Mötley Crüe founder Nikki Sixx has gathered up a whole bunch of artists for a collaboration on his band, SIXX:A.M‘s new single ‘Maybe It’s Time‘ to draw attention to the opioid crisis in the US and, in tun, raise funds and save lives in the process.
The track features Corey Taylor, Joe Elliott, Brantley Gilbert, Ivan Moody, Slash, AWOLNATION & Tommy Vext and artist royalties from the song are being donated to The Global Recovery Initiatives Foundation (GRI) to support those in early recovery, with a matching contribution from Better Noise Music.
The song itself will be featured on the movie Sno Babies which is about the grim realities of teenage addiction and its effects on a middle-class suburban town. The soundtrack also features bands like Bad Wolves, Escape The Fate, From Ashes To New and more!
On the collaboration, Nikki Sixx says:
“I am proud to bring together these artists to help raise funds for the Global Recovery Initiative Foundation. The opioid epidemic did not go away when the pandemic came along. Just the opposite…those in early recovery became even more at risk than before so it’s more important now than ever to raise awareness and support them. I really believe that united we can make a difference and save lives.”
Corey Taylor added to the conversation revealing:
“It’s a real issue… It’s affecting young people more and more every year, so it’s very, very important for all of us to pitch in and do our part, especially some of us who have lived through it…those of us who have survived… it’s the least I can do,”
