Mick Mars has finally revealed the title of his upcoming debut solo LP
MÖTLEY CRÜE guitarist Mick Mars recently spoke with Rolling Stone and revealed that he is seeking out a record label to release his upcoming debut solo album, “Another Side Of Mars”. Some of the song titles set to appear on the LP, which is described by Rolling Stone writer Andy Greene as “darker and more aggressive than anything in the MÖTLEY CRÜE catalog,” include such tracks as “Broken On The Inside”, “Alone”, “Lonely In Your Grave”, “Loyal To The Lie”, “Decay”, “Fear”, “Memories” and “Erased”.
Mars added that he won’t be hitting the road in support of the upcoming album, saying: “I’m done touring. If somebody really, really wants a one-off, or a couple of nights, I would probably do it. But all that travel stuff and planes … I’m way over it.”
Mick also revealed that he has sold his entire share of the publishing rights to the MÖTLEY CRÜE catalog. “The deal was just finalized,” he tells Rolling Stone. “Now I can relax and don’t have to worry about anything, since, like I said, I’m probably just going to live another seven or eight years.”
The 71-year-old Mars continued: “I’m old enough, man. I’m not going to live to be 85 or 90, I just have a feeling. I don’t want to, either. My brain doesn’t want this ugly-ass body that’s all fucked up to keep going. I wish I could just take the information out of my brain, put it on a chip and into somebody else, or a robot. There’s still a lot of stuff going on up there.”
Mick Mars‘ solo material has been a work in progress for the past seven years with a number of the record’s early sessions being helmed by retired producer Michael Wagener (OZZY OSBOURNE, ACCEPT, WARRANT, SKID ROW) at Blackbird Studio in Nashville.
Back in August 2021, KORN drummer Ray Luzier confirmed that he makes an appearance on Mick‘s solo album. Earlier this month, former ACCEPT bassist Peter Baltes also said he is featured on the record.
