Watch Footage From Kittie’s First Live Show In Five Years

Kittie’s Morgan Lander: “I Think New Music In 2024 Would Be Really Cool”

During a recent appearance on “The MetalSucks Podcast,” Kittie’s Morgan Lander discussed the possibility of new music from the band. The guitarist/vocalist says she would like to release new music in 2024.

Lander said the following:

“I have a whole phone full of riffs that I’m, like, ‘I think I could probably use these.’ And preparing for these shows has obviously opened up that door a little more and sort of motivated me to do that stuff — be more creative and write. But I don’t have a deadline.

I feel like it’s tough to focus on getting back up to speed with the tour and then also write at the same time. Everybody’s navigating their jobs and family stuff and all that, so that’s always tough. So I feel like it’s kind of like one focus at a time. But we definitely won’t stop playing shows. I think we’ll be really choosy about doing some festivals and things like that. But I do have maybe kind of a skeleton timeline I’d like to have some of these ideas put forth by. I think new music in 2024 would be really cool.”

She also added:

“I know I’ve said this a few times, and maybe if I continue to put it out into the ether it’ll actually happen, but the idea of maybe re-recording the first album for, like, the 25th anniversary — something like that — T-Swifting it up, it’s kind of a really interesting idea. And I think with the musicianship now and how we all kind of sound and jell, I think it could be a really interesting exercise. That’s something I thought about as well.”

Kittie Share Footage From First Live Rehearsal In Five Years

Kittie‘s Morgan Lander and Mercedes Lander have shared some footage from their first live rehearsal in five years. You can check that out below.

Morgan Lander Says Kittie Will “Definitely” Play More Shows In 2023

During a recent interview with Audio Ink Radio, Kittie’s Morgan Lander was asked if the band will be playing more shows following their appearances at the Blue Ridge Rock Festival and the When We Were Young festival. She responded with the following:

“That’s it for this year. But next year, we definitely will. But I think those opportunities will come later on. We don’t have anything set in stone, but I think it’s something that, like I said before, once these doors are open, I think we can expect to feel comfortable doing a few more little things here and there and hopefully we’ll be able to do some more one-offs in the States and Europe and that type of thing. So the possibilities are endless.”

Morgan Lander On The Possibility Of New Kittie Music: “It’s Not The Right Time Yet, But There’s Always A Right Time For Everything”

During a recent interview with Pierre Gutiérrez of Rock Talks, Morgan Lander was asked about the possibility of Kittie releasing new music. She responded by saying “it’s not the right time yet, but there’s always a right time for everything” and that “it could very well happen.”

Morgan said the following when asked if Kittie are still “on hiatus”:

“As of right now, yes. Since the documentary was filmed and has been released, there’s been some changes. We are no longer a signed act. So if we were going to make new music, it would be released independently. But we do still have a number of legacy-type projects that we are going to be releasing and working on for the future. We love to be able to pay tribute to the things that we’ve done in the past. And I know that a lot of people are even just excited for re-releases of old stuff and whatnot. We’re always looking for ways to reintroduce people [to KITTIE’s music] and whatnot. So we do have a couple of things coming down the pipeline. I can’t really give too many details yet, but there will be announcements and it will be awesome and it should be pretty fun. But no new music as of right now.”

She continued after being asked when the band are planning to announce the “legacy” projects she mentioned:

“I’m not quite sure, actually. It’s still sort of in the development kind of stages, but it’s just a fun legacy project that I think that certain people and collectors will be stoked about.”

She also added the following about the possibility of new music:

“The thing is, especially for myself and for Mercedes, KITTIE is a part of our lives, and it never will stop being a part of our lives. Whether it’s going into a deal to do some re-releases or the ‘Live In London’ concert that we did, or just digging through the archives to give people little snippets of the past. So KITTIE never will die because it lives within us still. We’re still working on the KITTIE legacy, and we still live and breathe that every day. And so absolutely there could be new music. But I just don’t think that — it’s not the right time yet. But there’s always a right time for everything, and I think it could very well happen.”

Kittie’s “Live At The London Music Hall” To Receive Digital Release Next Month

Kittie will be releasing their 20th anniversary concert documentary “Kittie: Live At The London Music Hall“ in digital outlets on November 17. The effort, which features the band’s October 27, 2017 show at London Music Hall in London, ON, was previously only available on Blu-ray, DVD and Vimeo. Morgan Lander commented:

“Performing with Kittie at the London Music Hall, in all of its incredible incarnations both past and present, was genuinely one of the best nights of my life. We are so happy to finally be able to share with the world the beauty and joy of this reunion, and the sheer power of the live experience.”

Mercedes Lander On The Future Of Kittie: “I Don’t Think We Would Do Anything Unless It Was A Really Great Offer And We Could Include Everyone”

During a recent appearance on the “Thunder Underground” podcast, Mercedes Lander was asked about Kittie’s future. She responded by saying that she doesn’t think that the band would do anything “unless it was a really great offer.”

Lander said the following:

“I know that we’re lucky to have the experiences that we have had. And we had a really amazing time when we did that ‘Live In London’ show a couple of years, where we brought everybody back that wanted to come back. And we did like a ‘travel through time’ with all the different members and stuff like that. So that was really cool. We had a lot of fun doing that. But at this point, unless we got a really good offer… I don’t think we would do anything unless it was a really great offer and we could include everyone, in one fashion or another. And I think because at this point, we’re kind of one of those legacy bands, I feel like it would probably really help, or it would be really cool, if we could something with some of the past members as well. ‘Cause right now, we don’t necessarily have… I mean, besides my sister, myself and Tara [McLeod, guitar], it’s just the three of us, technically, in the band.

It’s kind of hard for us to continue on without [the late] Trish [Doan], because it would feel kind of weird not to have her there. So there’s a lot of stuff going on with that. But you never know what might happen. If somebody decides that they wanna give us a good offer, and it works out for us, and it’s feasible for us and we’re able to do it, I don’t see why not. But at the same time, we wanna make sure that things are good for the fans as well. We wanna make sure that the people that are coming to the show are getting a good experience, ’cause it might be the last time. [Laughs] We don’t wanna shortchange anybody and have a ‘lesser than’ experience, if that makes sense — we wanna make sure that everybody that comes to a show gets blown away. So we kind of have to outdo ourselves.

But we’ll see what happens. You never know. The documentary is on Amazon Prime right now, and people are losing their mind. Our Instagram and our Twitter and all of our other social media has basically exploded since the documentary got added to Amazon Prime, I guess, like a month or two ago.”
