After debuting a new song earlier this year and hinting at a new album, Kittie is finally in the studio! Kittie is working with producer Nick Raskulinecz (Mastodon, Ghost, Trivium, etc.) at Sienna Studios in Nashville, and hopefully we'll get to hear the fruits of their labor in 2024.
So what will the new stuff sound like? In a recent interview with Knotfest's She's With The Band, Kittie guitarist and vocalist Morgan Lander joked that the new music won't have you rummaging around for your JNCO jeans.
"I think marrying some of the ideas, 'cause I don't think we're ever going to put our JNCOs [jeans] on again," said Morgan. "But, yeah, the idea of marrying some of those ideas — like who we are now with the ideas of who maybe we used to be and kind of being able to meet somewhere in the middle, but in a way that will just create something brand new again. I'm excited for it to be unleashed upon the world."
Drummer Mercedes Lander added: "I'm gonna say that we are just really stoked to write 1,200 percent bangers. I think that's just where we're at now. We want people to feel good. We want people to feel what we're feeling. I feel like bangers, that's what we're good at."
Kittie's upcoming material will be their first since I've Failed You in 2011. The band is currently the Lander sisters alongside longtime guitarist Tara McLeod and returning bassist Ivy Jenkins.
