Video interview:KEN Mode’s Jesse Matthewson

Last week Winnipeg’s KEN Mode played Toronto’s Garrison as part of their current North American tour in support of their brand new album Venerable, which is released today on Profound Lore. I caught up with KM guitarist/vocalist Jesse Matthewson outside of the venue just before they played to do a quick video interview in which we discuss the current tour, the new album and their working association with Profound Lore. Oh yeah – watch for the rat in the window of the store during the video too!
