7 Year Bitch singer plans solo debut

Selene Vigil-Wilk, former lead vocalist of Seattle, WA-based melodic punk outfit 7 Year Bitch, has announced her solo debut. The record is titled That Was Then and is due out September 14, 2010

7 Year Bitch released two albums on indie C/Z Records before signing to Atlantic before the band split up in 1997. The band also appeared on a compilation to benefit Home Alive, an organization founded after the violent death of The Gits' Mia Zapata, a longtime friend of the band. In early 2004 a Seattle court convicted Jesus Mezquia of first degree murder in the 1993 death of the punk singer Mia Zapata.
