FURTHER CANCELLATIONS AS KAINE PART WAYS WITH RS PROMOTIONS

Kaine will no longer be working with RS Promotions run by Ric Stats. This follows a string of issues, going back to the band being refused admin access to event pages, denied the ability to promote events, told inaccurate attendance numbers, gig cancellations due to poor ticket sales, and no organisation in regard to gear share. The band by being disallowed from promotional activities was severely hamstrung in trying to ensure events were well attended and the end result would have had a negative impact on the gigs in any case.

Kaine recently has to turn down a number of dates offered by Ric Stats on the basis drummer Liam Etheridge is in Norway visiting his partners family. Ric Stats then bemoaned this fact on social media which would turn out to be the final straw for the band. The band will be seeking replacement dates in the coming weeks.

Kaine announced for Burr Fest 2020 at The Dome, Tufnell Park, London

Kaine have been announced for Burr Fest at The Dome, Tufnell Park (London) next year. Burr Fest is an annual charity event, held in memory of former Iron Maiden drummer, Clive Burr.

“So here it goes! The first act announced for Burr Fest 2020, opening the bill will be… KAINE!!! Formed by frontman/rhythm guitarist Rage Sadler, back in 2009, the band has gone through various line-up changes over the years. One thing has always remained though – Rage’s determination to produce genuine Heavy Metal with conviction. Having recently announced their latest effort “Reforge The Steel”, the band have so far released 3 fantastic studio albums. With such a solid catalogue behind them, I’m sure Kaine are destined for big things, and it’s thoroughly deserved! I’m very happy to have them on the bill this year, and know you’ll all love their set! So make sure you head down to the show early to catch these guys!”

Andy Holloway – Burr Fesr

Originally a member of Samson, Clive Burr played on the first three Iron Maiden albums, before playing in other legendary acts such as Trust, Elixir and Praying Mantis. Burr died in his sleep on 12 March 2013 in London, due to complications related to MS. The early idea behind Burr Fest, began when promoter Andy learnt of the death Clive Burr, knowing that this would likely see the end of the fundraising efforts. Clive was a fantastic drummer, and being a drummer himself, Andy was keen to see Clive’s legacy live on. Unfortunately, at that point, he had no idea where to start. It wasn’t until he teamed up with Erwin Lucas, an Iron Maiden fan from Holland, in 2015, that a plan started to form. The pair released the “Origins of Iron” compilation that June, with no less than 8 former members of Maiden attending the launch party. The response led to Doug Sampson rejoining Airforce after 20 years, to record new material which appeared on the group’s career-retrospective album, “Judgement Day”, which was released by Andy & Erwin’s WatchOut Records.

DAN MAILER TO REJOIN KAINE AS GUEST FOR 10TH ANNIVERSARY SHOW IN 2019

dmp

Dan Mailer, who helped found Kaine back in 2009 as the bands original bassist and co-vocalist will be rejoining the band on stage at it’s tenth anniversary show next April.

While in the band he released two studio albums, performed on a live album and featured on the band’s first two major tours, one of which being a Britain and Ireland tour alongside American Thrash Metal legends Mordred, and Wildfire Festival where Kaine played alongside Diamond Head, Lawnmower Death, Tygers of Pan Tang, Holocaust among many others. He also had the honour of replacing former Bruce Dickinson bass player Chris Dale, while stepping in to play bass with Monument on the 2014 Monument tour.

The Waystone, still the bands most critically and commercially successful album to date, was largely due to Dan’s contributions to the album and the overall songwriting process, which also saw the band briefly signed and professionally managed.

He has since played bass in bands such as Deep Machine, Daemona, Gabriel and Elimination as well as releasing his first solo EP, Introspectrum, and recently he has become the vocalist for long standing Heavy Metal revivalists and good friends of Kaine, Osmium Guillotine.
