Kittyhawk hailing from Chicago, Illinois are what you might call an emo “super group” featuring members of bands Dowsing, Joie De Vivre, The Island of Misfit Toys and Pet Symmetry. Started in 2012 they self-released their first EP digitally that eventually saw a physical release via Skeletal Lightning Records and Storm Chasers LTD. Listen to “Travels in a Suit” from their debut EP and tell us that you didn’t get captured by the pop hooks. Kittyhawk’s sound has been described as a mixture of Rainer Maria and Knapsack. On November 19, the band will releasing a split with OH’s Cherry Cola Champions via Flannel Gurl Records. Thee split is available for pre-order at: http://flannelgurl.bigcartel.com.
The band’s song “The Green” off the split is now streaming on Spin.com: http://www.spin.com/articles/kittyhawk-the-green-track-stream/
