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” hitting iTunes and radio on August 5th.
“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 states. “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 sixxammusic.com. The video for “Gotta Get It Right” – directed by Paul Brown – will premiere on Vevo on August 6th. “On the first two albums, Sixx:AM established a musical freedom that few bands get to enjoy,” Michael shares.
“‘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”. “‘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,” Ashba declares.
