Iconic rock band Sixx:A.M., have released lyric video for “Pray For Me” off their upcoming HITS album via Better Noise Music. The track originally appeared on the highly successful The Heroin Diaries Soundtrack. It is the second lyric video to be unveiled from the HITS project, a retrospective celebration of the band’s biggest hits, new tracks and fan-favorite songs.

Sixx:A.M. are releasing the album as a companion piece to Sixx’s upcoming memoir The First 21: How I Became Nikki Sixx. After 21 years of sobriety, Sixx, also a founding member of the legendary music group Mötley Crüe, is incredibly passionate about his craft and an open book about his life in rock and roll. In the memoir, Sixx fills in the earlier parts of his fascinating true-life story, telling the inspirational story of his first 21 years, how Frank Feranna became Nikki Sixx. Combining his work as a writer and a musician, The First 21 continues Sixx’s tradition of setting the soundtrack to his own life, offering multi-layered pieces of art.

In 2007, Sixx:A.M. released The Heroin Diaries Soundtrack, alongside Sixx’s best-selling memoir The Heroin Diaries: A Year in the Life of a Shattered Rock Star, introducing the concept of a book soundtrack into popular culture. Both the book and the album were successes upon release, with the book instantly becoming a New York Times bestseller in its first week, selling out in bookstores around the U.S. The album spawned the #1 single “Life Is Beautiful” while simultaneously receiving critical acclaim and eventually achieving Gold certification in the U.S.

I have an unhealthy obsession with bad horror movies, the song Wanted Dead Or Alive and crap British game shows. I do this not because of the sex, drugs and rock 'n' roll lifestyle it affords me but more because it gives me an excuse to listen to bands that sound like hippos mating.
