Bassist Nikki Sixx: Motley Crue Working On Their 'Best Album Yet'

The year 2013 is gearing up to be a big one for Motley Crue and Nikki Sixx. In addition to working on a broadway play based on his book "The Heroin Diaries", and his recent engagement to longtime girlfriend Courtney Bingham, the bassist recently confirmed that Motley Crue is indeed working on a brand spanking new full-length album.

A fan posed the question to Sixx on his Facebook page, asking, "Do you think there will ever be another full Crue album?" Sixx, obviously feeling the holiday spirit, replied with an answer that should please a lot of Crue fans, saying, "'Sex' was the first song and we've all been writing. Will get in the studio to finish what we started and deliver the best Crue album yet."

Many fans got a taste of the new material over the summer when Motley Crue toured with Kiss and debuted their first new track "Sex" live. According to Sixx, that's just the beginning and he's been "writing [his] ass off for months now." Apparently fans weren't the only ones inspired by the new tune!

As Loudwire reports, 2012 has been a banner year for the Crue as well, now three decades into their career. They kicked it off with a residency at the Hard Rock Hotel in Las Vegas, breaking ground for several other rock bands to follow in their footsteps, from Guns N' Roses to Def Leppard. Here's to a whole lot more new Crue in 2013!

    Excellent! Saints of L.A was kickass! But, I hope the rest of the new album is better than that "Sex" single. What a load of crap that was, I say that and Crue are one of my all time favourites.
    Yeah, that was a sorry song. However, I hope they do get back to the level of quality that they used to produce. BTW a lot of Saints was not entirely written by Motley Crue.
    Saints of LA was a pretty solid record. Rather than immediately writing these guys off people should give the new album a listen before judging
    I hate when bands well past their prime say that their newest is going to be their best yet. Really Nikki, it's going to be better than Too Fast For Love or Shout At The Devil?! Give me a break!!!
    I'm a HUGE Motley Crue fan and have to hope for this. I think Sex wasn't too bad of a song either.
    I really dislike motley crue.... Yes I felt the need to come in here and say it though I'm sure nobody cares for my opinion... nor motley crue...
    the same thing was said when"Girls, Girls, Girls".. was released. In later interviews, they admitted that album was rushed and contained mostly filler. Haven't been a fan since..
    So does that mean they re-hired John Corabi? "Sex" was terrible. They're one of my favorite bands, but nothing will top MC '94, and definitely not songs like their last single. It was just painful to listen to and well... not very memorable.
    Motley Crue is as delusional that they can recreate the magic of Dr Feelgood the same way Gene and Paul think they can recreate Destroyer.
