Were you hoping that the Obama presidency would usher in a new era where Methods Of Mayhem—Tommy Lee’s clothing-optional rap-rock side project—felt OK about returning to the public sphere? Well, one person out there who said “yes,” today is your lucky day, as Lee has announced that there will be a follow-up to the group’s 1999 self-titled debut out sometime later this year. No word on whether Lee et al. will forego the traditional CD route and just release their new music as the backing for a tawdry celebrity sex tape yet. [Reuters]
