NIKKI SIXX Expresses “He Cannot Currently Justify” For MÖTLEY CRÜE To Produce More New Music


The latest musical attempt from the Mötley Crüe circle was a track named “Dogs Of War,” marking their initial material with John 5 taking over from the band’s lifelong guitarist Mick Mars. According to the recent statements made by Nikki Sixx, it appears that Mötley Crüe has no immediate plans of venturing back into the recording studio.

In a recent discussion with Riff X‘s “Metal XS,” Sixx touched upon the band’s upcoming ventures and the probability of creating new music. He shared (as transcribed by Blabbermouth): “We’re currently engaged in festival performances, which will carry on until October. Plans for the following year have not been laid out yet. Some discussions are ongoing. We’ve already recorded a few singles, so it doesn’t seem likely for us to tackle new music at the moment… Our physical presence will be limited. I reside in Wyoming, Vince is based in Tennessee, with two individuals in California, hence I find it hard to perceive a necessity currently for entering the studio, given that we have two additional singles on standby for release. I always prefer the certainty that when we decide to enter the studio, it’s fueled by a purpose or genuine inspiration. The logistical challenge is significant, coupled with our touring commitments and family obligations. Personally, I have a five-year-old daughter, and I desire to spend as much time as possible with her. Hence, the timing for the demo recordings of these three songs and subsequent studio work with producer Bob Rock was quite opportune. A similar window will present itself in the future, but there’s no need to rush.”

When questioned about a potential comeback to Europe, Nikki remarked, “As we progress towards ’24, the outlook for ’25 remains uncertain; however, we’ll definitely devise entertaining schemes and ensure our presence for the fans. We just wrapped up a European tour, so a swift return seems unlikely. Nevertheless, our fondness for the region is unwavering. The recent European stint was immensely gratifying. We had the pleasure of spending an extended period of two months there, which was enriching. The leisurely pace allowed us to adjust to the time zone and eased our schedules. I had my family accompanying me, providing an opportunity to not only perform concerts with the band but also explore diverse parts of Europe. It was an enriching experience.”

Reflecting on the current tempo of the band, Sixx added, “I’m relishing the current work pace. It’s truly fulfilling. I don’t feel overwhelmed. Historically, artists often experience burnout due to extensive touring. Presently, I’m content with our rhythm. We create music when the creativity flows; our performances are driven by inspiration.”
