Today the band returns to writing and rehearsing for the new album at Pioneer Music in Colchester. Kaine is currently working on the follow up to Reforge The Steel, as well as getting themselves gig ready for when live music returns in full in the UK. You can see some highlights from last weeks session above.
If you have caught Toby’s YouTube channel recently, you would have noticed he has been recently uploading performances of his favourite songs onto the platform. So far he’s covered Sabaton, The Darkness, Megadeth and Ozzy Osbourne (above), with his cover of Bark at the Moon now breaking 2000 views.
He’s also recorded himself playing a number of Kaine songs, and songs from his previous bands Cannon. Check out his channel and like/subscribe.
Anthony Murch (Guitarist for The Rock Dinosaurs and It’s Not A Phase Mum) has done a play through on his new YouTube channel AHM Music of the song Iron Lady from the 2014 album The Waystone.
Anthony Murch was the lead guitarist in Kaine from 2012 to 2015 performing on the Falling Through Freedom and The Waystone albums. He has since appeared as a guest on stage with the band and a guest solo for the single version of Black on Reforge The Steel.
We’ve recently experienced a spike in people being able to see and interact with our posts across social media so we thought it would be a good time to remind people about our new album Reforge The Steel and where you can by the CD and listen to the new album.
Footage from our rehearsals and writing session from Friday at Pioneer Music, Colchester is now online on YouTube.
The bands official upload of the album has now broken 5,500 views on YouTube since it was released in February. We thank everyone who has checked the album out there so far, and to those who have shared and supported the album since it’s release.
You can listen to the album on various formats below (and more!), and purchase the album for £3 on bandcamp.

Recent changes to facebook has made it even harder to reach our fans with posts generally reaching just 100 people or under. These changes are making it increasingly harder to communicate with our fanbase.
In addition to restricting our facebook posts to only a small number of people, the cost of paying to promote our posts (which is the only way to guarantee any number of people will see our page) is increasing significantly with even fewer people seeing our adverts than ever before for the money we are paying out. The number of legitimate facebook users seeing adverts is also becoming a real issue, with many fake profiles on the system driving up the costs for no benefit to the band. This isn’t likely to change as facebook relies on its advertising income to continue operating the service and we accept this.
Kaine has ever present on social media since it’s inception, but facebook’s new business model is now hindering our ability to communicate with existing fans and to promote our music to new people and with this in mind we will be maximizing our use of alternate social media platforms.

We would also encourage promoters and venues to use alternative means to promote shows, as by posting on your page generally won’t be seen without targeted and paid for promotion. Timeline posts or posts or in various facebook groups will not been seen by many users, so please bare this in mind. Facebook invites to events don’t always show up for users so to ensure you reach as many people as possible you must either pay to promote the show and use alternate means as we do. You cannot blame the bands on the bill for a low turnout if you fail to recognise and address this.
