Sixx:A.M., comprised of Mötley Crüe bassist Nikki Sixx, Guns N' Roses guitarist DJ Ashba, and vocalist James Michael, will release their third album, Modern Vintage, on October 7th. The first single from the album, "Gotta Get It Right", will be released via iTunes on August 5th.
Says 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.”
The video for “Gotta Get It Right” - directed by Paul Brown - will premiere on Vevo on August 6th.
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.”
