Motley Crue Sex Toys to Arrive in September
Motley Crue may have no longer be a touring entity, but there's still plenty of buzz about the legendary rock group — literally! That's right, Lovehoney (in a deal brokered by Global Merchandising Services) will be issuing a Motley Crue line of signature vibrators, set to arrive this September.
The set will include four mid-sized vibrators and four mini vibrators decorated with typography (seen below) from albums like Girls, Girls, Girls and Shout at the Devil with the pentagram behind the band's logo. One boasts the black and white "Dr. Feelgod" scrawl while both sizes are represented with a skull with an arched 'Motley" at the top and a curved 'Crue' at the bottom.
“The eight eye-catching vibes capture the style and sex appeal of the band perfectly and deliver the power and pleasure you’d expect from ‘The World’s Most Notorious Rock Band’," Lovehoney sales manager Sabrina Earnshaw stated. “The toys are targeted predominantly at rock fans, but even those unfamiliar with the band are bound to enjoy them just as much thanks to the high quality, intense power and gorgeous designs.”
In other news, earlier this month Downtown Music acquired Nikki Sixx's Motley Crue song catalog. The deal also includes a neighboring rights agreement, which will see that Downtown administer all of Sixx's compositions outside of Crue, including Sixx: A.M., who released Prayers for the Damned, Vol. 1, in April of this year.
Commenting on the new deal, Sixx stated (via All Access), "Moving from an old-school publisher with millions of songs to a creative, technology-driven shop like Downtown was smart business. We've had an incredible seven years together and I'm thrilled to continue to have them as my partners."
Echoing these sentiments was Downtown COO and General Counsel Andrew Bergman, who added, "As one of Downtown's earliest administration clients, Nikki gave our team an opportunity to prove what a modern music publisher can bring to the table. We are honored that he's now selected Downtown to manage his Motley Crue catalog for the long-term and continue our very productive relationship together."
Sixx: A.M. will be on the road opening for Five Finger Death Punch on a Canadian run in September followed by a monthlong U.S. trek in October with FFDP and Shinedown. Head to our 2016 Guide to Rock + Metal Tours to see a full list of dates.
