motley crue
Crue at Hellfest, France last month

Motley Crue will release their brand new single, 'Sex', on July 17th. Ahead of that date, the song will debut on SiriusXM on Friday July 13th.

The Crue penned the song during their famed Las Vegas residency, which saw them commandeer Sin City for a few weeks in February. The band recorded 'Sex' at The Atrium, which is drummer Tommy Lee's studio compound in Calabasas, California.

Upon completion of the song, bassist Nikki Sixx said: "It sounds very much like it's off of the first record."

'Sex' is the first new Crue material since 2008s 'Saints Of Los Angeles'.

The song arrives just in time for The Tour, which the Crue will embark on alongside Kiss with Brits The Treatment in support. The tour launches on July 20th.



Here's a fabulous Aerosmith pictorial document as seen through the lens of famed British photographer Tony Mottram. Tony photographed the band over many years for various magazines and now has a monthly column here on MetalTalk.

As was often the case, only one photo ever got published and in the fast moving world of weekly magazines sometimes entire sessions would be done and left undeveloped.

Tony started shooting Aerosmith from towards the end of the period with Jimmy Crespo and Rick Dufay and onwards through the return of original members Joe Perry and Brad Whitford that resulted in the albums 'Done With Mirrors', 'Permanent Vacation' and 'Pump'.


As well as shooting the band several times in England, this collection includes images from a session at the band's rehearsal room in Boston. Littered throughout is a mixture of live and off stage photos including a selection of photos taken at London's famous Marquee club when they were joined on stage by Jimmy Page.

This limited edition hardback book, presented in a flight case and printed on silk paper, is an opportunity to own a unique selection of photos, most of which have never seen the light of day before.

This unique item is presented in an aluminium flight case and will be published in late November. Earlybird subscribers who order by 31st October will have their name printed within a dedicated page in the book.
