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.”
