Tommy Lee’s Methods of Mayhem Request Your Input
New Loud & Proud/Roadrunner roster addition Methods of Mayhem announced today an innovative and truly “interactive” concept for an album collaboration. The Tommy Lee-fronted ensemble is inviting fans, musicians, maniacs and anyone with a great idea to help record their upcoming album. Participants will also have a chance to perform with the band at their record release show. The album, entitled Public Mayhem, is set for release in early 2010.
An excited Tommy Lee says, “This is a dream come true project where I get to play with the entire world’s creativity and add it to mine. That will produce something truly mind-blowing and amazing!!!” Producer Scott Humphrey (Mötley Crüe, Rob Zombie, The Crystal Method) elaborates, “The original Methods Of Mayhem project that we did 10 years ago was a collaboration with some of the biggest artists of the day. The Public Mayhem project is a collaboration with the entire world.”
