The black-and-white performance clip has been tied to the City of Hope charitable organization, which raises money for the research, treatment and education for the fights against cancer, diabetes, and HIV/AIDS. Initially fans were shown a snippet of the video with the promise to unlock the full clip for those who donated to the charity’s City Of Hope Radiothon fundraiser.
The song, like many of Sixx: A.M.’s tracks, comes from a personal place. In this case, the chorus motivates the listener into action with the lyrics, “Are you with me now / Come back from the dead / You’ve been inside your head for too long / Are you with me now / From the places that scare you / Come on I dare you / Are you with me?”
The band joined forces with Ryan Seacrest, Vince Gill and Sugarland in supporting the City of Hope organization, and more information can be found on the organization at their website.
Sixx: A.M. have remained primarily a studio band, as the members have other projects. Nikki Sixx will rejoin Motley Crue this summer for a co-headlining trek with KISS; guitarist DJ Ashba is currently out on the road with Guns N’ Roses; and singer James Michael continues to writing and produce for other artists.
