Motley Crue’s Nikki Sixx to work with boy band 5 Seconds of Summer

The rocker revealed he will be writing lyrics with the Australian punk-pop group

Motley Crue‘s Nikki Sixx is set to work with boy band 5 Seconds of Summer.

On Twitter, the bassist of the veteran hard rock band said writing sessions with the group were soon set to take place. “Congrats @5sos on your award Nice Crüe shirt too.See yah next week for some lyric writing.@iHeartRadio #iHeartAwards,” he wrote. 5 Seconds of Summer were in attendance at yesterday’s (March 29) iHeartRadio Music Awards at the Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles, where they picked up the award for Best Fan Army.

Meanwhile, Motley Crue are currently in the middle of an 18-month farewell tour that will mark the end of the group after 24 years. The tour will culminate with a New Year’s Eve show at The Staples Centre in Los Angeles and, if Alice Cooper has his way, the band’s deaths.

During a recent interview with Australian classic rock radio station Triple M, Cooper – who has been serving as an opening act – revealed he has offered to chop off the band’s heads as a finale.

“They finish up in the United States on New Year’s, and that’s their last gig,” said the rock frontman, who has been known to include guillotines in his live shows. “I told them, ‘Why don’t you let me kill you onstage? That finishes everything.’ Four guillotines, floomp! Done!”
