Produced by Guns N' Roses' Gilby Clarke, Shrinking Violet is a harder-edged return to . Guns' roots in sleazy, crunching glam-metal a la Kiss and Mötley Crüe. Ex-Love/Hate singer Jizzy Pearl adds some street grit, as does Clarke's restrained yet muscular production. Although a few tracks are too long and begin to meander after a while, the songwriting is actually quite consistent overall; the end result is a surprisingly focused and effective album by a band that appeared all but spent as a creative force.

In February 2010, . Guns announced they had signed a deal with Steve Vai's label, Favored Nations, to release a "Deluxe Reissue" of Shrinking Violet, the only . Guns studio album to feature singer Jizzy Pearl, that was released the same year. The album was repackaged with new artwork and five live bonus tracks by the group's current lineup. The band announced a one-off unplugged event, taking place at the Hotel Café in Los Angeles, California, in February 2011 featuring the band, with the exception of Jeremy Guns, former .

The discography of . Guns, an American hard rock band, consists of fourteen studio releases (twelve original studio albums, two cover album and one re-recording album), nine live albums, 13 compilation albums, four extended plays, 27 singles, six video albums and 25 music videos
