KITTIE – Announces Headlining 2011 Summer Tour & New Album Update

(New York, NY) — Veteran road warriors, KITTIE will be hitting the road this summer on a headlining run spanning the entire U.S. including the notorious “Gathering Of The Juggalos” festival. DIRGE WITHIN andDIAMOND PLATE will offer support.

The band has been in the studio since April recording their yet untitled new record. What promises to be a grittier record than their previous effort “In the Black,” front woman Morgan Lander offers her own words:

“We have been working exceptionally hard, crafting what is to be our 6th full length release, and our second for eOne. In some cases these new songs are faster, darker and much more sinister than our previous release. It contains some of the most difficult and personal subject matter I have had the pleasure (or displeasure) of writing.”

Once again the band has enlisted the producing talent of Siegfried“Siggy” Meier at Beach Road Studios in Goderich Ontario, Canada.“The girls have written some incredible and personal songs this time around. They’re heavy as shit and relentless. It’s a pleasure and an honor to be doing another record with one of the best metal bands of our time,” says Meier. The new record will be released later this year.

KITTIE released “In the Black” in 2009 to critical acclaim, “Kittie’s fifth record sees the gals back in heavier form, with Morgan’s much-improved clean vocals soaring alongside mountain-sized riffage.” says Revolver Magazine. even hailed the record as the“biggest metal shock of the year.” The girls spent the next two years on successful tours with acts like DEVILDRIVER, ICP and last year’s THRASH AND BURN TOUR. Multiple music videos were shot for singles like “Sorrow I know” and “Die My Darling”, all can be seenHERE

KITTIE is: Morgan Lander (guitar), Mercedes Lander (drums), Tara McLeod (guitar) and Ivy Vujic (bass).

  1. Must check these out. They’ve never come up on my radar. Always liked proper girl rock bands – goin’ waaaay back to acts like Fanny and Birtha. We’re also quite pally with Girlschool, seeing ’em on European flights to do our various shows. They’re still out there rockin’!

    • metalodyssey Says:

      I’ve always dug Girlschool, my favorite song from them is “Play Dirty”. It’s very cool Girlschool is still out there Rockin’! I never checked out or came across Fanny or Birtha… I’ll have to “investigate” ’em.

      I think you would like the last two KITTIE albums: “In The Black” and “Funeral For Yesterday”. These girls play heavy and Morgan Lander can and does growl… but oh, man, can Morgan croon with the best of ’em. KITTIE plays melodic too… I really back this band. I’m hoping to see them on this tour, they are passing through Allentown in late August. 🙂

  2. I’ve always dug Girlschool, seen them twice. Would have liked to seeN L7 but it wasn’t to be. Will check Kittie out if I get the chance.

    Back on the subject of Warrant, I also got the Born Again album as well. It seems to be a natural step from DRFSC to Rockaholic.
