We again return to Unit One for our weekly rehearsals and writing sessions. Over the last few weeks we have been working on our 21’ EP tracks in order to begin to begin recording the EP. We have also revisited some of the new album songs to prepare for the return to gigging in March.
Last weekend we finished tracking all the vocals and vocal overdubs for the new Kaine album at Gallow Wood Media with Talon Payne. The remaining parts to be recorded are the keys from Heidi Crowell. The album is currently being edited and mixed behind the scenes and will be ready for release soon. Liam and Rage be discussing the songs on the album on the forthcoming Podcast episode.
We have announced our first run of shows for 2022! We’ll be returning to a number of regular haunts as well as a new venue. One Eyed Toad Records have graciously booked the majority of these dates for us where we will be playing alongside our friends in Neverworld and Planet Fatale.
- March 4th, 2022 – Club 85, Hitchin
Tickets are already on sale for this show here. This is our first show back at Club 85 since September 2017 and the first ever with the current line-up. The last time we played at the venue was the only time the band ever played the single “Holding the Line” live and was the very same day they recorded it at Threecircles Recording Studio. The single is now included on the latest prints of the A Crisis of Faith albums.
- March 9th, 2022 – CODA, Colchester
We played a show at CODA for the first-time last year, which was the band’s first gig without Covid restrictions since the Pandemic began in early 2020. Lead guitarist Toby Woods is unavailable for this date so will be replaced by a guest guitarist which will be announced soon.
- March 18th, 2022 – Portland Arms, Cambridge
Another venue we haven’t played in several years, the last time being back in October 2016. Much like with Club 85, this is our first gig with the current line-up, and we’ll be joined by Raze who will replace Neverworld at this event. Raze are another great band, so well worth checking out this unique line-up on the night.
- March 19th, 2022 – The Carlisle, Hastings
The last time we played here was for Mearfest back in December 2017 with the A Crisis of Faith line-up. A fun fact about this venue, is due to the local Councils zealous enforcement of parking restrictions we have had parking fines every time we have loaded into the venue in the past.
- March 26th, 2022 – The Rock Den, Hatfield
We had been the resident band at The Rock Den back in 2016 having played there regularly in the years previous, however this will be our first performance at the venue since 2018 and only our second with the current line-up! We are very much looking forward to returning this year and entertaining the massive once more.
- April 22nd, 2022 – Tap N Tumbler, Nottingham
This is a brand-new venue for us! We haven’t played here before but we did play Martin Shorts Badass Bash in Nottingham at the Maze all the way back in January 2014 with The Waystone line-up of the band.
Kaine will continue tracking vocals for their new album at Gallow Wood Media today. This will be mostly revisions as the band looks to progress the album to be able to release before the end of the year.
After that sessions is concluded the band will return to Unit One in Colchester to begin rehearsals again after a two week break. The band cancelled their remaining 2021 dates when they dropped all dates booked with Ric Stats and RS Promotions. Kaine will be using this time to finish the new album and EP.
Kaine, who have recently finished working on the studio scratch tracks, will begin rehearsals for the new EP at Unit One today. Once the band is ready it will then book in the recording sessions for the new EP. The EP will contain 5 new and exclusive songs not on the bands new album. You can order the new EP here.
Rage Sadler will continue tracking vocals for the new album with Talon Payne at Gallow Wood Media in Essex today. Rage is fresh off a gig in Alton last night and will be working to complete as much of the tracking as possible. Kaine will also be back at Unit One tomorrow to begin the rehearsals for the new EP ahead of the recording sessions.
Kaine will begin putting together to studio scratch tracks together for their brand new EP this weekend. The EP will contain 5 brand new songs, not on the new album and will be available on CD to Patreon £3 subscribers only. You can get yours by clicking here. Patreon’s also get an exclusive t-shirt and patch with the release.
Kaine will continue their weekly rehearsals at Unit One Studios today in Colchester. Again the focus will be on the winging/playing element of the new album as well as the bands forthcoming gigs. This weeks sessions will be filmed for YouTube for the first time in several weeks, the filming had stopped due to Alex Odinson (who films the sessions) coming down with Covid-19.
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.
