Ken Mode are gearing up for a massive assault on North America with the upcoming release of ‘Venerable’ on March 15th via Profound Lore. Now the band is happy to unveil a track from the album exclusively to AOL Noisecreep. “Batholith” is a raw slab of hardcore fury, showcasing the band at their most ferocious and can be heard RIGHT HERE.

Vocalist and guitarist Jesse Matthewson told Noisecreep the following regarding the song: “‘Batholith’, from a lyrical standpoint, is about the cold, miserable routines that dictate our daily lives and how we attempt to cope with them. I admit, it’s nothing terribly profound from a philosophical standpoint, but it got the creative juices flowing to a satisfactory level. We just wanted this song to be something you could stomp your foot to and sing along at times.”

Ken Mode is also soon to reveal extensive tour dates through both the US and Canada. Stay tuned for more details!
