Kitty Plague answers the call of the void on their latest record.

“When we first started recording this album over 18 months ago with Jeff Forrest at Doubletime Studio, Stephen Case was on drums and John Falk was on bass,” says sole Kitty Plague survivor Mark Haemmerle of the band’s upcoming album, L’appel Duvide. “But Stephen left the band before we were finished, and John soon followed. I reached out to Jeremy Copp, who I played with in Injest over 15 years ago, to see if he’d be interested in recording the bass for the album.” With Doubletime’s Forrest then taking over the drum kit, “This trio version of the band has been playing out for almost a year now,” says Haemmerle.

However, he says the new Kitty Plague has encountered difficulty booking shows. “We were on a hiatus for about a year and a half, and a lot of venues we used to play have changed ownership and bookers. So I’ve been going out to those places again and finding out who books, and what the new booking emails are...a friend of ours said to try booking through Facebook, that they have better luck with that than emailing venues. I’ve sent out many emails to several places that haven’t gotten returned.”
