KEN mode signs with Season Of Mist

Official press release: Season Of Mist is proud to announce the signing of metallic post-hardcore outfit KEN mode. The Winnipeg, MB, Canada based trio (Jesse Matthewson : Guitars, Vocals, Shane Matthewson: Drums, Andrew Lacour: Bass, Vocals) recently completed recording their new album 'Entrench' with acclaimed engineer Matt Bayles (Mastodon, Isis, Pearl Jam, The Sword). 'Entrench' will be released on CD and digitally on March 19th, 2013 (March 15th in Europe) with the vinyl edition to follow shortly thereafter. The track listing for 'Entrench' is as follows: 01. Counter Culture Complex 02. No; I'm in Control 03. Your Heartwarming Story Makes Me Sick 04. The Terror Pulse 05. The Promises of God 06. Romeo Must Never Know 07. Secret Vasectomy 08. Figure Your Life Out 09. Daeodon 10. Why Don't You Just Quit? 11. Monomyth Showcasing powerful noise rock influenced by AmRep's finest (Melvins, Jesus Lizard, Helmet), and fortified by an unhealthy dose of modern hardcore intensity (Converge, Dillinger Escape Plan Every Time I Die), 'Entrench' further asserts the band's stance against a stagnant take on rock, metal, and hardcore. The band issued the following statement: "The only logical way to follow up on the success of our previous album 'Venerable', was to put our noses to the grindstone and top that record in every way possible. With 'Entrench', we are convinced we have accomplished this. 'Entrench' is our most collaborative effort, and the most creative and sonically diverse album of our entire career. 'Entrench' sees us expand in both our handling of dynamics and general song and album craftsmanship; utilizing piano, keyboards, and strings to build on the classic power trio format. For this album, we have also enlisted guest vocal contributions from Dave Verellen (Narrows, ex-Botch) and former Deadguy/Kiss It Goodbye vocalist Tim Singer. Both of them add another layer of icing to the metallic-hardcore-noise-rock-whatever-core cake we've baked."

1) "A stagnant take on rock, metal, and hardcore" 2) Long Pretentious Press Release 3) Vocals Are Incredibly Annoying Especially Grungy Singing 4) No One Cares About Converge Anymore So Why Would They Care About A Converge Cover Band 5) Shit Is Way Too Progressive AKA Painfully Boring 6) This Subgenre Was Dead 10 Years Ago

Ahh yes one more that I forgot, save the best for last: 7) "Metallic-hardcore-noise-r ock-whatever-core"

Jessmode 1/8/2013 10:45:57 AM

I love you hosers.

anonymous 1/8/2013 11:19:56 AM

These guys sound absolutely nothing like Converge. People who can't get behind this are gays. Cowboy hats are stoked though.

anonymous 1/8/2013 11:21:48 AM

Only heavy band I care about anymore. Looking forward to it immensely.

anonymous 1/8/2013 11:40:47 AM

These guys are so incredibly nice. They fckin rip live too. So good, really pumped.

KEN mode is best mode.

anonymous 1/8/2013 3:45:02 PM

hahaha, lambgoat idiots. So obviously talking shit without having heard the band. People with taste are stoked. If you think this stuff isn't relevant you're too stupid to get it. Best band that even gets mentioned on this stupid website.

anonymous 1/8/2013 5:10:40 PM

The only good thing about this press release was mentioning Tim Singer.

anonymous 1/8/2013 7:25:05 PM

hahaha, lambgoat idiots. So obviously talking shit without having heard the band. People with taste are stoked. If you think this stuff isn't relevant you're too stupid to get it. Best band that even gets mentioned on this stupid website. Band member or perhaps the boyfriend of a band member. No one else cares about this garbage. And believing that this shit is "intelligent" just shows how stupid you are.

Jessmode 1/8/2013 7:54:05 PM

Band members don't post anonymously on this site ;)

I love Seasons of the abyss.

anonymous 1/8/2013 9:35:33 PM

anonymous 1/8/2013 11:07:51 PM

This band is rad. Your opinion is irrelevant. Stoked for this!

I like KEN Mode, Season Of Mist, Tim Singer, Matt Bayles, and Dave Verellen. I'm Stoked.

anonymous 1/9/2013 4:41:11 AM

They've become quite prolific the past few years. Looking forward to hearing this.

anonymous 1/9/2013 5:47:24 AM

Great news for KEN mode. Season of Mist really has been signing some excellent bands lately.

withoutashield 1/9/2013 7:57:31 AM

Good for them. I hope to finally catch them live on this tour with TITD and Fight Amp.

In Trenches are from Australia, mate not bluddy Winnipeg silly lambed-goat

anonymous 1/18/2013 12:58:10 AM

poser gay shitmetal. Damageplan fans are stoked.

anonymous 1/18/2013 2:22:56 AM

Damageplan!? Forgive me if I missed the sarcasm or something, But If you think that KEN mode sounds anything like them then you've managed to reach an entirely new low in stupid. And if (some of) you people truly think that their last album Venerable is either "gay shit metal" or simple converge worship, I would bet a fortune that you haven't genuinely listened to to it. -Not a member, don't know this band personally.
