On previous news, KEN mode have announced the streaming of a fourth brand new song taken from their forthcoming sixth full-length 'Success', which has been scheduled for June 15th (June 16th in North America). The power trio from Winnipeg, Canada is exclusively premiering the track "Dead Actors" via Brooklyn Vegan and Invisible Oranges in the US and for the rest of the world through The Quietus. All forthcoming KEN mode live dates in Europe and North America are listed below.

'Success' represents a bold move towards sounds that originally inspired the band at the beginning sixteen years ago. KEN mode have previously proved this claim by releasing a video for the opening track "Blessed" as well as the tracks "These Tight Jeans" and "Management Control".

The album can already be pre-ordered in various formats through the Season of Mist shop.

KEN mode recorded 'Success' with legendary engineer Steve Albini (NIRVANA, THE JESUS LIZARD, PJ HARVEY) to capture the material in a fully live and analogue session in the band's hometown in November 2014. This set-up brought to fruition the most raw, rock and roll sound this band has ever put forth.

KEN mode have already revealed the cover of 'Success', which was created by acclaimed Winnipeg based fine artist Randy Ortiz. The artwork can now be viewed below along with the tracklist.
