I recorded half the song in my garage in Sacramento and the other half in his studio in Calabasas. I was like a kid in a candy shop in there – he has everything. The video shoot was surreal. Getting to work with both Tommy and Fred Durst on that was a dream.”

Lee also said the following about working with Push Push on “Tops”: “She’s a total troublemaker, a maniac!”

Push Push added:

“Working with Tommy was an incredible opportunity. He made sure that I was in a comfortable space, free to express myself fully and without limits. The video shoot was a dream come true. I felt empowered to show all my true colors without judgement. Honestly, that team could’ve made anyone feel like a star.”

Watch New Videos For “If You Run” & “Move Together” From Josh Homme’s “Desert Sessions”

Queens Of The Stone Age’s Josh Homme has shared new videos for “If You Run” and “Move Together” from volumes 11 and 12 of his “Desert Sessions” series. Italian filmmaker Gabriele Fabbro created the clip for “If You Run,“ while Zimbabwean filmmaker Jonathan Samukange created the clip for “Move Together.“

Fabbro said the following about the “If You Run“ video:

“I used to read a lot of news about murders, especially on European newspapers. I remember one in particular that happened in a cornfield. That article came to mind while hearing ‘If You Run.’ With this music video I want to touch themes such as ‘femicide’, ‘chase for justice’, ‘innocent curiosity vs violence’. But on top, I want to play with an existential fear. The fear of being powerless. Every tool in the video, from the shakiness of the handheld shots to the distorted sound of the radio, serves to exaggerate this fear.”

Samukange said the following about the “Move Together“ video:

“I wanted to create a seamless balance between computer graphics and reality. I want my audience to escape into a time capsule, following the tragic love story of Adam and Eve. This idea is completely nuts, but it is also grounded in reality with themes of love, togetherness, collaboration, betrayal, and even brainwashing.”

Black Veil Brides Announce New Bassist, Release New EP “The Night”

Black Veil Brides have welcomed Lonny Eagleton to the band as a replacement for former bassist Ashley Purdy. Eagleton, who previously performed with frontman Andy Biersack as part of his Andy Black solo project, shared the following message on Twitter:

In other news, Black Veil Brides have also released a new EP titled “The Night” via Sumerian Records. The effort is the group’s first in a series of two-song EPs, which they are calling “duologies.” The tracks featured on “The Night“ include “Saints Of The Blood” and “The Vengeance.“ You can find official videos for those below:

Biersack said the following about the new songs during an interview with Alternative Press:

“With the feeling of nostalgia on this one, going back into the time when we were doing the re-record [of ‘We Stitch These Wounds‘], the idea was to add two songs that felt very much like the band that we were in the past and maybe strayed away from [and] return to that form.”

He also added the following about the band’s decision to release a series of EPs instead of recording a full album:

“Quite honestly, when you’ve been a band as long as we have and put out five full-length records, EPs and everything else, you want to do new stuff. I think this is a model that we’re really excited about, and moving forward, it’s a sustainable model that we can do, something that allows us to write songs together and release music, do music videos and artwork, bring it to people and say, ‘This is the new thing.’ And then half a year later, there’s another new thing.”
