James Michael, who is a member of MTLEY CRE bassist Nikki Sixx's SIXX: A.M. musical project, has been "locked away in the studio for the last couple months producing the new MTLEY CRE record," the first full-length recording by the original lineup in more than a decade. According to James, "it is truly incredible! The songs are stellar and the band is at the top of their game, rocking harder than ever. I get chills every morning when I step into the studio and hear playback on what we did the night before. I am so proud of this record. You're going to FUCKING LOVE IT!!!!"Sixx wrote at his personal blog a couple of days ago, "I fucking love this new MTLEY CRE album. Tommy's [Lee, drums] kickin' ass, Vince [Neil, vocals] sounds insane and [Mick] Mars is shredding on guitars. It doesn't feel like one song is better or worse than any other. It feels so good to be excited about something you've worked on so hard... I'm so excited for you all to hear it." The new CRE album, "The Dirt", named after the band's memoir of a few years back, is tentatively due out on July 8, with a world tour slated to commence around the same time. SIXX: A.M. recently postponed a planned spring tour due to "unforeseen circumstances" and "will most likely hit the road in the summer of 2008." The SIXX: A.M. album serves as the "soundtrack" to Sixx's memoir, "The Heroin Diaries: A Year in the Life of a Shattered Rock Star".
