Kittie is working on new music and it's not gonna be a complete nü-metal throwback. In an interview with Knotfest's She's With The Band, Kittie guitarist and vocalist Morgan Lander joked that the band's upcoming 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."
Morgan later mentioned that 2024 will be a "really good year for us," while Mercedes said "I think people are gonna be really excited when they find out what we've been up to." All we know so far is that Kittie debuted a new song called "Vultures" at Sick New World 2023, and that it was awesome.
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. And for those of you too young to remember JNCO jeans, they were basically denim parachutes that were synonymous with the nü-metal era. If you had those, you also probably had a wallet chain and frosted tips. Basically, you were this guy.
