As previously reported, Motley Crue's new single, "If I Die Tomorrow" (Island/IDJMG) has been posted online in streaming audio at AOL.com. Listen to it at this location. Several brand new band photos have been posted at Launch.

Motley Crue's press conference will reportedly be held Monday (Dec. 6) in front of the Whisky A Go Go on the Sunset Strip, the historic rock club where Crue got their start in the early 1980s. VH1 will cover the announcement live and the Strip will be shut down. The press conference will reportedly be followed by the band's performance at The Palladium in Hollywood, CA later that night and an appearance as presenters (see next week's TV Guide ad) at the 2004 Billboard Music Awards on Dec. 8 at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas. The event will be broadcast live on Fox starting at 8:00 p.m EST.

Motley Crue have set "Red, White and Crüe" as the title of their upcoming greatest-hits collection, due on February 1, 2005 via the Hippo/Motley/UTV imprint. The set is expected to include "If I Die Tomorrow", which was recorded recently with the band's original lineup of Vince Neil (vocals), Nikki Sixx (bass), Tommy Lee (drums) and Mick Mars (guitar).

In addition to the greatest-hits CD, Motley Crue will be releasing their first-ever DVD featuring the band's four original members. Plans also exist for an "all-star" tribute album to Motley Crue, with a target release date of September 2005. Also in the works is a soundtrack to "The Dirt", the forthcoming Paramount film based on the best-selling autobiography of Motley Crue.
