Having just wrapped up their first full-scale headlining tour, Sixx: A.M., Motley Crue bassist Nikki Sixx's side band, is ready to return to the studio, just as soon as the vetreran rocker gets a break in his schedule. Sixx hopes to record with Sixx:A.M. during the breaks in his other group's farewell tour.
"I'll be home 4 days before Motley plays a couple of festivals in Europe, then back to America and into the studio with Sixx:A.M. before Motley starts our final American tour," Sixx recently wrote on Facebook.
Though Sixx:A.M. has been releasing albums since 2007, most recently 2014's Modern Vintage, the band has never been out on a full tour. The group was conceived as a studio-only project, but the success of and the fan reaction to singles like "Stars" and "Lies of the Beautiful People" made Sixx and his band mates want to bring Sixx:A.M. to the stage.
Sixx:A.M. won't have a lot of time in the studio, as Motley Crue's final North American tour kicks off July 16 in Anchorage, Alaska, and runs all the way through New Year's Eve in Los Angeles. Of course, after that, Nikki's schedule will be wide open.
