Antihero Magazine‘s James Geiser recently had the chance to catch up with Morgan Lander from Canadian Metal band Kittie. To highlight the band’s 20-year anniversary, a documentary of memories from the past two decades has been compiled and will be released as a 3-Disc Set (DVD, Blu Ray, and CD) titled Origins/Evolutions. We talked to Morgan about the release of this documentary, the band’s humble beginnings, the rise to stardom, as well as the tragic loss of the band’s bassist, Trish Doan, in 2017. We left no stone unturned in this in-depth look at one of the most influential metal acts of the mid-90s.
How many people do you know that accomplished something that effectively CHANGED LIVES while they were in HIGH SCHOOL?
Our friends Morgan and Mercedes Lander didn’t intend to become Heavy Metal Feminist Icons in their teens, but that is exactly what they have become.
They held their own with some of the biggest metal bands in the genre and made music as brutal as any of their male counterparts. They were RIAA certified gold and have sold MILLIONS of records since their debut 20 years ago. With plays in the millions on YouTube and Spotify, the band is even more relevant today, due to the international dialogue about women in entertainment.
The 3-Disc Set (DVD, Blu Ray and CD) is due out on 3/30/2018. Also, look out for a 12″ record of the audio portion of the release in the coming months.
