KEN mode To Release New Album “Void” In September, Debut “The Shrike”


KEN mode‘s follow-up to last year’s “Null” has fittingly been titled “Void” and will arrive in September. That effort will arrive on September 22nd—one day short of being a year to the day of the September 23rd, 2022 release of “Null“. As you may have already surmised, “Void” will serve as a companion album “Null“.

The band’s vocalist/guitarist, etc. Jesse Matthewson commented of that:

“This album is the companion piece to 2022’s ‘Null‘ album. Both were written and produced at the same time, throughout the pandemic, and recorded by Andrew Schneider in the fall of 2021. The two-album arc was written with the intention of being two separate works that could be coupled together to make one full album.”

“‘Void‘ conveys the overwhelming sadness and disappointment of 2021, after the initial crazed shock of 2020. We saw our circumstances continue to be held up by the lowest common denominator, as we attempted to move forward with our lives.”

The song “The Shrike” is the third single to be shared from this newly announced album. Matthewson said of it, “It’s our version of a classic, driving rock song. Equal parts Drive Like Jehu and Queens of the Stone Age.”
