KITTIE frontwoman Morgan Lander recently spoke to The Setonian about the group's recently completed fourth full-length album, which was recorded in July/August at Retromedia Studio in Red Bank, New Jersey. The CD was produced by Jack Ponti, who has previously worked with BON JOVI, SKID ROW, and ALICE COOPER. Songtitles set to appear on the new album include "Never Again", "Funeral For Yesterday", "The Change", "Breathe", "Last Goodbye", "Slow Motion" and "Flowers of Flesh and Blood". The band recently finished mixing the effort with producer Kevin Shirley (IRON MAIDEN, DREAM THEATER) for a tentative March 2007 release.
"This album has about 14 tracks, which is the longest album we've made so far," Morgan said. "The music flows better and it blends the heavy sounds with a touch of mellow."
In addition to music, Morgan and sister Mercedes Lander (drums) have a clothing line, Poisoned Black, as well as their own management company/record label, Kiss of Infamy.
"Starting a clothing line has always been a dream of ours," Morgan said. "We've had the idea for years, but we were strapped with money and resources so the dream was put on hold for a while.
"As for Kiss of Infamy, we currently manage two Canadian bands, UNSENSORED and THINE EYES BLEED," Morgan said.
KITTIE's downloadable EP, entitled "Never Again", was released in February through Rock Ridge Music. iTunes is offering an exclusive four-track version of the EP, which includes bonus track "Everything That Could Have Been".
KITTIE has sold more than a million records since the release of its debut, "Spit", in 2000. That album was followed by 2001's "Oracle" and 2004's "Until the End", with several EPs in between.
