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.]

We’ll be again passing on the discounts on Friday, May 1st 2020 when Bandcamp drops their fees in support of artists again. We do remind people that there will be delays to orders during the lock down period but we will ensure everything will get to you as soon as possible and that digital items are available with every purchase in the meantime. Members will be able to double their discounts.

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.

Kaine to Release Reforge The Steel on Friday (18-10-2019)

New Enhanced Album Art for Reforge The Steel

Kaine will release their new album Reforge The Steel this Friday via Bandcamp. The album art has been enhanced (again done by Kaine’s long serving artist Silencer 8) and updated for the release (above).

The band began recording in November 2018 (just 9 months after the release of A Crisis of Faith) and recording was concluded in June of this year. The album was finally mixed and mastered last month and is now ready for full release. Reforge The Steel was again produced by Carl B of Pointy Halo Productions alongside Sheldon Jolly, the same team who worked on A Crisis of Faith.

The bulk of the material was written between April and October of last year with many songs being staples of the bands current sets, two live versions of the album tracks will soon be available, the first being Kaine X Live 2019 (already available to purchase, just awaiting mastering) and Reforge The Steel live which will be recorded next month at the B2 Norwich (tickets available from here).

An additional live EP of the songs will be made exclusively available to bandcamp members next week. Members will also get 10% off the CD and additional merch for the album – to join as a member click here.

The new line-up having formed in May 2018

It’s the first release to feature the line-up of Rage Sadler (guitars and vocals), Liam Etheridge (drums), Toby Woods (lead guitar) and Isaac Healy (bass).

Kaine Reforged! The new album has been finished as of today!

Kaine’s new album Reforge the Steel has today been finished with the final mixing and mastering taking place by Pointy Halo Productions based at Redwall Studio, Bury.

The album has been recorded by Carl Brewer again alongside Sheldon James Jolly who both worked on the band’s previous album A Crisis of Faith.
