Sixx:AM albums heavy but diverse says Nikki

Nikki Sixx says he’s completed bass recording duties for both upcoming Sixx:AM albums.

He believes the band have outdone themselves with the material – and he’s emphasised once again that the band will no longer be a side-project after Motley Crue play their final show later this month.

Sixx says: “Fuck, yes – finished all my bass parts for both albums. Tour dates and releases being planned as we speak. DJ Ashba has just a few more solos and guitar tracks to go as James Michael is finalising his lead vocals, then starting the mixing process.

“I felt like we’ve topped ourselves on both albums song-wise, but in the end our fans will make that decision for us.”

In a Facebook question and answer session Sixx describes the records as “heavy but well-rounded” and “diverse,” and adds: “The future is all Sixx:AM.”

Ashba left Guns N’Roses earlier this year in order to focus on the band, who aim to spend at least two years on tour once the album releases are set.

Not only is one-time online news editor Martin an established rock journalist and drummer, but he’s also penned several books on music history, including SAHB Story: The Tale of the Sensational Alex Harvey Band (opens in new tab), a band he once managed, and the best-selling Apollo Memories (opens in new tab) about the history of the legendary and infamous Glasgow Apollo. Martin has written for Classic Rock and Prog and at one time had written more articles for Louder than anyone else (we think he's second now). He’s appeared on TV and when not delving intro all things music, can be found travelling along the UK’s vast canal network.
