This year marks the 10th anniversary of the release of Nikki Sixx’s drug-soaked NY Times bestselling memoir, The Heroin Diaries and Sixx:A.M.’s The Heroin Diaries Soundtrack.
To commemorate more than a decade of sobriety and life lessons learned, Nikki Sixx and Sixx:A.M. revisit the seminal work; announcing Tenth Anniversary Editions of the book and album in multiple formats including: digital LP, CD, CD / DVD, and Special Edition Vinyl, and Graphic Novel.
Says Sixx: “Over the last ten years I’ve met so many people who have thanked me for The Heroin Diaries and say that it saved their lives,” explains Nikki. “But the truth is, writing The Heroin Diaries saved my life too.”
Sixx:A.M. also celebrates its 10-year anniversary with the re-release of The Heroin Diaries Soundtrack: 10th Anniversary Edition.
The Heroin Diaries: Ten Year Anniversary Edition by Nikki Sixx is out October 24th via Gallery Books / Simon & Schuster featuring a new cover, never-before-seen photos and exclusive brand new chapters.
The Heroin Diaries: 10th Anniversary Edition Soundtrack by Sixx:A.M. will be released October 27th via Eleven Seven Music as a digital album, CD, and CD/DVD. A limited edition vinyl package will also come later this year. All music configurations feature 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”.
Also on pre-sale today is The Heroin Diaries graphic novel, a collaboration that Nikki Sixx and HEAVY METAL recently announced at ComicCon San Diego. The Graphic Novel presents the Heroin Diaries from a different angle and gives both insight and understanding to the deadly trap and temptation of addiction adapted by Rantz Hoseley, illustrated by Danijel Zezelj, and Keiron Dwyer, an with exclusive cover art by David Mack.
In addition, Sixx will debut his first-ever photography exhibit in partnership with Leica Camera at the Leica Gallery Los Angeles beginning October 4 (announcement forthcoming). The collection features Sixx’s most precious moments and interactions from the past decade, in images including homelessness and drug addiction amongst other topics which Sixx was all too familiar with before photography helped change his life post-sobriety.
