Kaine guitarist/vocalist Rage Sadler has completed the tracking of the 22′ EP guitars for the Falling Through Freedom anniversary set and remaining vocals for the new album After Extinction. These were completed with Talon Payne and Gallow Wood Media yesterday.
The bands new album is close to completion, on the 21′ Patreon EP the lyrics are being finalised ready for recording the vocals, and with the 22′ EP all that is left to track is the drums and vocals. All three releases have been delayed due to the backlog caused by the Covid 19 Pandemic.
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.
I will be writing to everyone on our mailing lists, past and present, with information regarding our August tour and inviting everyone to the shows. The reason I am doing this is social media tends to hide our events and announcements from timelines and, much like with our Arts Centre show a few years back, we hope that more people will see the dates via mail than online and that will increase the overall turnout.
This is the biggest tour we have done since 2014 and the first with this line-up. We will be takings this opportunity to have a “soft” relaunch of our album Reforge The Steel which we were previously restricted from promoting due to COVID-19 lockdowns.

August 23rd, 2022 – Trillian’s, Newcastle (buy tickets)
We will be back in Unit One today for rehearsals. We have a busy few months lined up already with our recently announced gigs at The Rep in Ipswich, and Bassment Chelmsford on top of our August tour supporting Lillian Axe and Riot Act.
We will also have news on our brand new album in the coming weeks.
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.
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.
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.
MK8 (2018 – Present)
*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.
We will be back in rehearsals today to prepare for our forthcoming gig at Melbourn Rock Club on Saturday. The Club is based at Eternit Sports & Social Club, Whaddon Road, Meldreth, South Cambs, SG8 5RL. Kaine will be opening the night, with Doors at 7pm. Tickets can be bought here.
We took a break from rehearsals last weekend to work on finishing our new album. This week we return to Unit One in order to rehearse for our forthcoming show on June 25th (buy tickets here) at Melbourn Rock Club. We also have to prepare for big things coming…
We will be back at Unit One today for rehearsals, with Rage now firmly on the way to recovery from his recent illness. We will be working on a mixture of material, as we were last week, working on songs from the new EP and our set for the gig at Melbourn Rock Club next month. You can watch us working on adding songs to the set and material for the new EP on the link above.
