The Crue penned the tune during their famed Las Vegas residency, which saw them commandeer Sin City for a few weeks in February. The band recorded ‘Sex’ at The Atrium, which is drummer Tommy Lee‘s studio compound in Calabasas, California. Upon completion of the song last spring, bassist Nikki Sixx proclaimed, “It sounds very much like it’s off of the first record.” If he’s serious about the song’s similarity to the earliest Crue tunes, then hard rock fans are going to be stoked on ‘Sex.’
The song arrives just in time for The Tour, which the Crue will embark on alongside Kiss in one of the most hotly anticipated treks of 2012.
‘Sex’ is the first taste of new Crue since 2008′s ‘Saints of Los Angeles.’
