Jack Off Jill To Record With Chris Vrenna

Jack Off Jill is linking up with producer (and former Nine Inch Nails member) Chris Vrenna for its second album.

The group has replaced outgoing guitarist Scott Mitchell Putesky (see "Scott Mitchell Putesky Leaves Jack Off Jill, Contemplates Spooky Kids Release") with the band's original member, Michelle Inhell. Inhell joins lead singer Jessicka, bassist Robin Moulder, second guitarist Clinton Walsh (formerly of Psychotica), and drummer Norm Block (formerly of the defunct Plexi) on drums, replacing the now-departed Claudia.

The band "road tested" some of its new material while touring with Marilyn Manson earlier this year and is scheduled to start pre-production in July and record in August.

Former Nine Inch Nails drummer and programmer Vrenna is squeezing the sessions into a full slate of commitments. He's currently working on his own solo project, Tweaker, with guests including rapper Xzibit, David Sylvian, and others. The Tweaker album, "The Attraction To All Things

Uncertain," is scheduled for release later this year.

He's also slated to tour with Tommy Lee in the former drummer's new project, Methods Of Mayhem, along with the Beastie Boys' Mixmaster Mike, if the band goes ahead with plans to play the Limp Bizkit-led Family Values tour.

Vrenna recently spent time in Atlanta composing tracks for Snoop Dogg's Outsiderz project and also worked with Snoop and Tommy Lee on "Lucky," a song destined for the soundtrack of the movie ""Heavy Metal F.A.K.K. 2."
