Kittie has had a long, hard road to get where they are today. Since their 1999 debut Spit, they’ve endured label infighting, personnel changes, personal loss, and an industry unable to process the existence of an all-female act whose abrasive, highly aggressive sound veers even from the semi-safe “riot grrrl rock” of their late 90s peers. However, with their searing 2011 release I’ve Failed You and subsequent tour, Kittie wear their scars well, and on Sunday evening held a heavy metal revival in Cleveland that has thoroughly cemented their place in the aggro-rock pantheon.
