Published Oct 11, 2016Following the success of, well, Success, Canadian noise dudes KEN Mode are returning with a new EP. Courtesy of Reptilian Records, the new release will arrive under the name Nerve on November 10.
For the physical release, Nerve will come out as a three-track 7-inch, with each song on the release being culled from the Success sessions with Steve Albini. These include "The German Businessman," "I'm Never Looking for You" and "Let's Get Divorced," the latter of which you can listen to now below.
If that's feeling a bit slim for you, the EP will also come out digitally and feature four more tracks, mainly of the demo variety. Along with the addition of "Absolutely Not" from a previous split single with Atlas Moth, the three demos are described as "2011 pre-production demo tracks from the group's 2013-released Entrench record." As a solid from the band, the digital tracks will be included with the 7-inch.
You can see the full tracklist below, and that's the EP's cover art above, done by the band's longtime collaborator Randy Ortiz. You can pre-order the release here.
