"It's neat," Neil says of the material the band newly recorded with Rock, noting that there are "three brand new Motley Crue songs."
The Motley Crue vocalist continues, "We went in the studio not too long ago — about six months ago — and recorded three new songs. And one of them is called 'Dogs Of War.' And we're doing a show tomorrow night (June 30) (Editor's Note: See the setlist and footage here) at a club in London [under the name] Dogs of War. And I guess word got out because it sold out in less than a minute."
Neil explains that after Motley Crue had written the new songs, "We had Bob Rock, our producer, come in and take a listen to them, too. We got some studio time and went in and recorded."
However, Neil "didn't record with the band," the singer adds, "because I'm in Nashville, and they're in LA. They recorded the tracks in Nashville, and then I did a Zoom call with the producer for three days. And I did all the songs. And they turned really out well. One of them is the Beastie Boys' song 'Fight For Your Right'… That turned out really cool."
As for the specifics of the songs' eventual release, the Motley Crue vocalist says, "I don't know if we're going to do a whole album or not. We'll see how these songs go first."
Neil added of Motley Crue's Stadium Tour, "We're going to finish [the current dates] up. We have eight shows in the U.S. after [our current European tour with Def Leppard]. Then we go to Australia and Japan. And then we do — I think we're [returning to] the studio for a couple more songs. And then we will announce a new stadium tour for next summer. And we're not sure who's going be on it, but there'll be another tour."
