He’s a prolific musician, a member of one of the most successful rock bands of all time, a published author, and an entrepreneur — and now, thanks to his role in an upcoming indie film, Nikki Sixx can add “actor” to his long list of accomplishments too.
Good news, Slayer fans: Your long wait for new music is almost over. The band has announced plans to head into the studio next month to start laying down tracks for their twelfth studio album, and first since 2009′s ‘World Painted Blood.’

They warned you it was coming, and now Slipknot‘s Corey Taylor and Shawn “Clown” Crahan have unleashed their moviemaking debut on the world.
