Sixx:A.M. – the long-running project featuring Motley Crue bassist Nikki Sixx alongside former Guns N’ Roses guitarist DJ Ashba and vocalist James Michael — will release the Hits album on October 22 via Better Noise Music. The project is a retrospective celebration of the band’s biggest hits and fan-favorite songs. And, most notably, it includes six previously unheard songs, marking the band’s first official album with new material since 2016.
Hits will arrive three days after the highly anticipated release of Sixx’s new memoir The First 21: How I Became Nikki Sixx (Hachette Books). One of the new songs included on the album is also titled “The First 21,” with its lyrics being inspired by the captivating content of the book.
To celebrate today’s announcement, Sixx:A.M. released a new track from the album, “Skin (Rock Mix)”, accompanied by a striking lyric video. The track originally appeared on the band’s second studio album This Is Gonna Hurt, and quickly became a fan favorite. The new mix, which makes for a heavier, more anthemic sonic experience, is now available to stream and download across platforms.
