KAINE RETURN TO UNIT ONE TODAY FOR REHEARSALS + EXTINCTION AFTER EP TRACKING FINISHED AND MORE

On Friday the vocals and backing vocals were tracked for the Extinction After EP which means the recording is now complete and the release can now be edited, mixed and mastered. You can hear a preview here.

Later the same day we played the Brewhouse, Colchester for the first time alongside Heathen Kings and Osmium Guillotine. It was absolutely jam packed and it was great to see so many people supporting live Heavy Metal in Colchester. We will be back in Colchester on the 14th at Coda! You can attend by clicking here.

Today we’ll be rehearsing as a three piece at Unit One as Toby has come down with a very nasty flu.

WE RETURN TO REHEARSALS TODAY + GENERAL UPDATE ON THE IMMEDIATE PLANS FOR KAINE

As stated in previous posts, we’ve not rehearsed in several weeks due to Liam suffering with a significant injury. To his credit he has still played the last two gigs in that state, one being a 2-hour set in Sheffield and the other a gig down in Kent a few weeks back, but we agreed it would be best to try and limit what he did while he was in pain. He also recorded his drums for the Falling Through Freedom EP in that period.

We’ve still been very busy, we’ve signed and sent out the album pre-orders on CD, we have finished recording the Falling Through Freedom EP, we’ve been working on getting the artwork finished for both EPs with the Extinction After EP completed and Falling Through Freedom on its way. The new art for the EP will on the t-shirt/patch for the 2022 Patreon package. Again, we are sorry for the delay on both.

By next Friday, I will have finished tracking vocals for Extinction After, having completed the Falling Through Freedom vocals last week. As stated previously, recording and finishing an album and two EPs in one year has been the most work I have ever done with this band, especially given we had a tour thrown in a few months back!

Our last rehearsal session on October 30th

Today we’re back to rehearsals, focussing on our gig at the Brewhouse, Colchester next week and getting our set together for that, plus ensuring we’re up to standard in terms of playing together. We’ve never played the Brewhouse before either, so I am looking forward to it. We are playing alongside Heathen Kings and Osmium Guillotine so the night will have a very traditional Metal feel. The gigs on Friday next week, and it’s free to get into from 7pm.

I am hopeful we can try and get back to a normal gigging routine next year, however with costs rising in the UK and with yet more tax increases announced this week, it’s going to be interesting to see how bands and venues survive in 2023. It could be the toughest year yet.

REHEARSALS TO RESUME THIS WEEKEND

We are pleased to report that Liam now feels able to return to rehearsals and we will be back in Unit One on Sunday to resume regular rehearsal sessions. He has been suffering from a trapped sciatic nerve and subsequent muscle-related issues in his back. He had recorded, and played the last two gigs in serious pain, and had requested some time off to recover. We’ll be working on our set for the Brewhouse show this weekend.

VOCAL RECORDING SESSIONS BOOKED IN FOR PATRON EPS THIS MONTH

Rage will be heading over to Gallow Wood Media on Sunday (13th) to complete the recording of the Falling Through Freedom EP vocals and Unit One Studios on the 25thfor the 2021 EP. These will hopefully be the final recording sessions for both Patreon EPs.

The 2021 EP will contain 5 brand new songs not included on the recent album After Extinction and the Falling Through Freedom EP will be re-recordings of 5 songs to celebrate the release of that album 10 years ago which will include two songs, not on the original album. These will only be available on CD through Patreon. You can get both from £3 here.

REHEARSALS AT UNIT ONE TODAY FOR NOVEMBER 5TH SHOW IN CHATHAM

We are back at Unit One Studio’s, Colchester for our gig next week at Poco Loco in Chatham. Tickets are available on the door from 8pm or in advance for a reduced price here. We’ll be playing alongside Stormborn and Konkrete.

DRUM RECORDING FOR FALLING THROUGH FREEDOM EP COMPLETED

On Friday the drums were recorded for the Falling Through Freedom EP. The EP which will be released as part of a Patreon exclusive set to celebrate 10 years of the debut album, will contain new artwork and two songs not on the original album, and three songs from the album re-recorded with the current line-up. Liam recorded the drums with Talon Payne at Gallow Wood Media. Both Patreon EPs have been delayed due to the Covid-19 restrictions over the last few years pushing the new album back and we’re currently working through the backlog.
