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.
Liam Etheridge will begin tracking drums for the new album on the evening of Friday the 21st of May 2021. The tracking will take place at Unit One Studios where the band presently rehearses and the engineer in charge of the session will be Wayne Thompson. Tracking will also take place the day of May 22nd (before the Ipswich gig) and May 23rd.
The band has decided to track the drums as locally as possible to avoid the potential spread of Covid 19 and to be as safe as can be. Rage Sadler will be overseeing the production of the record as a result, which is a departure from the bands wo previous records which were recorded by Pointy Halo at Redwall Studio’s in Bury, Greater Manchester, Pointy Halo having since ceased operations in 2020.
The “Reforged” version of Kaine reached it’s third anniversary, having formed on this day in 2018. The line up of Rage Sadler (rhythm guitars and vocals), Liam Etheridge (drums), Toby Woods (lead guitars) and Isaac Healy (bass) has released a studio album (Reforge The Steel), two EP’s (The Waystone and Kaine) and two live albums (Kaine X and Reforge The Steel Live) since their formation and is preparing to record a brand new album and EP this year.
You can read a recap of the last three years here.
UK underground Heavy Metal act Kaine are set to sign a management deal with Bonewood Music and will be henceforth managed by Scott Canty. Scott has a range of experience in the music business and will be developing a plan for the new album launch later this year.
Scott said: “Kaine have been on my radar for a while now – they have always been an extremely active band, and have an army of fans to show for it.
“Having spoken with Rage, it seemed not only the natural but also the perfect time to welcome them aboard Bonewood Music. We shall be helping them shape their next campaign, and grow their fanbase – not to mention it’s about time these guys had some top music videos, I’m sure the fans will be excited to hear that!”
“Watch this space, we have some big plans.”
Since 2014 Kaine had been managed solely by frontman Rage Sadler who added: “I have managed the band to the best of my abilities over the past 7 years, and prior to that before we had management. Although I have worked to keep the band going, I simply do not have the contacts, skills, or knowledge to take the band any further at this stage which is why working with Scott on the new era for the band was a perfect fit for us going forward. Naturally, our long-term goal is to progress our career further as a band and reach a wider audience starting with the brand new album.”
“This was the perfect time to make a change.”
The band will be issuing further updates in the coming weeks and will soon begin record the new album.
