Kittie (stylized as KiTTiE) is a heavy metal band formed in London, Ontario in 1996. They have released six studio albums, one video album, four extended plays, thirteen singles and thirteen music videos. The band chose “Kittie” as their band name because the name “seemed contradictory”. Kittie formed in 1996 when Fallon Bowman and Mercedes Lander met in gym class.

Morgan Lander became the lead vocalist and one of Kittie’s guitarists and Tanya Candler completed the band’s lineup on bass. After signing to NG Records, Kittie released their debut album Spit, which was certified gold by the RIAA and sold at least 600,000 copies in the United States. In 2005, Kittie added two new members: Tara McLeod on guitar and Trish Doan on bass. On February 11, 2017, bassist Trish Doan died at the age of 31.
