As some of you might know already, our dear NIKKI SIXX has been working for roughly 2 years on a personal project called the "HEROIN DIARIES".
The idea has been announced back in summer 2005 with the launching of
his personal website
, at that time he introduced HEROIN DIARIES as a multi-platform project: a book, a record based on the book (something like a soundtrack so to speak..), and finally a video for each song on that record.
And here come the good news: the record seems to be ready to be launched, the first excerpt of HEROIN DIARIES is the killer track entitled "Life is beautiful" is available to download (for free) on the
HEROIN DIARIES' myspace page
Just a few words about the soundtrack: NIKKI worked with his famous friends DJ Ashba (Beautiful Creatures) and James Michael on vocals.
Can't stop playing that new track, the result kicks major ass haha!!
I think it was worth to wait...but enough said, less talk more action: can't wait to have this fucking package in hands now!!!
- The triplet N. Sixx / DJ Ashba / James Michael is now officially known as the band SIXX:A.M [size=75:25zkhgsy](kickass name)[/size]
- They'll premiere the "Life Is Beautiful" video on Tuesday, May 22.
- The CD will hits stores on August 21 and will feature 12 tracks each match up with one chapter in the book.
- The book will be released on September 25.
- The Heroin Diaries: A Year In The Life Of A Shattered Rock Star will come out through MTV Books/Simon & Schuster. The accompanying original concept soundtrack will be released by Eleven Seven Music and distributed by ADA, with a portion of proceeds donated to Nikki’s Running Wild in the Night, a fundraising initiative for Covenant House.
- The book is a tell-all covering 12 months in Sixx's battle against addiction, drawn from Nikki's 1986 and '87 journals, and reportedly makes Crüe's celebrated Dirt, now being made into a motion picture, sound like Mary Poppins......
