Sixx A.M. Release Stripped Down ’7′ E.P. [AUDIO]
For the past week or so, Sixx A.M. have been teasing the release of a new project. A video of a piano version of ‘This is Gonna Hurt’ led many to believe that the upcoming project, entitled ’7′ would be a stripped down version of Sixx A.M.
If you were one of those suspicious characters, you are correct!
The band let the cat out of the bag over the weekend when they announced that ’7′ would feature stripped down versions of fan-chosen Sixx A.M. tunes…In an interview with Noisecreep, here’s what guitarist/vocalist James Michael had to say about ’7′:
“I’ve always loved the concept of taking a song that is already successful and familiar with listeners, and doing something different with it to change its focus. Whether it’s the heavier stuff, or one of our piano ballads, they’ve always attached themselves to the words of these songs. So what we did with ’7′ is present a bunch of our songs in different arrangements to give listeners a chance to maybe see them in a new light. It’s us reinterpreting our own songs. What we didn’t want to do is just take the songs and simply strip them down to an acoustic thing.”
“7′ will be officially released on December 13th, but you can hear it in it’s entirety here:
