Press release stuff :
Los Angeles, CA (October 2, 2023) - Legendary female rock band Vixen has released their new single, "Red", and premiered the track's official music video. Produced and written by Cinderella drummer Fred Coury and self-released, "Red" is available now to stream/download.
Vixen - Roxy Petrucci (drums), Lorraine Lewis (vocals), Britt Lightning (guitar), and Julia Lage (bass) - debuted the infectious rocker today (10/2) on SiriusXM's "Trunk Nation With Eddie Trunk." Regarding the single, original member Petrucci shares, "'RED' is a very dynamic and hard driving rocker of a song! Modern yet embraces the amazing harmonies and catchy choruses that are signature to the classic Vixen style. It's important to me we honor Jan and the band's 35-year legacy by staying true to the Vixen sound while melding in fresh new ideas. I feel confident we nailed it with our new release 'RED'!"
Coinciding with today's single release, Vixen premiered their music video for "Red" featuring the band rocking out on the Sunset Strip and Lewis belting out the catchy chorus: "You're taking me to the red, to the red. You're pushing all my buttons. To the edge, to the edge. I'm getting such a rush. So intense, so intense. Don't let it in. You're taking me into the red." Directed by Drew Johnston and Vicente Cordero, click here to watch the video for "Red."
