Interview by Paul Salfen
Gifted multi-hyphenate Kat Von D and her band are embarking on their first nationwide headline tour in support of Love Made Me Do It, Kat Von D’s synth-driven modern pop rock debut album which features collaborations with Dave Grohl, Linda Perry (who she started writing material with over 10 years ago), Dave Sitek (TV On The Radio), Peter Murphy (Bauhaus), Danny Lohner (Nine Inch Nails), Ladyhawke and Charo.
This tour follows the success of her first ever run of west coast live shows this past fall, which received glowing live reviews from MXDWN, Outburn, and Syracuse Music Collective. Translating the essence of Kat’s music and the LP’s underlying themes of love, loss and loneliness for the live stage will be renowned visual artist Linda Strawberry, known for her work as Smashing Pumpkins’ Creative Director – who also directed the music video for Kat’s second single ‘I Am Nothing’.
Joining Kat for three months and across two continents will be her full band; Gregg Foreman AKA Mr. Pharmacist (synth 1/Cat Power, The Gossip), Sammi Doll (synth 2/IAMX) and Brynn Route. Fans can expect them to perform album favorites including darkwave bops “Exorcism,” “I Am Nothing,” “Enough,” and “Fear You”. This is truly a can’t-miss event.
