SIXX: A.M.'s JAMES MICHAEL, DJ ASHBA On UK's TeamRock Radio: Interview, Acoustic Performance (Audio)

James Michael and DJ Ashba of SIXX: A.M. recently took part in an interview and acoustic performance on the TeamRock Radio "Breakfast Show" in the United Kingdom. They talk to comedian and Metal Hammer journalist Stephen Hill about making the new SIXX: A.M. album, "Modern Vintage", with bandmate Nikki Sixx, the future of the band once MÖTLEY CRÜE has officially disbanded, and they perform live acoustic versions of "Stars" and the new single, "Gotta Get It Right". You can listen to it using the SoundCloud widget below.

SIXX: A.M.'s third album, "Modern Vintage", will be released on October 7 via Eleven Seven Music.

Said Sixx: "Like our favorite bands from the 1970s, SIXX: A.M. is rooted in songwriting, musicianship and lyrics — three core elements that helped to define that era. SIXX: A.M. has taken even more pages from this book on 'Gotta Get It Right' and the rest of 'Modern Vintage', having hopefully created a record that demands to be discovered again and again."

Added Michael, who also produced "Modern Vintage": "On the first two albums, SIXX: A.M. established a musical freedom that few bands get to enjoy. 'Gotta Get It Right' is clearly a birth child of that creative freedom and an exciting next step for us as our goal was to create something which confounds both expectation and categorization." Ashba adds: "'Gotta Get it Right' is a great example of how SIXX: A.M. has set out to celebrate the music that has influenced us over the years and we truly feel we've made a genre-defying album with 'Modern Vintage'."
