Commented the band: "Due to recent member changes and a drastic shift in our sound, we decided it was only fair that STARRING JANET LEIGH go out in style with one last kick at the can through our homeland.

"There are a lot of bands out there that keep the same name when they are clearly no longer the same band, and we've decided to take a different route than that.

"We all love what we did with STARRING JANET LEIGH over the years and are sincerely going to miss it.

"The new album in the making is taking a very different direction than the previous release, but we're sure fans of STARRING JANET LEIGH and fans of progressive metal will love it!

"Thanks to everyone who supported STARRING JANET LEIGH the years; it means the world to us.

"Be sure to make it out to one of the final shows if you can. This tour is gonna be a BANGER!"

STARRING JANET LEIGH's latest album, "Spectrum", came out in May 2009 via Ironclad Recordings (Trevor Phipps of UNEARTH's label). The CD was recorded in June and September 2007 with producer/engineer Greg Dawson of BWC Studios, who has previously worked with MARE (Hydrahead), THE END (Relapse), MONEEN (Vagrant) and many others. Mastering of "Spectrum" was handled by Alan Douches at West West Side who has worked with CONVERGE, THE END, THE DILLINGER ESCAPE PLAN, MASTODON, UNEARTH, and NILE, just to name a few.
