When we formed the band in 1996, we really had no idea about the implications being an “all-girl band” would have, nor did we understand the weight and responsibility that would carry. We had no idea that it would be such a source of debate. We were just a group of friends who wanted to get together and learn and have fun making music. It was all very innocent and our initial intentions were exactly that; we had no agenda in mind at all. Over the years, as we’ve grown up, we’ve come to respect the power that being an all-female band has and also the fear and controversy it generates; it has been both an advantage and somewhat of a disadvantage. Again, it’s a fine line that we walk: knowing the importance of our unique situation while not wanting to be pigeonholed for the very thing that makes us unique. I suppose that we have wanted to adhere to the original format that we unknowingly created some 18 years ago while proving that, with the addition of Jeff, the gender of the personnel in the band isn’t what makes us Kittie. I want us to always be judged on musical merits alone.

Found this online! I was at this show…with that said I WANNA SEE KITTIE AGAIN!!! Last time was about 2 years ago in Houston.
Makes me a bit sad knowing that they might not tour again. Mercedes is a real estate agent now :( do what you gotta do girlie! And fucking sucks that they didn’t get the recognition they deserved. They were my first metal show. They will always hold a special place in my heart :P
