Kittie prove that they remain the undisputed Queens of Heavy Metal as they unleash their long-awaited seventh studio album, ‘Fire’, their first in thirteen years, out now via Sumerian Records. The album’s release is highlighted by a brand new music video for furiously incendiary title track, “Fire“. Fans can finally stream the album now HERE

Speaking on the arrival of their new album, Kittie vocalist/guitarist, Morgan Lander shares 

“We’ve gone from 0 to 100 within the last few years and it’s almost unfathomable that the culmination of all of our work, sacrifice, pain and triumph has finally come to fruition with the release of our 7th studio album, “Fire”.  We burn with more determination, focus and drive than ever, and hope that these elements resonate with every word, and can be heard in every note of this album. Fire is for you!”

Kittie sent the internet ablaze earlier this year when they announced their return with brand new music, in the form of blistering single, “Eyes Wide Open“. They followed up with a second new single, “We Are Shadows“, which is currently blazing its way up the Top 40 at Active Rock Radio, and the announcement of a very special run of exclusive headline shows across the US and Canada in April. A truly iconic live performance at Sick New World festival in Las Vegas set the scene for the announcement of the new album and release of third new single, “Vultures“, followed by more show-stealing live performances at globally renowned US festivals Welcome To Rockville in Daytona, FL and Sonic Temple in Columbus, OH. They released fourth single, “One Foot In The Grave” in May, their final taste of the album before its release.

The band’s eagerly-anticipated, upcoming headline shows will see them perform in 5 cities across the US and Canada this July and August, giving fans a very special and rare chance to see the band play a full headline set that will include their new material as well as classic hits and some deep cuts not played live since the band’s early days.

When you discovered Canadian bashers, Kittie, has a direct influence on how you see them. For those that were on board from the beginning with the Spit album, released in 1999, Kittie was considered part of the nu-metal movement. Going into their later albums, In The Black (2009) and I’ve Failed You (2011), the band had evolved into something far more sinister, and were viewed as a serious full-on metal outfit. Just as they seemed to be hitting their stride six albums into their career, however, Kittieslowly disappeared from the scene in the wake of touring for I’ve Failed You. The silence was eventually dubbed an “indefinite hiatus” by the band, broken only by a one-off hometown show in London, Ontario in 2017, and the release of the documentary, Kittie: Origins/Evolutions, in 2018. Until now…

Thirteen years and 12.6 million career streams later, that silence has been broken in earnest. Vocalist and guitarist, Morgan Lander, drummer Mercedes Lander, guitarist Tara McLeod and bassist Ivy Vujic maintain that Kittie did not break up because it is an ingrained part of their identity. The documentary and the one-off show in London were intended as a cap on everything, leaving a big question mark at what might happen down the road. Offers from promoters to do some shows in 2022 and 2023, including the sell-out, inaugural Sick New World Festival in Las Vegas, were enough to convince Kittie to dust off their instruments, resulting in a renewed interest in the band and a label deal with Sumerian Records

When they finally did gather as a unit, it was like putting on a pair of comfortable boots, with no need to break things in before getting down to business.It turns out that thirteen years away has seen the band develop growth in songwriting, arranging, lyrical content and vocal melodies, creating something monstrous and volatile. Produced by Nick Raskulinecz (Foo Fighters, Rush, Alice In Chains, Korn), Kittie have finally surfaced and unleashed ‘Fire‘, their first new album in thirteen years via their new label home, Sumerian Records. With renewed fury and unfathomable sonic brutality, the new era of Kittie is well and truly upon us.
