Stephen J. Cohen/Getty ImagesSixx:A.M. vocalist James Michael and guitarist DJ Ashba have announced that they’re launching a new band called Pyromantic.

Speaking about Pyromantic in a Facebook video over the weekend, Michael says the band’s music is “heavy as f***, but it’s also got these really, really pop melodies.”

“All I can say is I know you’re gonna dig it,” he continues. “It’s some of the most special stuff I’ve ever heard.”

Pyromantic is expected to release new music this year.

Along with Michael and Ashba, Sixx:A.M. also features Motley Crue‘s Nikki Sixx. The band, which is currently on hiatus, has released five full-length albums, the most recent of which is 2016’s Prayers for the Blessed.
