Well 2010 is here and it looks set to be a year to remember for Karn8, especially after 2009 which was the band's most successful year to date. We achieved a hell of a lot and its easy to take it all for granted. So we thought we'd give you a quick re-cap...
"Kirst provides those oh so sweet breathless whispers before nailing you to the floor" - Vanity Project
Karn8 played almost 40 gigs in 2009 (but wanted more) one of the highlights being The Rocksound Stage at Guilfest supporting You Me At Six and Attack Attack!. Other awesome bands we played with included To The Bones, My Passion and the awesome Senser.

The release of our first album 'Of All The Strange Things' was also a massive milestone for us as a band, as we wrote, recorded, mixed, marketed and distrubuted it ourselves. It recieved great reviews in the press and continues to sell well on Amazon and iTunes

"Let yourself be seduced by the sly provocateur that is Karn8" - Rockfreaks.com
We also had the pleasure of working with some amazing photographers who managed to capture the energy and attitude of the Karn8 live experience.

The new year has already started full tilt, with us diving straight into recording pre-production demos of our new material, which will hopefully become our new album in 2010. Many gigs and mini tours are also being discussed and hopefully well be out and about playing live very soon.
We would also like to thank everyone who supported Karn8 in 2009, whether your a promoter, photographer, DJ, Music Journalist or just a fan!
Kirst, Bones & Leigh
