KEN mode have debuted a new track from their forthcoming album, Success, over at NPR. The new track is titled “These Tight Jeans” and much like the previously released “Blessed”, it continues to show the band’s more fleshed-out noise rock sound. The song revolves around a disfigured, surf rock-inspired riff that writhes around pummeling drumming and beefy bass lines. Vocalist/guitarist Jesse Matthewson offered the following comments on the new track:
“…post-punk-rock tribute to the absolute insanity of the ‘hater’ culture that plagues the media, social networking, and our daily lives as human beings alive in 2015. Stop disrespecting each other and go run a marathon, do some push-ups, read a book, create something: Get a life. Life’s too short.”
KEN Mode have premiered the official video for their new track “Blessed” from their upcoming highly-anticipated Steve Albini-produced album, Success, over at Noisey. The Christopher Mills-directed clip depicts a visceral live show and simultaneously captures the energy of the new track. The song itself is a cataclysmic double-bass assault that capitalizes on the group’s noise rock influences and features extra noisy debauchery from Full of Hell‘s Dylan Walker, murderous cello from Natanielle Felicitas and insanity-laced guest vocals from Oxbow frontman Eugene S. Robinson. Check out the video for yourself after the break.
Success will be released on June 15 (UK/EU) and June 16(North America) via Season of Mist. Pre-orders can be found here, here and here. The band’s forthcoming tour dates can be found below as awell.
