Band leader Nikki Sixx recently wrapped up Mötley Crüe‘s Final Tour on December 31 at The Staples Center in Los Angeles, CA. Now, his full focus is back on Sixx.A.M. Guitarist Dj Ashba parted ways with Guns N’ Roses last July, and Sixx.A.M. have enlisted their first full-time drummer – Dustin Steinke (Bleeker).

Today, the band premiered their brand new single “Rise” from their upcoming studio LP PrayersSixx:A.M. Prayers For The Damned For The Damned. The disc is due out on April 29 via Eleven Seven Music. The album will be a two-part effort, with Vol. 2 set for release later this year. “SIXX:A.M. is in the most creative place of our careers,” says bassist Nikki Sixx. “For James, Dj and myself, we think it’s the perfect time to release so much quality music to our fans who’ve been supporting us over the last three albums.” Michael agrees, “The double-albums will leave no stone unturned in our quest to create important music and push the boundaries of rock.” Ashba adds, “We are on a mission to give our fans even more than they could have hoped for, both musically and visually.”
