Sixx:A.M, featuring bassist Nikki Sixx, guitarist DJ Ashba, and vocalist/producer James Michael, have announced the arrival of their new single, Rise. It’s from the upcoming first volume of a double album, Prayers For The Damned, to be released on 29 April 2016 via Eleven Seven Music/Sony Music Australia.
“We are not a political band but we are extremely reflective. During the making of this album, we were under the same media siege as the rest of the world, so Rise came out of that and hopefully reminds people that we all have a voice.” – Nikki Sixx
“Throughout history, some of the most dramatic changes have occurred when people reject the status quo and demand change. 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.” – James Michael
“Rise, to me, is a message of empowerment. It will take on a personal meaning to everyone who hears it, but the message is the same. Whether it’s an individual trying to overcome their own struggles, or a nation as a whole, we can all rise above the negativity, if we stand up for what we believe in” – DJ Ashba
