Mötley Crüe is stirring the rock scene again with hints of fresh tracks, yet their lead vocalist, Vince Neil, appears to be conspicuously absent from the creative process. Nikki Sixx, the band’s bassist, spilled the beans on his X account, revealing that he and drummer Tommy Lee are busy brewing new tunes.

It’s been a stretch since the band released their last batch of original music with the 2008 album ‘Saints Of Los Angeles’. Despite releasing several live albums since, fans have been left yearning for new material.

In his latest update, Sixx omitted any mention of Neil’s involvement, sharing:

“Crüe had a productive week – we’re crafting new songs for the summer shows. Tommy and I have hashed out an exciting setlist, and our stage setup is coming together. We’re knee-deep in planning for the new music release and locking in heaps of press. This Friday couldn’t have been better.”

Following Mick Mars‘ departure from Mötley Crüe, the band roped in John 5 as their new lead guitarist. Post-split, Mars lodged a lawsuit against the band concerning ownership disputes, also shedding light on the challenges Vince Neil has been grappling with.

Neil has faced his share of criticism over his physical condition and vocal performance. This criticism reached its zenith following a 2021 solo performance where Neil had to cut a song short due to vocal difficulties, prompting him to momentarily step back from performing. However, Neil didn’t stay down for long and soon announced new tour dates. Reflecting on Neil’s vocal challenges, Mars commented:

“The road can be unforgiving for all of us. It’s somewhat like a family dynamic – sometimes there’s discord, sometimes reconciliation. That’s just the nature of it.”

The exact details of Neil’s current standing with the band remain unclear, but it’s evident that Sixx and Lee are in sync and moving forward with their creative endeavors.
