From the 'What were they thinking file' Roadrunner Records signs Methods of Mayhem
Methods of Mayhem have found a new home with Loud & Proud/Roadrunner Records. The star studded brainchild of Tommy Lee is currently finishing album production with producer Scott Humphrey (Rob Zombie, Nine Inch Nails, Motley Crüe). The new album will be Methods of Mayhem's first release since their 1999 self-titled debut. Album is due out worldwide in early 2010.
Lee exclaimed, "I'm so f@&*ing pumped!! I've signed with my friends at Loud & Proud / Roadrunner…what a perfect home for my second Methods of Mayhem record. We're about to do what no team has ever done before. Buckle up and hang on kids!"
"Some artists put it on cruise control once they achieve success. And then there are rock stars like Tommy Lee. He works hard, plays hard and always looks to challenge himself and his audience. His second Methods of Mayhem record is going to shake things up once again." says Tom Lipsky, President of Loud & Proud Records.
Methods of Mayhem broke onto the scene in 1999 with their self-titled debut, which went on to become RIAA Gold certified. The album featured Snoop Dog, Kid Rock and Fred Durst among others. The band was a main force of Ozzfest 2000.
Lee is currently headlining Crüefest II with his band Motley Crüe.
