The 90s’ glam-rock legends Mötley Crüe have sold their music catalog, which they had since the nineties, to BMG.
This deal between the band and the company is the largest single catalog acquisition for BMG since it was founded in 2008. This agreement includes the band’s entire recorded output spanning their 40-year career, totaling nine studio albums from their 1981 debut, Too Fast For Love, through the latest release in 2008 Saints of Los Angeles, as well as several live albums and compilation sets. It comes as the band are on a new high after Netflix biopic The dirt converted a new generation of fans.
In a statement, Mötley Crüe said “It feels amazing to be collaborating with our new partners at BMG. Their extensive track record of success in Rock made them the perfect home to continue preserving and growing our musical legacy, ensuring we always stay at The Top.”
In June 2022, Mötley Crüe will kick off their 30+ date headlining US stadium tour (which was postponed due to Covid-19 pandemic), marking the band’s return to stage for their first major concert since 2015.
