KAINE WILL NOT PROGRESS WITH MANAGEMENT OFFER

After discussions with Bonewood Music these past few weeks it was mutually agreed due to different operating practices and philosophies it was decided that it was best that both parties didn’t progress with the management deal. Front man Rage Sadler will resume self-management for the band, although the band will continue to seek professional management ahead of their new album release.

Rage said: “It was clear that the way we work, and how Bonewood Music works are very different approaches and we have decided to move on from the offer. I will resume the management of the band as I have done before. Over the past 12 years, I have been able to manage the band with a degree of success with no financial or industry support as an independent, and while having that industry support moving forward would be advantageous, we come from a strong position that we are already an established underground act in the UK, and therefore will only move onto a deal and management approach that suits us best. Management is a cost and as an independent we have to spend our limited resources as wisely as possible. Ultimately we have to look out for our own interests and we will continue to work hard to make this new record and the band a success.”

We thank Bonewood Music for their interest in Kaine and wish them the best for the future.

KAINE SET TO SIGN MANAGEMENT DEAL WITH BONEWOOD MUSIC – MAJOR PLANS FOR NEW ALBUM RELEASE

UK underground Heavy Metal act Kaine are set to sign a management deal with Bonewood Music and will be henceforth managed by Scott Canty. Scott has a range of experience in the music business and will be developing a plan for the new album launch later this year.

Scott said: “Kaine have been on my radar for a while now – they have always been an extremely active band, and have an army of fans to show for it.

“Having spoken with Rage, it seemed not only the natural but also the perfect time to welcome them aboard Bonewood Music. We shall be helping them shape their next campaign, and grow their fanbase – not to mention it’s about time these guys had some top music videos, I’m sure the fans will be excited to hear that!”

“Watch this space, we have some big plans.”

Since 2014 Kaine had been managed solely by frontman Rage Sadler who added: “I have managed the band to the best of my abilities over the past 7 years, and prior to that before we had management. Although I have worked to keep the band going, I simply do not have the contacts, skills, or knowledge to take the band any further at this stage which is why working with Scott on the new era for the band was a perfect fit for us going forward. Naturally, our long-term goal is to progress our career further as a band and reach a wider audience starting with the brand new album.”

“This was the perfect time to make a change.”

The band will be issuing further updates in the coming weeks and will soon begin record the new album.

BANDCAMP SALE! Friday, May 1st!

[A few Fridays ago, we waived our revenue share to help artists and labels impacted by the Covid-19 pandemic. The Bandcamp community went above and beyond, spending $4.3 million on music and merch in just 24 hours. It was an inspiring day, and we heard many requests to do it again, so we’re going to do exactly that (and a bit more).

We’ll announce the details of this initiative to everyone next Monday, but we wanted to give our artists and labels a heads up that the first step is coming soon: on Friday, May 1st, we’re going to waive our revenue share again. Stay tuned for more information next week, and be sure to check out our new Bandcamp Artist Guide for recommendations that will help you maximize your sales on May 1st and beyond.]

Bandcamp Sale in Response to Bandcamp waiving revenue share on all sales this Friday

We will be holding a one off Bandcamp sale tomorrow in response to fees being waived by the site in response to the current Covid-19 pandemic. We will be passing on these savings to you, we have many limited items that will be available to purchase which once sold out, will be gone for good and these included Kaine X items, A Crisis of Faith items, Waystone items and many more. Kaine members will get an additional discount.

We’ll still be offering free downloads to anyone currently unwell or stuck in self isolation – for details please click here – https://kaine-metal.com/2020/03/16/free-download-code-for-those-currently-in-self-isolation/

See Bandcamp’s statement below:

“The Covid-19 pandemic is in full force, and artists have been hit especially hard as tours and shows are being canceled for the foreseeable future. With such a major revenue stream drying up almost entirely, finding ways to continue supporting artists in the coming months is now an urgent priority for anyone who cares about music and the artists who create it. The good news is that we’re already seeing many fans going above and beyond to support artists across Bandcamp.

To raise even more awareness around the pandemic’s impact on musicians everywhere, we’re waiving our revenue share on sales this Friday, March 20 (from midnight to midnight Pacific Time), and rallying the Bandcamp community to put much needed money directly into artists’ pockets.

For many artists, a single day of boosted sales can mean the difference between being able to pay rent or not. Still, we consider this just a starting point. Musicians will continue to feel the effects of lost touring income for many months to come, so we’re also sharing some ideas below on how fans can support the artists they love and how artists can give fans new, creative ways to provide support.

It may sound simple, but the best way to help artists is with your direct financial support, and we hope you’ll join us on Friday and through the coming months as we work to support artists in this challenging time.
