Kittie Have Six Songs That Didn’t Make The Cut For “Fire”


Gold-certified alternative metal band Kittie had no shortage of songs to choose from when it came to the recording sessions for “Fire“. That outing — the band’s first in 13 years — arrived this past June and it turns out the group had an additional six songs in the works for it.

Drummer Mercedes Lander recently told the BREWtally Speaking podcast of that:

“There’s so many songs that I like on this record. We picked 10 out of the 16 or so that we wrote. And I think that was the hardest part of this experience, was only picking 10 songs… It’s so hard because I personally think that they’re all so good, but I’m clearly biased. I think they’re all great. And it was really hard to make that decision to pick those songs, so much so that we [told our producer Nick Raskulinecz], like, ‘Nick, what do we do?’ And he was, like, well, ‘If it were me, let’s pick these songs.’ And we were, like, ‘Okay, you know what? Let’s just do it.’ ‘Cause we couldn’t make a decision.”

As for if those songs will ever see the light of day, Lander offered:

“So right now there are other things that are going to happen that I think that some older Kittie fans are gonna be really excited about. So there’s some things coming down the pipe that will be, I think, really exciting for everyone involved. So you’re just gonna have to wait to see what happens. Unfortunately, I can’t talk more about it. But other than that, I think we’re probably gonna go back and take those six songs that we didn’t record and maybe rework them and then maybe we’ll put ’em on the next record.”
