TITANIA (photo), the new band featuring former VIXEN drummer Roxy Petrucci and her sister Maxine, have posted an audio sample of the title cut from their forthcoming self-titled debut album at this location (Windows Media, 1.16 MB). The song includes a special guest appearance by former MR. BIG/DAVID LEE ROTH bassist Billy Sheehan.
As previously reported, VIXEN's self-titled debut album has had its reissue date pushed back to November 16 from the previously announced November 2. VIXEN's follow-up album, "Rev It Up", will be re-released by EMI Music Catalog Marketing on November 2. The two albums have been fully remastered and will be in stores in time for the reunion of all of VIXEN's original members on VH1's popular show, "Bands Reunited".
VIXEN's self-titled debut was released in 1988, and fueled by heavy radio and MTV rotation of the single, "Edge of a Broken Heart", the album surpassed the gold sales mark in the U.S. and went on to sell over one million copies around the world. VIXEN's follow-up album, "Rev It Up", was released in 1990, and the singles "How Much Love" and "Love Is A Killer" spent some time on Billboard's Hot 100 Chart.
Next month, VIXEN's original members, Janet Gardner (vocals), Jan Kuehnemund (guitar), Share Pedersen (bass) and Roxy Petrucci (drums) will all appear together on VH1's "Bands Reunited" to reminisce about their start on L.A.'s Sunset Strip and their rise to fame in the late 1980s, before the onset of grunge in the early 1990s displaced metal at the top of the charts.
