Mötley Crüe are working on new music, bassist Nikki Sixx confirmed on Twitter. The group – which now includes guitarist John 5 – are planning to hit the studio next week to record some of the material. The band is currently in-between legs of their World Tour with Def Leppard.

“We are writing,” Sixx said on Twitter. “The creative process of songwriting has always been the heartbeat of our band. We’re gonna go in the big studio next week and record a few off the floor and see where it goes. We don’t have a definitive plan at this point. Just letting the songs guide us.”

Mötley Crüe’s last studio album was 2008’s Saints of Los Angeles.

The band’s World Tour resumes on May 22 with a show in Sheffield, UK. Last month, original guitarist and founding member Mick Mars retired from touring. For the global run, the Crüe enlisted John 5 to handling guitar duties on the road. Now, at appears as though John 5 will be recording with the band as well.
