Motley Crue is entering a new musical era, as the band is currently recording something in the studio with a legendary music producer; who could this be?
According to Consequence, drummer Tommy Lee confirmed the news on his official Instagram account, confirming that the band and new touring member John 5 have been recording with renowned producer Bob Rock.
The band members can be seen in the photos doing various things in the studio, such as playing guitar, drums and mixing songs.
“Hit that mother fucking record button Mr. Rock!!! Go!”
John 5 had previously been announced as the band’s new touring guitarist, but he appears to be a group member as he was present during the recording.
According to the outlet, Mick Mars was not seen in the photos, but it was not confirmed whether he was in the studio at the time.
Bob Rock has previously collaborated with Motley Crue, producing the classic album “Dr. Feelgood” in 1989.
Metallica contacted him after the successful album to work on their 1991 self-titled album, also known as the “Black Album.”
The Canadian record producer is well-known in the music industry for his work with some of the most well-known bands and musicians, including Cher, Joan Jett, Gavin Rossdale, and many others.
Nikki Sixx teased fans about new music last week, confirming that he was writing songs with Tommy Lee and John 5.
He wrote on his official Twitter account:
“The creative process of songwriting has always been the heartbeat of our band. We’re gonna go in the big studio next week and record a few off the floor and see where it goes,”
The rock musician said that the band has no set plans for their next musical project and wants the songs to guide them.
Motley Crue has yet to reveal an official release date, tracklist, or featured artists for their next album.
If they ever release a new album, it will follow their 2008 album “Saints of Los Angeles” on Eleven Seven Label Group.
