Rock luminaries SIXX:A.M. announce the release of their fifth studio album Vol. 2, Prayers For The Blessed, out November 18 via Eleven Seven Music. The album will be available for pre-order beginning October 14. Written and recorded at the same time as Vol. 1, Prayers For The Damned, released earlier this year, the album acts as a companion piece to the first chapter while simultaneously elevating the band’s sound in every area. Fans can sample songs from the album NOW via the album teaser:
From the outsider anthem “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—full track listing enclosed. “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 bring their music in front of audiences globally and perform the songs from Prayers For The Blessed. Taking their shows beyond the performance, the band made the announcement of Prayers For The Blessed during the first stop of their Canadian tour in Abbotsford, BC and will be shooting the video for “We Will Not Go Quietly” off the new album with iconic director, Wayne Isham, during their show in Edmonton, AB on Saturday, September 17. That same day, fans will also get a chance to meet the band during an in-store album signing at the West Edmonton Mall. Hosted by hmv Canada, the event will be limited to fans with an official event wristband, obtained by purchasing, or displaying hmv proof of purchase of Prayers For The Damned or album by another one of the bands on the tour (Five Finger Death Punch, Papa Roach, From Ashes To New). Further details on the in-store HERE.
SixxA.M. will continue to tour across Canada through September 18 with one dollar from each ticket sold on the tour going to the Canadian Red Cross to support their relief efforts. The trio will head back out on the road in October for their highly anticipated US arena tour with Five Finger Death Punch, Shinedown, and As Lions.
