Kaine are pleased to announce that they will be re-uniting with their original drummer and fellow band founder Josh Moreton for their debut gig in Norwich at the Owl Sanctuary on January 17th, 2015. Current drummer Chris MacKinnon is unable to make the show due to a family commitment.
Rage commented; “Josh was a very big part of Kaine’s foundation and we spent many hours putting together the songs that would end up on Falling Through Freedom. We also spent hours together jamming in sheds and taking those hard steps to becoming a regular gigging band which we were able to do after two years of solid work. It’s great to be playing with him again for this one show.”
This marks the first time Josh has played with the band in two years, when Kaine played a last minute show (booked that day) at the Hole in the Wall, Colchester with the set consisting entirely of their debut album in its entirety unrehearsed in December 2012. Josh has since been playing drums in Dismanibus and Forged in Black who have new releases coming up.
Josh added: “I’m looking forward to a fun jam/sharing the stage with some old friends and excellent musicians again. Since then I’ve been working with Dismanibus on a new album. Recently, I’ve joined the heavy metal titans Forged in Black, and we have our single ‘The Exodus coming out on Dec 1st (definitely beats an advent calendar chocolate) that I’m excited about, as it’s a pretty good song. I’ve seen Kaine many times since I left and they’ve gotten pretty tight, so it should be good fun.”
The original Kaine line-up came close to re-union earlier this year with the founding members agreeing to do a show which unfortunately fell through. The line-up for the Norwich show will effectively be re-uniting the Falling Through Freedom line-up with the addition of Saxon Davids on guitar. The band will be doing a mixture of new and old material on the night.
