Sixx AM (opens in new tab) have released a new lyric video for their track X-Mas In Hell.

The song originally appeared on The Heroin Diaries soundtrack, with the promo featuring bassist Nikki Sixx’s Christmas Day entry from 1986 which has been taken from his 2007 book The Heroin Diaries.

Motley Crue’s Sixx famously said: “There is something about spending Christmas alone, naked, sitting by the Christmas tree gripping a shotgun, that lets you know your life is spinning dangerously outta control.”

He now says: “I am trying to take things that happened in my life and turning them into positives. Opioid addiction usually ends in death and that is something we would like to turn around.”

The band’s manager Allen Kovac adds: “More people died in the USA last year of opioids than car accidents. Nikki is working with the Surgeon General in the USA to raise awareness of the Opioid Crisis and help de-stigmatise addiction. 

“Nikki Sixx wants us all to remember that there are people in recovery or struggling with opioid addiction right now during the holiday season.”

Sixx will rejoin his Motley Crue bandmates in 2020 for their massive summer stadium tour with Def Leppard, Poison and Joan Jett.
