Kaine will be focussing on the singing/playing element of the new album alongside work on lyrics and vocal melodies at Unit One today, and over the next few weeks. The bulk of the instrumentation has now been recorded for the new album so the focus will be now switched to vocals. The band is also preparing for the mixing stage as well, with more news on that coming in the following weeks.
Last weekend Kaine finished recording the majority of the instrumentation for the new album with Wayne Thompson at Unit One studios last weekend. Toby Woods completed all his lead and rhythm recordings between the 17th and 18th of July as well as recording of additional harmony guitars.
Rage Sadler is to begin recording the vocals for the new album soon, with the new album being due to release next year.
The band also returned to non-socially distanced on Wednesday (July 21st) at a packed out show alongside friends Mercury Rising and Osmium Guillotine at Coda, Colchester. The gig was organised by Imperious Spirit promotions and was a major success for the underground Metal scene in Essex. Kaine played a mixture of songs from the new album and Reforge The Steel.
Kaine’s lead guitarist Toby Woods has finished his first full day tracking guitars at Unit One Studios, Colchester with 7 songs completed on the first day with 2 more to be completed tomorrow. The solos are yet to be recorded as well as additional guitar harmonies and layering which will take place during the Sunday session.
Kaine will be returning to Unit One in Colchester today for rehearsals again to prepare for the return to gigging on July 9th and the lead guitar recording sessions next month.

We’ve also released a single alongside the new design which can be heard here:
Rage Sadler recorded the 9 songs over the past two days, whereas Isaac Healy was able to track his bass for the 9 songs in a day to complete that element of the album recording. Recording took place at Unit One Studio’s Colchester with Wayne Thomson, who also recorded Liam Etheredge’s drums over a three day period last month.
The first day of recording guitars is complete as Rage Sadler has finished tracking the first 6 songs for the new album, with just 3 remaining for tomorrows session. Isaac Healy will also begin tracking the bass tomorrow.
Rage Sadler and Isaac Healy will at Unit One studios in Colchester tomorrow with Wayne Thompson tracking the bulk of the rhythm guitars and bass for the new Kaine album. The tracking will take place tomorrow and Wednesday as the new album heads towards completion. Liam Etheridge completed the drum tracking between the 21st and 23rd of May.
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.
“What a weekend that was. I have been running on fumes all day and had less than a standard night’s sleep in the space of 2 days (probably about 5 hours sleep total), but this weekend was the best one I’ve had since the beginning of 2020, before the world came crashing down! Recording was very smooth, and I managed to get all my stuff done with plenty of time to spare. I feel like I pushed myself way harder than I ever have in any performance, and the new songs that we have are gonna be a bitch to replicate live 😂 but it’s worth it, it’s easily the best album Kaine has ever done and I’m really proud of all the stuff we’ve written.
The gig was definitely needed, my god it felt good to be back on stage again. It was the first time I’ve seen a lot of our crowd of hooligans in well over a year, and it was like we never left! I never thought I could miss the arseache of loading in and packing up, or sweating like a motherfucker on stage! Even the first gig beer tasted better than ever. It was bizarre having everyone sat down, but hopefully that will go away as planned by the time our next one comes around, then it’ll be a true comeback!”
Liam Etheridge finished tracking the drums to the new Kaine album this weekend. The bands 5th album contains 9 brand new songs, a number of which saw their live debut at The Music Room, Ipswich on Saturday. Engineer Wayne Thompson will now be editing the drums in the coming weeks as the band looks forward to the tracking of the guitar and bass as soon as possible.
