Sixx AM reveal Prayers For The Blessed details

Sixx AM

Sixx AM have revealed further information on upcoming album Prayers For The Blessed, the companion to Prayers For The Damned.

The 11-track title is to be released on November 18, with pre-orders commencing on October 14. The band will shoot a live video for lead track We Will Not Go Quietly this weekend in Abbotsford, Canada.

Eleven Seven Music say: “From the outsider anthem We Will Not Go Quietly to the operatic showstopper Maybe It’s Time and groove-driven, radio-ready rocker That’s Gonna Leave A Scar, Prayers For The Blessed displays the many sides of Sixx AM’s sound – something the band was able to develop by ramping up the amount of time they spent on the road.”

Mainman Nikki Sixx says: “We really found ourselves onstage, and it’s influencing the way we write. We started focusing on our music, not only as songwriters and lyricists, but also stayed conscious of what would transfer over live to the audience.”

Prayers For The Blessed was recorded during the same sessions that led to Prayers For The Damned, which arrived in April.The band stress it wasn’t a case of just laying down too many tracks, but that they found they had a lot to say.

Frontman James Michael said in May: “We found that during writing and recording, we were so inundated by things going on around the world that really require some attention. I think it’s safe to say that the world feels kind of wounded right now and is need of repair.

“People feel desperate, people feel scared, people feel angry, people are dissatisfied with leadership. If you’re an artist, you can’t just ignore that.”

Sixx AM are on tour across North America until December – full dates below.
