Canadian metal band KITTIE will use The Kiss of Infamy Tour with MOTOGRATER and 40 BELOW SUMMER to debut their first new material since the release of their 2001 sophomore CD, "Oracle".
"This tour is going to be special because we will be giving our fans the chance to preview new songs before they have even been recorded," said drummer Mercedes Lander. "We are so excited to see the reactions of our fans when they hear the new material."
Added guitarist/frontwoman Morgan Lander: "We have been working hard to prepare for this tour and in doing so have written some amazing new material. These are the first new songs we have written in over two years, and musically it all came together so quickly that most were written in a week. The maturation of the band is really obvious, and we are totally pleased with the outcome."
After the release of "Oracle", KITTIE wore their road-warrior gear steadily until a recent half-year break, during which the band have been involved in a lawsuit against their record company.
"After seven months of hiatus, with a few Mexico shows in between, we are ready to get back on the road and do what we do best!" said Morgan. "We are truly ecstatic to be back out on the road. But most importantly, we are anxious to hear fan feedback and just plain rock."
The tour, which will encompass the entire United States, will run from October 18 to December 1.
