After signing with Elektra Records, they re-released the same album.
The band went on hiatus in 2017, with other members DJ Ashba and James Michael forming a new band, Pyromantic.
Sixx co-wrote the track "Die For You", along with Cooper and Mötley Crüe guitarist Mick Mars.
A new version of "Heads Will Roll" appeared on Raven's 2006 EP Heads Will Roll and on her 2007 U. In September 2007, Sixx released a book titled The Heroin Diaries: A Year in the Life of a Shattered Rock Star, a collection of his journal entries from 19 (when his heroin addiction was at its most dangerous).
Written with British journalist Ian Gittins, it presents the present-day viewpoints of his bandmates, friends, ex-lovers, caretakers, business associates and family as they respond to specific passages.
Along with Big & Rich (John Rich and Big Kenny Alphin), and James Otto, Sixx co-wrote "Ain't Gonna Stop" for Otto's 2008 Sunset Man CD on Warner Bros/Raybaw Records.
In September 2011, Sixx is scheduled to appear on the live streaming video site back BEAT.
Cosmetically the Epiphone Blackbird is identical to the Gibson original, but with a bolt-on single ply neck, solid mahogany body, different pickups and lower grade parts and manufacturing.
The Epiphone model still kept the 'opti-grab,' designed and made first by his bass technician Tim Luzzi, and single on/off switch of the Gibson original.
During his time with Mötley Crüe, Sixx became addicted to heroin.
