Starring Janet Leigh Unleash New Video For 'Ex You'
October 6, 2009
The Canadian metal outfit Starring Janet Leigh
has just unleashed a brand new music video for the track "Ex You
" and are set to premier it on MySpace Metal. The track "Ex You
" is off their Ironclad Recordings
, which just came out May 12th 2009 to rave reviews from metalheads and critics alike. Metallers can check out the new video starting Today, Tuesday October 6th at MySpace Metal
and don't forget to check out the bands Myspace page
, which was recently redesigned and features music, tour dates, band news and more.
Here's what guitarist Matt Zadkovich
had to say about the video for Ex You
: “We wanted 'Ex You'
to be our first video because felt it to be a short & sweet, honest, in your face representation of the band and the album. It was filmed in our dank hole of a jam space, which we felt was perfect for the shoot to show who SJL
is and what we're all about it. We wanted the video to showcase how the live experience with SJL
is, shooting in a place we're all too familiar with. It was filmed over the course of 3 days with our good friend Mike Molloy
from Static Studios
here in Toronto. Mike's
input on this video was invaluable and we're stoked to release it. Enjoy!”

Formed in 2003, Canadian metal act Starring Janet Leigh began with creating music the band found both interesting and challenging with no compromise to musical integrity. Fusing death metal, hardcore, and modern jazz to create a sound that can best be described as progressively technical death metal, Starring Janet Leigh’s aural onslaught is a fine blend of artistry, fury, passion and precision. Combine the band’s musical fervor and dexterity with their unforgettable live show and what you end up with is no need for gimmicks or clichés.
Having played playing over 140 shows, touring extensively across Canada for the last 5 years, and playing dates with the likes of Candiria, The End, Cryptopsy, Circle Takes the Square, Cancer Bats, Beneath the Massacre, Despised Icon, and more, Starring Janet Leigh is definitely hard at work making its mark on the metal and hardcore community. From the moment Starring Janet Leigh get on stage, they leave an impression on you that not even time will minimize.
Starring Janet Leigh is now poised to unleash their debut full length album Spectrum on the world, which lands in stores and online everywhere May 12th, 2009. The band recorded Spectrum in June and September 2007 with Producer/Engineer Greg Dawson of BWC Studios who has previously worked with Mare (Hydrahead), The End (Relapse), Moneen (Vagrant) and many others. Mastering of Spectrum was handled by Alan Douches at West West Side who has worked with Converge, The End, The Dillinger Escape Plan, Mastodon, Unearth, and Nile just to name a few. Current fans and new comers to Starring Janet Leigh should expect to hear the band head in a much more death metal direction on Spectrum while still retaining their progressive and experimental roots.
“Compared with previous songs written, the cohesion and understandability of our music has allowed us to push the level of intensity and technicality to new levels while still maintaining a very listenable and atmospheric presence. We hope that listeners will be able to take away something new each and every time they listen to the album, while still knowing and feeling the songs as they did the first time they were heard” comments guitarist Matthew Zadkovich.
Expect to see Starring Janet Leigh across Canada, the USA and Europe in the near future.
