MÖTLEY CRÜE has released a new music video for song “Shout At The Devil,” featuring footage from the band’s highly successful biopic “The Dirt.”
MÖTLEY CRÜE bassist Nikki Sixx comments on the movie: “In the film, we show painful examples of domestic violence, DUI, manslaughter, drug overdose and the loss of a child. We couldn’t possibly have crammed everything from a 430-page book into an-hour-and-50-minute movie, but we felt we achieved our objective of showing the downside of sex drugs and rock and roll.”
MÖTLEY CRÜE have collectively agreed to rip up the “cessation of touring” contract that they signed back in 2014 preventing any of them from performing under the band’s name in the future.
Almost 6 years after signing a “cessation of touring” agreement, the MÖTLEY CRÜE contract is off the table because a whole new generation of Crüeheads are relentlessly demanding for the band to come back together,” band said in a statement. “Following the huge success of their Netflix biopic The Dirt, MÖTLEY CRÜE has seen a massive surge in new audience. And the band best known for breaking the rules has destroyed their cessation of touring contract in true MÖTLEY CRÜE fashion, by literally blowing it up.
After 35 years together on stage, and 30 years since the release of “Dr. Feelgood”, the members of MÖTLEY CRÜE parted ways without speaking to each other after their final show on December 31, 2015. Vince Neil, Nikki Sixx, Mick Mars and Tommy Lee didn’t come together again until 2018 to participate in the making of The Dirt movie, which unexpectedly brought them closer together again including seeing them head back into the recording studio after having gone in their own directions for several years. The fuse was lit.
