Official press release: Winnipeg power-trio KEN mode will record their new album, titled 'Success', with Steve Albini (High On Fire, Neurosis). Albini and the band will convene on November 23 at Winnipeg's Empire Recording to start the process. The album will be mastered by Bob Weston at Chicago Mastering Service. 'Success' will feature art by the band's longtime artist Randy Ortiz, and feature guest performances by Eugene Robinson (Oxbow) and members of Full Of Hell. Some early song titles include: "Blessed", "Absolutely Not", "Failing at Fun Since 1981", "Dead Actors", "A Catalog of Small Disappointments", "Management Control", "A Passive Disaster", and "I Just Liked Fire". The band will be debuting a multitude of new material on their current European tour. Frontman Jesse Matthewson describes the album as being "a decidedly stripped down northern noise rock apocalypse to be unleashed on the world. Time to take this back to our roots."
