In other news, Sixx has posted the following message on the group's official web site:
"All things new were done once before. As I sit here putting together the set list for the BRIDES tour, I'm feeling excited and guilty. I've been home for four years now and I've grown roots. I'm excited about touring and I'm excited about the unknown. But I've had to bridge the conversation with my kids and wife about being gone. My son (Gunner) asked me 'How long?' I said, 'I don't know. It could be a couple months or it could be longer.' It's up to the fans. It's part of the unknown.
"I've spent most of my life on the road and my wife understands that it’s a huge part of who I am... In fact, it was her who told me its time to go do this… God bless her..
"All things old are new once again. So we go into rehearsal this week…. We're getting the set together, the amps and guitars tuned up (cleaned up even)….cleaning up is dirty work…
"As far as songs live… We will play the whole album live (duh)… plus we have unreleased BRIDES songs were gonna play too… we took it to heart what you all wanna hear from (the GUNS and CRÜE era) and it seems that its your wish for us to play old stuff.. not even the hits…so we're gonna work up a bunch of songs and see how it sounds.. Thanks for your input…
"Who's on first? We have to make a decision on who’s our support. There's a lot of new blood out there and some of these bands are in fucking sane…"
