Nikki Sixx + Sixx:A.M. Announce Updated 2017 Anniversary Editions of New York Times Bestselling Memoir + Soundtrack Album
SIXX:A.M. recently taped an exclusive radio special, hosted by Shinedown frontman Brent Smith, to chat about their current U.S. arena tour together, Sixx:A.M.’s new album Vol. 2, Prayers For The Blessed, and more.
SIXX:A.M. release their 5th studio album 'Vol. 2 Prayers for the Blessed' TODAY via Eleven Seven Music. Written and recorded at the same time as 'Vol. 1 Prayers For The Damned', which was released earlier this year, Volume 2 is an evolution from the first chapter that continues to push the band’s sound forward.
Fall’s most anticipated US Arena Rock Tour kicked off to raging crowds last night in Little Rock, AR. Co-headliners, Five Finger Death Punch and Shinedown blew fans away with their over-the-top productions and crowd pleasing sets. Rounding out the lineup are special guests, SIXX:A.M., and UK new comers, As Lions.
U.S. Arena Tour Kicks Off October 18th
SIXX:A.M. unleash the first new track, “We Will Not Go Quietly,” from their November 18 release, Vol. 2 Prayers for the Blessed TODAY! Fans, who pre-order the new album via iTunes HERE, will instantly receive a download of the song in their iTunes library. Exclusive 'Vol. 2 Prayers For The Blessed' album bundles available HERE. The official video for the outsider anthem also premieres today and was directed by iconic director Wayne Isham (Michael Jackson, Muse, Britney Spears). Filmed during their show in Edmonton, Alberta last month, the video offers viewers a “show-day-in-the-life-of” the band, in addition to their powerful on-stage energy. Watch it HERE.
“We Will Not Go Quietly” can also be heard as the theme song of A&E’s Gangland Undercover, which begins airing December 2 (check local listings).
"We Will Not Go Quietly" takes the call-to-action spirit of RISE to a whole new level. It reflects the raw passion with which mankind fights as some of our most basic human rights are being threatened. We are excited to share the song and video with everyone and hope that it inspires people to continue to strive to make the world a better place." -James Michael
Written and recorded at the same time as Vol. 1, Prayers For The Damned (April 2016), Vol. 2 Prayers For The Blessed acts as a companion piece to the first volume while simultaneously elevating the band's sound in every area. "This band has always found the light within the darkness and I think that's especially evident on this album," Ashba explains. Fans can sample songs from the album NOW via the album teaser HERE. From the lead single, "We Will Not Go Quietly", to the operatic show stopper, "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:A.M.'s sound, something that the band was able to develop by ramping up the amount of time they spent out on the road. "We really found ourselves onstage and it's influencing the way we write," says Nikki Sixx. "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.”
Touring three continents this year, Sixx:A.M. are excited to share their music with a global audience and perform the songs from Prayers For The Blessed. After wrapping up live performances across Canada and Japan, the band will embark on the U.S. leg of their tour which kicks off October 18 at Verizon Arena in Little Rock, AR and includes stops in Denver, Las Vegas, Anaheim and Philadelphia. Tickets for the tour can be purchased HERE.
