Sixx:AM “Modern Vintage” Album Review.

In an age where the internet is a great platform medium to introduce new artists to the world it’s no wonder why side projects of already famous musicians seem to be popping up from all corners of the music industry. The idea of being in two bands seemed odd to me when I first head of Sixx:A.M. I was twelve years old when I first heard Life is Beautiful and had very little actual knowledge of music at the time. I did, however, know that Nikki Sixx was the bassist for Motley Crue and after one Google search came to realize that he was a founder of Sixx:A.M. It seemed that the band would never really be anything more than a true side project as long as Motley Crue was still touring and recording music. Fast forward seven years into the future, Motley Crue are currently on their last tour slated to go into 2015, and Sixx:A.M. are releasing their third studio album entitled, “Modern Vintage”.

The oxy moron of an album name implies that the sound of vintage music will be a theme on the new album, making it modern; and it truly lives up to it’s name. This is the band’s first full length effort that doesn’t follow a concept through the album, telling pieces of a story in each song. Considering the previous two albums were written based off [Nikki] Sixx’s autobiography, “The Heroin Diaries”, it’s no surprise that the first effort away from the book provides a much lighter, easier going listen. I am as much a fan of the dark themes and undertones presented before… but the change of pace was much needed if you ask me.

The opening track of the album, Stars, opens with a very choppy, distorted riff that immediately screams modern rock, or at least what modern rock is missing.

Joyce Manor Release Statement On Recent Reactions To Stage Diving

Barry Johnson of Joyce Manor has released a statement via their Facebook page in regards to a recent altercation with fans at their show in Houston, Texas. The statement can be read below.

"I wasn’t able to watch people being hurt so I asked people not to act in the way that was hurting people. If that means you don’t support the band, I respect that. If you don’t want to attend the shows, we respect that. If you’ve bought a ticket to the show and want your money back because you want that to be your experience, we will refund you.

I don’t have an issue with anyone’s lifestyle. I apologize to losing my cool in Houston. I saw someone whose full intention was to harm people and was upset.

I look forward to playing music in a safe environment for everyone from here on out.”
