James Michael: “There’s Some Incredible New Sixx:A.M. Music That’s Waiting In The Wings”

During a recent interview with Andy Hall of Lazer 103.3, James Michael was asked about the possibility of Sixx:A.M. releasing new material. He responded by saying that there is actually “some incredible new Sixx:A.M. music that’s waiting in the wings.”

Michael said the following:

“We’ve been talking a lot. Nikki [Sixx] and I spent a lot of time talking — not just about music, but just about life in general. But we have had a lot of conversations recently about writing.

Actually, when we got off the road in, I think, 2017, we went right into the studio and recorded a few more songs. So there’s some incredible new Sixx:A.M. music that’s waiting in the wings. So we’re trying to figure out what the next move is, what would make sense for us. And I think this project right here, with ‘Maybe It’s Time’, is a great starter for us to kind of start thinking, ‘Hey, what’s next for us?’ Obviously, with COVID still being such a relevant thing, it’s hard to answer those questions entirely, but we are talking about getting back in the studio and doing some more [writing].”

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.

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.”
