Mötley Crüe have signed with Big Machine Records, and announced they will release the single “Dogs of War” on April 26.

Mötley Crüe shared a statement and acknowledged Big Machine CEO Scott Borchetta: “We are thrilled to announce the forthcoming release of our new music through Big Machine Records. Scott’s been a friend and supporter of the band for a long time, and we loved collaborating on the Nashville Outlaws album in 2014. We’re very happy to know our new music will be in the best of hands with Scott and his exceptional team at Big Machine.”

Lead singer Vince Neil told Loudersound: “It’s a great match for us. We’re good friends with [Big Machine founder/CEO] Scott Borchetta, who put together the ‘Nashville Outlaws’ album back in 2014. His company just knows radio, how to get it out there, how to get the right people listening.”

Said Borchetta: “Mötley Crüe on Big Machine! Growing up in Southern California, I was in Hollywood when these new sheriffs showed up and took over the city. It was loud. It was powerful. It was game-changing. Nikki, and Tommy, along with new guitarist John 5, have reignited the flame with ferocious new Crüe music. Fans will unite… SHOUT!”
