You can watch the lyric video for the new "rock mix" of "Skin," a song originally featured on 2011's This Is Gonna Hurt, below.

Formed in 2007, Sixx:A.M. pairs Sixx with guitarist DJ Ashba and singer James Michael. The band has released five albums, the most recent being 2016’s Prayers for the Blessed, Vol. 2, which followed Prayers for the Damned Vol. 1 earlier that year.

In August 2020, Sixx:A.M. released “Maybe It’s Time,” a single designed to help raise awareness of the world’s opioid crisis. Guns N’ Roses guitarist Slash and Def Leppard singer Joe Elliot made guest appearances on the track.

Sixx announced that he and the band were working on new material back in 2019. “I've just done four new songs with SIXX:A.M.,” he said on the YouTube series BUILD, noting that the tracks were “really magical.” “I think we're gonna go in and record another song as well."

In the same interview, Sixx mentioned the long-rumored stage adaptation of his 2007 memoir The Heroin Diaries: A Year in the Life of a Shattered Rock Star. At the time, he also noted that Sixx:A.M. were planning "a greatest-hits [collection] that's gonna tie in to the musical.”
