Noise mongers KEN Mode, a particularly mischievous bunch of merry madmen, have a new single “Blessed”. I’m thinking #blessed has a lot of crossover potential as a life affirming hashtag as well. Perhaps the guys are on to something.
Recorded with Steve Albini (NIRVANA, THE PIXIES, THE JESUS LIZARD and more) and mastered by Bob Weston at Chicago Mastering Service, Success features art by the band’s longtime artist Randy Ortiz, and feature guest performances by Eugene Robinson (OXBOW) and members of FULL OF HELL. ‘Success’ will be available across multiple CD and LP formats. Pre-orders are available at the Season of Mist E-Shop.
Regarding the new track, front-man Jesse Matthewson comments:
The artwork and track list for ‘Success’ can be found below.
