SIXX: A.M. Taps BLACK LABEL SOCIETY Drummer JEFF FABB For 'Modern Vintage' Album, Burbank Show

SIXX: A.M., the band featuring MÖTLEY CRÜE bassist Nikki Sixx alongside guitarist DJ Ashba and vocalist James Michael, will release its third album, "Modern Vintage", on October 7 via Eleven Seven Music. SIXX: A.M. will celebrate the CD release by playing its first full live show since 2009 the same night. The performance will take place at the iHeart Theater in Burbank, California. The show, as well as a question-and-answer session with the band about the new album, its influences and the band's future plans will be broadcast exclusively live on iHeartRadio and select Clear Channel radio stations. SIXX: A.M. is also expected to make a big announcement at the event that evening which will have fans buzzing.

Joining Sixx, Ashba and Michael for the Burbank performance will be drummer Jeff Fabb (BLACK LABEL SOCIETY, IN THIS MOMENT). Ashba told Legendary Rock Interviews about Jeff: "[He is the] same guy who played drums on the 'Modern Vintage' album. He is an incredible drummer. It was a lot of fun to work with him and we were really happy to have him on the record. He agreed to come in and do the show with us, which just makes sense."

According to Ashba, "Modern Vintage" marks the first time SIXX: A.M. has used a live drummer on one of its albums, having previously relied solely on programmed drums while in the recording studio. "It was the first album where we actually felt it was important to capture that big album vibe we were going after," he explained. "To bring in a live drummer, it really made a huge difference, you know; it gave the whole entire album and songs a new breath of fresh air, which was really cool."

As previously reported, SIXX: A.M. will sign copies of "Modern Vintage" during the group's first-ever in-store appearance on Wednesday, October 8 at Best Buy in Burbank, from 7:00 p.m. until 9:00 p.m.
