Kittie To Scratch Out New LP After SnoCore

Hard-rocking Canadian cats return to the studio in late February or early March

Following their stint on the SnoCore Rock Tour, the loud ladies of Kittie will start working on the follow-up to their 1999 debut, Spit.

The fearsome foursome should hit the studio in late February or early March, according to the band's publicist, with a September release expected for the LP.

Kittie — sisters Morgan (guitar, vocals) and Mercedes (drums) Lander, Fallon Bowman (guitar) and Talena Atfield (bass) — are set to kick off the SnoCore Rock outing on January 19 at Las Vegas' House of Blues (see Fear Factory, Kittie, Frog Brigade Set For SnoCore Tours").

Once that trek wraps up on February 17, the group is expected to head for either New York or Ontario (their home province) to begin recording tracks for the as-yet-untitled album.

Spit producer GGGarth (Rage Against the Machine, L7) most likely will resume his position behind the control boards for the new album. According to Kittie's publicist, fans should brace themselves for an even harder, more aggressive sound this time around.

Kittie struck gold with Spit; the album has sold nearly 520,000 copies to date, according to SoundScan.
