Classic ’80s rock veterans VIXEN have released a video for the song “You Ought To Know By Now”. The track is featured on the band’s new live album, “Live Fire”, which was released earlier this month via Rat Pak Records. The clip was filmed live on June 17 at the Whisky A Go Go in West Hollywood, California and was produced and directed by Shane Stanley.
VIXEN‘s current lineup features three of the members that recorded the band’s 1988 self-titled debut and its follow-up, 1990’s “Rev It Up”.
More than four years after announcing its reunion, VIXEN has yet to begin tracking its comeback studio album. Bassist Share Pedersen told Finland’s Kaaos TV about the band’s plans for a new studio disc: “It’s gone back and forth and in and out and around a few times, because when we initially got together, we were getting together and waiting for Jan, our original guitar player, and then she died of cancer. And so we carried on with Gina [Stile], and so then we started writing with that, and then band things change and stuff happens, and we decided to wish her the best and now we’re moving forward with Britt [Brittany Denaro a.k.a. Britt Lightning].
So, rather than waiting to write another album, we decided to [release a] live [record] first for right now. And now we’ll start putting ideas around together. We had to kind of get used to Britt as well, and she’s phenomenal and she plays great and everything. So now we’re gonna start putting our heads together and riffs and thoughts and lyrics.”
