SIXX:A.M. ANNOUNCES THIRD ALBUM, “MODERN VINTAGE,” SINGLE “GOTTA GET IT RIGHT” POSTED ONLINE

sixxam400 The long-awaited third release from SIXX:A.M., the band comprised of James Michael (vocals), DJ Ashba (guitar) and Nikki Sixx (bass) is entitled Modern Vintage. Produced by James Michael, the album will be available on October 7th with the first single Gotta Get It Right on iTunes now. Watch the video below.

Says bassist Nikki Sixx, “Like our favorite bands from the 1970s, Sixx:A.M. is rooted in songwriting, musicianship and lyrics – three core elements that helped to define that era. Sixx:A.M. has taken even more pages from this book on Gotta Get It Right and the rest of Modern Vintage, having hopefully created a record that demands to be discovered again and again.”

Watch the band discuss the new album in the first of several upcoming behind-the-scenes webisodes at www.sixxammusic.com.

Shares vocalist James Michael, “On the first two albums, Sixx:AM established a musical freedom that few bands get to enjoy. Gotta Get It Right is clearly a birth child of that creative freedom and an exciting next step for us as our goal was to create something which confounds both expectation and categorization”. Adds guitarist DJ Ashba, Gotta Get it Right is a great example of how Sixx:AM has set out to celebrate the music that has influenced us over the years and we truly feel we’ve made a genre defying album with Modern Vintage.”

  1. John the Drummer says:

    What?! No drummer? That’s gonna sound weird.

  2. Who plays drums? I suspect this record will be pretty good. Very melodic, yet heavy.

  3. I like that they are taking some chances. It is a little different but I think I could get used to it. I love the deeper cuts on cd’s anyway. Sixx A.M so far have had some real GEMS for deep cuts. (Oh My God, Are You With Me Now, Courtesy Call, Girl With Golden Eyes and Accidents Can Happen)

  4. UGHHHH!

  5. It reminds me a lot of Cheap Trick. They sound like programmed drums though which is ok, if that’s what you’re going for.

    Peter Criss on the drums!

    • Hell yeah! Even at 68, Peter would do a better job than a “drum machine”! I HATE those F’N things, there’s nothing like the human touch. Keep it real, keep it human! :)

      • How was ATLANTIC CITY kid? Hope you won. You’re such a nice boy.

        • …Richman, my fellow Mets fan, Atlantic City was great! Hagar, Anthony, Bonham, Johnson, were F’N awesome! Their rendition of “Rock And Roll” was amazing, Plant, Page, Jones, and John Bonham would be proud. As long as you bet with your head, and not over it, you’ll always win! As far as Kiss goes, I actually won $150.00 from one of the Kiss slot machines, Gene might not be happy about that, but I am! Let’s go Mets! :)

      • At least the drum machine would show up on time and not threaten to quit every couple of weeks.

        • OH LOOKOUT! Mr Casio is working quadruple-time these days. Nikki is in a band where the drummer is by far the best musician so now that he has his own side project, he is trying to marginalize the drums. Nikki is a great song writer but as far as drummers go, Tommy is one of the best ever. So no star drummers here, only sessionists. Can’t wait to here Tommy in SMASHING PUMPKINS.

        • DR, that’s because the drum machine isn’t human! ;)
          Wasn’t Peter Criss ever a team player? I mean it couldn’t have always been bad like that. Yes I know about Peter & Ace’s “bad habits”, but they’re only “human”. Even though sometimes Peter thinks he’s really a cat and Ace believes he’s an alien! LOL! But everybody shows up late sometimes, and threatens to quit at least once in a while, don’t they? After all, just like Gene likes to say, “that’s show business”, and as always “the show must go on”, even it’s a little late! :)

          • Sorry Doug I got no love for Mr. Crosscola. That dude never had a clue as to how good he had it and he blew it…multiple times. Even Ace was happy for a short while when Peter got the boot during Dynasty.
            As for Richman, I too am extremely interested to hear what Tommy Lee has cooked up with that freak Corgan. Word on the street is that it’s amazing stuff, although we haven’t heard Lee’s take on it yet.

        • Hahahaha…freakin hysterical…

  7. Big Daddy says:

    Good God that is AWFUL!

  8. SNOOOOOOOOOOOZE!
    Hey Dana, You got any JUDAS PRIEST or AC/DC news. Maybe something along the lines of GENE SIMMONS MOTHER SAYS ACE FREHLEY IS A D@#CHEBAG. Let me be the first the say:
    HAPPY BIRTHDAY MR. TRUNK. LONG LIVE MEGAFORCE RECORDS. Thanks for the memories dawg.

  9. Well you didn’t get it right that time ………….

  10. That blows. WTF is that !!!!!!

  11. I always wondered why Nikki never sings on these things. He has a decent rock voice. I don’t know who the vocalist is, but he sounds pretty stock to me.

    It’s a catchy poppy tune. Nikki looks kinda out of place playing this kind of music.

  12. Don’t quote me but I thought someone posted on youtube,that the drummer from the “FOO FIGHTERS” is doing the drum tracks…Think Nikki has always had a cool grasp on song writing from different angles,let the band breathe a little…..

  13. Nikki must be happy as hell to have a real singer to work with.

  14. I can’t say I dig it.

  15. Mark Weichold says:

    Gotta love how Nikki makes no bones about it all the time that it is a waste of time to make albums in this day and age with the REAL band he formed “by the way that band name is tatooed on my body”

    But he will do this, WTF this is horrible!!!

  16. Drum machines have feelings too in till you remove the battery’s

  17. Greg in H20town says:

    Well you do realize that peter created the ‘cat man’ and ace created ‘space ace’….I know the paint is gene’$ and paul’$…..just sayin….L oh! L

  18. With Vince running at 50% and buried in the mix….he must like vocals.

  19. Johnny Sorvino says:

    I don’t know, not that great.
    Nikki Sixx is a smart and cool dude though.

  20. This is my first time hearing any of SixxAM music, and I like this, unexpectedly. Their look is certainly more sinister than their sound.

  21. For the love of god guys. Please stop it with Kiss allready. And I’m a little upset Niki will do a new record with A.M. But not with Motley.

  22. Loved “This is Gonna Hurt.” One of my favorite albums over the past 10 years. Looking forward to this one.
