Sick New World launched this past spring in Las Vegas, bringing together some of the biggest names in Y2K-era nu-metal with others from the expanded alt-metal/heavy alternative world, topped off with some hip young acts from the hardcore and electronic worlds.
One of the other bands returning from this year’s line up to play 2024’s event are nu metal outift Kittie. Earlier this year, singer Morgan Lander spoke to Metal Hammer about the nu metal revival that has made events like Sick New World possible, saying: “There’s definitely a resurgence of it. It didn’t really go away. It was hiding in the depths of southern America for a long time. It just took a bunch of kids whose parents grew up listening to that music to get old enough to like it. A lot of those kids never got to see Kittie play, because the first album [1999’s Spit] was 20 years ago, when nu metal was first happening.”
