Tue, Feb 26 2013: KEN MODE

Latest release: "Entrench"

Release date: Fri, Mar 15 2013, US Tue, Mar 19 2013

“Secret Vasectomy” another KEN MODE track from the forthcoming ‘Entrench’ album, has premiered online. The song is available through Brooklyn Vegan and Invisible Oranges.

Regarding the new song, frontman Jesse Matthewson said "It was one of the first songs we put together during the 'Entrench' writing sessions, but more particularly it was the first that we truly collaborated on with Andrew, as the other three songs we finished in that first get-together were largely made up of riffs that I'd constructed going into the session. To me, it's a punk song; a nasty, nasty punk song. Lyrically speaking, I'm sure everyone can relate to the situation of needing to produce, yet feeling utterly uninspired to write anything of any perceived value whatsoever; this is the tipping point. When you refuse to acknowledge the elephant in the room as a muse and instead you slump in your chair and shoot blanks."
