NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire -05/22/12)-
"[Kitten lead-singer Chloe] Chaidez has a raw power and believability as a performer. You can't quite take your eyes off her for fear of missing something. I felt an honest chill of discovery..."
"[Kitten] put on a show that can best be described as Karen O-Meets-The Blur-From-Smallville. Jumping off the drum set, climbing the rafters, playfully punching Chris Vogel on bass, writhing on the floor... Chaidez barely stopped moving besides one small break to catch her breath and another to douse some water on herself."
Los Angeles-based indie rock band Kitten will release their new EP, "CUT IT OUT," on August 28th. Today, the band releases their first new material in over a year and a half. New tracks "Cut It Out" and "Sugar" are paired as A-Side/B-Side singles and are available at iTunes now. Download both new tracks for free at http://snd.sc/JDlmh2, or listen on YouTube at http://youtu.be/Z4aYF4t_lko and http://youtu.be/AvSoZv7BrOs. An official video for "Cut It Out," directed by TIGER TIGER, will be available next week.
After a handful of California shows, including one tonight at San Diego's The Casbah, Kitten will spend their summer traveling the U.S. alongside Pomegranates, with dates getting underway July 16th in Lexington, Kentucky (see below for dates).

Kitten, fronted by the extraordinary Chloe Chaidez, earned high praise for 2010's independently released debut EP, "SUNDAY SCHOOL," as well as for their undeniably exhilarating live show. The band's new EP "CUT IT OUT" is a frenzied but melodic blend of danceable pop with an undercurrent of raw post-punk and 80s new wave; it's filled with irresistible melodies, incessant hooks, and Chaidez's provocative lyricism.
