So that is what our plan is. Will there be a VIXEN album finally? In fact there will likely be. However we have determined as an alternative of taking on a regular basis to actually do issues proper, which might imply all of us being collectively most likely in the identical place for fairly some time, and it is probably not conducive for all of us… Although myself, Julia [Lage, VIXEN bassist] and Britt [Lightning, a.k.a. Brittany Denaro, VIXEN guitarist], we’re all in California. However I am in Palm Springs now. It is solely a 45-minute flight. However Roxy [Petrucci, VIXEN drummer] is in Michigan. So for us to actually do a full file would imply us being locked away for a few month all collectively, and I might love to do this, however we do not actually have that luxurious. So as an alternative, we’re releasing singles. So my guess is inside the subsequent two months — I do not suppose it is gonna be longer than that — we’ll be bringing you, everybody a brand new VIXEN single. Britt goes in on Wednesday to put her solo guitars down. It is Fred Coury [CINDERELLA drummer] that’s producing. And, yeah, it is gonna be actually, actually enjoyable, and I can not await folks to listen to it. I laid my lead vocals down about two months in the past, and I am actually proud of it.

After which Britt and I, throughout COVID, we have been working collectively simply on Zoom, a minimum of making an attempt, ‘trigger there is a bizarre suggestions factor. However we wrote fairly a number of songs collectively. And so there’s one other tune that we’re hoping to get recorded very quickly, and that’s probably going to be with [producer] Toby Wright. So we have issues cooking. Nevertheless it did not take lengthy. Once we have been within the rehearsal studio collectively, engaged on music too, and that is when Share [Ross, longtime VIXEN bassist] was with us, [it was] simply tremendous pure. They’d lay down one thing and I might simply are available with one thing over it and Share would add a vocal line and a melody line and phrases. And it was simply simple peasy. We’ve not had that luxurious to do it with Julia but, however I am certain it’ll occur. And I do know Julia is a prolific songwriter herself, so I believe that we’ll get some new music going along with her as properly.”

4 months in the past, Ross introduced that she was “taking a hiatus” from VIXEN. Her substitute is Lage, previously of the Latin Grammy-nominated Brazilian rock group BARRA DE SAIA and spouse of Richie Kotzen.

When Ross made the information of her departure public on the aforementioned pre-Monsters Of Rock cruise live performance, she informed the group that “life acquired somewhat sophisticated” and that “one thing has to provide,” ensuing to her determination to “step away from VIXEN for some time.” She then launched her “wonderful” substitute and urged the VIXEN followers to “graciously” open their arms and welcome Lage to the group. At that time, Julia and her new bandmates launched into the monitor “Streets In Paradise” and performed the final couple of songs of the set with Ross watching the proceedings from the facet of the stage.

Throughout a February 11 look on SiriusXM‘s “Trunk Nation With Eddie Trunk”, Julia spoke about how she ended up hooking up with VIXEN, saying: “Share is taking a hiatus. She needs to do her factor [and focus on her real estate career]. She’s kicking ass. She’s gonna be writing and taking part in eternally — I imply, she’s a badass artist and bass participant, singer, every thing, songwriter. So I acquired the invitation, and I am, like, ‘Yeah, after all I am gonna be part of. In fact.'”

Requested how the opposite members of VIXEN reached out to her about becoming a member of the band, Julia stated: “Effectively, really, funnily sufficient, earlier than Britt joined VIXEN, me and her tried to place collectively a band, proper when she moved to L.A. However that did not work out, after which she joined VIXEN, and I used to be tremendous joyful for her. So, quick ahead, she really known as me a number of months in the past and she or he informed me in regards to the situation, and I used to be, like, ‘Yeah. I might love [to do it]. I imply, it is an honor for me to affix VIXEN.’ In order that occurred. And that was it. It was that fast. And I used to be simply, ‘Okay. Signal me in. The place can I am going?’ [Laughs]”

Lage additionally mirrored on her first efficiency with VIXEN on the pre-Monsters Of Rock cruise live performance, saying: “[Share played] somewhat greater than half of the set, after which [before] the final three songs, she stopped [the show] and talked about [her plans] somewhat bit and informed everyone what’s gonna occur and launched me. After which I stepped in and performed the final three songs with them. After which really she got here again for the final tune and sang together with us. It was simply very good. I believed it was very emotional too. It was a great way to transition.”

She would possibly come again; she would possibly [not]. I do not know. Each time they want me, I am there for them. And I am gonna do my greatest to honor her bass traces and every thing. And I am gonna be having with it, that is for certain.”
