Motley Crue singer Vince Neil spoke about the band’s secret club show in London, England under the pseudonym Dogs of War in a brand new interview with The Music Universe conducted this past Thursday (June 29).
“Well, we went in the studio not too long ago — about six months ago — and recorded three new songs. And one of ’em is called ‘Dogs Of War’. And we’re doing a show tomorrow night at a club here in London [under the name] Dogs Of War. And I guess word got out, ’cause it sold out in less than a minute. So it was pretty cool.”
Circling back to the Crue recording sessions with longtime producer Bob Rock, Neil said: “It’s neat. There’s three brand new Motley Crue songs. And we’re gonna film it tomorrow night. I hope people like it.”
Asked what inspired him and his Motley Crue bandmates to head back to the studio, Vince said: “Well, we’ve written the songs, and then we had Bob Rock, our producer, come in and take a listen to ’em too. We got some studio time and went in and recorded. I didn’t record with the band, ’cause I’m in Nashville, and they’re in L.A. They recorded the tracks in Nashville, and then I did like a Zoom call with the producer for three days. And I did all the songs. And they turned out really well. One of them is the Beastie Boys song ‘Fight For Your Right’… That turned out really cool.”
Pressed about whether the three new songs might be a precursor to a new full-length album, Neil said: “I don’t know if we’re gonna do a whole album or not. We’ll see how these songs go first.”
Later in the chat, Vince talked about Motley Crue’s plans for the coming months, saying” “We’re gonna finish 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 gonna go back in the studio for a couple of more songs. And then we will announce a new stadium tour for next summer. And we’re not sure who’s gonna be on it, but there’ll be another tour.”
Motley Crue’s concert at the Underworld saw Neil and his bandmates premiere their cover of Beastie Boys “(You Gotta) Fight For Your Right (To Party!)”.
