WORK CONTINUES ON NEW ALBUM AT PIONEER + RETURN TO LIVE PERFORMANCES UPDATE

Last weeks sessions at Pioneer

Kaine will today return to Pioneer Music studio in Colchester to continue working on the 5th Kaine album. The first four songs are already being rehearsed, revised and worked on by the band with more to come in the following weeks. You can see the latest progress on the link above.

The band had also discussed a return to live performances, however with loud music still illegal in the UK following COVID-19 and new restrictions being brought in for groups of more than 6 people these plans have been postponed. Despite post-lock-down measures being put in place, the cases of COVID-19 are rising again leading to further measures being taken to stop any further spread of the disease including localised lock-downs in certain parts of the UK.

KAINE: PLANS BEING MADE TO RETURN TO PLAYING LIVE

Kaine are currently making preparations for their first live performance post lockdown with more details to be announced soon. The band hasn’t played live since March 2020 at Burr Fest.

Even as things slowly return to normal in the UK, we continue to advise anyone in the at risk group to stay away from live performances while there is still the potential to become infected with COVID-19.

Bandcamp Sale in Response to Bandcamp waiving revenue share on all sales this Friday

We will be holding a one off Bandcamp sale tomorrow in response to fees being waived by the site in response to the current Covid-19 pandemic.

Kaine members will get an additional discount.

See Bandcamp’s statement below:

“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.
