Motley Crue bassist Nikki Sixx reveals new music project

Motley Cue bassist Nikki Sixx has revealed his recording plans for a new music project planned for a 2019 release.

"Officially start working on a new album tomorrow as part of my trilogy project for 2019," writes Sixx. "Very excited to be working with a handful of different producers and artists to pull the vision that's been haunting me together."

The rocker – who “unofficially” retired from the road last year – says he’s been inspired by his time away from touring and playing live shows.

"I love being off the road," Sixx added. "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."

The planned 2019 recordings will mark the first new music from the rocker since a pair of 2016 albums from Sixx:AM“Prayers For The Damned” and its companion “Prayers For The Blessed.”

While the group went on hiatus last year, there’s no word yet if the bassist’s trilogy project may include his Sixx:AM bandmates DJ Ashba and James Michael.

When asked by a fan on Twitter if he had written new music for the group, Sixx replied: “We have a lot of cool new music coming next year.”

The bassist also recently reunited with Motley Crue to record four new songs for the companion soundtrack album to the band’s forthcoming Netflix biopic, “The Dirt”, based on their 2001 memoir of the same name.

Due March 22 and directed by Jeff Tremaine, the film features Douglas Booth as Sixx, Daniel Webber as Vince Neil, rapper Machine Gun Kelly as drummer Tommy Lee, and Iwan Rheon as guitarist Mick Mars.
