KEN Mode have already released three songs from the upcoming album, Success. Due out June 16th on Season of Mist, they’ve released a music video for “Blessed,” and streamed,”Management Control,” and “These Tight Jeans.” Now the band is offering an audio stream of “Dead Actors,” the last track on the nine-song album and it’s a slowed down, almost “spoken word” affair.
The new album, their sixth, was recorded by Steve Albini (Nirvana, Oxbow, Zao), and includes guest appearance by vocalist Eugene Robinson (of the aforementioned Oxbow) and members of grindcore band Full of Hell.
Soon after the release of Success, KEN Mode will hit the road for a small tour in mid-June to support the new album with Fight Amp.
