Sixx:A.M. Announces Their “#ReasontoRise” Campaign

Award-winning hard rock trio, Sixx:A.M. recently released the first single from their upcoming international release, Vol. 1 Prayers for the Damned. “Rise” is currently overtaking the rock charts at #7 this week, and continuing to rise. The song implores listeners to open their eyes, go against the grain, and stand up for what they believe in. “Throughout history, some of the most dramatic changes have occurred when people reject the status quo and demand change, a sentiment completely encompassed by the musicianship, lyrics, and passion of “Rise,” Nikki Sixx expounds. James Michael goes on to further explain, “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.” While not a political band, Sixx:A.M. knows it is time for us all to unite for the changes we want to see happen in this world, and that we are ready and willing to spearhead the movement. As “Rise” urges:“Don’t let the status quo define you.”

During a recent interview live on CNN with Brooke Baldwin, Nikki Sixx urged people to look at their surroundings, notice the injustices, and stand up to them. Stand up to the current volatile presidential election, the increasingly horrifying heroin epidemic, terrorism, homelessness and so much more. Sixx says, “We all have our “#ReasontoRise” and the members of Sixx:A.M. are asking fans to share what makes them raise their fists and act for change.

Taking their heavy-hitting message on the road, fans can find the band kicking off their global festival circuit with a strong performance at Welcome to Rockville in Jacksonville, Florida on April 30th.

Hello, my name is Arlene Allen, and I love all things nerd: genre tv and movies, books, loud rock and roll music, kittens, conventions, books, graphic novels and superheroes, RPG and tabletop games, and did I say books? Oh, yes. I spent 25 years as a librarian (nerd) mainly working with youth (creating nerds), a number of years as a teacher (more nerd indoctrination). I have my own spawn, leveled up to 22 and my partner in nerdiness. As a nerdy writer, I have found a home at Talk Nerdy With Us.
