: Vains of Jenna formed in Falkenberg, Sweden in 2005. A mere 6 months later the band was in a Hollywood studio with Gilby Clarke (X-Guns N'Roses) cutting demos. Spring of 2006 they toured Europe but were back in Hollywood by summer where they attracted the attention of Bam Margera (MTV’s Viva La Bam/Jackass). He signed them on the spot & “Lit Up / Let Down” hit stores that fall (Filthy Note Records).
Several US tours ensued; including a 55 date tour with Poison. Add in the “Viva La Bands” tour (GWAR/Cradle of Filth) & a club run with Wednesday 13 (Murderdolls). The band played with The Donnas, Michael Monroe (Hanoi Rocks), Bullets N’ Octane, Dizzy Reed (GN’R), The Last Vegas, Viking Skull, CRASHDÏET & Sunset Strip legends Steel Panther.
In 2008 they stayed in LA & appeared on “Jackass 24” (MTV) & “LA INK” (Kat Von D). Their single “Enemy in Me” (Viva La Bands-2/Ferret Music) was featured on both. Fall 2009 they issued “The Art of Telling Lies" to 5 star reviews.
March 2010 the band evolved with a great new singer & front man in Jesse Forte. The band also welcomes a 2nd guitarist in fellow Swede Anton Sevholt. VoJ toured Europe as a 5 piece in the summer 2010 playing 40 shows. September 2010 they are back in the US & launched a new single/video for “Everybody Loves You When You’re Dead-2010 Mix”.
