New York, NY (Top40 Charts/ Eleven Seven Music Group) SIXX:A.M. has officially unleashed their global release, Vol. 1 Prayers For The Damned, with its counterpart, Vol. 2, set to come out later this year. Vol. 1 has shot straight to #1 on the Australian iTunes Rock Chart on its first day out down under. The overarching message of the album? To open your eyes, stand up against the grain, and reject the status quo, which can clearly be reflected in the album's call-to-action, empowering single, "Rise",continuing to climb the Rock Charts at #6, and only rising. Putting their money where their mouths are, the band has proudly launched the #ReasonToRise Campaign, offering fans a forum to share their personal experiences. Fans can head here now to learn more. Using this week's recognition, the band has also chosen to bring awareness to YouTube's unfair artist compensation practices. YouTube is the #1 streaming platform for music and SIXX:A.M., alongside other artists, want to ensure the future of musicians' ability to earn a livelihood from their art. Read the band's open letter in full here and take a peek at their recent interviews with Forbes and CNBC earlier this week. 2016 is the year that SIXX:A.M. rises to the occasion, ready to bring their powerful message, and unparalleled musicianship across the globe, touring nonstop with bands including, Shinedown, Five Finger Death Punch, Disturbed, and many more.

Produced and engineered by vocalist, James Michael, Vol.1 Prayers For The Damned is characterized by towering riffs and broad brushstrokes of melody. It's also an album possessed of philosophically hopeful overtones. As showcased in the album's artwork designed by guitarist, Dj Ashba, while there are cracks in the cement, an introspective look at the broken angel's raised hands can suggest that there is hope for a better tomorrow. It is that very aspiration for a brighter future that enables the band to take on dark topics and channel these sentiments into optimism and urgency for fans of music to be the changes they want to see in the world. This is all reflected in their #ReasonToRise Campaign, an initiative launched around the band's current single, "Rise", as SIXX:A.M. continue to guide their fans to be critical of their surroundings.

Formed in 2007 on the streets of Los Angeles, SIXX:A.M.'s mission has remained steadfast: to provide iconic, hard rock to the masses that boasts unrivaled musicianship and a loyal legion of devoted fans beyond compare. Comprised of vocalist James Michael, guitarist Dj Ashba, and bassist Nikki Sixx, SIXX:A.M. is truly a culmination of each artist's talents, taking from each of their names (Sixx, Ashba, and Michael). In addition to providing unparalleled vocals, Michael is also a highly acclaimed producer, having worked with Kelly Clarkson, Halestorm, and Papa Roach, and boasts the producing and mixing credits for all of the SIXX:A.M. albums released. To date, the band has released 3 studio albums; The Heroin Diaries Soundtrack (2007), This Is Gonna Hurt (2011), and Modern Vintage (2014), and 3 EP's; X-Mas In Hell (2008), Live Is Beautiful (2008), and 7 (2011). The band has come a long way since their live debut in 2007 at Crash Mansion, performing 5 songs off of The Heroin Diaries Soundtrack, an audible, introspective recall of Sixx's autobiography, The Heroin Diaries: A Year in the Life of a Shattered Rock Star. A hero for the cause, Nikki spoke on the epidemic in Washington during National Recovery Day, creating an even deeper, more personable bond with the artists. In combination with its success and topical importance, The Heroin Diaries is currently being made into a Broadway play, further proving its topic's impact and importance to society. With so much to say and a passion for performing, Sixx penned his next book, This Is Gonna Hurt, that was soon accompanied by an album of the same name. Both books received notoriety as New York Times bestsellers. This began the band's longstanding relationship with their fans that has been built off of trust, relatability, and honesty, in combination with their heavy-hitting rock anthems. Since, the trio have performed alongside rock mainstays such as Mötley Crüe, and headlined a nearly sold out 2015 US tour with special guest Apocolyptica. SIXX:A.M. now face one of the busiest years of their career confident and undaunted, packing 2016 with the release of a double album in two installments, kicking off a global tour, co-headlining nearly all of the major US rock festivals including Welcome To Rockville, Carolina Rebellion, Rocklahoma as well as playing the biggest European summer festivals such as Download Festival, Rock am Ring, Sweden Roc Gods of Metal and many more. Having sold over 1 million albums globally, SIXX:A.M. has set the bar for rock excellence and this year will solidify their spot as genre royalty.

Eleven Seven Music Group is one of the world's leading independent music companies. Founded in 2006 by Tenth Street Entertainment CEO Allen Kovac, the company is the global home for artists including Mötley Crüe, Papa Roach, Nothing More, Escape The Fate, SIXX:A.M., and HELLYEAH as well as Five Finger Death Punch outside of the U.S. In 2014, the company vaulted five artists to the Mediabase Active Rock year-end radio chart and multiple acts to the Billboard year-end charts including Mainstream Rock Songs, Hard Rock Albums, and Rock Airplay Songs. Among its many accolades, Eleven Seven Music received the title of Billboard's "Rock Label of the Year" in 2010, was named FMQB's "Rock Label of the Year" in 2008, enjoyed RIAA double platinum success with Buckcherry's 15 in 2006, and achieved a Top 5 debut for Mötley Crüe's Saints of Los Angeles. With a staff of dedicated and devoted trailblazers, the label supports its roster with a range of integrated services including marketing, promotion, publicity, sales, digital, licensing, and touring.
