Vixen Vocalist Janet Gardner Leaves The Band

Vixen vocalist Janet Gardner has announced that she has decided to step down from the band, ending her fifth stint with the group. In a post on Facebook, the singer stated:

“After much soul searching and many sleepless nights, I have decided that it’s time for me to step aside and let Roxy (Petrucci, drummer) and Share (Ross, bassist) pursue their vision for the future of Vixen. Vixen will always have a very special place in my heart and I am incredibly grateful to have been a part of it. I would like to thank everyone for the amazing support over the years, and as Roxy and Share continue to keep the heart and soul of Vixen alive and well and I continue on my path, your continued support to all would be greatly appreciated. Love, Janet.”

Gardner joined Vixen in the eighties and appeared with the band in the movies “Hardbodies” and “The Decline Of Western Civilization II: The Metal Years,” as well as releasing three studio albums with the group, as well as the recent live album, “Live Fire” last year.

Protest The Hero Debut New Live Video For “Bloodmeat”

Protest The Hero debut a live video for their song “Bloodmeat” which was captured during their tenth anniversary tour for their 2008 album, “Fortress“.

Comments the group of the clip:

“We had our friend/foe Wyatt Clough join us on the Fartress 10 Year Anniversary Tour. Besides annoying us constantly, he also took some pretty great videos & photos of us rocking! We figured that 10 Years on, we might as well piece together a performance video of Bloodmeat – after all, the original video for BM was the first and only full performance video we ever made…

We hope you can spot yourself if you were able to make it to one of these shows. It was definitely a tour to remember for all of us.”
