KITTIE TOURS UK

KITTIE are actually coming to the UK.
Yes. I said it. There is not a thing about this up on their myspace or their official website tours section as far as I can see, and I've been checking these websites in futile expectation for ages now. BUT, a search in wild, forlorn hope let me to go here, where you will find tickets for:

20th OCTOBER LONDON Underworld, Camden
22nd OCTOBER GLASGOW Cathouse
24th OCTOBER BRISTOL Carling Academy Bristol

I have no idea about how likely this is to be cancelled or whatever. I don't even want to assess likelihoods or think about the fact that the Carling Academy Bristol website doesn't actually list the Kittie show yet. I just want to think about getting to see Kittie live at last...

Also, I found a load of good quality videos of the original Spit-era line-up playing live (Suck Choke and there are others), which is cool because I thought you could only get the Ozzfest and Conan appearances. However I didn't know they released a DVD until recently and I don't think that these videos ever showed that high on searches for Kittie until lately. Anyone know if they ever did any other Ozzfest videos other than for the track 'Spit'?

And! If anyone has JustABunchOfFuckedUpKids, I would be amazingly happy if you could upload it!

Has anyone here met the band after shows &c.? What are they like in person?

(no subject)

Canadian metal band KITTIE has announced the departure of bassist Trish Doan.

Doan has been diagnosed with the eating disorder anorexia-athletica-nervosa, which she developed during the recording of KITTIE's "Funeral For Yesterday", Doan's first release with the group.

"It breaks my heart to say goodbye to this family that has given me the best two years of my life," Doan said. "I wish my time with KITTIE did not have to end, but this decision was made based on doctors' orders. Unfortunately, this is the only option that will allow for my full recovery."

Doan has been battling the disease for nearly two years.

"Trish is a part of our family and her talents and friendship will be missed by all of us," said Tara McLeod and sisters Mercedes and Morgan Lander. "We are continuing to be respectful and supportive of Trish's needs during her period of healing. We wish her the best on her road to recovery and will remain close to her throughout this difficult time."

Morgan Lander & Tara McLeod

Besides coping with the usual female rocker stereotypes, the ladies in Kittie have had more than a few obstacles in the past year. The Ontario natives were all set to launch a new label called “Kiss Of Infamy,” but according to vocalist Morgan Lander a certain fire-breathing musician apparently thought that the name hit a little too close to home. Kittie had little choice but to shake it off. The ladies selected the new moniker “X Of Infamy” and soon after released its 4th album Funeral For Yesterday, a release that accentuates the more melodic side of Kittie.Read more...Collapse )

The thing that I’ve always loved & hated about going to rock concerts is that you never know what you’re gonna see...some nights you see a standard show that’s very similiar to ever other performance & some nights there are technical difficulties like a guitar string breaking or gear breaking down, which is also kinda standard when a band is playing on a tour, but then there’s the “other” things that you see that make a rock concert really bad...I’ve seen alot of things happen at shows & tonight I saw a first & it’s a really thing I have to report as well.

Kittie in Atlanta @ the Masquerade

OK, here's the deal. I bought two tickets to the Kittie show in Atlanta on Wednesday August 22nd, this wednesday. I live in Fl, and everyone who was supposed to go with me has backed out and I can't make the trip to ATL by myself. So, I am trying to find someone who will be willing to take the tickets from me. I would only ask for the price of shipping. I would need to know if you wanted them by monday the 21st in order to get the tickets to you in time. my email is: ladyshini@gmail.com aim: horriblyinspired and if you can't get me at either of those, text me at 904.705.1954 thanks

So..

Who got it?


Love it? Hate it? What's your thoughts on it?

I, personally, love it. I think it's Kittie's best album to date. Morgans vocals range from the sweetest singing and amazing harmonies to metal as fuck growls. Tara brings so much to the band with her insane guitar skills..Never thought I would hear a Kittie album with solos and a guitarist that actually plays lead parts rather than just copying Morgan. Trish is great on bass..Everything That Could Have Been and Around Your Heart are awesome.
Morgan and Mercedes..we all know they are amazing already, and they just proved it once again with Funeral For Yesterday, and I love the fact that this time Mercedes actually put some vocals on the album..homegirl is fucking brutal, there is NO denying that.

Right now my favorite tracks are:
Last Goodbye, Will To Live, Slow Motion, Everything That Could Have Been, and The Change..but the whole album is just amazing, and I can't get over it.

Oh! almost forgot..an Update from their myspace:
Hey guys! just stoped in to let you know what's been going on lately

This past monday (feb 5th) we shot the video for our first single FUNERAL FOR YESTERDAY in Long Island and i must say, i think its going to turn out great. Besides it being probably one of the coldest days i can remember in years and the location not really having heat at all, it was a lot of fun. The location was perfect for the mood of the song and i think you all will enjoy the video.

Today we are also leaving for the FUNERAL FOR YESTERDAY TOUR. We are honestly so excited and cant wait to see all your smiling faces at the shows.
