Sixx:A.M. Announce ‘Prayers for the Damned’ Album and Tour, Release First Single, ‘Rise’
Sixx:A.M. are hitting fans with a pair of new albums — and they're kicking things off in a big way this spring with the release of the first installment, Prayers for the Damned Vol. 1.
Scheduled for an April 29 release, Prayers finds the group arriving at what bassist Nikki Sixx describes as "the most creative place of our careers." Speaking for himself, singer James Michael and guitarist DJ Ashba, Sixx explains, "We think it’s the perfect time to release so much quality music to our fans who’ve been supporting us over the last three albums."
The album is preceded by lead-off single "Rise," which you can hear below while checking out the complete track listing. "Throughout history, some of the most dramatic changes have occurred when people reject the status quo and demand change," says Michael. "‘Rise’ is about how we find ourselves at a global tipping point and how it is our duty as citizens of this world to come together, communicate with one another and rise up to demand more of ourselves and our leaders."
The band is scheduled to begin its next tour April 30, when it travels to Jacksonville for the first in a lengthy series of dates, all listed below, that will keep the group on the road at least through late July. "The double albums will leave no stone unturned in our quest to create important music and push the boundaries of rock," enthuses Ashba. "We are on a mission to give our fans even more than they could have hoped for, both musically and visually."
