Kaine has finally recorded all of the scratch tracks and is now ready to book into the studio to begin recording their 5th album, and the second from the “Reforge The Steel” line-up of Sadler/Etheridge/Woods/Healy. The album will have 9 new tracks written by all members of the band. The album has been postponed several times due to the Covid-19 pandemic, however the band is hopeful that the album can be recorded without further delay with vaccination rates increasing and the infection rates decreasing across the board in England.
The scratch tracks are the base tracks the band will record to in the studio, so its important that these are absolutely accurate to make the recording process as smooth and accurate as possible.
On the EP, which was recorded by back in December, the second version has finally been mixed and the release is now ready to be printed to CD. The EP will contain 2 versions, the first being the “Gallow Wood” mix by Talon Payne and the second is the “Twisted Illusion” mix by Matt Jones with both mixes being very different from one another.
The band will be back at Unit One Studio’s in Colchester today to continue work on the new album. Rage and Toby will be working to complete the studio scratch tracks this morning before heading over to the studio for rehearsals. The scratch tracks are the tracks the band will record to in the studio. The band is hoping to begin recording the album as soon as possible.
