NIKKI SIXX Is Working On 'Trilogy Project' For 2019 Release

Nikki Sixx is working on a "trilogy" project for a 2019 release. The MÖTLEY CRÜE bassist, who said last year that he was "unofficially retired" from touring, discussed his plans in an Instagram post. "Officially start working on a new album tomorrow as part of my trilogy project for 2019," he wrote. "Very excited to be working with a handful of different producers and artists to pull the vision that's been haunting me together."

"I love being off the road," he also tweeted. "As an artist we need to create NEW. That's why we started in the first place was to create. So excited about my trilogy project I'm working on right now."

It is not clear if Sixx's new "trilogy project" will involve any new music from SIXX:A.M., which has been on hiatus since 2017. Guitarist DJ Ashba and singer James Michael have since formed a new band, PYROMANTIC.

Asked by a fan over the weekend if he has written any new songs for SIXX:AM. or if he has closed that door, Sixx responded: "We have a lot of cool new music coming next year."

In 2015, MÖTLEY CRÜE completed "The Final Tour", closing the book on the band's iconic career after performing a total of 164 shows in 72 markets, grossing over $100 million.

A film adaptation of the band's 2001 autobiography, "The Dirt", will premiere on Netflix in March. The soundtrack is expected to include four new songs MÖTLEY CRÜE recorded earlier this year with producer Bob Rock.

Sixx is working on the Broadway adaptation of his memoir, "The Heroin Diaries: A Year In The Life Of A Shattered Rock Star".

SIXX:A.M.'s latest double album, "Prayers For The Blessed" and "Prayers For The Damned", came out during 2016.
