Other News
In September, we released the Pariah EP, to some rather astonishing reviews from various online outlets.  Thankfully all positive so far. We haven’t had any Spinal Tap “Shark Sandwich” style reviews just yet!  XD  Thanks to everybody who has taken time to review the EP.  We’ve had a lot of great feedback!

We haven’t seen any reviews in any of the mainstream, paper-based music rags yet either – so if you do spot one, plesase feel free to let us know and/or share a pic/scan of it on one of our social media pages!

In October, we spent a long weekend in Scotland having quality time with our roster mates in  Perpetua, where we played some great shows in Glasgow, Dumfries and Aberdeen alongside Perpetua and a host of other great bands. Thanks to everybody who came out to see us and bought shirts and CD’s.  We hope to be back up there soon for more Haggis, neeps and tatties!

We are also starting to write and demo ideas for a new batch of songs.  We don’t have any fixed plans for the new material ATM. So we don’t know if it will be an album, or an EP, it will just be whatever it is! There are no time-scales, no grand plans in action. We’re just going to take our time and see what we can come up with.   In the meantime, we’ll still be gigging the hell out of our existing back-catalogue!

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:

In Other News:
Last weekend we went to Glastonbury and filmed the live-action parts for the video for Red Earth – the first track on our upcoming 4 track e.p. “Pariah”.   Behind the camera is our very good friend Nathan Hamley, who previously worked on our videos for In Vivo and Mechanical Rapture.

Here are a couple of stills from the location:
RedEarth-PariahRedEarth-location
Huge thanks to Nathan for all of his continued hard-work.  Thanks also to Chris, Zoe and the rest of the cast.  Biggest thanks of all to the community at the Zig-Zag building in Glastonbury for very kindly letting us use their commune as a location for our shoot.  You are all freaking awesome!

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.

OTHER NEWS:
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.
