Knock Out Kaine are a welcome curveball to what has been tipped for 2011. Unfashionably cool with their middle digit firmly raised to the trend setters & followers alike. The Lincoln-based rockers have forged a chemistry way beyond their years and on March 14th they will be releasing their debut EP ‘Kandykaine’ to the world.
With tracks ‘Little Crystal and ‘Going Down’ the band have injected a sense of 80’s rock attitude and a full on dose of adrenaline with classic guitar riffs and solos. Not content with just showcasing their rock credentials, ‘Coming Home’ delivers the perfect man-ballad that hasn’t been heard on the airwaves in an age.
After winning KERRANG!’s Best Unsigned Live Act in 2008 KOK spent the bulk of 2009/10 cutting their teeth on the UK and Europe’s live rock circuit playing everywhere from the smallest armpit rock clubs to major festivals in Slovakia and other Baltic states to which they gained some great plaudits, and caught the attention of some of rocks biggest names.
Currently on tour supporting Adler’s Appetite (Steven Adler, ex Guns N Roses’ drummer’s band) across Europe, Knock Out Kaine will be back in the UK next week for the following dates
