Folk-Indie-Dance. That's it. You love it. It gets you drunk. We're big in the Brooklyn and play tons of DIY shows, none of which are listed here, but you can find playing in clubs like Bowery Ballroom. We've been playing music together for 8 years, so we finally made the band.

Biography

come now. We were raised on a farm in Kansas then got shipped to Brooklyn in a crate and sold on the street for cash. We like patches of sunlight, matches, and gasoline.... or rather...Kittens Ablaze is a six piece americana indie-folk band with a cello, violin, drumming lead singer, guitars, bass and keys. The band formed in 2007 among 6 friends from diverse musical backgrounds as classical, folk, and indie rock...and metal.

Kittens Ablaze was no time in writing and producing their own debut EP, and soon after, made there debut full length "The Monstrous Vanguard", with help from producer Nic Hard (The Bravery). They released the album to a sold-out Mercury Lounge in January 2009 and were invited to play a showcase at the 2009 South-by-Southwest music festival in Austin, TX.

The band has received mention in New York Magazine, Vice Magazine, the New York Times (by Mick Jones of the Clash), they have been named MTV-U's Best Band of the Week, and with their music video "Strobelight" they became one of a few unsigned bands to receive regular rotation on Vice Magazine's internet TV channel, VBS.tv.
