REFORGE THE STEEL – RELAUNCH AHEAD OF AUGUST TOUR

Reforge The Steel was released in October 2019 and not long after the release the UK went into a Covid-19 lockdown, and thus live shows were cancelled and suspended for the majority of 2020/21. This meant there was a lack of opportunity for ourselves to play live to promote the album and sell physical copies at our gigs. We are therefore using our August tour as an opportunity to run a soft relaunch of the album, we will be promoting the release through our social channels again and will be performing tracks exclusively from that album during the tour. You can order the CD here.

REFORGE THE STEEL TOUR TRAILER

The original version on CD sold out, the current version is our collectors edition version which includes a high-quality CD, a full colour booklet with all the lyrics all housed in a super jewel case and has 5 bonus tracks as well as a remastered and updated version of the album.

We also produce a limited edition shirt featuring the album art which is also available here.

KAINE “REFORGE THE STEEL” LINE-UP IS LONGEST RUNNING IN BANDS HISTORY

Although in the past there had been several members who had long tenures in the band, original bassist Dan Mailer (2009-15), and Waystone/A Crisis of Faith drummer Chris MacKinnon (2012-18) the current line-up of Kaine, which came together in May 2018 has now been the longest running in the band’s history, and the only line-up to appear on back-to-back releases. Reforge The Steel and the new album After Extinction are the only Kaine albums where the same line-up has featured consecutively.

Sadler/Mailer/Moreton/Jackson

MK2 (2011)

Sadler/Mailer/Moreton/Fairhead

MK3 (2012)

*This isn’t counting transitional line-ups, or where former members have returned to cover for the band on occasion.

The band in its current incarnation is the longest running version of Kaine since the original band was formed back in 2009.
