March 29th 2017

Chris Fayz has posted on Facebook about his departure from Vixen :
This past weekend marked a milestone; it was the first time in over 10 years the band Vixen took the stage with a keyboard player other than me. Long story short, I was no longer able to sustain the double-duty of tour manager and performer, (I just wanted to play keys) and unfortunately the band still needed someone to do both.
So, the torch was passed to another this past weekend in OH to a very capable Tyson Leslie. I wish him and all my sisters in Vixen all the best and a continuing thriving resurgence. It's been a long, fun road.

There is a new interview with Maxine at All Music & All Bands: Local, National, & Worldwide here.

Some pictures from the first show with the new lineup in Toledo at Rock the Arena II :
