Sixx:A.M. featuring Mötley Crüe bassist Nikki Sixx, former Guns N’ Roses guitarist D.J. Ashba and singer James Michaels have unveiled a lyric video for their track “We Will Not Go Quietly” that appears on their compilation album titled Hits, which was released back on October 22, 2021,
Better Noise Music‘s press release indicates in part:
“Today, fans of music icons Sixx:A.M. can purchase the band’s celebratory HITS album on vinyl and enjoy a new lyric video for their track “We Will Not Go Quietly,” which appears on their latest album released via Better Noise Music. Additionally, the band announced that a cassette version would be available for purchase this March. Originally released in October, the band put together HITS as a retrospective celebration of their biggest hits and fan-favorite songs, including five unheard tracks and mixes, marking the band’s first official album with new material since 2016. Featured on their last album, Prayers for the Blessed, “We Will Not Go Quietly” was directly inspired by the group’s experience on tour and a purposeful step in a more bombastic direction.

The full track listing for the Sixx:A.M. HITS album, which has been streamed 14.5 million times to date, is below. The album is now available across platforms HERE.
The album is a companion piece to Mötley Crüe and Sixx:A.M. founder Nikki Sixx’s new memoir The First 21: How I Became Nikki Sixx, and it contains a track inspired by the book of the same name. Immediately following its release last fall, Sixx officially became a four-time New York Times best-selling author, entering the coveted list at #8 on the Hardcover chart and #11 on the Combined Print And Ebook List. The First 21 continues Sixx’s tradition of setting the soundtrack to his own life, combining his work as a writer and a musician to offer multi-layered pieces of art. Expanding this artistic signature move by Sixx, The First 21 now has its own soundtrack with the HITS album.
It’s a universal truth that true artists will always busy themselves creating, and that truly great artists will always find an audience for that work. It is little surprise then that despite storied individual histories playing in and working with some of the most iconic bands ever to have walked the planet, Nikki Sixx, Dj Ashba and James Michael—collectively known as Sixx:A.M.— are set to unleash a collection of their hits featuring new material onto their forever loyal fan-base, that has already taken them firmly to their hearts.
Sixx:A.M., an American rock band from Los Angeles, California, formed in 2007, is best known for their #1 hits, “Life Is Beautiful” and “Lies of the Beautiful People”. The name Sixx:A.M. is a combination of all of the members’ last names (Sixx, Ashba, Michael).
To date Sixx:A.M. have three U.S. Billboard top 20 albums and a string of hit singles already under their belts, with their full catalogue consisting of five studio albums: The Heroin Diaries Soundtrack (2007), This Is Gonna Hurt (2011), Modern Vintage (2014) Prayers for the Damned and Blessed (2016), and three EPs; X-Mas In Hell (2008); Live Is Beautiful (2008) and 7 (2011).
Sixx:A.M. Hits is a collection of songs that will fire up both the head and heart in equal measure – a band who found their true sound and producing art that refuses to be led by anything but their own desires.
From the songwriting and musicianship to James Michael‘s production and mixing and Dj Ashba‘s captivating artwork, Sixx:A.M. have crafted a style in music as much of a mission statement for the band as it is an impassioned call to arms.”
