NIKKI SIXX Looking Forward To MTLEY CRE's First Gig In A Year

MTLEY CRE will play its first show in a year later today (Sunday, June 22) when it headlines the second day of the Heavy MTL festival in Montral, Canada. Bassist Nikki Sixx has checked in with the following update:

"Sitting here in my hotel room in Montral, Canada [on Saturday, June 21]. Just got in from Los Angeles. I was thinking how MTLEY hasn't played a show together in awhile. Yes, we've played our press conference, recorded the new album, and, of course, just got done rehearsing for this upcoming tour, but there is there is always those first-gig mishaps, and I guess it's always a bit nerve-racking until you get one under your belt. So tomorrow seems like a million years from now; just get me on stage already

"Hey, I don't know if any of you saw us [Friday] night on [CNN's longest-running interview program] 'Larry King Live' or not, but it was a blast His show was one of those things on my list of things to do so check off another goal Behind the scenes, he is a really funny, nice guy Sometimes you meet people who exceed your expectations. Thanks, Larry

"Tuesday, our album comes out and we're gonna be on [CBS'] 'The Late Show with David Letterman' If I was you, I wouldn't miss this one enough said."

MTLEY CRE's new album, "Saints of Los Angeles", is available for streaming in in its entirety at

Due on June 24, the album is loosely based on the band's memoir, "The Dirt", which was published in 2001. The CD will be the first to feature all four original members of the CRE since 1997's "Generation Swine".

"Cre Fest" will kick off on July 1 in West Palm Beach, Florida, hitting 40 cities before wrapping up in late August.
