Kaine, who suspended their new album writing and rehearsal sessions last month due to the increasing risk of COVID-19 will be returning to rehearsals and writing for the new album this Sunday. Since the bands last rehearsal Pioneer Music in Colchester has closed down, so the band will be moving their rehearsals to Unit One studios, also in Colchester to resume work on the new album. The writing and recording of the new album has been suspended twice since the start of the pandemic. This weeks rehearsals will be filmed for YouTube and will be a very much get back up to speed session for the band.
Kaine’s regular rehearsal rooms, Pioneer Music in Colchester have now closed after 13 years of service to local bands and musicians. It is an end of an era for the band who will be returning to rehearsal in a few weeks to resume work on the bands new album.
“Hi all, to those who don’t already know, I am closing Pioneer Music in the next week or so.
I’ve been thinking about moving on for a couple of years now, and having a pretty empty studio for almost a year has helped me make that final decision.
I’d like to thank everyone for their support over the past 13 years, I won’t start naming names because there are so many and I am bound to forget important ones!
Also I’d like to wish everyone good luck with their future plans, whether it is music or not, I wish you all the very best. It’s been a blast and I have tons of great memories of working with you all, for which I am eternally grateful.
So long and thanks for all the fish.” – Matthew Abbott
Kaine started rehearsing at Pioneer Music back in 2011 and every line-up of the band has rehearsed there, bar the original since the original band formed in 2009. We would like to thank Maz for his many years of excellent service to the local music community as well as treating us exceptionally over the past ten years, which included collecting Liam’s keys from the roof of Bartech!
Essex is back under Tier 2 after the full COVID-19 lockdown of England concluded this week. This means that rehearsals are legal and recording studios/rehearsal spaces can still reman open under the current Government guidelines.
Kaine will return to Pioneer Music Studio on Sunday where they will continue working on their new album and prepare for their EP recording and live streamed session on December 4th. You can attend the event by clicking here.
Kaine is back at work on the new album this Sunday at Pioneer Music. The band is currently working on 7 songs for the album with more planned over the next few weeks. The band had originally planned to release a new album in 2020 however work on the album was suspended earlier this year due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
It was confirmed earlier this week that rehearsals were still legal in the UK under the current lockdown and as a result Kaine will continue their new album writing and rehearsals at Pioneer Music on Sunday.
Culture Secretary Oliver Dowden has provided information in response to a question about rehearsals and streams he said: “Arts venues are places of work, so people can come into them for work, if it cannot be undertaken from home. This includes rehearsals and performance. Audiences are not permitted.” The Musicians Union have also confirmed that recording and rehearsal studios are set to remain open during the new national Lockdown in England here.
Kaine will continue work on their new album at Pioneer Music this weekend.

Kaine will return to work on the new album this weekend at Pioneer Music in Colchester.
Despite Essex being in Tier 2 Lockdown rehearsals for bands are still legal in the county and Pioneer is still open for business. Earlier this week the Police were called to Pioneer after a tipoff to investigate Osmium Guillotine’s rehearsal there, however all the correct COVID measures were in place and everyone was adhering to the rules so no action was taken.
Last weekend a set of new band pictures were taken by Rachel W. Photography which can be seen on her Instagram page.
From midnight on Saturday 17 October, Essex will move from medium to high alert level after Government agreed with Essex County Council to increase local lockdown measures following a dramatic increases of COVID-19 cases over the last few days throughout the area. Throughout the East Anglia region Norwich and North Norfolk have also seen a spike, as have places such as Ipswich, Cambridge and Saffron Walden.
However, under current guidelines recording studios as a place of work can remain open. Pioneer Music will continue to operate a COVID-19 safe environment including the wearing of masks when entering the hallways and other communal areas as well as a one way system around the building to prevent people from coming into direct contact with one another between sessions. The rehearsal rooms have already been made safe and are cleaned regularly.
Kaine will continue to rehearse while it remains legal to do so in Essex.
Kaine will again be at Pioneer Music this Sunday working on a brand new album. So far the band has 6 new songs currently being worked on at rehearsals (which can be seen on the video above) with more to come in the following weeks.
Yesterday the band announced that a new version of the album Reforge The Steel will be released soon following the recording of addition backing vocals last weekend at Gallow Wood Media. This version will come in a new package and contain new bonus tracks.
