KEN MODE "Counter Culture Complex" song stream

The opening track "Counter Culture Complex" of the KEN Mode's fifth studio album entitled "Entrech" (out March 15 on Season of Mist) is available for streaming.

"What to say about Counter Culture Complex…musically the song’s working title was “Party fun blast”, just to give you an idea of where we were coming from during the writing process. We feel, in terms of how the song represents the album as a whole, that it encapsulates the influence that having Andrew LaCour (Khann, new bassist as of 2011) as a contributing writer has had on the band. There’s definitely a more raw, punk/hardcore element going on with this record, at least in my opinion, and I feel that ‘Counter Culture Complex’ is a perfect example of that energy and attitude. The lyrics themselves deal with growing up and picking your battles; dealing with a basic understanding of the world and the people inhabiting it as you move on from being a teenager/young adult to being old enough that you should know better." - Jesse Matthewson
