Noooooooooooooooooooooo!!!! Wait, who? Oh yeah, those dudes who took their name from the “Psycho” movie poster. yeah, Starring Janet Leigh. They’re donesville. And yet, I think somehow the world will carry on.
“Due to recent member changes and a drastic shift in our sound, we decided it was only fair that Starring Janet Leigh go out in style with one last kick at the can through our homeland,” the band says in a statement; they’ll be touring Canada, and those dates follow after the jump. “There are a lot of bands out there that keep the same name when they are clearly no longer the same band, and we’ve decided to take a different route than that.”
Wait…what’s this? “We all love what we did with SJL over the years and are sincerely going to miss it. The new album in the making is taking a very different direction than the previous release, but we’re sure fans of SJL and fans of progressive metal will love it! Thanks to everyone who supported SJL the years, it means the world to us. Be sure to make it out to one of the final shows if you can, this tour is gonna be a BANGER!”
So, I’m confused. Are they done, or are they just changing their name to Banger? I DON’T GET IT! Oh, here are those Canadian tour dates. For you Canadians.
