BRIDES OF DESTRUCTION, the new band featuring MÖTLEY CRÜE bassist Nikki Sixx, L.A. GUNS guitarist Tracii Guns, vocalist London LeGrand, and drummer Scot Coogan (ex-PAUL GILBERT, ONI LOGAN/ROWAN ROBERTSON, SINÉAD O'CONNOR), appear to be on the verge of splitting up as a result of their inability to land an American and European licensing deal for their debut album, according to a recent online posting by Guns.
"[Producer] Steve Thompson is set to mix the 11 songs we have already recorded," he explained. "The album will be delivered [to Universal Records] in Japan only by September 17th. There are only plans to promote the album in Japan and there are no plans to tour. Apparently, we were asking for way too much money for the American and European license and it turned a lot of people off. That's when everything came to a screeching halt. So unless a magical deal comes from out of a monkey's ass, or a label, this record will never see the light of day outside of Japan."
In a later posting Guns offered an update on the situation, saying "I just talked to Nikki. After we deliver to Japan, we will try to get at least license or distribution. At that point we will pickup where we left off. So BRIDES is not over, it's just not a full-blown band at this point until we need be somewhere, So I will put something new together to occupy my time until the CD comes out.... [Nikki] said if we had the right deal right now... that's pretty much all he would be putting his energy on... he loves the band, he loves the support from the rockers and wishes things were different so, it's not all negative just kinda kinky."
