All band activity suspended due to UK Lock down measures – Update

As we’ve had a few enquires as to where certain merch items are we thought it would be best to make a clear statement as to whats happening with the band during the Covid 19 lock down here in the UK.

  • All shows are cancelled unless stated otherwise by the venue
  • The Waystone EP recording is suspended due to the closure of the recording studios due to Covid 19
  • Rehearsals are also cancelled due to the studios being shut due to the Covid 19 lock down
  • Posting items is more difficult due to limited times and items being taken by the UK Post Office
  • New album writing rehearsals have also been suspended although we’re collaborating between ourselves from home working on songs for the new album

We are sorry for the delays and we’re doing our best. We’ll finish the EP and get the CD’s to you as soon as we can but the studios are simply closed at the moment and we cannot get in to finish recording it, let alone mix and master it. We’ve not even seen each other in person since March 13th 2020.

On items you have ordered some have been posted already but please bare with us on the delays – the Post Office is only working a small number of hours, has limited staff and will not always take our items as they are not a priority. You will get everything you have ordered ASAP. You will have digital copy’s of everything you have ordered to enjoy on the bandcamp app.

In the meantime please stay inside and stay safe,

What the press have said about the album…

“It is probably the best NWOBHM influenced album I have heard since about 1984. Take any one of the big hitters from that era, still playing or not and they would have had wet dreams over an album this good. In fact, if an alien landed and asked for the best British Metal album I could not go back to my scratchy, old vinyl’s. I would have to choose this one and for me that is no easy statement to make” – Jace Media

“Kaine’s A Crisis of Faith goes above and beyond to deliver the rare album that is all killer no filler. If you dig British Metal with great melody, engaging riffs and terrific song writing look no further. I may have found my album of the year already!” – Metal Nation

“The listener can sense why Rage has been compared to Iron Maiden’s Bruce Dickinson on multiple occasions: his voice is strong and hard, yet still able to meet those high and long notes commonly associated with Classic Rock.”- Grab The Mic

“Voice in Hell’ contains some of front-man Rage Sadler’s strongest vocals, before ‘Behind The Preacher’s Eyes’ unleashes possibly the best song that Judas Priest never wrote. Album closer ‘Alone (In My Forgotten Rage)’ opens with haunting piano, then a burst of feedback flings us headlong into a slice of pure, unadulterated British metal, which ensures that proceedings end on a glorious high. It’s the sort of track that deserves to be described by future generations as “anthemic” and is the kind of song that, for a newbie to the band such as myself, leaves you wanting to check out the back catalogue.” – Totally Tankered

A Crisis of Faith downloaded/streamed over 18,000 times since release

18k

Since the albums release in February, A Crisis of Faith has accumulated a total of 18,049 streams and direct downloads across all platforms, such as Spotify, Deezer, Google Play, Bandcamp and many more. The album has also sold out on CD once already and a release on vinyl is close to being ready. A limited “Ghost” version of the album also sold out within a few hours of its release in March.

Although the album has been successful digitally so far, due to the low payment share offered to bands for digital sales, this only represents a total of £355.83, which is why CD versions of the album include additional tracks as an incentive to buy the physical releases. You can order the album on CD here.

A Crisis of Faith – Blog 2

RSB

From the Ashes ….

It’s been a while since I wrote one of these blogs. My reasoning is quite simple, I have been busy rebuilding the band following the collapse of the A Crisis of Faith line-up starting back in April, when Chris announced his departure and was followed by Saxon and Stevo thus ending the line-up that had been in place since the start of 2016.

I have already said numerous times how devastating this was to me, especially after what we had achieved with the last record and as a live band and to have it end so quickly and abruptly was easily my lowest point over the 9 years of Kaine. For me, it was also the greatest challenge ever faced as I had essentially a fortnight to rebuild the band, and chances are it could have even been the end of me as a musician and I honestly thought it was.

However, for whatever reason I have been blessed with another chance to succeed in music and to continue with Kaine. Liam joined us on drums while the majority of the old line-up were still in the band, and not long after we held auditions for guitar and bass and have been incredibly blessed to welcome both Toby and Isaac into the fold.

These three young guys have come in and had to catch up with much of the bands back catalogue in a very short amount of time. They have all shown a great level of dedication and professionalism in under taking the task and working with me to get the new band gig ready in a very short amount of time. Very few people believed we could manage that, and to be honest they would probably be right in assuming so. It was one hell of a challenge to be faced with. However, we are here now, approaching our 5th gig and as a line-up growing into a stronger unit on stage, are already playing a new song live amongst an hour set which we have already headlined with. In fact, we played it with such ferocity that Isaac managed to cut his finger open and had to come to rehearsals the next day bandaged up. Those who came were stunned that the band was still holding up it’s same high standards with an entirely new band which had been together roughly a month in total.

Despite all the problems caused by members leaving, I remain committed to releasing the rest of A Crisis of Faith and have been working incredibly hard with Breed Media to produce a high quality coloured vinyl version of the album, as well as mixing our 2017 live album which should be released soon after. This has been a lot of work between rebuilding the band, but as I said, I have an obligation to A Crisis of Faith whether the line-up split up or not and of course to everyone who paid extra for the pre-orders who helped us fund the recording in the first place. The good news is A Crisis of Faith has since sold out on CD and we’ve had to order more.

Because of all this work with the new line-up and A Crisis of Faith I have had to ditch the streaming on Facebook and YouTube stuff I was doing earlier this year, but once I get settled again I will resume what I was doing.

We’re now getting new booking coming forward with people very impressed with the new line-up, and while we have taken a knock, ultimately, I am just grateful to be playing at all right now.

I hope to see you on the road.
Love, Rage
