Joining King and French in the band's current lineup are bassist Chris Banja and new drummer Mike Oliviero.

American power metal band VAINGLORY, fronted by vocalist Kate French (CHASTAIN) and featuring lead guitar virtuoso Corbin King, has parted ways with guitarist John Michael Youngblood. An as-yet-undisclosed replacement has already been found.
VAINGLORY has commenced the songwriting process for its sophomore album, due sometime in 2008. "All I can say is [the new material] will knock you out!" King previously saud. "It's way beyond heavy and has riffs that will kill you!"
VAINGLORY's self-titled debut album was released in Europe in April via MTM Music.
According to a press release, VAINGLORY "has all the ingredients in place to be a major force on the metal market for years to come. Kate's ability to mix power, conviction, emotion, and true heavy metal singing is very uncommon in today's 'metal' vocalists. Kate is a veteran to heavy metal and has not only pushed beyond the normal bounds of female vocalists, but has delivered her best recorded performance to date on this CD."
"VAINGLORY is now accepting submissions for a new hard hitting heavy metal drummer. The band is looking for a professional drummer with a great attitude; who can play to a click track; is willing to support the band goals and play double bass drums. Plans for end 2007/early 2008 are to record a new CD; live dates nationally and internationally and film a new music video.
