KEN Mode Announce Sprawling Canada/U.S. Tour

KEN Mode Announce Sprawling Canada/U.S. Tour
Explosive noisecore dudes KEN Mode have been a busy bunch of Winnipeg, MB-based bees. As previously reported, the band's follow-up to 2008's Mennonite is in the can and heading our way. Recorded by legendary producer Kurt Ballou (Converge, Trap Them, Doomriders) at his God City Studios, Venerable will hit streets March 15 via Profound Lore.

Still, a press release assures us that this is only the calm before the storm. As clerks stock shelves with the beastly affair, KEN Mode will already be on the road in support of the album during a massive North American tour.

Along with a trek to SXSW, the band will tear up asphalt/stages alongside genre cohorts and fellow Canadians Fuck the Facts and doom thrashers Black Breath, among others. They also will make more than a few Canadian stops on the tour, with shows slated for Toronto, Montreal, Vancouver and Calgary, just to name a few.
