KITTIE's MORGAN LANDER Joins Montreal's KARKAOS

KITTIE frontwoman Morgan Lander has joined the Quebec metal band KARKAOS as its new lead singer.

Says Lander: "Joining KARKAOS has been a true honor for me. It feels so incredibly good to be back in the metal game after a number of years away, and I cannot wait to step on the stage once again with these amazing musicians."

Adds band founder Vincent Harnois: "We already knew how talented Morgan was when we began talking to her about joining the band. When she sent us her first demos, we realized that this was going to be something extremely special. She is an absolute pleasure to work with and she brings a whole new dimension to our songs. It is an honor to have her with us and we are thrilled to start the next chapter or our band together."

Forged out of the ashes of a much earlier band incarnation by Harnois in 2003, KARKAOS has quickly evolved into one of the most respected and celebrated metal acts from Montreal, Canada. Mixing elements of death metal, power metal and hard rock, this female-fronted band succeeds in bridging the gap between extreme darkness and light, beauty and terror. KARKAOS has performed alongside international acts such as INTO ETERNITY, ENSLAVED, THE AGONIST, UNEXPECT, UNLEASH THE ARCHERS, DELAIN and LEAVES' EYES.

KARKAOS released its first EP, titled "In Burning Skies", in 2010, closely followed by a professionally shot music video and a live appearance on Montreal's prestigious music television station Musique Plus. Striking while the iron was hot, the band returned to the studio to record their critically acclaimed debut full-length album "Empire" in 2013, led by the single and music video for "Depths Of Madness". After years of crafting their live show and refining their sound, once again KARKAOS managed to come back stronger and more accomplished than ever with the release of their second full-length album, "Children Of The Void", in 2017, a testament to their work ethic and strength as a band, diversifying their sound with the addition of the immensely talented and seasoned drummer Justine Ethier (BLACKGUARD, SYKODE).

KARKAOS is ready to push the boundaries of extreme melodic metal with its upcoming follow-up to "Children Of The Void". The band entered Silverwings studio earlier this month to demo and work on pre-production on eight new songs.

KARKAOS expects to record its next full-length this fall/winter for an early 2020 release.
