Sixx:AM confirm album no.3

Sixx:AM have confirmed their long-awaited third album will be released on October 6.

Motley Crue’s Nikki Sixx, Guns n’Roses’ DJ Ashba and frontman James Michael completed work months ago, but it’s had to wait for a gap in their collective schedules.

Sixx hasn’t yet revealed the title of the follow-up to 2011’s This Is Gonna Hurt, but he’s leaked the names of some tracks – Gotta Get It Right, Stars, Let It Haunt You, Hyperventilate and Relief. A video for the first song was shot in June.

He recently said: “I think fans are going to love this record, and I think new people will come in and be really surprised by it. Our first two records don’t sound the same, but there’s a sound with the band and I think we’re going to continue that tradition.”

Sixx is currently busy with Motley Crue’s farewell world tour. Guns n’Roses future plans aren’t certain although frontman Axl Rose recently shouted down retirement rumours. The band’s classic track Sweet Child O’Mine last month played a part in a hard-hitting road safety campaign.

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.
