KEN Mode release another new track from ‘Entrench’ (stream)

KEN Mode

KEN Mode comes around the bend again with their new Matt Bayles-produced effort, Entrench, the first featuring bassist Andrew LaCour (ed-Khann). For a trio that has always had a revolving door for the man on the four-string, the stability is becoming. LaCour’s contribution as a live member before joining on has made the band coalesce, and his songwriting abilities have helped shake things up, but only in the best ways. Case and point, the new track “Secret Vasectomy” which makes its debut here today.

Guitarist/frontman Jesse Matthewson (who Invisible Oranges interviewed earlier this month) describes the track:

“Secret Vasectomy” 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.
