I will be writing to everyone on our mailing lists, past and present, with information regarding our August tour and inviting everyone to the shows. The reason I am doing this is social media tends to hide our events and announcements from timelines and, much like with our Arts Centre show a few years back, we hope that more people will see the dates via mail than online and that will increase the overall turnout.
This is the biggest tour we have done since 2014 and the first with this line-up. We will be takings this opportunity to have a “soft” relaunch of our album Reforge The Steel which we were previously restricted from promoting due to COVID-19 lockdowns.
August 22nd, 2022 – Robin 2, Wolverhampton (buy tickets)
August 23rd, 2022 – Trillian’s, Newcastle (buy tickets)
We will be returning to Unit One today to resume our regular rehearsals after a break recording the start of our new EP. Today’s focus will be the set for the forthcoming gigs in March which are:
March 4th, 2022 – Club 85, Hitchin
March 9th, 2022 – CODA, Colchester
March 18th, 2022 – Portland Arms, Cambridge
March 19th, 2022 – The Carlisle, Hastings
March 26th, 2022 – The Rock Den, Hatfield
April 22nd, 2022 – Tap N Tumbler, Nottingham
Tickets are still available for all these dates here.
We will be deciding the sets for these shows and prepare for gigging again after not playing live since the end of 2021. This was due to uncertainties regarding Covid restrictions going forward. England however has returned to limited restrictions which means gigs can go ahead once more without any COVID measures in place beyond the Governments basic guidelines.
Kaine finished up for 2021 with EP sessions at Unit One yesterday, as well as beginning to write a brand new song for a future album. The band will resume the remaining recording and production for the new album in 2022, as well as begin to record the new EP. The album and EP have both been delayed due to Covid-19 Restrictions throughout 2020 and 2021.
The band has been alerted to further restrictions being implemented by the UK Government soon which may restrict the band’s work in early 2022. The band is also reviewing the situation regarding their 2022 bookings whether or not to go ahead due to the risk of cancellations due to the recent dual Covid-19 epidemic of the Delta and Omicron variants currently impacting the UK.
Rage Sadler and Isaac Healy will begin tracking the rhythm guitars and bass for the new album at Unit One, Colchester on the 15th and 16th of June. The band will also be at Unit One today for weekly rehearsals.
Kaine’s upcoming gigs are likely to be postponed as the Government appears to be looking to extend the lockdown ending date to around July 19th. This will mean the bands shows at Coalville on July 9th and Colchester on July 14th will likely not go ahead. Kaine’s June date in Swansea was also cancelled by the Welsh Government due to Covid-19 infection rates beginning to rise again.
Kaine will again be back at Unit One next month to begin tracking the guitars and bass for the new album. The drums are still being worked on however good progress has been made with the new record.
We can also confirm that the bands Swansea show at Hanger 18 will be re-arranged. Presently the Welsh Governments restrictions are not enabling live music to come back unrestricted and the venue couldn’t have afforded to do the show with the limits on numbers at the venue in place. Hanger 18 were however happy with all the hard work done to promote the show and are keen to reschedule as soon as possible.
Kaine will be back at rehearsals today in Unit One.
Saturdays gig at The Music Room, Ipswich is a seated gig with table service only. This is to make the show as safe as possible and to limit the risk of the spread of Covid-19. Normally the band will have merchandise available at shows, however to ensure everyone’s safety the band will not be opening a merch table on the night and we will be distanced from the audience throughout.
If you wish to purchase any Kaine merch please head over to our Bandcamp here.
We return to Unit One to continue our rehearsal sessions for our new album today. The drum recording sessions are now booked for the new album later this month with more details to be announced on the recording soon. The band is also working on their set for the 22nd at The Music Room, Ipswich which is now sold out.
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.
The band now has six dates for 2021 which are as follows:
Kaine are back in the studio today to work on their brand new album. Over the last few weeks the band has been working on getting tighter and more familiar with the new songs following the break due to COVID-19. Lyrics and vocals have also been worked on in recent weeks as the band prepares to begin recording the album as soon as possible.
