Kaine, who have recently finished working on the studio scratch tracks, will begin rehearsals for the new EP at Unit One today. Once the band is ready it will then book in the recording sessions for the new EP. The EP will contain 5 new and exclusive songs not on the bands new album. You can order the new EP here.
Rage Sadler will continue tracking vocals for the new album with Talon Payne at Gallow Wood Media in Essex today. Rage is fresh off a gig in Alton last night and will be working to complete as much of the tracking as possible. Kaine will also be back at Unit One tomorrow to begin the rehearsals for the new EP ahead of the recording sessions.
Kaine will be rehearsing in the studio today to prepare for their show in Alton on Friday at the Lounge Bar. Tickets are available via Skiddle from here. It will be Kaine’s first gig in over a month and so far the only remaining gig this year for the band, unless further bookings can be made.
Kaine have announced their first gig after dropping the entirety of the RS Promotions and Management shows this month. This was due to promoter Ric Stats publicly slamming Kaine drummer Liam Etheridge for being away in Norway for a number of offers, which the band were unable to do as a result. The band had not agreed the dates due to that fact however were still attacked on social media. The promoter would later refer to Kaine as “prima donnas”, a sexist slur, in further material posted on social media.
Kaine will head down south to the Lounge Bar in Alton for the first time on Friday, October 1st. Kaine will join the line-up featuring Aggro, Helestios and Sore Teeth. Tickets are just £4 on the door from 7:30pm. You can find out more details about the event by clicking here.
Kaine will no longer be working with RS Promotions run by Ric Stats. This follows a string of issues, going back to the band being refused admin access to event pages, denied the ability to promote events, told inaccurate attendance numbers, gig cancellations due to poor ticket sales, and no organisation in regard to gear share. The band by being disallowed from promotional activities was severely hamstrung in trying to ensure events were well attended and the end result would have had a negative impact on the gigs in any case.
Kaine recently has to turn down a number of dates offered by Ric Stats on the basis drummer Liam Etheridge is in Norway visiting his partners family. Ric Stats then bemoaned this fact on social media which would turn out to be the final straw for the band. The band will be seeking replacement dates in the coming weeks.
Kaine will be rehearsing tomorrow at Unit One Studios in Colchester. Last weeks session can be seen on the link above. Unfortunately due to poor ticket sales and a lack of demand the bands September gigs have been cancelled and no further bookings have been made for the band. Kaine will use this time to try and finish as much of the new album and EP as possible.
Kaine have booked in some last minute album recording sessions, this time with Gallow Wood Media to start working on the vocal tracking for the album following their gig cancellation today. Kaine were due to play an NWOBHM event at the Queens Hall, Nuneaton which fell through due to poor ticket sales, the second time the event has been cancelled.
Kaine will start the vocal tracking with Talon Payne of Gallow Wood Media, the band worked with Talon on their most recent EP as well as the definitive edition of Reforge The Steel, The Waystone EP and the Reforge The Steel and Kaine X live albums from 2019.
This weekends all day NWOBHM event at the Queens Hall, Nuneaton has been cancelled due to poor ticket sales. Kaine were due to play alongside Airforce (featuring Doug Sampson of Iron Maiden fame), Mythra, Sacriledge, Snatch-Back, Sulvain and WKD. Kaine will seek out an alternate activity for the forthcoming weekend.
Kaine will be dedicating this weeks rehearsals at Unit One to preparing for Switchfest. Switchfest will be taking place next Saturday at The Music Room, Ipswich starting at 2pm. You can attend the event by clicking here. The band will be preparing their set for the night, which will be the bands first gig since July 20th.
Last weekend, while drummer Liam Etheridge was away at Bloodstock, the band demoed 5 studio scratch tracks for the Patreon EP. The CD will be exclusive to Patreon members and can be ordered from here.
