Exciting news for Kittie fans: the nü/alternative metal band broke out a new song for the first time ever over the weekend at Las Vegas' Sick New World festival. Titled "Vultures," the new song is heavy but features plenty of melodic, sung vocals from frontwoman Morgan Lander.
Earlier this year, Lander spoke about Kittie's future and explained that new output is coming, though they won't be returning to full-time band status.
"There's a lot of plans coming up," said Lander. "Not too much that I can share, but definitely more shows are in the works. I don't think that it's ever gonna be something that we'll be able to do full-time and tour nine months out of the year. It's just not feasible and not even really cost effective, to be honest with you — from that standpoint as well.
"But, yeah, I think that we are gonna make the band and music and shows a priority for the next few years. So that just means you'll be seeing and hearing more of us. I guess."
"We'll see what sort of shakes. We've got some interesting things coming down the pipeline. So I think, without giving too much away, I feel like the next few years will be very interesting and very exciting for the band."
Kittie has not released any studio music since 2011's I've Failed You, but it seems like that could be changing. Lander discussed it earlier this year.
"Yeah. It's definitely something that is on our to-do list. It's something we've been really interested in… It's definitely something that we wanna do when the timing is right, when the situation is right. It is all starting to come together and feel more right. So I guess it's the perfect time."
