EP Update 

   The three year studio wait is over! Well, the recording part, anyway.   

   The band worked hard through this past weekend laying the tracks to their newest EP. The Able Kind confidently delivers their sound on the 5 tracks holding true to the various influences that help the band be what it is. One particular song (Homage) pays tribute to those many bands our trio grew with, past and present. The list is too long to mention all. - An upbeat pulse carries the brunt of each track in what is sure to be an engaging release.



Back At 'Er 

   The Able Kind is hitting the recording studio after almost 3 years, mid-next month! Recording their 3rd EP, the trio has picked a fistful of new songs to feature on the project. The band has been working hard writing and honing their sound since Belcher came back to the group after a 3 year hiatus. During this recent time, TAK has kept up the adrenaline playing a few gigs between their involvement with Landmark Events'  Battle of Bands... making it to the finals.

   "Since Belcher's been back, practices have been getting tighter and we've been laughing a lot, as well. This is a good time for us."

   The trio is looking forward to the up-coming summer and having new, current material to promote. The Able Kind is gaining momentum and is projecting to be busy the rest of this year.



Hang Fire! 

   Our LME battle set for the 12th is pushed to another date, yet to be determined. Anyone's tickets held for the set will be honored at the announced date. 


The Big FINALE! 

   This is it: crunch time. March 12 is The Able Kind's finale for Landmark Events local Edmonton's Battle of the Bands. The trio has worked hard to get to this point and have been having a blast doing it! Meeting new people along the way has been most rewarding.

Catch Up! 

   The past 2 Fridays have been busy for the band, rockin' a couple local joints around the city:

   The 12th - The Forge hosted a very talented night at Mercury Room, downtown. A crew of new and old friends came to the event and props to those who made the 5 hr journey to hang with us that weekend!

   The 19th - DV8, as you may have heard, is no longer just off Whyte. Rod, though, is keeping the rock alive! The maiden voyage at Mama's Pizza (off Gretzky on 101ave.) was a definite success. The atmosphere at the bar was most positive as the bands christened the newly built stage and rocked the house into the wee hours of the morning. - Shout to "Young Lion"(Ben Hooke) for singing with us. Good times, bud!
