SixxAM record new material for greatest hits collection

Nikki Sixx has confirmed that Sixx:AM have recorded new material for an upcoming greatest hits collection in sync with the Broadway adaptation of his 2007 memoir, "The Heroin Diaries."

The New York Times bestseller chronicles a year of decadence and depravity that almost cost Sixx his life during the recording and tour for Motley Crue’s 1987 album, “Girls Girls Girls.”

"I've just done four new songs with Sixx: A.M.," the bassist revealed during an interview on The Build series. "Really magical. I think we're gonna go in and record another song as well. We have a greatest hits 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."

Formed in 2007, the trio of Sixx, DJ Ashba and James Michael have released five studio albums; the group announced a hiatus following the 2017 release of an expanded 10th anniversary reissue of "The Heroin Diaries" soundtrack.

Last year, Ashba and Michaels formed a new outfit, Pyromantic, while Sixx continued work on other projects – including Motley Crue’s upcoming Netflix biopic, “The Dirt”, which premieres on the channel on March 22 alongside the same day release of a companion soundtrack album.
