BMG reissuing five classic Mötley Crüe albums

Each one is available July 1st

BMG is set to reissue five 1980’s Mötley Crüe albums individually on July 1st. 1981’s Too Fast For Love, 1983’s Shout At The Devil, 1985’s Theatre of Pain, 1987’s Girls, Girls, Girls, and 1989’s Dr. Feelgood will be reissued on digipak CD with remastered audio from 2021.

No bonus tracks appear to be included, but each will be packaged in either a shielding folder or book.

The reissue campaign is part of a new deal the group struck with the label in 2021 to acquire its entire catalog. The deal is valued at approximately $150 million, the largest single catalog acquisition since the company was founded in 2008. The agreement includes the iconic band’s entire recorded output spanning 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 Platinum-selling live albums and compilation sets.

After two summers of delays, Mötley Crüe returns to touring this summer on The Stadium Tour alongside Def Leppard, Poison and Joan Jett & The Blackhearts. Produced by Live Nation, the summer trek is set to steamroll through North America starting June 2022 with dates through September.

Twenty-five stops have sold out while amassing over one million tickets sold to eager fans wanting to see Mötley Crüe return seven years after their Cessation of Touring agreement. The band destroyed the contract following a massive surge in new audience after the huge success of their Netflix biopic The Dirt.

Last month, the iconic rockers teamed with Brewtality Coffee to introduce a new line of coffee products called Kickstart My Heart and Espresso Blend French Roast.
