Kittyhawk signs to Count Your Lucky Stars; new album in October

Kittyhawk

Count Your Lucky Stars is thrilled to announce the addition of Chicago’s Kittyhawk to the label’s roster. The Michigan label will release the band’s debut LP, Hello, Again, in the Fall of 2014. More album details and song premieres coming soon!

In celebration, the band is heading out on tour with labelmates, Free Throw who will be playing most dates. Full itinerary listed below.

Kittyhawk hail from Chicago, Illinois and feature members of Dowsing, Pet Symmetry, Joie De Vivre, and touring members from Into It. Over It., but don’t you dare call them a side project. Instead, imagine the best parts of all those bands together in one band and you get close to what Kittyhawk sounds like. Frontwoman Kate Grube anchors the band with strong vocals and charming synth lines that float just above the guitars as the percussion pushes or drags the tempo to match the somber tones each song brings. Kittyhawk are out to prove they are more than just “members of” your favorite band, and one listen tells you they’ve already done it.

The Hello, Again LP follows up the band’s 2013 releases, a split with Cherry Cola Champions and a 4 way split with Droughts, Frameworks & Prawn, as well as the band’s 2012 Self-Titled debut EP. You can listen to all those releases on Bandcamp.
