After releasing their Artoffact Records debut, NULL (read our review), on September 23rd last year, KEN mode announces a West Coast US tour that will see the band bring its pummelling noise-rock to the USA and Canada. The March dates are in advance of KEN mode’s return to Europe, where they will perform exclusively for Roadburn Festival.

Supporting KEN mode once again will be Illinois screamo trio Frail Body. Tickets and information can be found here:

States KEN mode guitarist/vocalist Jesse Matthewson:

“We haven’t had a chance to get down to California or the south west section of the US in almost 8 years, so this one is a long time coming. Even the PNW has been 4 years. We had so much fun doing the thing with Frail Body last fall, we decided to do it again! It’s cold where both of us are from, so we figured, let’s go somewhere warm together!”

Born in 2003, V13 was a socio-political website that, in 2005, morphed into PureGrainAudio and spent 15 years developing into one of Canada's (and the world’s) leading music sites. On the eve of the site’s 15th anniversary, a full re-launch and rebrand takes us back to our roots and opens the door to a full suite of Music, Film, TV, and Cultural content.
