RAT PAK RECORDS SET TO RELEASE VIXEN "LIVE FIRE"!

Classic 80’s rock veterans Vixen will release “Live Fire” via Rat Pak Records on July 6, 2018. Mixed by Michael Wagener, “Live Fire” features 12 live tracks and was recorded at Chicago's legendary Arcada Theater during the group’s successful 2017 tour.  In addition to the classic Vixen songs, the effort also includes a newly recorded studio version of “You Ought to Know By Now”, an all new studio acoustic version of their hit song “Edge of a Broken Heart” and a live version of a previously unreleased track called “Big Brother”.

 

Regarding the track “You Ought to Know by Now”, vocalist Janet Gardner says, “It gives you a taste of the classic Vixen days with a revitalized energy and passion!”...and bassist Share Ross adds, “This song is the ultimate connection between our history with Jan and our future!”

 

Speaking of the live material drummer Roxy Petrucci comments, “It’s really cool to see so many old and new fans enjoying these classic songs as we perform them live, so it only made sense to release this live album!” Guitarist Britt Lightning adds, “This album really captures all the spontaneity and energy of the band’s live performance.”


Vixen first burst onto the scene in the 80’s and achieved large scale commercial success with songs like “Edge of A Broken Heart”, “Cryin” and “Love Made Me”. The band has sold over a million albums, had six #1 videos on MTV, four songs on Billboard’s Top 100 and is the only platinum selling all female 80’s act. The band continues to write new music and tour with their eyes set firmly on the future!

 

Vixen “Live Fire” is available in various formats and bundle configurations including a ltd white vinyl pressing with an alternate track sequence and also an Ultimate Fan Bundle that includes a personal “Thank-you” phone call from Janet Gardner, exclusively available at www.ratpakrecords.com/vixen

Why?

Why not? Do they have a live release I'm unaware of? If so, then I'm with Alpha. But if it's their first, go for it. However, if you say two "new" tracks at least make it two new tracks.

Only live album to my knowledge was when it was Jan on guitar and a bunch of hired hands.

As for the why, I think that is obvious. A live album is a good way for them to make money without any huge outlay.

You might as well ask why any band releases a live album.

Vixen wasn't all the popular in their prime. Even less so now.

That's why I asked why?

Who is going to buy this?

If this were a live album from 1988/1989 with the originals, I could understand it.

I ended up giving this an unexpected run-through the other day. It's a live album which pretty much says it all, but it's pretty solid. Anyway, who cares. The new song? I actually think it's quite good. Much better than anything I've heard from them since the first two albums. I'd actually be genuinely interested in an album along the lines of 'You Ought To Know By Now.'
