August 2017 marks the 10th anniversary of the release of Nikki Sixx's drug-soaked NY Times best selling memoir, The Heroin Diaries and SIXX:A.M.'s The Heroin Diaries Soundtrack. To commemorate more than a decade of sobriety and life lessons learned, Nikki Sixx and SIXX:A.M. revisit the seminal work; presenting a 10th Anniversary Edition of the album in a colored 180g 2LP + DVD configuration.
Nikki Sixx got sober 16 years ago. A decade ago he shared this story with the world. And yet with the modern opioid crisis looming larger than ever; Sixx's journey to sobriety and the words and music it inspired remains poignantly relevant. Chronicling the year of decadence and depravity that almost cost Sixx his life during the recording and tour for Mötley Crüe's seminal 1987 album Girls Girls Girls, the book not only became a worldwide bestseller but also spawned the band SIXX:A.M.
SIXX:A.M. celebrates its 10-year anniversary with the re-release of The Heroin Diaries Soundtrack: 10th Anniversary Edition. Comprised of James Michael (vocalist, producer, songwriter), DJ Ashba (guitarist, songwriter), Nikki Sixx (bassist, songwriter), the group initially came together to write, record, and co-produce The Heroin Diaries Soundtrack, which sold over 300,000 copies, and the #1 hit single, "Life Is Beautiful," became radio's most played rock song of 2008.
Deluxe vinyl casebound 28-page book with colored 180g 2LP (available for the first time on the format), DVD, and personal journal. The DVD will includes the making of the album and music videos for "Life Is Beautiful," "Tomorrow," "Pray For Me," and "Accidents Can Happen."
