Event Description
KEN Mode, Frail Body, Sarin, Greber

Kill Everyone Now mode. KEN mode: an ethos legendary Black Flag front-man Henry Rollins would use to describe the band’s state of mind while taking the stage for the endless touring cycle of their genre defying classic album ‘My War’. This proved to be the psychological foundation/attitude for the project brothers Jesse and Shane Matthewson would dedicate their entire adult lives to, seeing them spread a manic form of metal + hardcore infused with noise rock across the globe.

Drawing from not only the desperate noise and industrial sonics of the 80’s and 90’s ala Swans, Einsturzende Neubauten, or even a Nine Inch Nails, the band has mixed in a decidedly more desperate tone to their already pointed metallic hardcore influenced “extreme noise rock” (ala Melvins/ Today Is The Day meets Converge/Botch), that has become their signature.

Cutting their teeth in the early aughts, when chaotic hardcore was at its peak, KEN mode would find breakout underground notoriety with a quintet of records in the 2010’s, working with a who’s who of metal and hardcore producers in Kurt Ballou (Converge), Matt Bayles (Botch/Isis), Steve Albini (Nirvana/The Jesus Lizard), and Andrew Schneider (Unsane/Cave In), while maintaining an unrelenting tour schedule with such acts as Russian Circles, Torche, Deafheaven, Norma Jean, Kylesa, Pelican, Daughters, Revocation, Full of Hell, Inter Arma, Today is the Day, Birds In Row, and more.
