Sweden's VAINS OF JENNA has officially replaced WHITE LION as the support act on the POISON/RATT summer co-headining tour. A complete list of dates can be found at this location.
VAINS OF JENNA's full-length debut album "Lit Up / Let Down", was the first release on skateboarding legend Bam Margera's new label Filthy Note. Bam (also of MTV's "Viva La Bam" and "Jackass" fame) says he signed the group on the spot after seeing their bombastic live show: "This band is so good I had to start a label just to put their record out."
VAINS OF JENNA — Lizzy Devine (vocals/guitars), Nicki Kin (lead guitars), JP White (bass) and Jacki Stone (drums) — formed in the small town of Falkenberg, Sweden in January 2005. In spring of 2006 the band toured Southern Europe and spent one month in the U.K. winning over critics and fans by night while playing gigs and sleeping in their van in an alley by day.
WHITE LION was reportedly removed from the POISON/RATT tour due to a threat of legal action by former WHIE LION guitarist Vito Bratta in connection to the use of the WHITE LION name.
WHITE LION vocalist Mike Tramp recently made an appearance on Eddie Trunk's "Friday Night Rocks" radio show on New York's Q104.3 FM to respond to an interview with Vito Bratta in which Vito expressed interest in reuniting with his former band. While Tramp didn't rule out the possibility of a collaboration with Vito, he made it clear during his appearance on "Friday Night Rocks" that he wanted Bratta to take the first step and stop making excuses for why he has remained musically inactive for the past 15 years.
