MÖTLEY CRÜE held a press conference on January 28 at Hotel Roosevelt in Los Angeles where they announced that the band will launch its “Final Tour” later this year, with the group planning to play 72 shows in North America in 2014 and more overseas in 2015. Making it official, the four members of the band had their lawyer draw up a formal “cessation of touring” agreement that goes into effect at the end of 2015 and prohibits the members of the group from going on the road again under the MÖTLEY CRÜE banner.

No mention was made of whether the CRÜE will record a new album to go along with the tour, although the group hinted at the possibility.

During an appearance on the March 3 edition of Eddie Trunk‘s show “Trunk Nation” on SiriusXM‘s Hair Nation, MÖTLEY CRÜE guitarist Mick Mars revealed: “I just wrote a new song with Nikki [Sixx, MÖTLEY CRÜE bassist], and we’re gonna be finishing it up, like, within the next couple of months. There’ll be a new single [released in time for the upcoming tour].”

Sixx in January said that that it’s unlikely that the band will release another full-length album of new material and will instead make select tracks available via special projects in order to maximize their impact.

“My take on it right now and the way that things work is very much reverted back to the ’60s where people buy singles,” Mars told Trunk. “I don’t want an album full of fillers. And that’s why I said I would release [a solo] EP or singles.”

Sixx told the Rapid City, South Dakota radio station 95.1 KSKY: “We have music written, [but] it’s not put together yet.” He added: “It’s hard, to be honest with you, to spend six [or] nine months to write eleven songs — all those lyrics… everything… the vocals, the guitars, the bass, the sonics, the mixing, the mastering, the artwork… You put it out and nothing [happens], because now people cherry-pick songs. So we go, ‘Why don’t we write songs and find vehicles to get one, two or four songs to ten million people rather than eleven songs to a hundred thousand people. That’s how we’re thinking. I don’t know if it’s right or wrong, but that’s how we’re thinking.”

MÖTLEY CRÜE in 2012 released a brand new song called “Sex” to coincide with the launch of the band’s North American co-headlining tour with KISS.

Written when the group was together during their residency in Las Vegas in February 2012, “Sex” was the first studio track from the CRÜE since their June 2008 release of “Saints Of Los Angeles”. The song was recorded at MÖTLEY CRÜE drummer Tommy Lee‘s studio called The Atrium in Calabasas, California.
