'The Heroin Diaries' Turns 10! Anniversary editions out TODAY!



Los Angeles, CA, October 27, 2017 ----  This week sees the release of 10th anniversary editions of Nikki Sixx’s drug-soaked NY Times bestselling memoir, THE HEROIN DIARIES via Gallery Books / Simon & Schuster and SiXX:A.M.’s The Heroin Diaries Soundtrack via Eleven Seven Music.

Both packages, released a decade ago, are more timely than ever. As the United States finds itself in the throes of a devastating modern opioid epidemic, Sixx’s recovery advocacy and honesty about the reality of addiction provide a window into the reality of heroin and opioid dependency. The iconic rock artist recently penned a powerful OpEd in the Los Angeles Times and appeared on MSNBC’s “The Beat With Ari Melber” to shed further light on the subject.

Sixx has also launched an interactive heatmap, now live at https://www.theheroindiaries10.com, to further the dialogue and shed light on the personal stories of those struggling with addiction. The Heatmap serves as an interactive place where people can pin their locations and share their stories of addiction and recovery. They can share a personal story as part of the diary section (anonymously), read other diary entries, and view the current state of the epidemic in data form.


As the creative force behind a multitude of projects, Sixx never stops inventing new ways to express himself and continues to unveil his unusual points of view with new projects. Mediums such as his photography, books, radio shows, TV projects, music and others have given Sixx the ability to fully develop as an artist.

Sixx’s first ever photography exhibition, in collaboration with Leica Camera, entitled Conversations with Angels is now on display at Leica Gallery Los Angeles  with plans to expand to other cities next year.  Proceeds from all sales of Nikki Sixx’s gallery exhibits depicting homelessness will benefit Covenant House California, Los Angeles to raise funds for a photography room & program for Covenant House residents.

Sixx will wrap up his #1 syndicated rock iHeartRadio show Sixx Sense with Nikki Sixx December 31, 2017 to focus on new projects including the Broadway adaptation of The Heroin Diaries.

Sixx will appear live today in Los Angeles to sign copies of the book and soundtrack at The Grove Barnes & Noble. Details here.

THE HEROIN DIARIES: 10th Anniversary Edition Soundtrack by SIXX:A.M features new artwork, personal notes from the band and include 3 newly re-imagined tracks: “Life Is Beautiful 2017”, “Accidents Can Happen 2017”, and Girl With Golden Eyes 2017”. THE HEROIN DIARIES: Ten Year Anniversary Edition by Nikki Sixx features a new cover, never-before-seen photos and exclusive brand new chapters.

Official Video for "We Will Not Go Quietly" Premiere + Pre-Order 'Vol. 2 - Prayers For The Blessed' Now Available

U.S. Arena Tour Kicks Off October 18th

SIXX:A.M. unleash the first new track, “We Will Not Go Quietly,” from their November 18 release,  Vol. 2 Prayers for the Blessed TODAY! Fans, who pre-order the new album via iTunes HERE, will instantly receive a download of the song in their iTunes library.  Exclusive 'Vol. 2 Prayers For The Blessed' album bundles available HERE. The official video for the outsider anthem also premieres today and was directed by iconic director Wayne Isham (Michael Jackson, Muse, Britney Spears).  Filmed during their show in Edmonton, Alberta last month, the video offers viewers a “show-day-in-the-life-of” the band, in addition to their powerful on-stage energy. Watch it HERE.  

“We Will Not Go Quietly” can also be heard as the theme song of A&E’s Gangland Undercover, which begins airing December 2 (check local listings). 

"We Will Not Go Quietly" takes the call-to-action spirit of RISE to a whole new level. It reflects the raw passion with which mankind fights as some of our most basic human rights are being threatened. We are excited to share the song and video with everyone and hope that it inspires people to continue to strive to make the world a better place." -James Michael

Written and recorded at the same time as Vol. 1, Prayers For The Damned (April 2016), Vol. 2 Prayers For The Blessed acts as a companion piece to the first volume while simultaneously elevating the band's sound in every area.  "This band has always found the light within the darkness and I think that's especially evident on this album," Ashba explains. Fans can sample songs from the album NOW via the album teaser HERE. From the lead single, "We Will Not Go Quietly", to the operatic show stopper, "Maybe It's Time", and groove-driven, radio-ready rocker, "That's Gonna Leave A Scar," Prayers For The Blessed displays the many sides of Sixx:A.M.'s sound, something that the band was able to develop by ramping up the amount of time they spent out on the road. "We really found ourselves onstage and it's influencing the way we write," says Nikki Sixx. "We started focusing on our music not only as songwriters and lyricists but also stayed conscious of what would transfer over live to the audience.”
Touring three continents this year, Sixx:A.M. are excited to share their music with a global audience and perform the songs from Prayers For The Blessed. After wrapping up live performances across Canada and Japan, the band will embark on the U.S. leg of their tour which kicks off October 18 at Verizon Arena in Little Rock, AR and includes stops in Denver, Las Vegas, Anaheim and Philadelphia. Tickets for the tour can be purchased HERE.
