Swedish/American rockers VAINS OF JENNA have released the following statement:
“After seven years, we have amicably and mutually decided to end VAINS OF JENNA. There’s no drama behind the decision. We simply feel like it is time to move on in our lives and close this chapter. It has been a truly amazing journey for us over the years and we are grateful for the opportunity to do what we’ve done with this band. A huge thanks to everyone involved, all of our supporters, and, of course, all of our fans from around the world. We love you.”
VAINS OF JENNA singer Jesse Forte, who joined the band in 2010, recently replaced Oni Logan in LYNCH MOB, the group led by legendary former DOKKEN guitarist George Lynch.
Original VAINS OF JENNA vocalist Lizzy DeVine gave an interview to Neon Lights in December 2011 in which he revealed that he exited the group because he didn’t want to move back to Sweden along with his bandmates after spending several years in California.
After recruiting Forte as the band’s new singer, VAINS OF JENNA‘s main songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Nicki Kin stated about the group’s decision to carry on, “It’s not in my blood to stop doing what I started. I love music, I live music, and this is what I do.”
VAINS OF JENNA‘s first release with Forte was the “We Can Never Die” EP, which came out in 2010. A full-length album, “Reverse Tripped”, followed in April 2011 via Deadline (a division of Cleopatra Records).
