Rock band SIXX: A.M., which consists of bassist Nikki Sixx, guitarist DJ Ashba and vocalist James Michael, has announced a rare performance, and its first in four years, set to take place on April 11 at Revolver Golden Gods Awards at Club Nokia in Los Angeles.
As each band member has been kept busy with their other careers — Sixx is also the bassist for MÖTLEY CRÜE and a syndicated radio host; Ashba is currently touring with GUNS N’ ROSES; James Michael is a famed rock producer who is currently working on new records for PAPA ROACH, HALESTORM and others — this marks the band’s first chance to perform in support of their current album, “This Is Gonna Hurt”, which has already supplied the #1 rock anthem “Lies Of The Beautiful People”.
Michael attended the Golden Gods press conference in Los Angeles yesterday (Wednesday, February 15) to announce the band’s involvement in the awards, which coincide with the impact of the band’s next single, “Are You With Me Now”.
“7”, the latest EP from SIXX: A.M., came out in December and sold around 2,700 copies in the United States in its first week of release. The effort contains acoustic versions of songs from the group’s first two albums — 2007’s “The Heroin Diaries” soundtrack and 2011’s “This Is Gonna Hurt”.
“This Is Gonna Hurt” has sold around 100,000 copies since its May 2011 release. Released on May 3, 2011, the 11-track CD is a companion piece to Sixx‘s “This Is Gonna Hurt: Music, Photography And Life Through The Distorted Lens Of Nikki Sixx” book, a follow-up to his New York Times bestseller, “The Heroin Diaries”.
