KITTIE's MORGAN Turned Away At Border; WINDY CITY INVITATIONAL Appearance 'Unlikely'

Canadian metal band KITTIE have posted the following update on their official web site:

"Dave [KITTIE manager/father of guitarist/vocalist Morgan and drummer Mercedes] and Morgan Lander were turned back at the U.S.-Canadian border just a few moments ago. This makes the appearance at Chicago's Windy City Invitational [on Saturday, October 1] extremely unlikely to occur at this point. The problem that necessitated the turn around should be resolvable before the Detroit show on the 15th. The band expresses its deepest apologies and we will keep you posted with more information and details as we are made aware of them."

KITTIE played their debut gig with their new lineup — featuring new guitarist Tara McLeod, formerly with Strathroy, Ontario area band SHERRY, and bassist Trish Doan, who played with London, Ontario rockers HER — on Thursday (Sept. 29) at Call the Office in London, Ontario. The band will soon release a downloadable EP — "a new taster," the band said — to introduce new material.
