Red Cain to release new studio album “Kindred: Act II” on January 22nd 2021

Canada’s Red Cain is finishing their “Kindred” saga with the release of “Kindred: Act II”. The album was originally slated to be unleashed on December 4th, 2020, but due to interruptions caused by this year’s main culprit, Covid, the band has decided to push back their second studio album’s digital sales date to January 22nd, 2021, along with announcing the CD physical release will be done by Sliptrick Records at a later date in the new year.

The band comments:
