Toby Woods announced as new Kaine guitarist


Having only had only since Thursday morning to prepare, Toby Woods (centre) was invited an informal audition this afternoon at Pioneer Music Studio alongside the band. Toby played through Heaven’s Abandonment, Fall of Jericho, Crisis of Faith and Voice in Hell with confidence and added brilliant improvised solos, which were so impressive that he was invited to join the band during the session, and accepted the position today.

Toby joins fellow newcomer Liam Etheridge (drums) and the bands founder Rage in Kaine as the band now seeks a new bass guitarist. Stevo will remain with the band until a replacement is found, hopefully in the coming weeks.

Kaine to begin auditioning new guitar players today plus other announcements regarding upcoming dates


Kaine will be starting to audition new guitar players from tonight with a decision on the new lead guitarist to be made hopefully within the coming weeks. The auditions will again be taking place at Pioneer Music in Colchester. The band is still awaiting applications for the position of bass guitar to begin that process.

We have two announcements on further dates that our appearances in Slough for Mearfest and at Grand Central Manchester have been cancelled due to re-arrangements by the event organisers. We wish both events every success.
