“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.

The EP will have new versions of 4 songs from the original album plus a unreleased track from the era. Pre-orders are already available with the option to get both the CD and the t-shirt for £10. After the pre order period the CD will be £5 and the T-Shirt will be £10. As ever members will get 10% off. The CD and shirt will both be limited edition so once stocks are gone it will be gone for good – order here.
To mark 5 years of The Waystone album we’ve done our first official patch to accompany the new Waystone EP which will be recorded later this year.
This patch is high quality, full colour and features the original “Evil Eyes” t-shirt design. Each patch comes with a free download of The Waystone album. Limited to just 50. Members get 10% off all orders.
Kaine’s album artwork from The Waystone (and t-shirt design) has been used without permission by Qwertee, a mass t-shirt printing company. The company has ripped off the artwork and design for their Waystone Inn shirts and hoodies (seen above).
Qwertee is based at Qwertee, Block 3, Harcourt Road, Dublin, Ireland and their Company Number is 476522. Former lead guitarist Anthony Murch (who performed on The Waystone) brought the image theft to the attention of the band this morning when the product had been advertised to him.
Yesterday in the fan group (can be found here) Rage announced the plan for a special E.P. to commemorate 5 years of The Waystone. The Waystone was the second album from Kaine and was a very popular release that still sells to this today.
For the five-year
celebration of the album the current line-up will record a limited edition EP
with 4 songs from the album plus one previously unreleased song from that era of
the band. The CD will come bundled with a brand-new t-shirt and will be
recorded later this year.
Rage said: “To commemorate the 5th anniversary of The Waystone we’ll be re-recording 4 of the tracks from the album along with a previously unreleased track sometime later this year. In order to be able to afford the recording of this E.P. and printing of the new shirt, we have put up a pre-order link to enable you to support the release before we start to record it. It’s just £10 for both the CD and the shirt with 10% off for all our members.
As you will be aware, we’re nearly finished with the new Kaine album, the new Kaine live album recorded back in April and have yet another live album planned to be recorded in November (tickets available from Bandcamp for just £3.) so we’re incredibly busy, we’ve even began writing new material for a follow up album to Reforge The Steel… so please bear with us while we put together all this material for you! It will be with you sooner than you may think…”
This project is entirely fan funded, so you can contribute by pre-ordering here. The CD/Shirt package is just £10 to pre-order from here. Every penny coming in will pay for the recording/production – you can pre order here.
So, it’s roughly 9 months on from when the walls started to fall in on Kaine, with Chris, Saxon and Stevo departing in quick succession after releasing the A Crisis of Faith album. I thought it would be a good time to update people on exactly where we are now. I had taken then band off the road during April to begin writing the new Kaine record when it all fell apart.
In the months that followed the departures, we put a lot of time into rebuilding the band and getting the new line-up to gel. We have been rehearsing pretty much constantly since the new lineup formed, we had our first gig together in Norwich on May 26th and have played 22 shows together since this band got together. We have gradually eased the A Crisis of Faith material out of the set and have replaced it with new material. When the previous band split up, I decided to start working immediately on a new record and wrote a number of songs that I have been revising since May, and that the band have been rehearsing and playing live. We are now playing sets almost entirely comprised of this new material, we have almost finished the final demos for the new album and we’ll starting to record it at the end of this month.
I said in a previous blog that if I could turn it around and save Kaine after the entire line-up split up earlier this year that would be my greatest achievement in music. I can safely say hat so far it has been, and to be frank it has been nothing short of a miracle. I can honestly say my “retirement” speech was typed out and ready to go live, and I’d already talked to Liam, who joined in April, about the end of the band. My intention was to call it quits and leave music entirely.
Fortunately, we were able to save it. It has been a lot of work, many long rehearsals and naturally we’ve been trying to convince people the band is still as good as it ever was on the road, which many people agree it still is but some I can tell still need to be won over, but this is to be expected with such a radical change. There is a mentality about line-ups that still exists within the minds of many music fans, that somehow the line-up is almost sacred and when that changes so does the band, and in some cases that is right but people will find the new material will sound very much in line with what we have done in the past. Many also didn’t realise that I was the only original member in the past line-up anyway.
I am looking forward to getting this new record out there and hopefully the band can recover and push on from here. We’ll be entering our tenth year come 2019, and it’s been a hell of a ride so far even if we haven’t quite made it yet. We’ll be celebrating the 10th anniversary with a show at Colchester Arts Centre in April, which will be supported by A Bribe for the Ferryman and Osmium Guillotine. Dan and Josh will be joining me on stage for some early Kaine material as well as the final ever performance of the A Crisis of Faith line-up. We’ll be giving away a live album and a t-shirt with every ticket, which can be ordered here.
Alongside writing, rehearsing and preparing for the new Kaine album, I have been doing the washing up in the background of all the follow up releases from A Crisis of Faith. I was able to design and release the new vinyl with the help of Pointy Halo Productions to ensure that sounded top, and I have to say it’s the nicest thing we’ve produced merch wise to this date and of course I had to release A Crisis of Faith live. This was recorded last year early on in Chelmsford at the Asylum by Short Stack Studios but with everything that happened, had to be put on a back burner while I rebuilt the band. Previously Dan and Chris were the bands two audio guys, I never dabbled in mixing or editing, anything like that but with those talents both departing I had to learn and thus the live album is my first ever go at doing any production ever. You can grab a vinyl from here and a live album here, both are limited and once they sell out, we won’t be doing any more.
Finally, the new album is coming and will be released next year – the theme of the album is the re forging of the band, rebirth and moving onto the next stage. There is a lot of optimism and hope with the new line-up that we can in fact turn it around.
As ever, I thank everyone who stuck by me over the last 9 months and offered their love, support and guidance to keep going and I hope sincerely that I haven’t let you down. I really hope you enjoy this new album.
