KAINE COMPLETE TRACKING FOR NEW EP AND ARE SET TO RESUME NEW ALBUM REHEARSALS THIS WEEKEND

Yesterday Kaine finished tracking the new EP at Gallow Wood Media’s new location in Margaret Roding in Essex. The EP was originally recorded live at The Smokehouse in Ipswich, with additional tracking taking place AT Gallow Wood Media’s original Danbury location late last year. The EP is now being edited, mixed, and mastered by Talon Payne who has worked with the band on their previous two live album releases and The Waystone EP.

The tracklisting will be:

  1. Reforge The Steel
  2. Black
  3. Rebirth
  4. Loudwire
  5. Master of Mankind
  6. Monument

It will also be the first Kaine release to feature the new logo and it will be self-titled. Artwork can be seen above.

The band will also be returning to action on Sunday when they hit Unit One studios in Colchester to begin rehearsing the new album ready to begin recording the album in full later this year.

PIONEER MUSIC CLOSES AFTER 13 YEARS

Kaine’s last ever rehearsal at Pioneer Music

Kaine’s regular rehearsal rooms, Pioneer Music in Colchester have now closed after 13 years of service to local bands and musicians. It is an end of an era for the band who will be returning to rehearsal in a few weeks to resume work on the bands new album.

“Hi all, to those who don’t already know, I am closing Pioneer Music in the next week or so.

I’ve been thinking about moving on for a couple of years now, and having a pretty empty studio for almost a year has helped me make that final decision.

I’d like to thank everyone for their support over the past 13 years, I won’t start naming names because there are so many and I am bound to forget important ones!

Also I’d like to wish everyone good luck with their future plans, whether it is music or not, I wish you all the very best. It’s been a blast and I have tons of great memories of working with you all, for which I am eternally grateful.

So long and thanks for all the fish.” – Matthew Abbott

Kaine started rehearsing at Pioneer Music back in 2011 and every line-up of the band has rehearsed there, bar the original since the original band formed in 2009. We would like to thank Maz for his many years of excellent service to the local music community as well as treating us exceptionally over the past ten years, which included collecting Liam’s keys from the roof of Bartech!

KAINE BEGIN WORK ON NEW EP WITH GALLOW WOOD MEDIA ON SATURDAY

The tracks recorded at The Smokehouse, Ipswich last Friday (4/12/2020) will be used as for a brand new self titled EP. Kaine will again be joining Talon Payne at Gallow Wood Media in Chelmsford on Saturday ahead of their show at The Music Room Ipswich.

The tracklisting will be

  1. Reforge The Steel
  2. Black
  3. Rebirth
  4. Loudwire
  5. Master of Mankind
  6. Monument

After the work at the studio is completed the band will head straight to Ipswich to play a now sold out show at The Music Room. The EP will be released sometime in the new year.

REFORGE THE STEEL TO BE RE-RELEASED ON CD – EVERYTHING YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT THE NEW VERSION OF THE ALBUM PACKAGE + NEW STREAMING VERSION

New Versions of all the tracks

Following the positive feedback on the inclusion of more extensive backing vocals on our Waystone EP, we’ve updated the album tracks to feature full backing including backing vocal harmonies. The album has received a light remix and remaster to accommodate the new vocals.

The Dragon Reborn (Rebirth) Extended Version

The new version of the album includes an extended version of the song the Dragon Reborn which includes new lead and backing vocals and a remix.

Black

This version of the album features the “single” version from the past release which includes the additional solo from former band member Anthony Murch as well as a remix.

Bonus Tracks

We’ve included The Waystone EP as bonus tracks as they are recorded by the same line-up and production team they fit nicely with the updated version of Reforge The Steel.

Production

These were manufactured by the same company who produced our very well received vinyl sleeves/LP’s for A Crisis of Faith.

Super Jewel Case

The album is now housed in a Super Jewell Case. These are more resilient than the regular Jewel cases and are typically more resilient to scratches and damage than the traditional CD case.

Industry Standard Replication

Unlike our past CD’s which were duplicated, for this version of the album the CD we’ve used the replication method which is much higher quality. These are replicated to the highest industry standards.

CD Label

Following feedback from our fans, we have ensured that the CD labels on these are of extremely high quality and not “sticky” as many have complained in the past with previous releases.

Full Colour Lyric Booklet

We’ve included for the first time since our debut album’s initial print a full lyric book, which features the photography of Rachel Woods and is displayed in full colour. Every existing Patreon and Bandcamp as of the print of that booklet is also included in the credit sections.

Collectors Series

This will be the first release as part of our collectors series offering our releases in the highest quality physical format. We’ll be revisiting our back catalogue to update our previous releases in this fashion as we move forward. We want to offer the best possible experience for those who are buying albums and we feel this new format will deliver a much better product for our fans.

Definitive Edition

On top of a new physical release, we will be re-releasing the album onto streaming platforms as the “Definitive Edition” which can be found here. This version will include all of the updated tracks, The Waystone EP and the original album.

WORK CONTINUES ON NEW ALBUM THIS WEEKEND

Last weeks work on the new album

The band will again be returning to Pioneer Music Studio to continue wring and rehearsals on their new album. As of last week Kaine were up to their 8th song for the new record with more in the pipeline. You can watch the session above on YouTube.
