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!

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.

THE WAYSTONE SELLS OUT ON CD FOR FINAL TIME

The album, originally released in 2014 has sold out for the 4th and final time on CD with vinyl version having sold out a number of years ago. A full statement on how many copies were sold/streamed will be released at a later date. The Waystone is Kaine’s best selling album and best known for the lead single “Iron Lady”.

The 2020 version of Iron Lady

There will be no further print runs of this album, it has been removed from digital platforms and will become a Bandcamp Members only release which can be found here along with many other exclusives including the bands debut album Falling Through Freedom, which is also no longer available to buy. Some copies remain on re-sellers sites such as Discogs which can be found here.

The band re-recorded for of the songs from the album for a limited edition EP release which can still be bought on CD here. Less than a 100 copies remain to buy on CD. A handful of Waystone patches are also available to order here. Both of these were released to celebrate the 5 year anniversary of the original album.

THE WAYSTONE EP SCORES 9/10 WITH METAL GODS TV

EP Artwork

The Waystone EP has scored 9/10 with Metal Gods TV. This is the first review of the EP, which features 4 re-recorded songs from the original album (The Waystone [2014]) and a brand new song (Monument).

Metal Gods TV said that: “The effort of independent groups to generate interesting musical works with a level of quality comparable to that of bands already consolidated in the genre is admirable, in the case of Kaine, it is an album that will keep you attentive from beginning to end, since each one of the songs has a different proposal adorn by that influence of the new wave of British heavy metal and maintains that very old school sound with a fresh and modern touch. I have expectations about the future of this band as it has a pretty solid musical identity and has the elements to shine soon.”
