NIKKI SIXX Says New MTLEY CRE Album Has 'Dr. Feelgood', 'Girls Girls Girls' Vibe

MTLEY CRE bassist Nikki Sixx has told Rolling Stone magazine that the band's upcoming ninth album, "The Dirt", "has the vibe of 'Dr. Feelgood', 'Girls Girls Girls' and 'Shout at the Devil'. There's also a lot of humor because, let's face it, were ridiculously funny."

A 30-second snippet of a new MTLEY CRE song called "Saints of Los Angeles" surfaced online last week, with the clip available at YouTube and other sites. The track will most likely appear on "The Dirt", due out on July 8. The CD will be the first all-new CRE album since 2000 and the first in more than a decade to feature all four original members. The title of the record is taken from the band's 2002 memoir of the same name. A single is expected to arrive at radio stations sometime within the next few weeks.

MTLEY CRE is scheduled to make what's been billed as a "colossal" announcement on April 15 in Los Angeles. Although management has denied reports that the group will be unveiling a festival-type "Cruefest" tour, it did confirm that up to two dozen other acts will be involved.

Some of the groups potentially participating include BUCKCHERRY, PAPA ROACH, DROWNING POOL, CHEVELLE, SHINEDOWN, PUDDLE OF MUDD and Nikki Sixx's side project, SIXX: A.M.

A Blu-ray Disc version of "Carnival of Sins", a concert document filmed on the CRE's 2004/2005 reunion tour, arrives on April 29.
