Kittie Lose Two Members At Once

Photo of Kittie

Band Photo: Kittie (?)

Kittie have parted ways with both their guitarist Lisa Marx and their bassist Jennifer Arroyo. Frontwoman Morgan Lander posted a statement on the band's message board that reads as follows:

Alright, I know that what has happened with Lisa comes as a shock to all of you. It was a shock to all of us too. Things haven't been said in a press release up until this point with good reason however. Not only has Lisa decided to leave the band, but Jennifer has decided to leave too. I figured we should get this all out into the open while we still can.

We discussed Jennifer's departure with her, and with a heavy heart, she said she can no longer continue with Kittie, so she will be continuing on with Suicide City full time.

There was no press release for Lisa when she decided to leave because we had decided with Jen that we should wait until April 1st to let this all out of the bag, both from her end and ours. This is an amicable departure!

Now the reasons...I feel that there are only a few real factors that came into play regarding this happening with both Lisa and Jennifer...

For the past few years, Artemis records has denied us critical things like tour support, movie soundtracks, advertisement placement and other critical things that help a band to keep making money and pay the people that needed to be payed, like Jen and Lisa. Within the last 6 months, thing became so financially bad that we were no longer able to keep the girls on retainer, that is give them a salary while we are not touring. Not only were we not able to pay them, but we came home from the last tour not knowing what was next for the band.

It is a sad fact, but ALL of this is happening because our label is destroying us, and these girls jumped from the sinking ship while they still could. Unfortunetly for Mercedes and I, we have to continue on if Artemis renews our option, whether our hearts are in it or not...

Jen has been with us for 3 years, and she has seen the hardship, and experienced the pain and sadness in knowing that as long as we are with the label, we will never be where we know Kittie can be. She is a smart girl, and a hungry person, and she knows the trouble with the label first hand...

We don't blame the girls for leaving. Financially and emotionally, our troulble with the label has done nothing but break our spirits. How can we insure a future for them when we DON'T EVEN KNOW WHAT OURS WILL BE? As long as we are with Artemis, I can't guarentee anything...

We love all of the girls, and wish them the best of luck...Its just so sad.

I think i agree more with post 6 than 8 or 9.....they were a far cry from great, but i've heard much worse from all male bands(live) that are more revered on this site....part of it is sexist and part of it is they just lacked the technical chops....also their like, what 20!??!
Thats not bad for being that young really. well im done defending a band i've only heard live twice and never heard any of the albums. say what u will but i've been playing guitar and bass for years and they played very well live.

Hey guys, I just thought I would clear a few things up. First of all, my good friend Morgan is not telling you all the truth. The real reason that Jen and I left the band was because I put our latest CD in the CD player. After hearing our band I went to Jen and said hey listen to this! She listend and asked me who the band she was listening to was. I told her that she had just listened to our latest record "Until The End." We both were so disgusted by the horriable sound that we were making, we decided to leave the band and hopefully in the end prevent Kittie from makeing any more records. Im sorry to the "fans" for makeing you listen to that for so long, and about our departure.

So...i've spent......what? 19 years learning guitar, upsidedown backwards and forwards.....For the reocord......

yes, Kittie werent Pantera or PinkkFloyd or PorcupineTree or Tool or Opeth or Metallica e

BUT.....They obviously felt like they had more in common with metal than any other genres........that can be felt on all their (half decent) albums......especially their 2nd and 3rd records.......SO f***ING WHAT??!?!? if they lacked "chops"......i'm a trained (good ol' old school parenting) guitarist 19 years of playing...and despite both my jaded attitude and anti-nu metal stance......
I STILLL BACK KITTIE......at least they f***ing tried.....which is more than i can say for at least 80% (or more) of u f***ing half wits who dont know the first thing about music.... or making it....or sitting in a studio that cost 14X more than apartment rent.....GROW THE f*** UP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

u know nothing of which u speak....plain and simple.

when u can instruct me and everyone else on this forum about label misery and time constraints then i'll give u your fair "opinion"

But if your going to judge a band based "ENTIRELY" on if you think they suck or not......neither I, nor 90% of musicly inclined semi-reasonable people are going to even do more than maybe giggle about yer worth-sh** opinion....

so either GROW UP......

Or type something worth reading................almost all of you need to seriously re-evaluate what it is to make anbd play music.....since you seem to be such experts.

To those who posted/agreed with comment 19, 21, and 24. You are all IDIOTS. The fact that they made it in the tough music business that is metal is one thing. Telling us that we cant say "yay the band we dont like is breaking up" because we havent made it or havent even tried to make it is quite another. I listen to music primarily, and play the guitar on the side. I suck at the guitar and probably have no future but im still trying. I can not stand kittie. Im glad they are breaking up. That is MY OPINION on the matter at hand. My personal talent or sucess has NOTHING to do with me likeing/disliking anything a band does.


Get of YOUR high horses and stop telling me (and others in this community) what to think and how to think it.

i dont think someone saying "kittie sucks" is even at discussion here...or even, "im glad their gone...ha ha"

Which is childish and said only to upset fans so that the person dishing out the insults forgets that his d*** is small, he's going bald, getting fatter and has an std so that for 2 seconds feels good about himself.

I think what most people are upset about, and it's a fact of life...like death and taxes...is that even though some hated this band and others loved them that they were strangled by their record label into giving up....the very thing that gave them a shot at commercial and...*cough..artistic success killed the band.

which isnt fair...

What if the same thing happened to Children of Bodom, Tool (it did almost happen to them actually) Strapping Young Lad, Dillinger Escape Plan Metallica or some other almost universally adored band...The forum would be FILLED with adoration for the band and utter blood thirsty hate for the label.

Label woes should be something everyone should be sympathetic to mainly cus it can happen to any signed band...whether they suck or own, whether thier country or punk or whether their vets or 6 days old.

so while this isnt out of love....it is out of respect.

There has been boy bands out for longer than Kittie, Shall we respect them too?? No because they suck and thats my opinion and i dont care, I Would be glad they broke up so i wouldnt have to hear of them again, and thats the way i look at kittie, i cant stand there music or videos and i find it hard to belive they have so much fans, when bands like Hexxed who are alot more talented are barely known, and, PorcupineOpeth99 you obviously no what you are talking about BUT! that does no give you the right to judge us and say we are worthless and havent tried!, im 16 and my band have an e.p out and i have been playing guitar for 2 years but i have worked my f***ing a$$ off to become half decent looking up to people like Chuck Schuldiner and Mikael Akerfeldt, and when i hear there music im inspired and what to learn as much as i can on my instrument, but when i listen to Kittie i think there music is horrible regardless of how much they 'tried' or 'lasted', what ever happen to the saying 'Its all about the music??, and as i go by that saying i think Kitties music is bad.

GOT TIME?

read this

Theres so much support here for what I have to say....and many cases are so much more well thought out than the way put it (JT, BLACKDOG, RememberMetal?: I actually cheered like the dork that I am after reading post 31)

While I dont quite fully agree with him Symbolic he makes a good point or 2 about the validity of his opinion...To his his spirit and drive and obvious ear for talent he has my respect... Mikael Akerfeldt is a hero of mine as well...as maybe you can tell.....

I never meant to tell anyone that if they dont "like" Kittie that their opinion is "worthless" though I used some phrases here and there to cause some conclusions to be drawn....My angle was that if you hate Kittie and dont give a reason other than "they blow" then your only serving to make yourself look like an idiot to both fans and non-fans who at least respect their work ethic.

RememberMetal? said almost exactly what I wanted to say in a much more diplomatic words, post 31 is a bit like my post minus the blind frustration and rage......

So to correct my stance on this issue ( a week ago I never thought I would devote this much time or energy to a Kittie forum but....) I still respect Kittie, and I still think they were wronged by their label and I STILL think that many of the people posting that are being unreasonably harsh dont even have the first idea of what it is to pour their creative energy into music....not to mention other resources like money and time which can sacrifice the time you may spend with family, friends and loved ones.

Furthermore....Kittie were not a girl or boy band..........they started at the grassroots level, just like any other band on this site. They were not manufactured by some fat cat at Artemis records, the members of this band came together due to a love of....heh...grunge of all things and punk and the more popular styles of metal....thats what starting a band is about....mutual love for the form....

Whether Kittie had more or less than "a little talent" is a discussion that will never have a clear winner.....As in, I may play guitar 75 times better....but Morgan Lander hits notes I can't get near vocally....
Thus, in that regard she is the better musician....Is someone allowed to hate Kittie and post even if they've never even picked up a guitar....?

"ABSOLUTELY"....

But to be insulted by their lack of sensitivity to fans or even for more than a second to be"bothered" is to let some hot head who live 8000 miles away from you actually get to you....so f*** em...I still say the naysayers mean sh**.....whether your favorite band is Slayer, Blink 182, Napalm Death, Nirvana, Megadeth, or Kittie....At the end of the day arguing over the internet is like being in the special olympics.....even if you win, you're still retarded....so im conceding....

Kittie may not be the biggest of bands but I saw there show and they caught my attention, They were fast and heavy pretty played better that some other gusy bands I seen and I dont know why so many guys are against them really. I guess there jealous chick can rock and kick ass.Chicks playing instruments are hot. The more chicks in rock the better, I'm always in favor of that. We need more powerful females that kick ass. I like my woman fearless and powefull not b****y little princesses that cant do sh** on their own. So for that I'll respect those Kittie chicks they had the guts to go on stage and play no matter what anybody said..And that my friends is metal. My 2 cents

apologies, didn't think there were any avid christians around.. i do respect the pope, pardon what i said earlier, thank the pope for what he did, but seriously, thank the resr of bloody chistianity for all of the sh**e. namely the Inquisition, the persecution of Galileo and science generally, blame 'em for sexism, (all of you kittie supporting feminists,) "glorification of suffering" … (cough) pardon me, R.I.P pope

To Panterave,

Don't blame christianity for the selfish and cruel acts of (godless) men. The atrocities that you listed were not done by Christians, but rather by greedy men with a lust for blood "in the NAME of Christianity". Jesus died to redeem those with true faith, to justify sinful man to a Holy God. So don't bash Christians just because you are misinformed. In all facets of all religions there are those who misuse and abuse their authority, not just in Christianity.

Anyway, there was a time when I thought Kittie was Kool, but now, if the music does not glorify Christ, then I prefer not to listen to it anymore.

I know most of you will probably bash my comments, but that's O.K. I was once in the same state that many of you are in right now. I will still keep praying that Jesus will reveal Himself to you, to Kittie, and everyone that needs salvation.

We have an Advocate with the Father!

The pope was a f***ing poser. No one can say that they have authority from god. Not that I give a sh**, god is a useless idea created by people with an inferiority complex to try to boost their ego. f*** the pope and f*** the idea of god.

Who gives a sh** about the Pope and Cristianity man.This isnt the place for that .Were in 2005 people open your minds dont be blindfolded by organized religion .We are to talk about the topic which is Kittie. I agree with Panterave they didnt know how market themselves. I remember 2 years ago Kittie was supposed to give a show here in Puerto Rico but then canceled because the promoter couldn't give them what they were asking which was a bunch of High caliber equipment more suitable to Dream Theather that a band a like Kittie. While I have nothing against woman in heavy metal (I'm all in favor of that) Kittie can go f*** themselves..Shadows Fall, Walls of Jericho, hell even Dio have come here done a bunch of shows and have been awesome with the fans promoters and played awesome shows..

The Pope wasn't a poser, you can't call someone in that position a poser because that position has been around since the early A.D.

Now, I'm a feminist, but I can't really say wheter or not Kittie wasn't getting funding from their label or not because they were female. O the other head it is very likely that is what happened. They were released from their label last week, currently searching for a new one, hopefully one that will give them the proper means to record another album.

I'm the former guitarist / vocalist of a band called Hydromind. I just want to say Kittie is tight for what it is. I had the pleasure of opening for kittie at HARPOS (Detroit,MI) and the amount of envy I have for Morgan Lander is far beyond my own expectations. I miss the original lineup of kittie though. Girls, I'm sorry that you are having troubles with your label hope you guys can take critizism because here it comes. Less commercial and more hardcore, and don't follow trendy punk or "NEW-METAL"(whatever the f*** that is...)bands. If Kittie is independent, kittie will be just fine......

I don't care how long the pope has been around, he's pretending to be something he's not. he's a human like the rest of us, no more, but he pretends he is a high and mighty direct-from -god holy roller. Bullsh**!

As for Kittie, I'm not a big fan, but I hope they can continue doing what they love. Playing their style of music. To all you a$$holes that cut Kittie down, If you don't like them, don't listen to them!! At least they aren't deceiving people like the pope.

If all the vatican's assets were sold, the world's hunger problem could be fixed so all those c***smoking bishops and their brainwashed frog-eating followers that make up 99% of Italy will all burn in hell for their beliefs......
