Sixx:AM announce album, single and tour details

Sixx:AM have announced details of their Prayers For The Damned Vol 1, their double album follow-up to 2014’s Modern Vintage. The album will be released on April 29. The band also release the first single from the album, Rise, today.

“Throughout history, some of the most dramatic changes have occurred when people reject the status quo and demand change,” says singer James 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.”

“Sixx:AM is in the most creative place of our careers,” adds Nikki Sixx. “For James, DJ and myself, 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 double-albums will leave no stone unturned in our quest to create important music and push the boundaries of rock,” says Michael, while DJ Ashba concludes, “We are on a mission to give our fans even more than they could have hoped for, both musically and visually.”

The band have also announced a series of tour dates (below), kicking off a with a show at the Welcome To Rockville Festival at the end of April. The band play Download Festival on June 11. Prayers For The Damned can be pre-ordered from Friday.
