Interview with James Michael of SIXX: A.M.

Today, October 22nd, Sixx:A.M. have unveiled their new single “The First 21” from their upcoming compilation album Sixx:A.M. HITS via Better Noise Music.   Check it out right here https://sixxam.ffm.to/hits

The album is a retrospective celebration of the iconic band’s biggest hits and fan-favourite songs, that will also include five unheard tracks and mixes, marking the band's first official album with new material since 2016.  

I recently had the absolute pleasure to get on a Zoom chat with frontman, producer, songwriter James Michael to delve into what The First 21 means to him and how he, Nikki and fellow band-mate DJ Ashba went about selecting the tracks that make up HITS.  You can watch that interview below.

Earlier this week, saw the release of The First 21, the latest memoir from Nikki Sixx.  After earning 21 years of sobriety, founding member of Mötley Crüe and Sixx:A.M. Nikki Sixx is still incredibly passionate about his craft and transparent about his life in rock and roll. Now a three-time New York Times best-selling author, Sixx tells the inspirational story of how Frank Feranna became Nikki Sixx in his first 21 years of life.

A Vinyl release of HITS is due out 3 December, which you can pre-order right here in the Rock Lives Here Store.
