SIXX:A.M. Has Recorded Four New Songs; Greatest-Hits Collection On The Way

SIXX:A.M. has recorded four new songs, bassist Nikki Sixx has revealed.

The band, which also features guitarist DJ Ashba, singer James Michael and drummer Dustin Steinke, hasn't released any new music in two years and has been on hiatus since 2017. Ashba and Michael have since formed a new band, PYROMANTIC.

Sixx spoke about SIXX:A.M.'s future plans while promoting the upcoming MÖTLEY CRÜE biopic, "The Dirt", and discussing the long-awaited Broadway adaptation of his memoir, "The Heroin Diaries".

"I've just done four new songs with SIXX:A.M.," Nikki told BUILD Series in a new interview (see video below). "Really magical. I think we're gonna go in and record another song as well. We have a greatest-hits [collection coming out] that's gonna tie in to the musical. And if there is time, maybe, for SIXX:A.M., we might go out and do — I don't know — a couple of weeks', three weeks' worth of shows, maybe do festivals next year or something."

Sixx, who is expecting a baby girl with his wife Courtney Bingham, admitted that he is "kind of starting to get that itch" to hit the road again.

"I opened my closet about three months ago — the closet that you have, or the part of the closet where you put stuff you just… you don't know what to do with it — and I opened it, and my stage boots fell out," he said. "And I just was, like, 'Oh, there you are.'

"But I've got so much going on," he explained. "It's very important to me to be in the moment, focused on my wife and this baby that's coming. Because I missed a lot being on the road. And that's one of my regrets, and it's hard when you're in a successful and, and people just keep going, 'Just one more week. One more month.' And next thing you know, you've missed a birthday, you've missed Easter, you've missed stuff. So I really have been home for the last few years really focusing on my kids and my family. And that means so much to me, because, if you know me, I didn't have a good family. It's important to me. But I might slip my ass in those leather pants soon."

A music video for an as-yet-undisclosed new SIXX:A.M. song was filmed in December.

When "The Heroin Diaries" was published, it was accompanied by a soundtrack by SIXX:A.M. The 13 tracks on the record each correspond to one month of Sixx's supposed diary, which he kept from 1986 to 1987 and formed the basis for the autobiography.

SIXX:A.M. embarked on its first North American headlining tour in support of the band's third album, "Modern Vintage", in 2015.

The 10th-anniversary editions of SIXX:A.M.'s "The Heroin Diaries Soundtrack" was made available in October 2017.

SIXX:A.M.'s latest album, "Vol. 2, Prayers For The Blessed", was released in November 2016 via Eleven Seven Music. The disc was written and recorded at the same time as "Vol. 1, Prayers For The Damned", released earlier that same year, and it acted as a companion piece to the first chapter.
