Vixen77 Share Last Single Before Album Release ”Royalty”

After a run of ripping singles, Philly-based women punk rockers Vixen77 are set to release their highly anticipated debut album Easy Access this Friday (10/14) via Megaforce Records (Metallica, Anthrax, Meat Puppets, Dirty Honey, Plush, etc.). The album features twelve tumultuous tracks recorded in an impressive seventy-two hours at Retro City Studios (Mannequin Pussy, Mitski, Lizzo, The Menzingers) that navigate life through love and rock ‘n’ roll, and have already earned support from KEXPSiriusXMWXPN and beyond. The band will play a hometown release show at Johnny Brenda’s on ​​Friday, October 21. Tickets are available here.
Ahead of the release, the band has shared one last peek into the project with the rocking single “Royalty,” where they recount their difficulties breaking through the male-dominated industry and take ownership of their throne. “‘Royalty’ is about feeling a sense of purpose in playing music and doing it on your own terms,” the band says. “It’s about loving and playing music your whole life and centering so much of your energy on it. It’s also a good momento mori and reminder to live in the moment because we’re here for a short time, so do what you love.” Buzzy guitars ebb and flow with the snarling lyrics, making the track a prime example of their fresh take on classic punk, also seen across previous singles “Evade,” “Some Days,” “Record Store,” and “Your Love.”

Vixen77 is appearing on WXPN’s Philly music showcase series The Key Studio Sessions next week. Their set included a cover of ZZ Top’s “Tush,” as well as highlights from Easy Access. The session broadcasts on Tuesday night, October 18th at 8 p.m. ET, and folks can tune in at 88.5 FM in the Philly region or streaming anywhere around the world at A full archive of session videos will debut on our website via WXPN’s NPR Music Live Sessions channel on Wednesday, October 19th.

A bona fide punch in the face, Vixen77 channels influences such as The Stooges, The Runaways, and Johnny Thunders into a snarling brand of Philadelphia punk rock ‘n’ roll. The band is the brainchild of guitarist Caitlin D’Agostino, who dreamt of playing in an all-women rock band since she was in high school. First playing in the Philly punk scene for a few years, she decided to put her dream in motion in late 2018 and formed Vixen77, the name a reference to woman energy and the musical influence of late-seventies punk.
