According to Mötley Crüe bassist Nikki Sixx, his SIXX: A.M. band — which also features guitarist DJ Ashba and vocalist James Michael — will enter the studio in late June to begin work on its fourth album, tentatively due in 2016.
SIXX: A.M.‘s recently completed “Modern Vintage” tour included a limited number of dates all across North America. While on the road, the prolific band was in the process of writing music for its upcoming CD.
To round out its live lineup, SIXX: A.M. added drummer Dustin Steinke of Bleeker Ridge into the mix for the tour, as well as backup singers Melissa Harding and Amber VanBuskirk.
Michael told Lithium Magazine about “Modern Vintage“: “We think it’s our best record so far, and the feedback has been really incredible, to be honest with you.“
He continued: “When we put out the first single, ‘Gotta Get It Right’, it was a daring choice for us, because we had other songs on the album that were so much more what SIXX: A.M. fans are expecting. But because of how different this record is and how important it is to us, we wanted to put out a single that kind of set the stage for what is to come.“
Michael added: “DJ and I got back from Europe [where] we were doing a bunch of press, and I was kind of blown away with how positive the reaction has been, because when you take risks like this, you fully expect to get some pushback. But it has been wonderful so far.”
