Singer James Michael explains the motivation behind the EP, “We were inspired to create 7 after experiencing the incredible reaction people had to the messages within the songs on both The Heroin Diaries Soundtrack and This Is Gonna Hurt.  Our goal with this EP was to take songs that our fans were already intimately familiar with and present them in a way that shifted the focus. I’ve always loved hearing a song with all of the production stripped away because it exposes the raw emotions that were present at its infancy…7 will give our fans a glimpse into the heart of what drives Sixx:AM.”

  1. Lies of the Beautiful People (Acoustic)
  2. This is Gonna Hurt (Acoustic)
