KEN mode announce tour with Frail Body

Ken Mode Single

Brenna Faris

With its eighth full-length album, NULL, set for a September 23rd release on Artoffact Records, KEN mode announces a US fall tour that will see the band bring its metallic noise-rock across the East Coast and Midwest. Included in the 3-week run is a headlining slot at No Coast Fest in Denton, TX, as well as stops in some cities the band has not played since 2015. Supporting KEN mode will be Illinois screamo trio Frail Body.


KEN mode guitarist/vocalist Jesse Matthewson commented:

"We needed to get out and pound the pavement, as it's the only way we know to properly launch a record. We're thankful we're able to bring out a killer younger band like Frail Body, who embodies everything that is right in this music: sick riffs, passion, and emotion. We've been working on this one for a while, and are super excited to announce this run, all the way down to Texas, up the East Coast, and back up through the Midwest. I can hear the 'what about ______?!' already! Since we're a day job band these days, we can't afford to take off 4-6 weeks to do full territory runs anymore, so we try to cover as much range as we can without having our businesses completely fall apart in our absence. Being an adult sucks, but in terms of appropriate distractions from the day to day, we've set up an ideal run to showcase all of the new material, and are super excited to get to see Frail Body every night for three weeks! We're playing a lot of our favorite venues, and are super stoked to see so many of our American friends. More to come, as we continue to navigate this entertaining pandemic performance landscape!"
