FALLING THROUGH FREEDOM EP VOCALS TO BE RECORDED TODAY

Rage will be heading to Gallow Wood Media to record the vocals for the Falling Through Freedom EP. The EP will be a Patreon exclusive on CD and will be part of a multi-disc set to celebrate 10 years of the album release. The release will contain 5 tracks with two songs which were left off the original album. This will hopefully be the last recording session for the EP, which will mean the EP can then be edited, mixed and mastered before release. The CD ill have new artwork, as will the 2022 Patreon shirt. You can grab yours by joining Patreon for £3 or more a month here.

VOCAL RECORDING SESSIONS BOOKED IN FOR PATRON EPS THIS MONTH

Rage will be heading over to Gallow Wood Media on Sunday (13th) to complete the recording of the Falling Through Freedom EP vocals and Unit One Studios on the 25thfor the 2021 EP. These will hopefully be the final recording sessions for both Patreon EPs.

The 2021 EP will contain 5 brand new songs not included on the recent album After Extinction and the Falling Through Freedom EP will be re-recordings of 5 songs to celebrate the release of that album 10 years ago which will include two songs, not on the original album. These will only be available on CD through Patreon. You can get both from £3 here.

DRUM RECORDING FOR FALLING THROUGH FREEDOM EP COMPLETED

On Friday the drums were recorded for the Falling Through Freedom EP. The EP which will be released as part of a Patreon exclusive set to celebrate 10 years of the debut album, will contain new artwork and two songs not on the original album, and three songs from the album re-recorded with the current line-up. Liam recorded the drums with Talon Payne at Gallow Wood Media. Both Patreon EPs have been delayed due to the Covid-19 restrictions over the last few years pushing the new album back and we’re currently working through the backlog.

NEW ALBUM UPDATE – UPDATE ON TWO NEW EP’S AND UK TOUR

After Extinction

The album has made some progress in recent weeks with the addition of keys and some last-minute changes to some of the vocals. The reason this album has been more complicated than previous releases is it has been recorded between two studios (Unit One and Gallow Wood Media) and both studios have had a hand in the editing process whereas I and the band have overseen the mixing process in a more involved way than previous releases. It’s not where our expertise is, but due to the UK Lockdowns over the COVID-19 pandemic, we had to work in this way. This has also meant the costs associated with the album are much greater than our previous releases. Broadly speaking the project is almost finished and we are sorry about the delay.

Kaine 21’ EP

All the instruments have been recorded, I am in the final stages of finishing the lyrics before I book in vocal recording sessions. This EP contains 5 brand new songs and has been delayed largely because of the backlog to do with the new album. So far all of the recordings have taken place at Unit One Studios and no editing or mixing has taken place.

Kaine 22’ EP – Falling Through Freedom Anniversary Box Set

We have finished recording all the bass and guitars for the new EP at Gallow Wood Media, with Liam currently working on what he would like to do with the drums. This EP will be included in the anniversary set of the album, which will include the “demo” album, recorded by the 2011 line-up, the original 2012 album, the 2016 remaster, and the new EP.

Lillian Axe and Riot Act Tour

I have also been very busy working on the tour. I am pleased to say the transport and hotels are now all booked up. In terms of crew, Alex Odinson and Charles Franklin will be handing roadie duties which include everything from loading in, to providing tech support, looking after merchandise, and recording video footage of the gigs.

All t-shirt pre-orders have now been sent out with signed posters. In recent weeks I have written to a number of our Bandcamp buyers via the post with invitations to the tour, I have been using our emailing lists to send our targeted emails and videos to promote the events and obviously running an extensive social media campaign. I have also been supporting Lillian Axe with their social media campaign.

We will be using this tour to promote our most recent album Reforge The Steel, which was released just before the Covid-19 pandemic and this restricted the number of gigs we could do to promote it.

Opportunities like this do not come around often, and whether or not we get this kind of opportunity again depends on the success of this tour, which is why I am working flat out to try and make every show a sell-out. You can get tickets from here.

RAGE SADLER COMPLETES EP GUITAR TRACKING AND REMAINING NEW ALBUM VOCALS

Kaine guitarist/vocalist Rage Sadler has completed the tracking of the 22′ EP guitars for the Falling Through Freedom anniversary set and remaining vocals for the new album After Extinction. These were completed with Talon Payne and Gallow Wood Media yesterday.

The bands new album is close to completion, on the 21′ Patreon EP the lyrics are being finalised ready for recording the vocals, and with the 22′ EP all that is left to track is the drums and vocals. All three releases have been delayed due to the backlog caused by the Covid 19 Pandemic.

Liam recording drums for the EP last month

We will be returning to the studio tomorrow to begin recording the bass and guitars for the Patreon 21′ EP. The recording was held up by Covid restrictions (as was the current album recording) which is why there has been a delay in finishing the EP. The CD will be exclusive to our Patreon subscribers paying £2.50 and more. You can join our Patreon here.

KAINE TO BEGIN TRACKING NEW 5 TRACK EP NEXT WEEKEND – LIAM ETHERIDGE TO TRACK AT UNIT ONE 

We are now finally able to track the delayed 21’ Patreon EP. Liam will be heading down to Unit One Studio’s once more (29th – 30th of January) to begin tracking all 5 of the new EP tracks. The EP CD will be exclusive to our £2.50 or more Patreon’s, which can be ordered here.  The EP has a much darker tone than our previous releases.  

KAINE RETURN TO GALLOW WOOD MEDIA TOMORROW TO FINISH BRAND NEW ALBUM + UNIT ONE REHEARSALS

Last weeks sessions at Unit One

We will be returning to Gallow Wood Media, which is just outside of Great Dunmow, tomorrow to track what we hope will be the final backing vocals for the new Kaine album, as well as a few minor vocal overdubs. This will leave the album complete from a recording perspective. 

After these sessions we will then head over to Unit One in Colchester where we will continue to rehearse for our new EP recordings as well as our return to gigging in March.
