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.”

Vince Neil & Nikki Sixx Blast Reelz For Mötley Crüe Episode Of “Breaking The Band”

It looks like Vince Neil and Nikki Sixx are not too happy with the new Mötley Crüe episode of Reelz’s “Breaking The Band” series. Both musicians have taken to social media to voice their concerns about the documentary, which Sixx says was unauthorized.

Here’s what Neil had to say:

“Breaking the band, fucking memories from a manager Doug Thaler who can’t remember that he’s the one who actually broke up the band! The band didn’t break up because of me racing. It broke up because he was too much of a pussy who didn’t just say, ‘Hey guys, let’s take a week off and come back with cooler heads.’ He called me an hour later and said I was out of the band! Great management! What he didn’t say was, instead of me going racing I put out a top 10 single with ‘You’re Invited’ — oops he forgot! Then an album called ‘Exposed’ — oops, forgot again! No wonder he was fired shortly after.”

Here’s what Sixx had to say:

“Breaking the band was not authorized by Mötley Crüe. Our lawyers sent them a cease-and-desist and further action will be taken.@ReelzChannel Is the bottom of the barrel.”

“Should @ReelzChannel be liable for putting out shows without so many artist approval? I am very disappointed that they think they can tell our LIFE story just to sell advertising ( mostly incorrect ) and without any bodies persmission.”
