SIXX: A.M., the new band featuring MÖTLEY CRÜE bassist Nikki Sixx, is preparing to hit the road for a select number of U.S. dates but due to the bandmembers' limited availabilities, they are giving fans the power to decide which markets they will play. Fans can cast a vote for now their city on www.votesixxam.com. The winning cities and SIXX: A.M. tour routing will be announced February 19.
Sixx wrote and recorded the album with longtime friends James Michael and D.J. Ashba and has resisted the idea of turning the project into an actual band. But Sixx told The Pulse of Radio that may all be changing. "It seems that people have been able to really feel that it's a band, they really feel that it's something that they can get behind and they can go, 'You know, I really support these guys in what they're doing,'" he said. "It's interesting 'cause we never planned on playing live together, and then we played live together, and that went off so well that I think we accidentally started a band."
Rumors initially surfaced that SIXX: A.M. would tour in February, although Sixx shot down those reports. The project has only played live once so far, last fall at a Utah radio festival.
The SIXX: A.M. album serves as the "soundtrack" to Sixx's recently published book, "The Heroin Diaries: A Year in the Life of a Shattered Rock Star".
The CD's current single, "Life is Beautiful", is likely to be followed by "Accidents Can Happen".
Twenty-five percent of Sixx's royalties from "The Heroin Diaries" goes to Running Wild In The Night, a charity he established in conjunction with Covenant House to rescue homeless and runaway youth from the streets.
Sixx is also said to be writing a new album with MÖTLEY CRÜE, although details on that project are scarce.
