Universal Music has inked an exclusive deal with Motley Crue to re-release the group's catalog in the U.S., including many bonus tracks, and will also release two DVDs. Following the catalog reissues, Universal will release the film of the group's autobiography, The Dirt, as well as future Motley Crue albums.
The reissues will begin April 1st, on Universal subsidiary Hip-O Records, with reissues of the band's 1998 Greatest Hits CD, eight studio albums, a live album, a rarities compilation, and two DVD home-video compilations. Eight of the 11 albums will be augmented with bonus tracks that have previously only appeared on Japanese editions.

The albums slated for an April 1st release are Too Fast for Love (1981), Shout at the Devil (1983), Theater of Pain (1985), Girls, Girls, Girls (1987), Dr. Feelgood (1989), Motley Crue (1994), Generation Swine (1997), Greatest Hits (1998), Live: Entertainment or Death (1999), Supersonic and Demonic Relics (1999), and New Tattoo (2000).
The reissued DVDs, hitting stores the same day, are VH1 Behind the Music: Motley Crue and Lewd, Crued, and Tattooed, a concert video originally released in 2001.
