Blabbermouth.net reports via The Pulse of Radio that the tension in MÖTLEY CRÜE seems to have settled down as the band readies a new album. Things started heating up last year after drummer Tommy Lee quit the group because their ex-manager, Carl Stubner, demanded more money to work with him. The band subsequently sued the manager, claiming he tried to "divert revenue" from the group and promote Lee's activities while at the same time mismanaging Lee's own solo career "so as to harm the MÖTLEY CRÜE band and Lee's reputation."

Since then, they put the drama behind them and started work on a new album. Bassist Nikki Sixx tells The Pulse of Radio what went down with the ex-manager and Lee. "Everything's cool," he said. "A guy named Carl Stubner who works for Sanctuary Records did some bad stuff. He was held accountable. He's Tommy's personal manager, and Tommy was hurt about that. But the bottom line is MÖTLEY CRÜE comes first. We're a gang — not this guy who did bad stuff to MÖTLEY CRÜE. So he was sued. He settled, and I think Tommy woke up and saw the light."

MÖTLEY CRÜE's new song, called "Saints of Los Angeles", is expected to appear on the band's upcoming ninth studio album, which is due late June. The disc will be the first to feature the original CRÜE lineup in over a decade.
