Joel Gausten – Still Clawing: Kittie’s Morgan Lander on the Band’s New Documentary & Undying Resilience

Here is a sample of Joel’s interview with Morgan: Since 1996, Canadian singer/guitarist Morgan Lander and her drummer sister, Mercedes, have led Metal veterans Kittie through more than two decades of immeasurable highs and soul-crushing lows. Now, a years-in-the-making documentary film aims to tell the truth behind one of the most complex and emotionally charged narratives in music history. The result of a successful Indiegogo campaign launched in 2014, the just-released Origins/Evolutions traces the band’s history from their beginnings as eager high schoolers writing primitive tunes to their most recent…

The group’s on rotation on MTV, hitting stages at Ozzfest and beyond and enjoying the perks that come from being a popular act on tour.

CVLT Nation – The Nu Metal Years Part 2: The Guantanamo Diaries

Bands didn’t exactly make it out to rural Dorset much. Until a local dry ski slope started putting on all-ages punk shows, the only band I could see play live was The Wurzels. Then Follow The Leader came out – I was big into KoRn already, but this, it had cover art by Todd McFarlane and Fred Durst was on it (I was young, okay?). It was more polished than Life Is Peachy and the hooks dug in deeper. I managed to persuade my dad to drive me and three friends to…

Songfacts – Morgan Lander Of Kittie

Greg Prato has interviewed Kittie lead singer and guitarist Morgan Lander. Here is an excerpt: Kittie were still teenagers when they got a record deal and released their debut album, Spit, in 1999 (they recorded it during after-school sessions). This wouldn’t be all that unusual, except they played metal, and they played it with a fervor that earned them a slot on Ozzfest and a gig touring with Slipknot. There was nothing like it, and there hasn’t been since. Kittie was never molded to fit a certain image or framed…
