Kaine will be teaming up with the legendary Cart & Horses in Stratford, a venue where Iron Maiden first got their start in London. The band will be running a number of headline shows at the venue, featuring guest bands who also play Revival Metal and Now Wave of British Heavy Metal inspired by bands such as Iron Maiden.
“At the Cart and Horses, we’re passionate about live music as we were very privileged to have the legendary rock Band Iron Maiden play here. We carefully pick our bands and musicians for their talent, this is why we have chosen Kaine a leading force in British Metal Revival, primarily influenced by the first wave British Metal bands to Rock our stage.”
Also working in partnership with Kaine in promoting the events will be the NWOBHM festival Mearfest, which works primarily to raise money for stillbirth charities. Mearfest will help promote the events at the Cart & Horses as well as raise awareness for their charities.
Brian Mear commented: “Mearfest was changed into an all Metal Fest last year in memory of our full term Stillborn daughter Molly. We have incorporated NWOBHM bands and younger Now Wave of British Heavy Metal bands to great effect. Having had sold out shows in London and Newcastle and raised awareness and £10,000 for Various charities in the last 12 months. We have worked with Kaine from the very start finding their music powerful and a new force in British Metal. We look forward to working alongside the band in the future, to increase exposure for what we are both doing and to build on our already strong friendship.”
Kaine will be selecting the guest bands who will play alongside them, with the first show on Saturday, May 13th with more details to follow. The Cart & Horses can be found at 1 Maryland Point, London, United Kingdom.
Rage Sadler added that: “We were approached by the Cart & Horses following our show with V1 (which features ex Iron Maiden members Dennis Wilcock and Terry Wapram) on Saturday, we have since looked at putting on some shows together and pushing new bands at the venue that play in the style first created by the likes of Iron Maiden back in the 70’s. I am extremely proud to be working with this venue on these shows and hopefully we can turn them into a huge success and reignite the flame that was NWOBHM but for a new generation of fans.”
More details will follow on the shows, in the meantime please check out www.cartandhorses.london and www.mearfest.com to learn more about the venue and Mearfest.
