In the summer of 2006 they attracted the attention of Bam Margera (MTV’s Viva La Bam/Jackass) who signed the band on the spot. Their debut “Lit Up-Let Down” hit stores on Filthy Note Records (October 2006). A half dozen US tours followed; 55 date amphitheatre tour supporting Poison & Ratt. “Viva La Bands - II” theatre tour (GWAR/Cradle of Filth) and a US club run with Wednesday 13 (Murderdolls).
Over the next 24 months the band turned more industry heads at the Sunset Strip Music Festival in Los Angeles, SxSW in Austin Texas, Hempfest in Seattle & the annual Sweden Rock Festival in Sweden. Add in relentless club tours in the US & Europe! In a few years time, the band had performed over 300 live shows globally. VAINS OF JENNA spent 2008 writing and recording but made TV appearances on “Jackass 24” (MTV) & “LA INK” (Kat Von D). The bands track “Enemy in Me” (Viva La Bands-2 Soundtrack/Ferret Music) was featured on both. In the fall of 2009 they released “The Art of Telling Lies" to rave 5 star reviews and did another 50+ date US club tour.
March 2010 the band evolved with a shocking yet welcome change! The band introduces Jesse Forte as their new lead singer & front man for VAINS of JENNA. The group wasted no time and flew to Europe in April 2010 to embark on a 40 date European tour
Nicki Kin (lead guitar), JP White (bass) & Jacki Stone (drums) took their new voice (Jesse Forte) and hit the studio in July 2010. The outcome was their E.P. “We Can Never Die.” With no time to rest, the band toured South America (Brazil/Argentina) for the first time in the fall of 2010 and returned to the US.
It’s 2011 and the band has finished “Reverse Tripped” for Deadline/E1 Records. The 14 song special edition release includes the hit single “F**k You” with accompanying video. The song made famous by Cee Lo Green has become a pop rock hit for the band in mere week’s time. “Reverse Tripped” hits stores April 5th 2011. A US tour kicks off April 30th 2011.
