It was recently announced that Mötley Crüe has entered the studio with producer Bob Rock. It has been 15 years since the band released their last studio album, that record being Saints of Los Angeles.

On his Facebook, Nikki Sixx uploaded a status where he provides some insight into what he is currently working on in the studio. He also brings up how blown away he is by Tommy Lee‘s drumming. Here is everything Sixx had to share via his post:

“I’m sure you all know how important lyrics are to me.

“Studio is a highly creative space and with us recording I thought I’d try to get a creative head start on some of these for Vince. I got one done and gonna try to wrap up the next one and show it to the guys. Bob Rock is pushing us hard and bringing out the best in us. Tommy is playing his ass off. Jesus these drums sound huge.

“Probably lay down my final bass tracks in the next few days. John is so fast I’m sure he will get all the songs done in just a few days. But then again Bob Rock loves those huge walls of guitars so it could take a moment. Gonna take a break from recording to fly to Kansas to rehearse and then play the @nfl draft show and then back to finish it all off.

“When will it come. Not sure.We haven’t thought that far down the line. Just letting the music guide us.”
