Nikki Sixx bassist for the band Motley Crue will release This Is Gonna Hurt: Music, Photography and Life Through the Distorted Lens of Nikki Sixx on April 12.

“It’s definitely not an autobiography,” he says. “I don’t write with an editor in mind or critique myself. It’s just me shooting from the hip. Sometimes it’s tirades and rants. Sometimes it’s very focused. Sometimes it’s very sentimental and soft and reflective. Sometimes it’s brutal in is assholeishness. It’s all my opinion, and I stand by it.”

The companion album of the same name will drop in stores May 10. Sixx states that Sixx: AM weren’t necessarily looking to record another book soundtrack.

 As for Motley Crue's future plans, They have some things book such as Bamboozle and other festivals this summer.  It will be the 30th anniversary of the band.
