The Pulse of Radio reports that MÖTLEY CRÜE's upcoming press conference on April 15 in Los Angeles will be streamed live on the web and broadcast live on the Fuse cable music channel, according to sources at the band's management company. The source indicated that the webcast will be handled by "Microsoft," although it wasn't clear whether that meant MSN.com. The event is tentatively set to begin at 7 p.m. ET and will include what's being billed as a "colossal" announcement. Although management has denied reports that the group will be unveiling a festival-type "Cruefest" tour, it did confirm that up to two dozen other acts will be involved.

Some of the groups potentially participating include BUCKCHERRY, PAPA ROACH, DROWNING POOL, and CRÜE bassist Nikki Sixx's side project, SIXX: A.M.

MÖTLEY CRÜE singer Vince Neil announced from the stage Thursday night (April 3) during his performance in downtown West Palm Beach, Florida at the free weekly Clematis By Night party that CRÜE will kick off its upcoming tour at the Cruzan Amphitheatre in West Palm Beach.

A 30-second snippet of a new MÖTLEY CRÜE song called "Saints of Los Angeles" surfaced online last week. The track will most likely appear on the band's upcoming new album, "The Dirt", due out on July 8. The title of the record is taken from the band's 2002 memoir of the same name. A single is expected to arrive at radio stations sometime within the next few weeks.

The CD will be the first all-new CRÜE album since 2000 and the first in more than a decade to feature all four original members. Sixx told RollingStone.com this week that the new CD "has the vibe of (classic CRÜE albums) 'Dr. Feelgood', 'Girls, Girls, Girls' and 'Shout at the Devil'," adding, "There's also a lot of humor because, let's face it, we're ridiculously funny."
