Sixx AM’s first-ever tour of Sweden has been documented in a short video clip.

The Damned Of Scandinavia was filmed by Rocksverige, and follows bassist Nikki Sixx, guitarist DJ Ashba and vocalist James Michael on their June dates across the country, including their appearance at the Sweden Rock Festival.

It shows behind-the-scenes clips and live footage, accompanied by the title track from their latest album Prayers For The Damned Vol.1, which was released earlier this year.

Speaking of the album, Michael previously said: “There’s no denying that right now, globally, there’s a sense of crisis. And I think that speaks to our first single off this record, Rise, which really addresses that.

“We’re not a political band by any stretch of the imagination, but we are certainly a very socially conscious band. Things that matter to us on a personal level are happening on a global level.

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

Sixx AM will head out on tour again in September, with dates scheduled across Canada, the US and Japan.
