Sixx: AM – For now, the album “Hits” is “a good way to conclude”


Sixx: AM will release its Shots compilation this Friday (October 22) and during a conversation with the Metal On Loud podcast (as heard below), singer James Michael suggested that the band viewed the collection as a way to wrap up their work … at least to the moment.

After releasing two albums and touring extensively in 2016, the band took a long hiatus. However, the group returned in 2019 with “Talk to Me,” written to highlight America’s opioid crisis. And soon word came that new music was being written for them. Shots collection too.

But Michael says returning to business doesn’t necessarily mean the band is restarting with more to come. “I think for us we really don’t know what the future holds for Sixx: AM So for us when we sat down and started making these recordings [for Hits], it was sort of, in our minds, ‘Okay, that’s a good way to wrap up the work of Sixx: AM.’ So we thought of it as ‘This is the end, at least for now.’ “

He adds: “It was also a big aspect for us to go into the studio and do it because we really wanted to be able to – for lack of a better way to describe it – wrap this up and put a nice bow on it and really do it. feels like we’ve controlled this from start to finish. So it was fun and exciting. And like I said, we never know what Sixx: AM is going to do in the future, but for now. , we’re looking at that and saying, ‘This is a good way to wrap up.’ “

Michael also stated that at present there are no plans to tour in support of the Shots collection, noting that Motley Crue’s 2022 Stadium Tour is at the top of Nikki Sixx’s to-do list. He also adds: “When we got off the road a few years ago we were all pretty exhausted. And I think we just naturally made the decision that this could be the case for Sixx: AM when it comes to touring. .. But you never know what free time does to someone. So we’ll see. “

Sixx: AM first arrived on the scene in 2007 with Nikki Sixx recruiting Michael and guitarist DJ Ashba to help her record a corresponding soundtrack for her memoir. Heroin diaries. Four years later, the trio reunited to create music for Sixx’s It will hurt delivered. The group then followed with 2014 Vintage Modern album, and 2016 Prayers for the Damned, Vol. 1 and Prayers for the Blessed, Vol. 2.
