KAINE ANNOUNCES NEW 2021 PATREON SHIRT DESIGN + NEW £3 PATREON TIER

Following feedback from the Facebook community, the design theme for Kaine’s 2021 Patreon shirt is Master of Mankind, named after the track from Reforge The Steel. The band also consulted on pricing and many people felt the existing £1 a month tier was too cheap, so for 2021 a new £3 a month tier will be introduced which will offer subscribers an exclusive EP on CD each year they remain a subscriber. The existing £1 a month tier will remain for those who do not want to pay the extra £2 a month.

The new shirt/patch design features the brand new Kaine album from the forthcoming new album from the band which was announced last week. You can both upgrade your existing subscription or join our Patreon to get your shirt, patch, and CD here.

The new £3 tier

Due to COVID-19, there had been a slight delay to the 2020 patches being printed and sent out, they are currently being made and will be sent out ASAP to all 2020 subscribers and we can only apologise for the delay.

KAINE – NEW ALBUM SUSPENDED DUE TO COVID-19 RISK

The bands last rehearsal session

The band will suspend their new album rehearsal and writing sessions due to the ongoing Covid-19 outbreak in the UK. This is due to people being at severe risk of infection in the immediate circle of the band, and with the new variant of the virus, younger people are now becoming more regularly infected. 1 in 20 people across all age groups in some areas of Essex are now infected with the virus and it was decided today by the band that suspending the album sessions was the safest decision moving forward.

Sessions will resume as soon as vaccinations become available and assuming rehearsals and recording sessions remain legal. This means that the new album, which the band began work on in late 2019, will be further delayed until further notice along with the new EP.

MUSICIANS UNION CONFIRMS STUDIOS CAN REMAIN OPEN FOR REHEARSAL AND RECORDING DURING FULL UK LOCKDOWN

Tonight the UK Musicians Union has confirmed that studios that are Covid-19 safe can continue to offer both rehearsals and recording sessions under the new national lockdown. This means we will continue to write and rehearse our new album at Pioneer Music for the duration of the lockdown while remaining as safe as possible throughout the process.

KAINE RETURN TO THE STUDIO THIS WEEKEND AS REHEARSAL REMAINS LEGAL UNDER TIER 4

Our last session of 2020

Kaine will return to Pioneer Music on Sunday to resume work on their new album after a short Christmas break. The band has been rehearsing 9 new songs with more to come in the coming weeks. Over the Christmas break a new song was written as well as lyrics and vocal melodies for the new tracks which will be worked on in the studio over the next few weeks.

Recording studios and rehearsal spaces are legally allowed to remain open under tier 4 and the band will continue to work on the new album while this is the case.

KAINE TAKING A BREAK OVER THE CHRISTMAS PERIOD

Last weeks sessions

The band will not be rehearsing this weekend due to the Christmas break but will return to work on the new album shortly after. The new album writing sessions had to be postponed earlier this year due to the COVID-19 pandemic. After the rehearsal on March 13th the band was unable to work on the new album until the 9th of August when rehearsal became legal again in the UK. This has held up the writing/release of the new album which was due to be released later this year.

WORK CONTINUES ON THE NEW ALBUM ON SUNDAY

At work on the new EP and album last weekend

Kaine will return to the Pioneer Music Studio on Sunday to continue work on their new album. The band now has 9 songs ready and will look to start recording it sometime in 2021. Due to COVID-19 the band was unable to rehearse for much of 2020 which has delayed the writing process for the new album.

KAINE BEGIN WORK ON NEW EP WITH GALLOW WOOD MEDIA ON SATURDAY

REFORGE THE STEEL TO BE RE-RELEASED ON CD – EVERYTHING YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT THE NEW VERSION OF THE ALBUM PACKAGE + NEW STREAMING VERSION

New Versions of all the tracks

Following the positive feedback on the inclusion of more extensive backing vocals on our Waystone EP, we’ve updated the album tracks to feature full backing including backing vocal harmonies. The album has received a light remix and remaster to accommodate the new vocals.

The Dragon Reborn (Rebirth) Extended Version

The new version of the album includes an extended version of the song the Dragon Reborn which includes new lead and backing vocals and a remix.

Black

This version of the album features the “single” version from the past release which includes the additional solo from former band member Anthony Murch as well as a remix.

Bonus Tracks

We’ve included The Waystone EP as bonus tracks as they are recorded by the same line-up and production team they fit nicely with the updated version of Reforge The Steel.

Production

These were manufactured by the same company who produced our very well received vinyl sleeves/LP’s for A Crisis of Faith.

Super Jewel Case

The album is now housed in a Super Jewell Case. These are more resilient than the regular Jewel cases and are typically more resilient to scratches and damage than the traditional CD case.

Industry Standard Replication

Unlike our past CD’s which were duplicated, for this version of the album the CD we’ve used the replication method which is much higher quality. These are replicated to the highest industry standards.

CD Label

Following feedback from our fans, we have ensured that the CD labels on these are of extremely high quality and not “sticky” as many have complained in the past with previous releases.

Full Colour Lyric Booklet

We’ve included for the first time since our debut album’s initial print a full lyric book, which features the photography of Rachel Woods and is displayed in full colour. Every existing Patreon and Bandcamp as of the print of that booklet is also included in the credit sections.

Collectors Series

This will be the first release as part of our collectors series offering our releases in the highest quality physical format. We’ll be revisiting our back catalogue to update our previous releases in this fashion as we move forward. We want to offer the best possible experience for those who are buying albums and we feel this new format will deliver a much better product for our fans.

Definitive Edition

On top of a new physical release, we will be re-releasing the album onto streaming platforms as the “Definitive Edition” which can be found here. This version will include all of the updated tracks, The Waystone EP and the original album.
