Record label BMG has announced that it has acquired the entire recorded catalog of Mötley Crüe.
BMG said the deal is the largest single catalog acquisition since the global music company was founded in 2008.
The agreement includes the iconic band’s entire recorded output spanning their 40-year career totaling 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.
It comes as the band are on a new high after Netflix biopic The Dirt converted a new generation of fans with an astonishing 92 percent score on Rotten Tomatoes for the ‘warts ‘n’ all’ movie.
“It feels amazing to be collaborating with our new partners at BMG. Their extensive track record of success in Rock made them the perfect home to continue preserving and growing our musical legacy, ensuring we always stay at The Top,” Mötley Crüe said in a statement.
Mötley Crüe’s manager Allen Kovac added, “After working side by side with BMG for well over a decade, the relationship we have developed and success we’ve accomplished over the years made this a very easy transition to entrust with this treasured Rock catalog”.
In June 2022, Mötley Crüe will kick off their previously postponed U.S. stadium tour, marking the group’s return to the stage for their first major concert run since 2015.
BMG said its global catalog team will embark on its plan to re-promote the heavy metal band’s work beginning in 2022.
