When presented with the idea of an all female band, you’re bound to think of pop or some such styling. Canadian metal band Kittie takes that stereotype and buries it in the ground. Kittie is an all female metal powerhouse that has been around since 1996.
In anticipation of their upcoming 20th anniversary, these ladies have some big plans. I’ll let them tell…
So here is what’s happening, and what your contribution will be going towards. First, we will be compiling our personal footage, concerts and events over the past 20 years, to bring you the be all and end all of career-spanning Kittie documentaries. We are opening up our archives to you; to give you an inside look at what it has been like to be in this band, through our eyes, for the last 20 years. From day one to the present: Recordings, shows, backstage…it’s all there. We will be entrusting My Good Eye Productions, a friend and the director of our last 4 videos, with the footage, to help us edit and direct. His fee, as well as travel, equipment, and crew costs over the next year will be upwards of $15,000.
We are also excited to announce that we will be working with Mark Eglinton, who has had recent success with Rex Brown of Pantera’s book, to pen our band biography. This is the story you have never heard, and will not believe! To get Mark started on the process of writing and pitching to publishing houses, he will need $4,000.
The rest of the money will be used to print, design and manufacture all of the awesome perks you see at the side there. We are once again opening up the Kittie archives and raising the dead with old shirt designs, long lost and out of print recordings, and rare and new items to give you a piece of where we came from, and a glimpse at where we are headed.
