More Info:

Saints of Los Angeles is the first to feature the original Crue lineup since 1997's Generation Swine. Bassist Nikki Sixx says,"I think it's one of the best Motley Crue albums that we've made."


''Saints of Los Angeles'' is the ninth studio album by the American hard rock band Mötley Crüe, released on June 24, 2008. It is the band's first studio album in eight years, and the first to feature the band's classic line-up since ''Generation Swine''. Bassist Nikki Sixx stated in his blog that he believes the band are "on to some of the better songs [they've] had in years".

A tentative title for the album was ''The Dirt'', however this was eventually scrapped. Nikki Sixx notes that: "the album is loosely based on ''The Dirt''. Each song is like a mini-story, and you can plug it into the book. Some of it's funny, some of it's serious and in-your-face. It's like a typical, successful Mötley Crüe record."

''Saints of Los Angeles'' debuted at #4 on the ''Billboard'' album charts, selling about 99,000 copies in its first week of release. It also debuted at #14 on the Australian ARIA album charts, #5 in Sweden, #3 in Canada, #47 in Italy, and #9 in Finland (although it climbed to #6 in its second week).

Though the band's first single, the title track "Saints of Los Angeles", was their second highest charting single in the US mainstream rock charts ever, peaking at number 5, subsequent singles fared less well. "Motherfucker of the Year" peaked at number 29 and "White Trash Circus" peaked at number 37 on mainstream rock charts. - Wikipedia

While we wait (and wait) for the film version of The Dirt, the classic lineup reunites with their first album of new material in forever. Even though their upcoming summer Crue Fest probably won't yield another book's worth of unbelievable anecdotes, at least Saints of Los Angeles should produce some adequate retro glam, especially if the strutting title track is any indication. Why not shout at the devil one last time?
