KAINE RETURN TO UNIT ONE TODAY FOR REHEARSALS + EXTINCTION AFTER EP TRACKING FINISHED AND MORE

On Friday the vocals and backing vocals were tracked for the Extinction After EP which means the recording is now complete and the release can now be edited, mixed and mastered. You can hear a preview here.

Later the same day we played the Brewhouse, Colchester for the first time alongside Heathen Kings and Osmium Guillotine. It was absolutely jam packed and it was great to see so many people supporting live Heavy Metal in Colchester. We will be back in Colchester on the 14th at Coda! You can attend by clicking here.

Today we’ll be rehearsing as a three piece at Unit One as Toby has come down with a very nasty flu.

WE RETURN TO REHEARSALS TODAY + GENERAL UPDATE ON THE IMMEDIATE PLANS FOR KAINE

As stated in previous posts, we’ve not rehearsed in several weeks due to Liam suffering with a significant injury. To his credit he has still played the last two gigs in that state, one being a 2-hour set in Sheffield and the other a gig down in Kent a few weeks back, but we agreed it would be best to try and limit what he did while he was in pain. He also recorded his drums for the Falling Through Freedom EP in that period.

We’ve still been very busy, we’ve signed and sent out the album pre-orders on CD, we have finished recording the Falling Through Freedom EP, we’ve been working on getting the artwork finished for both EPs with the Extinction After EP completed and Falling Through Freedom on its way. The new art for the EP will on the t-shirt/patch for the 2022 Patreon package. Again, we are sorry for the delay on both.

By next Friday, I will have finished tracking vocals for Extinction After, having completed the Falling Through Freedom vocals last week. As stated previously, recording and finishing an album and two EPs in one year has been the most work I have ever done with this band, especially given we had a tour thrown in a few months back!

Our last rehearsal session on October 30th

Today we’re back to rehearsals, focussing on our gig at the Brewhouse, Colchester next week and getting our set together for that, plus ensuring we’re up to standard in terms of playing together. We’ve never played the Brewhouse before either, so I am looking forward to it. We are playing alongside Heathen Kings and Osmium Guillotine so the night will have a very traditional Metal feel. The gigs on Friday next week, and it’s free to get into from 7pm.

I am hopeful we can try and get back to a normal gigging routine next year, however with costs rising in the UK and with yet more tax increases announced this week, it’s going to be interesting to see how bands and venues survive in 2023. It could be the toughest year yet.

REHEARSALS TO RESUME THIS WEEKEND

We are pleased to report that Liam now feels able to return to rehearsals and we will be back in Unit One on Sunday to resume regular rehearsal sessions. He has been suffering from a trapped sciatic nerve and subsequent muscle-related issues in his back. He had recorded, and played the last two gigs in serious pain, and had requested some time off to recover. We’ll be working on our set for the Brewhouse show this weekend.

KAINE ANNOUNCE NEW EP: EXTINCTION AFTER

As announced last night through Facebook, we are set to release a brand-new EP with 5 tracks not on our new album After Extinction. These tracks have been written and recorded separate form the sessions for After Extinction, over the past two years, with the final recording sessions later this month at Unit One.

You can grab your copy of the EP on CD here: https://www.patreon.com/kaine_metal

The CD will be a Patreon exclusive only, for those paying £3 or more on the EP tier. The reason for this is to reward our existing Patreon’s with a shirt, patch and a CD each year but, with CD sales in decline, Patreon is going to become more essential to enable us to continue funding the band and we hope that offering exclusive CD releases through that platform will incentivise more people to join, especially at such a low price. If we were able to double our Patreon numbers over the coming months, we will have made significant progress. This CD will not be available anywhere else and numbers will be printed to order.

The track listings for the new EP is as follows:

  1. Evil I (All Hail The Evil One)
  2. Evil II (Evil Too)
  3. The Birmingham Blues
  4. Dragonlord
  5. On Repeat

The EP artwork can be seen here:

Patreon’s paying £3 more will also be rewarded with a further new EP this year on CD and a multi-disc set celebrating ten years of the band’s debut album alongside the shirt + patch. More details to follow. Patreon’s paying £1 will also receive a brand-new shirt and patch soon.

EP UPDATES! FALLING THROUGH FEEDOM EP RECORDING COMPLETED IN THE STUDIO – 21′ EP ARTWORK ALMOST COMPLETE

We finished the recording of the vocals last night with Talon Payne at Gallow Wood Media for the Falling Through Freedom EP. This means the EP will now be edited/mixed and mastered and released ASAP. The EP will be exclusive on CD to Patreon supporters paying £3 and up. Toby Woods and Talon Payne have again provided backing vocals, with Isaac Healy contributing for the first time to the backing vocals in drummer Liam Etheridge’s absence through injury.

On top of that we have made progress with the delayed 21′ Patreon EP with the artwork closing in on it’s final stages which can be viewed here. The vocals for the EP will be recorded on November 25th in what will hopefully be the last recording session. These sessions will take place at Unit One.

VOCAL RECORDING SESSIONS BOOKED IN FOR PATRON EPS THIS MONTH

Rage will be heading over to Gallow Wood Media on Sunday (13th) to complete the recording of the Falling Through Freedom EP vocals and Unit One Studios on the 25thfor the 2021 EP. These will hopefully be the final recording sessions for both Patreon EPs.

The 2021 EP will contain 5 brand new songs not included on the recent album After Extinction and the Falling Through Freedom EP will be re-recordings of 5 songs to celebrate the release of that album 10 years ago which will include two songs, not on the original album. These will only be available on CD through Patreon. You can get both from £3 here.
