MÖTLEY CRÜE CONTINUE 40TH ANNIVERSARY CELEBRATIONS WITH DIGITAL REMASTER OF “SHOUT AT THE DEVIL”
Mötley Crüe continues its 40th anniversary celebration with the release of the digital remaster of its iconic album Shout At The Devil. Hits such as Looks That Kill, Too Young To Fall In Love and title track Shout At The Devil are amplified on this version of the band’s breakthrough album. Selling over 200,000 copies in the first two weeks, Shout At The Devil established the band as one of the top-selling rock acts of the 1980s.
Released in September 1983, the band’s second studio album reached Number 17 on the Billboard 200. With two of its singles charting on the Billboard Hot 100, Shout At The Devil also featured a cover of The Beatles‘ 1968 song Helter Skelter. Moving over four million copies in the U.S., the album is now certified quadruple platinum in the U.S., triple platinum in Canada and gold in Australia. Most recently, Rolling Stone magazine ranked the album Number 44 in its list of “The 100 Greatest Metal Albums Of All Time” in 2017.
Mötley Crüe‘s 40th anniversary celebrations will culminate with the digital remaster of their album Too Fast For Love, arriving exactly 40 years to the original release date of November 10th, 1981. Their debut album was recorded at Hit City West Studios and made available via their own label Leathür Records. Eventually reaching platinum status in the U.S. and charting on the Billboard 200, the album was ranked Number 22 on Rolling Stone’s “The 100 Greatest Metal Albums Of All Time.”
The new remasters join the recently released digital remasters of Dr. Feelgood, Girls, Girls, Girls and Theatre Of Pain, which kicked off the band’s 40th-anniversary celebrations earlier this year.
