nu Metal Outift Kittie are one of the other bands returning from this year’s lineup for the 2024 event.Earlier this year, singer Morgan Rand was interviewed metal hammer Regarding the resurgence of nu metal, making events like Sick New World possible, he said: “It’s definitely going to have a resurgence. It’s not really gone. It’s been hidden deep in South America for a long time. It’s just a bunch of parents listening to it.” Kids who grew up listening to the music grew up loving it. A lot of kids had never seen Kittie play because the first album (1999’s Spit) was 20 years ago, when nu-metal was just coming out.”
