Kinasis News – August 2017

OK, lots has been going on recently.
First up I (Jas – Kinasis drums) had a few health related issues that needed sorting out – hence the lack of updates on the website. Fortunately, I am  back to 100% health now and ready to resume my duties. Back to rehearsals this weekend after 5 or 6 weeks away from the kit…..

During my down-time, the rest of the band have been busy upgrading their rigs and working out how to use their new gear.

A few weeks ago, we released the video for Red Earth – the first track from our new e.p. ‘Pariah’, which is due to be released on Fri Sept 29th 2017.  The video has been viewed over 6K times on Facebook.  Not so many youtube plays yet, but it seems to have been well-received so far!

More information about the e.p. release will be announced in due course. In the meantime, please continue to enjoy the new vid:

Live Dates:

We have a few live dates coming up – most notably we have just been booked as last-minute headliners for Mosh Against Cancer Derby 4 at the Hairy Dog in Derby on Sept 16th (replacing original headliners Divine Chaos). We’re looking forward to that one.

Kinasis News – July 2017

So we’re nearing the end of July and we’ve been busy behind-the-scenes making preparations for  something.  If you’ve been on our Facebook page recently, you may have noticed a count-down which will be reaching 0 this Friday… So something is happening on Friday…. But what?!  At this time we can only confirm that we shall be revealing something new. So please watch our FB page over the coming days to find out exactly what and when.

If you aren’t on FB – watch this space, or our other social media accounts on Friday for more details. And that’s enough mystery for now!  Or is it?!  {yes, that definitely is enough!}

We also have a few gigs lined up in the coming months.

Kinasis live @ Devizes tonight

After some much needed time off, we’re back in action tonight with a gig at our 2nd home-town – aka Devizes.

We’ll be appearing at The Bell by the Green alongside Rival Pilots and Radio Silence. The evening kicks off at 8pm. Entry is only £3.   We can’t wait.

We have made some changes to our set ahead of our appearance at the Tech-fest all-dayer in London on June 17th. At the cost of some old favourites – we have included three new songs from our new E.P. into the set.  One of them (Black Dog) has been in our set for a little while.  But the other two are pretty much unheard. One was played once at Mammothfest last year and the other has never been played live.  So we are excited to be publicly unveiling the new tracks tonight.

Speaking of the new e.p. – we have finally commissioned an artist to create the artwork for the e.p.  None other than Andy Pilkington from Very Metal Art. We will be also be filming the live action parts for the first video in the next couple of weeks with our good friend Nathan Hamley – who produced our videos for In Vivo and Mechanical Rapture.

We have more gig-dates and announcements on the way.  Please keep an eye on our facebook page and twitter feed.

We round off April tomorrow afternoon (30th) at the Brickmakers in Norwich for Thrashersaurus. We will be opening up the days proceedings at the B2 from 1pm.
Bring your hangovers from Saturday and some hair of the dog (purely medicinal) and we’ll see if we can help fix things by liberally applying loud metal to the affected area……

Kinasis Booked For Hammerfest…

We’ve been keeping quiet about this for a little while now, but we are very proud to finally be able to announce our participation in this years Hammerfest, which will be taking place at Hafan Y Mor Holiday Park in Gwynedd, North Wales from the 23rd-26th March 2017.

We are due to play the second stage on Saturday 25th March – from 2pm-2:40pm, for the HRH Young Blood section of the festival.

Huge thanks to our manager Rachael @ Enso Music Management for sorting this out for us!

First gigs of 2017, studio update and more…

So news…. What’s happening on planet Kinasis?! Apparently lots! Lots of stuff is happening – all at the same time.

This weekend we have our first gigs of 2017.
Starting off on Friday night (17th Feb) with a little birthday shindig at Finns in Weymouth for our good friend Mark from Fissure of Riddles. Then on Saturday (18th Feb), we’re off to the Temple of Boom in Leeds for Wrathfest Vol1, an all day festival where we’ll be the main support act for headliners Sworn Amongst. Yup, Kinasis live at Leeds!

There are a few other dates coming up – including at least one that we are really excited about, but which we are forbidden to announce ATM! And that’s all we’ll say about that… Appendages crossed, we’ll be able to announce something exciting soon. So watch this space!

What else is going on? Well, Bloodstocks annual M2TM competition is already in full swing with heats happening all over the country (it seems to get earlier every year!). We were finalists in the 2015 Bristol M2TM heats, where we were pipped to the post by Endeavour and the mighty Mortishead. Last year there were no M2TM heats in Bristol, so we skipped last year. Sadly, this year we aren’t taking part because we are busy working on the new EP. But, wherever you live (in the UK at least) – we heartily encourage you to pop along to your local M2TM heats and support some local bands who are battling their way to Bloodstock!

In lieu of M2TM, this year we are taking part in the Wychwood Brewery/Hobgoblin Bloodstock Video competition instead. You can vote for our video here:

Our very metal brothers and sister in Xerosun have also entered the Bloodstock video competition. So go check that out and go vote for some bands.

Finally, the new EP:
If you’ve read any of our wibblings online recently, you’ll be aware that we recorded four songs with Justin Hill (ex-Sikth) in mid January. We’ve now had the initial mixes back for all four tracks….. And wow! We can’t wait for you to get your ear-holes around this lot of noise. Some of it sounds absolutely INSANE. Can’t wait to get the final mixes back…. Even we were surprised by how heavy the new material sounds.

We’re currently arguing over the title for the EP and coming up with ideas for the artwork. And we have four videos to get started on…… Damn, the list of things to do never ends with this project. Either way, we’ve got a lot to be getting on with. We will sporadically be popping out for random live dates here and there. Perhaps the odd festival or mini-tour here and there. Other than that, we’ll be working on more EP related stuff…

If you’re at Wrathfest this weekend, we’ll see you in the pit!

Mammothfest stage times announced…..

Just about a week to go until we hit Mammothfest 2016.  So head over to their website and get your tickets if you haven’t already (assuming they haven’t sold out just yet!)…..

Stage times have recently been announced for Sunday. We have a 30 minute set from 15:45-16:15, right before our very metal brothers (and sister) in Xerosun and Ascaris. So that section of the afternoon will be a bit of a family reunion. And there are some great bands on the rest of the bill – so get there in time to catch the first band – Just like Pokemon, you gotta catch them all.

In other news, we’ve been pretty quiet online and on social media lately – partly thanks to working stupidly long hours and partly thanks to being locked away rehearsing our Mammothfest set and tightening up our new material ready for when we hit the studio next year with Justin Hill (from SikTh) to record our E.P.

If you saw us on tour with Xerosun earlier this year, or any gigs we’ve had since then – you will know that we added a brand new song to our set called ‘Black dog’.  Well… Sadly the ‘dog’ has been put back in the kennel for now and won’t be appearing in our set again until after we hit the studio in January. But fear not – We WILL be airing another new song at Mammothfest called ‘Red Earth’, which will be our opening track.  And this may just be the only time we play it live before we record it.

Anyway, we’re looking forward to destroying Brighton next week…. The only question now is… Can we be trusted to remember to bring the napkins this time? Or is it our turn to bring the cake??  Heh heh – Ascaris know what we’re talking about! XD
