SIXX:A.M.: 'Prayers For The Damned' Lyric Video

August 25, 2016

The official video for "Prayers For The Damned", the title track of the new double album from SIXX:A.M., can be seen below.

The first volume of "Prayers For The Damned" was released on April 29 via Eleven Seven Music.

SIXX:A.M. is the band featuring MÖTLEY CRÜE bassist Nikki Sixx alongside ex-GUNS N' ROSES guitarist DJ Ashba and vocalist James Michael.

The "Prayers For The Damned" song showcases the trio's ability to create a melodic anthem, while masterfully incorporating their rock spirit and musicianship that all three members are known for.

The second leg of the SIXX:A.M. world tour will kick off with an extensive Canadian run this September followed by a stop in Japan, and ending the year with a massive U.S. tour with FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH and SHINEDOWN, starting in October.

In a recent interview with The Aquarian Weekly, James stated about the SIXX:A.M. songwriting process: "Interestingly enough, even though the band had evolved significantly over the years, both as far as musicianship and sound and dynamic, the songwriting process itself has stayed pretty much the same. It's the three of us getting together in a room picking up instruments and talking. We talk a lot before we even start writing, discussing subject matters, and working through melody ideas, working through riff ideas and we all bring in ideas. Sometimes DJ will bring in a really killer riff and that will inspire something else, but we've always maintained that chemistry between the three of us. So, the three of us are equal songwriters. That's what we do. We've all built careers writing songs on our own, so when we bring it together, we just complement one another, and the interesting thing about that, that I've noticed as a producer, because I've produced a lot of bands… I've produced a lot of bands at the beginning of their career, and I produced a handful of bands towards the end of their career, and to watch that transition of what happens is very interesting."

He continued: "What happens is a young band, they form, they swear their undying love to each other, they're going to be brothers forever, they write a record, hopefully they get a record deal, and then they put a record out, and lo and behold, they get a hit song and one of the worst things happens. The checks start rolling in. And what happens when people start opening up their checks, and one guy looks at his, and his eyes open up and he has this great big smile on his face, and the other guy opens his and he kind of starts frowning and looking at the other guy wondering what's the difference here. That's when they realize that songwriting is where it's at, and what happens then, after the next record, then the record after that, it becomes a competition, but the exact opposite happens with SIXX:A.M. We become less precious about our own ideas and are more excited about welcoming the other ideas. So, it's partially because we've all been able to build successful careers outside of SIXX:A.M., so we're not doing SIXX:A.M. for the money, we're doing it for the art. And I think that plays a big part in it. So when we get together, we're actually more excited about the idea that the other guy is going to bring in. I think that just really makes for an incredibly inspiring and creative and supportive process."
