MÖTLEY CRÜE drummer Tommy Lee's METHODS OF MAYHEM project has inked a worldwide deal with Loud & Proud Records, a Roadrunner Records imprint focusing on established artists. Roadrunner will release the band's sophomore album in early 2010.

Commented Lee: "I'm so f@&*ing pumped!! I've signed with my friends at Roadrunner... What a perfect home for my second METHODS OF MAYHEM record. We're about to do what no team has ever done before... Buckle up and hang on, kids!"

Tommy told Billboard in January 2009 that DJ Aero and guitarist Kai Marcus are still onboard for METHODS OF MAYHEM's as-yet-untitled new effort, and Lee's producing partner Scott Humphrey is also said to be involved.

In a recent interview with, drummer Will Hunt (EVANESCENCE, STATIC-X, DARK NEW DAY, TOMMY LEE) — who played on the new METHODS OF MAYHEM CD — stated about the album, "People are gonna be very surprised when they hear that record. It's very different than anything [Tommy's] done. It's still very cool, there's some very melodic, commercial stuff on it, but the bulk of the record is very heavy, grungy, DEFTONES-sounding stuff. And it's just really cool."

Lee formed METHODS OF MAYHEM in 1999 after he left MÖTLEY CRÜE. The all-star project collaboration with rapper TiLo featured input from LIMP BIZKIT's Fred Durst, THE CRYSTAL METHOD, Kid Rock, Snoop Dogg, and Mix Master Mike. After signing to MCA, METHODS OF MAYHEM issued its self-titled debut LP in late 1999.
