NEW SONG SECOND COMING REACHES OVER 3000 STREAMS ON YOUTUBE IN JUST FOUR DAYS – 5,260 ACROSS ALL PLATFORMS

The first single from After Extinction

Over the past four days we have had over 5000 streams for our new single across a number of social media platforms.

The single, which now has over 3000 streams on YouTube, has been the most streamed after it’s immediate release since Iron Lady from 2014’s The Waystone which ended up in the 10k region before tailing off.

While the streaming across social media platforms has been strong, pre-orders for the album have remained low, and stand at just 40 total. We will continue to work hard to push the new album and get those numbers up over the next few days before the album releases on Monday.

  • YouTube: 3019

SECOND COMING REACHES 2,234 STREAMS ACROSS MULTIPLE PLATFORMS (BREAKDOWN INCLUDED + PRE-ORDER NUMBERS)

Click play to listen to the New Single

Our new single has so far been streamed over 2,234 times across a number of platforms, however not all of these streams represent complete plays with a large % of listeners ducking out after the 10-15 second mark. Despite the high number of plays, pre-orders for the new album remain relatively low at 31 so far.

The totals of streams across the platforms for Second Coming are as follows:

  • 289 – Bandcamp
  • 286 – Facebook
  • 78 – Instagram
  • 1581 – YouTube

You can pre-order the new album digitally for just £1 and CD for £13. The CD comes in a super jewel case and with a full colour lyric booklet. You can pre-order here.

AFTER EXTINCTION: FIRST SINGLE RELEASES TONIGHT – PRE ORDERS TO OPEN!

The album is now fully mixed and mastered so we’ll be releasing the first single tonight, Second Coming (The Cycle) along with the official pre-order. There will be details of the CD package too. To be notified when this is released, click FOLLOW>>> here.

KAINE – NEW ALBUM AFTER EXTINCTION IS NEAR COMPLETION

We are pleased to report that we are at the very final stages of mixing the new album and this should be completed by the weekend, with mastering to follow on shortly after. The immediate plan will be to put out several singles along with a pre-order at a much-reduced price to help recoup the losses from the album.

Due to the Covid-19 restrictions over the last 2 years the record was recorded in several different studios and has had more engineers working on it than previous records, both in terms of recording, editing, mixing, and mastering including the band themselves. It has been a long and costly process putting together the record we started writing in 2019. We have been rehearsing (and even playing some of the songs live over the past 3 years) and began recording the bulk of it last year. We recognise this has been a long process and can only apologise it’s taken this long to put the new record out. As announced recently, we have a track listing, and this will prove to be one of our most varied releases yet.

We are now focussing on finishing the two Patreon EP’s. The 2021 EP’s lyrics and vocals are being worked on, album art and EP name to be released not long after the new album, and Liam is currently writing the drum parts for the Falling Through Freedom EP, of which only the drums and vocals need to be recorded for. The new art and t-shirt for that released will also follow the new album.

The Track Listing

Rehearsals this week are postponed due to our gig supporting Planet Fatale and Desolation Angels at the Cart & Horses which is now close to selling out.

KAINE RETURN TO UNIT ONE FOR REHEARSALS TODAY

We’re back in rehearsals today at Unit One, Colchester to prepare for our near sold out gig supporting Desolation Angels at the Cart & Horses later this month.

We’ll be looking to add new songs from the new album into the set and start to relearn songs from our forthcoming EPs so they can be performed live soon also.

AFTER EXTINCTION TRACK LISTING RELEASED

After Extinction will contain 9 new tracks and features the same line-up that wrote and recorded 2019’s Reforge The Steel, the first time that Kaine has had back-to-back records with the same line-up since the original band formed in 2009.

The official track listing for Kaine’s new album is as follows:

  1. The Second Coming (The Cycle)
  2. A Slave To The Grind
  3. The Storm Is Coming
  4. Protesting For Profit
  5. Left Behind
  6. New Age Martyr
  7. After Extinction
  8. Green To Grey
  9. Bright

An official pre-order date will be set soon. The album will be available on CD/Digital download. The album will be printed on industry standard, high-quality CDs and will be housed in a Super Jewell Case. This will also include a full lyric booklet.

NEW ALBUM UPDATE – UPDATE ON TWO NEW EP’S AND UK TOUR

After Extinction

The album has made some progress in recent weeks with the addition of keys and some last-minute changes to some of the vocals. The reason this album has been more complicated than previous releases is it has been recorded between two studios (Unit One and Gallow Wood Media) and both studios have had a hand in the editing process whereas I and the band have overseen the mixing process in a more involved way than previous releases. It’s not where our expertise is, but due to the UK Lockdowns over the COVID-19 pandemic, we had to work in this way. This has also meant the costs associated with the album are much greater than our previous releases. Broadly speaking the project is almost finished and we are sorry about the delay.

Kaine 21’ EP

All the instruments have been recorded, I am in the final stages of finishing the lyrics before I book in vocal recording sessions. This EP contains 5 brand new songs and has been delayed largely because of the backlog to do with the new album. So far all of the recordings have taken place at Unit One Studios and no editing or mixing has taken place.

Kaine 22’ EP – Falling Through Freedom Anniversary Box Set

We have finished recording all the bass and guitars for the new EP at Gallow Wood Media, with Liam currently working on what he would like to do with the drums. This EP will be included in the anniversary set of the album, which will include the “demo” album, recorded by the 2011 line-up, the original 2012 album, the 2016 remaster, and the new EP.

Lillian Axe and Riot Act Tour

I have also been very busy working on the tour. I am pleased to say the transport and hotels are now all booked up. In terms of crew, Alex Odinson and Charles Franklin will be handing roadie duties which include everything from loading in, to providing tech support, looking after merchandise, and recording video footage of the gigs.

All t-shirt pre-orders have now been sent out with signed posters. In recent weeks I have written to a number of our Bandcamp buyers via the post with invitations to the tour, I have been using our emailing lists to send our targeted emails and videos to promote the events and obviously running an extensive social media campaign. I have also been supporting Lillian Axe with their social media campaign.

We will be using this tour to promote our most recent album Reforge The Steel, which was released just before the Covid-19 pandemic and this restricted the number of gigs we could do to promote it.

Opportunities like this do not come around often, and whether or not we get this kind of opportunity again depends on the success of this tour, which is why I am working flat out to try and make every show a sell-out. You can get tickets from here.

KAINE BEGIN TRACKING FALLING THROUGH FREEDOM EP FOR LATE 22′ RELEASE

Kaine have began tracking the Falling Through Freedom EP for the 2022 Patreon Package. The EP will feature 5 songs, two of which did not make the original album as part of it’s tenth anniversary release. The guitars and bass were tracked with Talon Payne of Gallow Wood Media on Sunday. The anniversary release of the album will be part of a 4 disc set, and will include a t-shirt and brand new EP. You can grab your copy here.
