Slipknot, Guns N’ Roses, Def Leppard, Etc. Members Guest On New Version Of Sixx:A.M.’s “Maybe It’s Time”

Sixx:A.M. have released a new version of their song “Maybe It’s Time.” The updated version of the track features the following guests: Slash (Guns N’ Roses), Joe Elliott (Def Leppard), Corey Taylor (Slipknot, Stone Sour), Ivan Moody (Five Finger Death Punch), Tommy Vext (Bad Wolves), Awolnation, and Brantley Gilbert. All participating artists will be donating their royalties to the Global Recovery Initiatives Foundation. On top of that, Better Noise Music are also planning to match the donation.

Sixx:A.M.’s Nikki Sixx (also of Mötley Crüe) said the following:

“I am proud to bring together these artists to help raise funds for the Global Recovery Initiative Foundation. The opioid epidemic did not go away when the pandemic came along. Just the opposite…those in early recovery became even more at risk than before so it’s more important now than ever to raise awareness and support them. I really believe that united we can make a difference and save lives.”

A few of the guests also commented:

Def Leppard‘s Joe Elliot:

“So, Nikki rang me to see if I’d lend a vocal to ‘Maybe It’s Time.’ After hearing the track for the first time in a while, I was reminded how good it is so I was in! It felt right, all around, giving back to the much-needed Global Recovery Initiative.”

Bad Wolves‘ Tommy Vext:

“Alcoholism and drug addiction are family diseases. They’re the only diseases that everyone is mad at and hurt if you have it. People don’t get upset at you if you get cancer. It’s because with addiction, it affects everyone whose life touches the sufferer.”

Slipknot‘s Corey Taylor:

“It’s a real issue… It’s affecting young people more and more every year, so it’s very, very important for all of us to pitch in and do our part, especially some of us who have lived through it…those of us who have survived… it’s the least I can do.”

The new version of “Maybe It’s Time” will be included on the soundtrack to the new film “Sno Babies,” which will be available on on-demand and digital platforms on September 29.

Sixx:A.M. Share New Lyric Video For “X-Mas In Hell”

Sixx:A.M. have shared a new lyric video for “X-Mas In Hell.” That track is from the band’s 2007 album “The Heroin Diaries Soundtrack.”

Nikki Sixx commented:

“I am trying to take things that happened in my life and turning them into positives. Opioid addiction usually ends in death, and that is something we would like to turn around.”

Allen Kovac, CEO of Better Noise Music, added:

“More people died in the USA last year of opioids than car accidents. Nikki is working with the surgeon general in the USA to raise awareness of the opioid crisis and help destigmatize addiction. Nikki Sixx wants us all to remember that there are people in recovery or struggling with opioid addiction right now during the holiday season.”

Nikki Sixx On Sixx:A.M.: “We’re Not Working On An Album Right Now; We’re Working On Individual Tracks”

Sixx:A.M. recently released a new song titled “Talk To Me“, but it appears that there isn’t going to be a new full-length album from the band anytime soon. Nikki Sixx said the following during an appearance on the “Worst Firsts With Brittany Furlan” podcast:

“We’re releasing stuff, little by little. No touring or anything right now… We’re not working on album right now; we’re working on individual tracks. A lot of the music’s gonna be going into [“The Heroin Diaries”] musical that we’re working on right now. So it’s 99 percent SIXX:A.M. music [in the musical], ’cause those lyrics were written around the subject. And there’s probably four or five new songs as well that are in the musical from that.”
