Chicago's Electro-Metal Marazene Magazine will release their edgy electronic, whiskey, sex-fueled rendition of the Motley Crue classic as a digital single on March 22, 2011. An audio sample has been posted below and the cover art has been posted on the bands Official website.

Two other new song titles - "Welcome To Your Holiday" and "The Very Sad Fate Of Miss Desdemona Antoinette Marceaux", have previously been announced and are expected to be key tracks on the as yet untitled collection. A release date for the new album is forthcoming.
