Veteran metal experimenters KEN Mode are just about to drop their seventh album Loved later this month. Before they do, the band have shared another new single and expanded their tour. 

Following their drop of “Feathers & Lips,” KEN Mode have delivered a new song called “Not Soulmates.” The track is yet another mind-melting metal number that ties a number of subgenres and influences together.

Describing the song to Consequence of Sound, which premiered the track, the band’s Jesse Matthewson said, “It’s got riffs you can throw round-house kicks to and is an ode to the Melvins and Zeni Geva.”

He added that Fugazi and Jesus Lizard were also influences on the track. 

You can listen to “Not Soulmates” below, where you’ll also find KEN Mode’s expanded tour itinerary. 

Loved will land on August 31 through through New Damage/Season of Mist.
