The one and only KEN mode is setting out to take on Europe and the UK once again and this time they will be joined by rising sludge metal titans, Fange!
The upcoming tour kicks off in on September 24th at Amplifest in Porto, PT and sees the band blasting through another 16 cities before the finale in London, UK at Perpetual Flame Ministries on October 14th.

On the tour, Jesse Matthewson (guitar & vocals) comments: “It will have been 5 years since we’ve done a proper European tour, and we are excited to bring this new lineup to the mainland. Roadburn was but a warmup for what we’re going to unleash. I wish we had more than 3 weeks to do it in… so we’ll just have to come back more frequently over the next year to cover more terrain! Bookending this trip with Amplifest and Perpetual Flame Ministries Vol 2 is going to be an absolute blast, and it will be a pleasure to get to see Fange every night for 3 weeks. They are a name you’ll be hearing more from, that I can guarantee”.
With more corrosive emotion than ever, KEN mode recently unveiled a new single via Toronto’s Artoffact Records. The masterfully abrasive “I Cannot” kicks off and closes out akin to a live show with heavy, well-placed feedback – sure to get anyone fortunate enough to make it to one of these tour dates pumped right up. Seamlessly blending together deep metal riffs, noise-rock vocals, and punk rock chaos, the new track is yet another showcase of this band’s astounding ability to blend genres effortlessly. Something you definitely do not want to miss live.
Listen to “I Cannot” here.
