Multi-hypenate Kat Von D announces her debut global livestream ‘The Love Made Me Do It Experience!’ featuring her full band performing a cinematic live show of songs from Kat’s critically acclaimed debut album ‘Love Made Me Do It.’ The live stream, produced in partnership with Moment House, gives fans who missed Kat on her recent west coast American tour a chance to watch her and her band deliver their theatrical and powerful live performance. ‘The Love Made Me Do It Experience!’ also includes an afterparty that features a very special, intimate acoustic performance right from Kat’s house and an opportunity for a virtual meet and greet with Kat Von D and her band members that includes Gregg Foreman AKA Mr. Pharmacist (synth 1), Sammi Doll (synth 2), Dave Parley (drums), and Brynn Route (contortionist).
Kat Von D and her full band are thrilled to invite you to their can’t-miss live performance. Of the exhilarating show, Music Connection says, “From “Fear You” to “Exorcism” to “Enough,” along with a neon-colored smokey stage, Kat Von D and her band resurrect a musical spirit similar to that of The Cure mixed with Guns N’ Roses, and a touch of Joan Jett and the Blackhearts. Kat Von D is an act worth paying attention to; as her reason for doing this is inspired by love.”
Kat Von D’s synth-driven modern pop rock debut album Love Made Me Do It was released on September 30th, with “Exorcism” as the lead single followed by the darkwave singles “I Am Nothing,” “Enough,” and “Fear You”. The LP 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.

“A pastiche of shapeshifting analog synths, post-punk dreamscapes, gothic hues, and shy pop magnetism, these eleven songs echo the eternal will of the perennially brokenhearted to love until death.”
“‘I Am Nothing’ is a psychedelic dose of swelling, brooding dream pop. Co-written and co-produced by Von D herself, it evokes the sheen of the ’80s gothic synthwave that partially inspired her musical journey.
“Sound-wise, Von D’s music sits squarely in the goth/synthwave world, and ‘Fear You’ is a great showcase of her sonic talents. Over blinking synths, a snaky bassline and industrialized drums, Von D belts with a commanding coolness that would suggest she’s been making this kind of thing for a solid decade longer than she has.”
“Kat takes listeners on a reflective journey which chronicles the rollercoasters of love and loss, rebirths and passings, and the hardships women face on a daily basis. The track embodies all the emotions from joy to pain to ultimately, hope.”
“a darkwave bop about love, loss and change”.
About Kat Von D
Long before the history-making tattoos, ubiquitous television shows, best-selling books, and influential beauty empire, Kat Von D sat down at a piano for nearly two hours a day and played. In essence, music became her first creative language and most trusted outlet. Classical training and a deep appreciation for music of all genres essentially underscored her life. She studied voice under Ken Tamplin six days per week, strengthening her vocals. In 2012, she began writing with GRAMMY® Award-nominated legend Linda Perry. Following this experience, Kat continued to write on her own, sitting at the piano and summoning songs from raw emotion. During 2014, she retreated to London to record the original mix of what would become her full-length debut album ‘Love Made Me Do It’ (KVD/Kartel Music Group) before cementing it with her band—Gregg Foreman AKA Mr. Pharmacist (synth 1), Sammi Doll (synth 2), Dave Parley (drums), and Brynn Route (contortionist). They moved into a bungalow cottage on her property, lived together, and finished the record. Capping off the process, Dan Haigh of Gunship handled mixing. A pastiche of shapeshifting analog synths, post-punk dreamscapes, gothic hues, and shy pop magnetism, these eleven songs echo the eternal will of the perennially brokenhearted to love until death. It’s highlighted by standouts such as the first single ‘Exorcism’, ‘Protected’ featuring Peter Murphy of Bauhaus and produced and co-written with Danny Lohner (Nine Inch Nails, A Perfect Circle), and ‘The Calling’ capped off by never-before-heard recordings from original scream queen Vampira
