After 10 years, Methods of Mayhem are BACK and they’re offering the first track off their upcoming album A Public Disservice Announcement for free download!
Set for a September 21st release, A Public Disservice Announcement features Tommy Lee collaborating with the world. Starting in October of 2009, Lee and his team — including producer Scott Humphrey, singer-guitarist J3 amongst others — wrote and recorded songs for the new album, then made the core components of each available for download on thepublicrecord.com to anyone anywhere who wished to add their playing or otherwise re-interpret the music.
Lee listened to every single submission that was uploaded, chose the best, and integrated the actual audio tracks into the album’s final cuts to create the finished product that is A Public Disservice Announcement.

Tommy Lee is ready for a little mayhem — and not just with Motley Crue.
The rock drummer — who with his bandmates kicks off the group’s Saints of Los Angeles tour January 31 in Indio, California — told Billboard he has started work on his second Methods of Mayhem album, following up his side project’s platinum 1999 debut.
DJ Aero and guitarist Kai Marcus are still onboard, and Lee’s producing partner Scott Humphrey “is starting to get involved” as the songs are formulating. “We’re going to start tracking as soon as Motley is done (touring) at the end of March, and hopefully I’ll have it ready by April/May and done by the top of June,” Lee said.
Lee said he wouldn’t mind having Methods of Mayhem on the Crue Fest II tour, which is slated to begin in July, “like (Motley Crue bassist) Nikki (Sixx) did with Sixx:A.M. last year. That’d be killer.”
As for the rest of the Crue Fest II lineup, Lee said it’s still being discussed. “There’s offers going around all over the place,” he said. “We actually talked about that a little. Rob Zombie’s name came up. Godsmack. Alice Cooper. I’d like to switch it up, add a little bit more variety this year. I think it’d be fun to inject that.”
