Kittie has revealed the first of many behind the scenes clips of the band hard at work on the upcoming record "I've Failed You," which is due out August 30th. You can check out the clip below.

The band will "I've Failed You" on August 30th, 2011 via eOne Music. For this effort, Kittie enlisted the talents of Siegfried "Siggy" Meier at Beach Road Studios in Goderich Ontario who took on producing rolls.

Kittie recently shot a music video for the new song "We Are The Lamb" last month in New York. "'We Are The Lamb is the first single and is about as musically devastating as we get. It is a tale of self sacrifice, to give those you love a chance to grow and learn to live for themselves. I cannot express to you how proud of this album we are. 'I've Failed You' is real, honest, angry and ugly," says front woman Morgan Lander.

The album's track listing and artwork can be viewed below.

1. I've Failed You
2. We Are The Lamb
3. Whisper of Death
4. What Have I Done
5. Empires (Part 1)
6. Empires (Part 2)
7. Come Undone
8. Already Dead
9. Never Come Home
10. Ugly
11. Time Never Heals

I must say, one thing I've noticed about articles about Kittie, is that no one ever bothers to comment on them. This has led me to a theory that the majority of Metal Underground's perusers could in fact be a bit sexist. They don't give a s*** about this band 'cause they're all girls. I think they freaking rock. What's damned wrong with all of you? Don't you know that metal chicks rule? So what if they're female. Does that make them less "legitimate" than metal dudes? F*** no! You ought to pick up one of their albums sometime. F***. You all seem like a bunch of sexists, ignoring this band 'cause they're chicks. F*** that! I love, Love, LOOOOVE angry, raging metal chicks! Kittie rules!!

Yeah, it's funny how bands with no talent get swept under the rug. I doubt it's sexism as much as disinterest. I guess being cute doesn't carry as much weight in metal as other genres.

@1 and 2: I don't care what they have between their legs, they don't garner my attention because they just don't have the piss and vinegar that they had on their first album. Touring with ICP didn't do them any favors either. I have no issue with chicks that bring more to the table than just image. Arch Enemy, Drain S.T.H., hell I might even pay to see Opeth next stop, but Kittie?... Pass. BTW, great job at turning their new album press release into a gender debate. I'm sure Kittie appriciates that.

Blindgreed: Well I don't always represent what 'most Women' think, but alright, ha. A few people tend to think I'm a bit of a sexist because I don't always favor Female groups/artists or things like that. But when Women are good at what they do I like them very much, hence Arch Enemy, Amberian Dawn, and other female fronted bands I actually like. As for Kittie, it appears they belong in the litter box.

@Post 1 - I'd wager a bet if Kittie hadn't been an all female band, not only would no-one be posting on their articles, but there wouldn't be any articles to post on. Look at your own post,

"I love, Love, LOOOOVE angry, raging metal chicks!"

Tell me, if Kittie were another all male band would you love them as much? Now who's sexist?

Ok now that that's out of the system, I should say I think partly liking a band for there image or sex is all fine with me. Image and sex are as much art as music.

BFWC: So much much to comment on... here goes...
1. Please explain how Kittie touring with ICP would've given them some Metal cred? That was the point of the ICP reference in post #5.
2. First, you state that you 'kno' that BG 'prob listenen' to gay black metal or emo. Then you say that you 'dont kno' and 'dont care'. So which is it?
3. BG is the supposedly the hater, yet you troll on a Metal website and spew more hate in your one mispelled, incohernet diatribe than BG has in the entire thread.
4. It makes you want to saw his face off and expose his brain or the empty space between his ears? Why would you want to do that? To make him more like you? After all, you're the one called Broken Faced, and you're the one you has trouble grasping the simplest of grammatical rules.

Hi broken face, I'm Blindgreed1. Wanna hear a story? I call this story broken face fig pudding. Once upon a time I took your nut sack and stapled it to your forehead. Then I pummeled your little figs like a fvcking speed bag at the gym until they were reduced to pudding in your swollen purple nut sack. Then I grabbed you by your rediculously long a$$ clown shoe strings and tied you to the back of my car. As your melon bounced off the speed bumps in your trailer park, eventually the staples released from your forehead and the bloody fig pudding dribbled out into the street where all of the ICP kiddies in the trailer park came running to lap it all up. Just then they all got hit by a fvcking dumptruck full of AIDS. And all the metalheads lived happily ever after. The END.

Blindgreed, you f***ing win! When I have kids, I'm telling them that bedtime story.

Okay, I totally had to add my two pennies to this...

I think Kittie sucks...Their first albums were sh** because it was Nu Metal. Hell, I could've compared each song from their first two albums to a Korn song. Then they started doing a more traditional Heavy Metal sound (and a random Metalcore album). Granted, I respect any Nu-core bands that realize that they suck and then make an attempt to actually play their instruments in a more resepectable genre. But Kittie is really just that: attempting to actually play their instruments.

With that said, I want to also mention that sometimes women get mad at me when I refer to someone as a b****. Understand this: I don't call you b**** because you're a woman. I call you a b**** because you're a b**** (and plenty of men are b****es too). And I like to call sh** as I see sh**. I don't dislike Kittie because they're women in a Metal band. I dislike Kittie because they f***ing suck in their genre. Nothing personal, I'm sure they're cool people, but plain and simple, they just suck. And I feel that them being an all-woman Metal band just makes them more of a novelty, rather than a good band, and thats their following.

Now, if you want women in Metal whose music I actually like and respect:
Cristina Scabbia (frontwoman of Lacuna Coil)
Angela Gossow (frontwoman of Arch Enemy)
Ashley Ellylon (ex-Abigail Williams keyboardist, currently in Cradle of Filth)
Doris (backup vox/bassist of Chthonic...I also got to meet her, she is awesome)
Alissa White-Gluz (frontwoman of The Agonist)
Lady Arsenic (frontwoman of Arsenic Addiction)

And also, here's an all-female Metal band that is highly underrated and totally should've gotten more recognition: Mythic (Death/Doom Metal). Sadly they only released 2 demos and an EP, but damn they were brutal!

Now on the matters of ICP and their fanbase (such as b**** Fanboy Wanking Clowns up there-b****es don't know about my acronyms...Whats up Junkie):
ICP is a giant f***ing joke. As someone that listens to Metal and underground Rap, I can tell you that even compared to other rappers, they f***ing suck (So you can't say I hate them because I don't like Rap). The whole clown gimmick is retarded. And they take themselves way too seriously. Even their fanbase takes it way too seriously. What the f*** is a juggalo/juggalette? That song, "Miracles"...Why the f*** were they asking questions about sh** that was already answered by science?! Maybe if they read something they'd know how 'f***ing magnets' work, instead of just deciding it was "magic..." But I suppose someone had to fill the position of stupid sh** to entertain stupid f***ing people.

Contrary to the belief that we're all a bunch of knuckledraggers, a lot of metalheads are actually quite literate and intelligent people (Observe how I articulate my words for this post, Brokeback fa**ot Wanting c***-Oh, I'm on a roll Junkie!). Now, fellow metalheads, I have some questions for you:
Have you ever had an intelligent conversation with a juggalo?
Have you ever met a juggalette that wasn't a fat/ugly blob?
Have you even known of a juggalo/jugalette that you actually like as a human being? Or at least one you could TOLERATE?

If you can answer "yes" to either of these three questions, I'll take it back. But I doubt anyone here is able to do that.

And now, in regards to Butthole Filled With c** (okay, junkie, I like this one the best):
Just in case you didn't read anything prior to this, I don't think ICP is crap because they aren't metal (Again, I listen to rap too). I think ICP is crap because they're f***ing crap.

Those "tight leather clad white faced transexual black metal" artists have more skill and creativity in their sh** than you and all your fellow juggalos have in your entire bodies collectively! And none of us here listens to "emo sh**" thats actually more in YOUR DEMOGRAPHIC than mine.

And who the f*** are you threatening Blindgreed (or anyone else for that matter) over the internet? Being an internet tough guy only shows me that you're probably 15/16 years old. Your spelling and grammar shows me that you're stupid as f*** (yeah...that empty space between your ears). And your use of language shows me that you're insecure and possibly insecure about your body image (you're a fat/ugly blob like the other juggalos/juggalettes right?). Also, I highly doubt that you'd actually saw Blindgreed's-or anyone else's-face off for that matter. BG would knock your d*** in the dirt, and me personally? I'd feed you your own c***, drink your blood and cannibalize your corpse. Then I'd skin, empty and bleach your skull just to add accent to my apartment. And last, I would cut off your middle fingers, bleach them and wear them as necklaces. The rest of your remains, I'd probably make use for it. But I'd probably just hack the rest of you into 4-5 pieces and put the rest in a trashbag and dump it in the woods, leave the rest of you to feed the earth as carrion.

Anyway this is my thought on. I like Kittie. I thought the first album was good and I liked their last album. But it wasn't anything special. I do respect them for trying all these years and continuously coming out with albums good or not. I guess that means enough people still like them for them to keep going.

People who take Insane Clown Posse seriously are fvckin' retarded. They have a handful of listenable songs IMO and that's only because they're so ridiculous it makes them interesting. Other then that I have no interest in them at all.

What's funny about killing people? Or talking about killing people? Unless it's you, then it's f***ing hilarious.

How is emo spawned from black metal? How? Lemme "break it down for you, dawg"

Emo:
-Emotional lyrics (hence, 'Emo')
-Boring music
-Skinny jeans
-Make-up (for STYLE)

Black metal:
-Lyrics about satan, gore, f***ing brutal rape, fisting
-Musical depth
-Leather and studs and f***ing SPIKES
-Make-up (AKA WAR PAAAIIINNNTTT)

I've never heard of ICP or Kittie, and I don't think I wanna hear either of them.

If you got bored of the posts, came back and continued reading them that shows just how f***ing bored and pathetic you really are. You probably stopped reading at 18 because all the "big wurds" were "hurting mah head" so you stopped and decided to pull your d*** to the thought of your mom f***ing the Mexican who mows my lawn (AKA your conception) and that makes you hot because you wanna finish your impotent and sad load in your mom because it'd be like returning to the mothership. Sick f***.

However, you can only tug at the rope for a minute so you decided that since you have no friends and your mom won't f*** you you'd come back and finish reading the opinions of the people on the "interwebz with dem keyboards and such" calling you a f***tard.

f***tard.

Blindgreed, notice how he couldn't even muster up a decent response to me? He got on you and everyone else, but he barely touched me...Much unlike the way I'm assuming he was touched when mommy and daddy left the trailer to work on the methlab.

Netromancer: Ashley Ellylon...I'd put my tongue in her bu-wait, wrong thread.

americanpatriot, I'd bone every Kittie member. But I was especially partial to their former guitarist, Fallon Bowman. I'd rape that ass.

And TIM, you kick arse!

Now to our man of the hour, Bad Fellatio:

Drum_Junkie is very clever and intelligent. Definitely moreso than you. Thats why your slights against us are so f***ing sophomoric and retarded. Do you think you're hurting any feelings with sh** like, "...your just a p*ssy mommas boy who's dad touched him as a young boy and to this day you still enjoyed it." ??? Do you know how old I was when I heard sh** like that? I was 12.

"...just because you live in trailers doesnt mean you cant stick you head out the window now an then an take a look at the world."
-You stick your head out the window because you're too fat and lazy to actually leave the f***ing trailer. Spellcheck is your friend. And maybe if you actually stepped out of the trailer and maybe, I don't know, walked to school, you'd know how to f***ing use proper English while you're trying to state your irrelevant points.

And my f***ing god...Emo definitely DID NOT come from Black Metal. This is the origin of Emo in chronological order:
Punk >; Hardcore >; Emotional Hardcore (original emo, such as Fugazi, was actually respectable) >; 2nd generation Emo/Screamofa**otry >; -corefa**otry

And here's Black Metal's origin:
Heavy Metal >; Extreme Metal (think Venom) >; Thrash Metal >; Black Metal

There is no direct relation between the two. And Cradle of Filth is not f***ing Black Metal, you dumb f***. They're just f***ing gay...like you.

And yes, thats exactly what I'm telling you. Tech N9ne is so ridiculously skilled as a rapper that his superiority is blatantly obvious. If you can't see that, you don't have a f***ing brain.

Other great rappers:
Tupac
Immortal Technique
Diabolic
Jedi Mind Tricks
Jay Rock
Eminem
[old] Three 6 Mafia
Necro

Hell, I'd listen to Drake and Lil Wayne's dummy rap before I'd listen to ICP. I'd get AIDS from a tranny hooker, then publicly admit that I got it from a tranny hooker before I'd listen to ICP. That is how much they suck. And that is how much YOU suck at life.

-Musical depth (If you class a retarded gay playing p***y music "depth")
-Leather and studs and f***ing SPIKES ( this one speaks for itself GAYYYYYY)
-Make-up (AKA WAR PAAAIIINNNTTT) ( these spaztics arnt in a war an they look like there the punch bowl at a jerking off orgy)

Have you guys ever heard of "Don't feed the trolls?"

This juggalo guy is obviously a sad and lonely kid who got into horrible music as a way to rebel against his parents (or maybe try to get attention from them).

To pass the time, as he lacks friends to spend it with, he goes on web sites and tries to get his kicks by stirring up debate and argument. The kid isn't even serious.

Hellspawn, I usually obey Rule #14 of the internet...He stood out. Then again, its good to sharpen the verbal axe just in case...

The whole leather and spikes thing actually originated from Biker gangs in the 50s/60s. It was then incorporated into Metal by Venom and Judas Priest. Rob Halford (Judas Priest frontman) is in fact homosexual, as well as Gaahl (Gorgoroth frontman). But their music is quite respectable. Their sexual orientation definitely didn't affect their quality, and I have no hatred against the gay community (Protip: Befriend a gay guy...They have hot friends/sisters/cousins that will like you and f*** you, just because you're the only straight friend of that gay dude.

Good job. You know how to accomplish the most basic of internet research.
Do you know why it was so easy for you to find that information? Because I don't hide behind a screen name. I back up my statements, and I don't go around trolling internet boards (or anywhere else for that matter) starting sh!t.
If you care to reread my initial post (#17)
The first two of my 4 points were questions. Questions that went unanswered.
Point 3 was simply stating a fact, and point 4 was a combination of facts leading to a question - that also has not been answered.

If you really want to make the trek to Muskogee, go ahead. I'm sure you could use google maps to find me.
I'm not worried or scared in the slightest. If something were to happen. We've got your IP address and timestamp that can be traced to the PC you used.
And with the dialog documented on this sight, it will be no problem establishing motive.
And do you know why it will be so easy to narrow it down to this site? It is because I don't make it a habit of creating enemies, so my list is extremely short.
I will issue one warning to you, my friend:

You don't mess with a mans' family.

Well "mista", let me clue you in to a few things since you appear to assume so much. 1) One of the beauties of this site is that NOBODY here (speaking for the regulars of course) worships, or follows ANYBODY. It's kind of a metalhead trait to carve your own path (which if you were metal should go without saying). 2) I don't need to sit back and close my eyes and imagine a world with no internet because I lived it. I have memories of it and plenty of lifelong friends from that era AND the current internet era as well. 3) Regarding those who aren't fortunate enough to have a swift tongue; all I can say is don't "bring a knife to a gunfight".

ON TOPIC COMMENT:
I am actually a bit curious to see if this album sounds as raw as their debut did (as the video describes it). Its been a while since that record and they're no longer teenagers (but still not into their 30's) It seems like with each member change, their sound changed - which should be expected, I guess. We'll see what happens.
Regarding the sexism related to Kittie, that seems to be self-inflicted. They promoted themselves as both very young and feminine. As they've gotten older they haven't tried to move away from the all girl image. Look at the press releases that they control. What does it do to counteract it?

What's your point? Ladies rock the support hose at 30? Need to be marketed like 50's mothers, and be taken more "seriously" as "women" at start wearing pant suits?

HEY HEY, we're back on topic!

Square:
To clarify my previous post, I did mention that they're still under 30 years old. They are still young, just not as young as they used to be. I didn't intend for it to sound like they were over the hill. I meant that they are no longer teenagers, and they (The Landers sisters at least) have now spent half their life as Kittie.

As far as what they should be marketed as: If they want to be judged on their musical abilities, then they should market themselves as a Metal band or a Hard Rock band or whatever genre they prefer. But, if they want to avoid the sexism, they shouldn't market and promote themselves as a female band. Let the music stand on its own without subtly stating, "By the way, women made this music." When they've had line-up changes, they always choose a woman to fill the roles (maybe with one short lived esception). If it's about the music, then gender shouldn't matter. If it's about the image, then that is where music cred issues pop up. A good part of it isn't their fault. But it seems like they could work harder to pull their gender to the background - at least in my opinion.

I don't know, man. I think it's hard to try to take parts from the whole and be objective about it. If an image if Kittie was to be marketed, duh, it would be feminine, they are female. And it's not a woman in the background playing an instrument, it's the entire front. I'm not sure the goalposts were moved for them to be signed, but again, how to you cut their gender and image from the whole? They aren't going to look and sound, or necessarily even think, like guys. They aren't guys. If their appearance and novelty of their gender in their field was an advantage in being signed and marketed, so be it. It's not like scores of others are being turned down because they can't compete with the "female force." There are not many "Kitties."

Your right square,it comes down to the music. That alone makes or breaks them. I do recall early in thier alot of label interferance trying to get the singer to sing in less harsh vocal tones. The music industrys changed alot since they were signed. I remember they played a tour back in the day with Machine Head,when MH was going through thier Supercharger nu metal phase. I do remember Kittie struggling to get respect in a male dominated genre. Thats probably always been a uphill battle for them.

I think the relevant comments on this thread do illustrate that you're right. It can be, and probable has been, a disadvantage in acheiving credibility. Whether or not the gaolposts were moved, I can't say. I do agree that being female is part of their identity. They choose how large a part of that identity it is. I'm not saying that they shouldn't be feminine, just that they choose where to place the emphasis - on the image or on the music. They can still emphasize both, but if they want more focus on the music than they need to do that. In order to stress the music, maybe a little de-emphasis of the image is necessary. Actually, the video in this article did a decent job at that.

My comment #86 about the sexism was simply questioning where they place the emphasis.

DJ, can you really change the anima? I mean, Kittie might be appealing to different people for different reasons on that approach, including the gay community, which they have supported before, and so have a fanbase. As a straight guy, they don't necessarily appeal to in that way. You don't like to wear lipstick, might not find it attractive, and seek feminine empowerment, appeal, or even approval at a different level, or on the other hand find it sexy and attractive and like them as a result. All good, but the same reasons that make the image not that appealing to one makes it appealing to another.

Agree with the music. Images come and go, the music stays.

You've got a good point. They are trying to appeal to a diverse audience. And I'm sure there is a certain sense of responsibility with being successful women to carry that proudly and to NOT hide it. On that point, they probably feel they have struck the proper balance to reach a varied fanbase.

Earlier, you also pointed out the difference between their expectations and those of the audience. It probably is the audience making the image distinction even moreso than Kittie, themselves. Good call.

"...Images come and go, the music stays."

well put.

It wasn't THAT long ago that women were all but invisible house maids or dancing the can can (sex symbols.) I mean, there was a time when things were so limited that working out of the home probably amounted to prostitution! It's to still see today the struggle with the idea of image vs. professionalism. There were certainly talented female musicians and composers during, say, the romantic period, but you certianly won't see them mentioned anywhere. Though I don't care for Kittie as a personal perference, I wish them the best of luck.

wow TIM, lol.

But yeah I wish I had more to add to the Kittie/all-girl bands thing. But I think I said everything on the whole "them being women" thing.

But honestly, they market themselves as an all-woman band. Sexism is inevitable. But once again, I don't judge on them being women. I judge on them being good musicians. They really aren't all that impressive.
