NIKKI SIXX Pens Powerful Los Angeles Times Op-Ed On His Addiction Struggles And Modern Opioid Crisis

Nikki Sixx has partnered with the Los Angeles Times in an op-ed taking on America's opioid epidemic from a recovering addict's perspective. A digital version of the article can be found here.

Following ten years of advocating for addicts, Sixx will reissue his New York Times best-selling novel, "The Heroin Diaries", with two new, updated chapters on October 24 via Gallery Books/Simon & Schuster. Additionally, SIXX:A.M. will release a tenth-anniversary edition of "The Heroin Diaries Soundtrack" in multiple formats (including digital album, CD, CD/DVD and vinyl LP) via Eleven Seven Music on October 27, featuring three newly reimagined tracks — including "Life Is Beautiful". Exclusive preorders are available exclusively on PledgeMusic.

Sixx's first ever photography gallery, in collaboration with Leica Camera, dubbed "Conversations With Angels", opens on October 4 in Los Angeles. Proceeds from all sales of Sixx's gallery exhibits depicting homelessness will benefit Covenant House California, Los Angeles to raise funds for a photography room and program for Covenant House residents.
