NIKKI SIXX AND SIXX:A.M. RELEASE 2017 ANNIVERSARY EDITIONS OF NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLING MEMOIR AND SOUNDTRACK ALBUM - BOTH OUT NOW
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”.
