On April 12, Nikki Sixx will publish "This Is Gonna Hurt: Music, Photography And Life Through The Distorted Lens Of Nikki Sixx," the follow-up to his 2007 New York Times bestseller "The Heroin Diaries: A Year in the Life of a Shattered Rock Star." The companion album of the same name, similar to "The Heroin Diaries Soundtrack," surfaces May 10, while the first single, "Lies of the Beautiful People," comes out March 1.
Sixx has already posted three teaser videos for "This is Gonna Hurt" at www.nikkisixx.net and is planning to add more content, including a series of mini-documentaries related to the project. He's planning a promotional tour but not necessarily a concert run, even though Sixx:AM performed on the 2008 Crue Fest. And while other Motley Crue members have said Crue Fest will return this year and next to celebrate that group's 30th anniversary, Sixx says nothing is in stone quite yet.
