Kittie is:
Morgan Lander – Guitar/Vocals
Mercedes Lander – Drums
Tara Mcleod – Guitar

What genre of music do you consider Kittie to be?

Mercedes – I would consider Kittie to be metal. I think anything beyond that would be pigeonholing the band.

What’s the ultimate direction for your band?

Mercedes – As of right now I feel like we aren’t 100% sure of the direction we are headed.

We released our 20th anniversary documentary and released a live DVD from our 20th anniversary show in the last year. It’s something that we’ve always wanted to do.

As for the future we aren’t sure where were headed. Morgan, myself and Tara are all a part of new projects. Morgan just started singing for a band called “Karkaos,” I’ve been singing and playing guitar for a band called, “The White Swan,” for the last 3 years and Tara plays guitar for a band called, “Nice Horse.”

How would you describe your music making process?

Mercedes – We always start with music. It can start with an idea or a riff from Morgan, myself or Tara and then it kind of grows from there, usually at a jam session. Lyrics and melody always come last.

Why call the band, “Kittie?”

Mercedes – So when the band started in 1996 I was 12 years old. The name Kittie, in our young 12, 13, and 14 year old minds, sounded completely contradictory to what our music sounded like.

What is the craziest thing that has happened in the past 20 years?

Mercedes – We have literally had so many crazy things happen. Too many to list.

One time we had a car chase our bus with a drunk girl hanging out of the passenger side window shaking a voodoo doll at us. Super weird!

What should fans expect to experience at a show?

Mercedes – Not that we will be playing shows any time soon, but I think people should expect to have a great time and head bang a whole lot.

Typical question here. Who has influenced you the most via music?

Mercedes – I think life in general has influenced us. I think growing up in the music industry really influenced our perception and the content that we ended up writing about. We have always tended to write about personal experiences.

How can fans and future fans locate, listen to and buy your music?

Mercedes – You can find our music pretty much everywhere! Amazon, Spotify, Apple Music, you name it!

Is there anything else you would like your fans to know?

Mercedes – We just want to thank everyone for all of the many years of support and love. We can’t thank you enough. You have made our dreams come true and for that we have the deepest admiration for the Kittie Army.

What’s coming up next for Kittie?

Mercedes – We will see what happens! In the mean time please check out: The White Swan, Karkos and Nice Horse.

    Write more, thats all I have to say. Literally, it seems as though you relied on the video to make your point.
    You definitely know what youre talking about, why waste your
    intelligence on just posting videos to your
    weblog when you could be giving us something enlightening to read?

    I was curious if you ever thought of changing the structure of your blog?
    Its very well written; I love what youve got to say. But maybe you could a little more
    in the way of content so people could connect with it better.
    Youve got an awful lot of text for only having 1 or
    two images. Maybe you could space it out better?

  6. quest bars cheap   On   December 9, 2019 at 5:20 am

    First off I want to say awesome blog! I had a quick question in which I’d like to ask if you don’t mind.
    I was interested to know how you center yourself and clear your mind prior to writing.
    I have had a difficult time clearing my mind in getting my ideas out there.
    I truly do enjoy writing but it just seems
    like the first 10 to 15 minutes are wasted simply just trying to figure out how to begin. Any suggestions or tips?

    Howdy! This article could not be written any better!
    Looking at this article reminds me of my previous roommate!
    He constantly kept talking about this. I most certainly will forward
    this information to him. Fairly certain he’s going to have a very good read.
    Thanks for sharing!

    This is a really good tip particularly to those new to the blogosphere.
    Short but very accurate info… Many thanks for sharing this one.
    A must read article!

  13. sling tv   On   January 14, 2020 at 5:26 am

    I’m impressed, I have to admit. Rarely do I come across a blog that’s both educative and interesting,
    and without a doubt, you have hit the nail on the head.
    The problem is something too few folks are speaking intelligently about.

    Now i’m very happy I stumbled across this in my hunt for something concerning this.

  14. sling tv   On   January 16, 2020 at 9:51 pm

    I am really impressed with your writing skills as well as with the layout on your weblog.
    Is this a paid theme or did you modify it yourself? Either way keep up
    the nice quality writing, it is rare to see a great blog like this one nowadays.

  15. sling tv   On   January 18, 2020 at 11:23 am

    Hi, i think that i saw you visited my blog so i came to “return the favor”.I’m
    trying to find things to improve my website!I suppose its ok to use a few of your ideas!!

    Hi there! This blog post could not be written any better!

    Going through this article reminds me of
    my previous roommate! He constantly kept preaching
    about this. I’ll send this information to him. Pretty sure
    he’ll have a good read. I appreciate you for sharing!

  17. sling tv   On   January 28, 2020 at 10:02 pm

    Hi! I know this is somewhat off-topic however I needed
    to ask. Does building a well-established
    blog such as yours take a lot of work? I am completely new to writing a blog however I do write
    in my journal on a daily basis. I’d like to start
    a blog so I will be able to share my personal experience and feelings online.
    Please let me know if you have any kind of recommendations or tips for brand
    new aspiring blog owners. Appreciate it!
