Full album streams seem to be a new fad that a lot of internet savvy people are jumping on. It can be in the form of a Soundcloud widget, a YouTube playlist, or even a single YouTube video. This often gives record labels a chance to promote new artists and for people to subscribe to their social media pages. So hopefully this provides you access to some new music, bands, and/or artists. Cheers!
PS - Feel free to send us an email if you have any albums you think you should be on this list or a new one coming out we missed. We're always listening!

Sixx:A.M. was formed in 2007 in Los Angeles, California by Nikki Sixx, DJ Ashba, and James Michael. This is also the main side project for bassist Nikki Sixx, who is also the bassist of rock group Motley Crue. Since it's inception, the group has released three studio albums and tours regularly throughout North America. Their latest album "Modern Vintage" was released on October 7th, 2014 via Eleven Seven Music. The album was produced by vocalist James Michael (and has also produced artsists such as Papa Roach, Scorpions, The Exies, and Inhale). The lineup for Modern Vintage is as follows:
Nikki Sixx – Bass/Vocals | James Michael – Vocals/Guitar/Keyboards/Drums

DJ Ashba is sensational throughout with his silky guitar skills and brilliantly placed solo’s, Nikki Sixx is Nikki Sixx; one of the best bassists in rock history and James Michael is reveling in being a captivating frontman. A special mention also has to go to Jeff Fabb (Black Label Society, In This Moment) who was brought in to play the drums, and his performance is sublime.
Millions of fans will still be coming to terms with the soon-to-be closure of the Mötley Crüe circus, but if Modern Vintage is anything to go by, Nikki Sixx won’t be going anywhere and neither will Sixx:A.M. because, this right here, is the best album of 2014. -Hard Rock Haven
Modern Vintage is bombastic, dude-rock tailor made for the county fair and that’s not a snarky dismissal, it’s just a matter of fact and another way of saying the record totally rules.
With Modern Vintage, Nikki Sixx is not making a soundtrack to a heroin nightmare; instead it’s more suited to a case of Bud and a pick up truck. Not that there’s anything wrong with that: in fact it may be all too right. -Metal Injection
