Sixx: AM Begin Work On Third Album
According to, Sixx: A.M. - the band consisting of Nikki Sixx (also of Mtley Cre), DJ Ashba (also of Guns N' Roses) and James Michael - has begun writing material for its third album. According to Sixx, the CD will "probably [be] a 2013 release considering the body of work we're setting as a goal." "7", the latest EP from Sixx: A.M., came out last month and sold around 2,700 copies in the United States in its first week of release. The effort contains acoustic versions of songs from the group's first two albums - 2007's "The Heroin Diaries" soundtrack and 2011's "This Is Gonna Hurt". Sixx: A.M. will be "doing a proper video" for its next single soon, according to Sixx. In addition, "tour options keep coming, but we haven't found the right fit yet to open up the conversations," Nikki writes on his Facebook page. Sixx: A.M. recently revealed plans to film a video for the song "Skin" in the Los Angeles area. The band put out a casting call for people whom the song has affected personally because of their own scars - whether physical or under the surface. "Skin" comes off Sixx: A.M.'s sophomore album, "This Is Gonna Hurt", which has sold around 95,000 copies since its May 2011 release. Released on May 3, 2011, the 11-track CD is a companion piece to Sixx's "THis Is Gonna Hurt: Music, Photography And Life Through The Distorted Lens Of Nikki Sixx" book, a follow-up to his New York Times bestseller, "The Heroin Diaries". "This Is Gonna Hurt" is part photo, part journal - but all Nikki Sixx. It is a collection of compelling snapshots and stories that capture the rage, love, optimism, darkness, and determination that shape his work. Told with the raw authenticity that defined his New York Times bestseller "The Heroin Diaries", "This Is Gonna Hurt" chronicles Sixx's experience, from references to his early years filled with toxic waste to his success with Mtley Cre, his death from an OD and rebirth to his addictions to music, photography, and love along with the journey of photographing these images over the past couple of years. The "This Is Gonna Hurt" album as a whole deals with many raw, human issues. Nikki talks about the CD as "pulling back the veil on your internal truth," saying, "We are who we are... Either poisonous and evil or honest and willing... Willing to make a difference... I haven't led the life of a saint nor do I intend on it now." The album - produced entirely by James Michael with writing credits going to Sixx, Michael, Ashba and band friends John William Lowrey and Blair Daly - dives deep into meandering emotions through epic melodies. The resulting work is a deep, dark and intoxicatingly addictive mix of sounds and passion.
