KAINE TO BEGIN TRACKING NEW 5 TRACK EP NEXT WEEKEND – LIAM ETHERIDGE TO TRACK AT UNIT ONE 

We are now finally able to track the delayed 21’ Patreon EP. Liam will be heading down to Unit One Studio’s once more (29th – 30th of January) to begin tracking all 5 of the new EP tracks. The EP CD will be exclusive to our £2.50 or more Patreon’s, which can be ordered here.  The EP has a much darker tone than our previous releases.  

KAINE REHEARSALS AT UNIT ONE TODAY 

Our 2022 rehearsal sessions so far

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.  

KAINE FINISH ALBUM 5 TRACKING AT GALLOW WOOD MEDIA

Last weeks rehearsals at Unit One

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.

KAINE RETURN TO GALLOW WOOD MEDIA TOMORROW TO FINISH BRAND NEW ALBUM + UNIT ONE REHEARSALS

Last weeks sessions at Unit One

We will be returning to Gallow Wood Media, which is just outside of Great Dunmow, tomorrow to track what we hope will be the final backing vocals for the new Kaine album, as well as a few minor vocal overdubs. This will leave the album complete from a recording perspective. 

After these sessions we will then head over to Unit One in Colchester where we will continue to rehearse for our new EP recordings as well as our return to gigging in March.  

KAINE RETURN TO ACTION THIS WEEKEND AT UNIT ONE

Kaine will be returning to rehearsals this weekend at Unit One. The focus will be the Patreon EP (21′) and a soon to be announced show in February. The band took a break over the festive period to recharge ahead of the new album release and the new year. A number of shows have been planned for 2022, Covid restrictions allowing, which will also be announced soon.

KAINE FINISH WORKING FOR 2021 – NEW ALBUM AND EP WILL RELEASE IN 2022 DEPENDING ON COVID-19 RESTRICTIONS IN THE UK

Kaine finished up for 2021 with EP sessions at Unit One yesterday, as well as beginning to write a brand new song for a future album. The band will resume the remaining recording and production for the new album in 2022, as well as begin to record the new EP. The album and EP have both been delayed due to Covid-19 Restrictions throughout 2020 and 2021.

The band has been alerted to further restrictions being implemented by the UK Government soon which may restrict the band’s work in early 2022. The band is also reviewing the situation regarding their 2022 bookings whether or not to go ahead due to the risk of cancellations due to the recent dual Covid-19 epidemic of the Delta and Omicron variants currently impacting the UK.

KAINE RETURN TO UNIT ONE FOR MORE EP SESSIONS TODAY

The band is currently working on 5 new songs for a special Patreon EP. The working titles for each song are All Hail The Evil One, Evil Too, Dragonlord, Birmingham Blues and On Repeat. The band is currently preparing to record the new songs in the studio.

The CD will only be available to Patreon’s paying £3 or more each month, you can join here. Along with the CD you will also receive a new shirt and patch each year your remain a member. Patreon used to help the band with the monthly running costs, such as rehearsals, recording, patrol and events promotion in the absence of a traditional record deal and a decline in physical media sales due to changes in the music industry and customer tastes leaning more towards streaming.

Patreon’s have access to the footage of the band working on the new EP which can be found here.

WE ARE CLOSE TO RELEASING THE NEW ALBUM – RAGE SADLER

Kaine live last week at the B2, Norwich

I thought it would be a good time to give an update on where we are at with the new Kaine album. To provide a little context to where we are with the new record, we actually started writing some of the material way back in 2019, while we were working on Reforge The Steel. The intention was at that time to have the album written and recorded with a 2020 release. Unfortunately, due to COVID-19 outbreak, any further writing and recording sessions were difficult as we went in and out of lockdown and restrictions and rules were constantly changing. We did our best with it and managed to finish most of the writing for the album earlier this year.  

The band at recent rehearsals

In May this year we started tracking the album at last, and we are close to completing tracking now. This is a very different album to Reforge The Steel, it has a lot more Thrash and Speed Metal influences on this record and a larger contribution from the other members of the band who have written many of the songs and lyrics for this record. Reforge The Steel was written almost immediately after A Crisis of Faith and is the closest thing to a solo album I have done, purely due to the fact the guys were new to the band, and we had to turn around a new album to relaunch the band as quickly as possible.  

Another thing we have bene juggling is a new EP for our Patreon subscribers. This will be a CD exclusive to those backing us on the platform for £3 or more. This is also delayed for the same reasons as the album, however we are making good progress and have rehearsed and worked on 4 of the 5 songs solidly over the past few weeks while also recording the new album and playing shows at The Smokehouse in Ipswich and the B2 in Norwich. The 5 EP songs are again very different from what’s on the album and represent a heavier direction for the band.  

Kaine at the Smokehouse, Ipswich

We have some backing vocals still to record for the new album, potentially a few vocal over dubs, we have keys being performed by a soon to be announced guest, and we still need to finalize artwork for the record but the bulk is recorded.  The album still needs to be mixed, but there has been a change in the production team for this record with Wayne Thompson (Unit One Studio’s) tracking and making edits to the album, Talon Payne (Gallow Wood Media) tracking the vocal element and done further edits to the existing instrumental takes to the record, with the overall production now being handled by myself. This has resulted in a different tone and sound from the past two releases. The change has come about by the previous producer now being out of the music business. It also made sense for the band to stay in Essex while COVID-19 was still a major issue, allowing us to minimalize the risk and travel during the period. 

The summarise, the album will be out in the new year along with the new EP shortly after. There will be no pre-order for this record.  

As ever, thank you for your continued support.

Love,

Rage
