Mötley Crüe fans might never again get to see the band perform, but they were pleasantly surprised to learn last month that the quartet is again together in the recording studio.

The band reconvened recently to work on four new songs to accompany the soundtrack of their band biopic, The Dirt, based on their 2001 book of the same name. 

Front man Vince Neil confirmed the news last month after several weeks of speculation surrounding photos of bassist Nikki Sixx and drummer Tommy Lee in the studio with famed producer Bob Rock

Sixx recently took to Twitter to express his excitement over the new material.

"F*** can I just say it?" Sixx tweeted. "I'm listening to the roughs of the new Mötley Crüe and it feels real and raw. Everybody is playing like mad and the songs crush. Bob Rock brought the sounds. Plus we have a surprise that will confirm that we're outta our minds."

Sixx continued, as if he'd just burst due to excitement, answering a fan question about how new music fits into a film about the band's history. 

"You can trust us these are ball-busters," the bassist and former radio host added, presumably referring to the tracks. "Everybody can relax. We're soon gonna smack you upside the head with some killer new tracks. Bob Rock is producing. It's our movie. We know what we're doing."

The Dirt had been gestating for over a decade before Netflix took over the project last year. 

While the film is in post-production, the streaming platform has yet to announce a release date.
