Nikki Sixx has teamed up with Corey Taylor, Joe Elliott, Brantley Gilbert, Ivan Moody, Slash, Tommy Vext and AWOLNATION to release a new track raising money for an organisation called the Global Recovery Initiative Foundation.

That organisation supports programmes that provide services to people recovering from ‘substance use disorders’, with a stated ambition of helping to create “a world where all people in recovery from SUDs have access to the services and support they need”.

The new track, called ‘Maybe It’s Time’, will also appear in the upcoming film ‘Sno Babies’, which is billed as “a gripping tale about the grim realities of opioid addiction and its effects on middle class suburbia”. Both the film and the fund-raising record are being put out by Better Noise.

Commenting on the record, 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”.

Meanwhile, Slipknot’s Corey Taylor adds: “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”.
