Sixx:A.M. Announce New Song and Album Details
Sixx:A.M.– featuring bassist Nikki Sixx, guitarist Dj Ashba, and vocalist/producer James Michael – have announced they will release a new single, “Rise,” on March 1. The song will be from a forthcoming first volume of a double album, coming this year.
Of the single’s message, Sixx said, “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.”
Michael added, “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.”
Ashba continued, “’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.”
The band will also be touring across the U.S. Check out Michael’s video below, where he announces the launch of a demand campaign video message, urging fans to request the band perform in their city.
