Vocalist Lorraine Lewis has resurrected the Femme Fatale moniker, and has put together an all-female band this time around. Guitarists Nita Strauss (Consume The Fire, the Iron Maidens) and Courtney Cox (The Iron Maidens), bassist Janis Tanaka (Fireball Ministry, L7), keyboardist Katt Scarlett and drummers Rachael Rine and Athena Lee (sister to Motley Crue's Tommy Lee), will join Lewis for their upcoming appearance on the Monsters Of Rock Cruise from March 16 to 20th. The band are also currently writing for a brand new studio album.

Lewis was recently interviewed on Ron Keel's Streets Of Rock & Roll Radio Show and stated, "I have decided for 2013 to put a whole new line-up together. We lost our guitar player Bill D'Angelo about five years ago, he passed away, and all of the boys since then are doing different things. I just thought, you know what, I just want to do the all-girl thing. So I have a hot line-up of all chicks and I'm very excited"

Regarding new music Lewis continued, "We've been working on some new riffs. Courtney's been bringing riffs to rehearsals but my primary focus right now is making sure that the songs on the 'Femme Fatale' CD sound really crushing. Years ago I sang a song on the 'Don't Tell Mom The Babysitter's Dead' soundtrack, a song called "Chains", so we've added that to the set as well and then a couple of other surprises that people are going to dig."

Femme Fatale was formed in 1987 in Albuquerque, New Mexico. Later on that year, the band moved to Los Angeles and signed a recording contract with a subsidiary of MCA Records after a well-received showcase. The band's 1988 self-titled release, produced by Jim Faraci and Tom Werman for MCA Records, reached #141 on the Billboard charts and spawned two unforgettable breakout videos -- "Waiting For The Big One" and "Fallin' In And Out Of Love". Femme Fatale is known for their mega-watt performances, have toured across the country and overseas and were featured in all of heavy metal's top selling magazines.

As of late, Lewis has served as the co-producer of the Fuse TV show 'Ex-Wives of Rock', which features Bobbi Brown (Cherry Pie video, Jani Lane's ex), Sharise Neil (Vince Neil's ex), Susan Dixon (Jerry Dixon of Warrant ex) and Athena Lee (drummer James Kottack of the Scorpions ex), who is now the drummer in Femme Fatale as mentioned earlier.

Great to have the sexy and rocking Lewis and Femme Fatle back!
