bassist Nikki Sixx
recently gave an update on the new Sixx:A.M.
record, revealing that things seem to be cooking up better than expected.
As Sixx himself put it via official Facebook
page, the "album is coming together fast"
and it's only a matter of time until he starts considering the record's title.
"Writing Sixx:A.M. lyrics today at home,"
the bassist kicked off with an accompanying photo below. "Cutting bass parts tomorrow with James and DJ will be laying down his guitar parts when he returns from Canada. This album is coming together fast. Time to start thinking of an album title."
The previous reports confirmed that Sixx was looking to hire Foo Fighters
stickman Taylor Hawkins
to record several of the band's new tunes. Whether or not Hawkins took part in the recording sessions is still unknown.
As far as Motley Crue is considered, Sixx and the gang have officially confirmed they'll be calling it quits once they have the current Crue plans wrapped up. The plans include a new record, a movie, and a farewell tour.
"It's important that when you do a farewell tour that people understand that when you put a bullet in the back of the horse's head, and it goes down, it's not a plastic bullet it's a f--ing shotgun blast,"
the bassist told TheMusic.co.au
. back in March. "You know, blow its f--ing brains out, it's never coming back. It has to
[be that way]. It's the only way I can look at myself in the mirror and do a farewell tour. That's it. So when we take our final bow, it's IT. I will cry. I cry thinking about it."
The latest Sixx:A.M. studio effort, "This is Gonna Hurt
," dropped during May 2011 as the group's second release. With 30,000 units shipped in the US within the first week, it peaked at No. 10 on the Billboard 200 chart.
