KEN mode - NERVE 7"EP / DIGITAL REP 127

The nerve of this band.

Following the release of last year’s dividing ‘Success’ LP, KEN mode is back, this time on Reptilian Records, with a three song B-sides 7” EP simply titled “NERVE”, to be released Nov. 10th.

Three unreleased tracks from the Steve Albini recorded ‘Success’ sessions of late 2014, wrapped up in brand new artwork from the band’s longtime collaborator Randy Ortiz.

The Digital Download (included FREE with vinyl purchase) also includes the previously unreleased digital version of the track "Absolutely Not" from a split single with Atlas Moth as well as three 2011 pre-production demo tracks from the group’s 2013 released ‘Entrench’ record -
- That's a total of 7 tracks!

The band has been largely taking 2016 off from touring in response to their unrelenting schedule since 2010, with the Matthewson brothers focusing on starting their artist business management company, MKM Management Services (www.mkmmanagementservices.com), and beginning the process of writing their follow up full length, which promises to be a much darker experiment in noise and metallic themes than their previous output.

In celebration of the new 7”, the group will be playing two shows in their respective homes up in Canada with noise punks TUNIC:

Nov 10, 2016 – Winnipeg, MB - @ the Good Will Social Club w/tunic
Nov 12, 2016 – Saskatoon, SK - @ Vangelis w/tunic
