Former Kittie bassist Jennifer Arroyo has also weighed in on the announcement she and Lisa Marx quit the band.
"Yes, I left Kittie," Arroyo wrote in an online posting. "It was one of the hardest decisions I've ever had to make in my life, but sometimes in life you have to make decisions for yourself. This was one of them. I love Morgan [Lander, guitar/vocals] and Mercedes [Lander, drums] with all my heart and they know that. There is no bad blood WHAT-SO-EVER. In fact, I hope Artemis finally decides to drop the band so THEY can move on with their lives. They truly deserve it after all the wrongs that have been done to the band Kittie."
"I'm not going ANYWHERE… no no no!!!! I'm devoting all my efforts into Suicide City and can't wait to see ALL OF YOU with my boys in tow. It's my heart and I couldn't be more excited about the future!!!
"Thank you for all the support and love... the three years with Kittie was some of the best times of my life… thank you all for the memories... I had an awesome time!!!
"See you with Suicide City!"
