To begin with this was self-released but after getting good reviews Trash City Records offered to put the album 'Crash Helmet Hoopla' out in March 2001. In January 2002 KENISIA took over the studio once more to record a new album, which they sent out to a few labels hoping they would like it as much as the band did. In July 2002 the new CD nothing to say was released on Household Name Records. With wide ranging influences the bands musical style had evolved into today's ska/punk and reggae/rock outbursts. Original lead singer Alan Cains departed in late 2003 to explore the world and James Lambeth, the bands American trumpet player took over the vocal duties. With an exceptionally strong voice James added another dimension to the band helping them to continue going from strength to strength. Shortly after James took over the vocal duties KENISIA recorded a Radio 1 Session for the “Lock up” show at the legendary Maida Vale studios.
Three tracks were recorded including two new songs the band had written with James, a new era had arrived. With Several UK tours now under their belt, KENISIA went into the studio again in 2005, to work on new material. Prototype is the third album from Bristol's KENISIA. Released on Household Name Records (CAPDOWN, LIGHTYEAR & ADEQUATE SEVEN). In 2007 original drummer Tom Shorland left Kenisia to start a family and Stuart Williams (formerly of Slick Fifty) joined to take over drumming duties. Influenced by drummers like Dave Grohl and Stewart Copeland, Stu quickly settled into the band with his very own distinctive style. KENISIA are currently recording new material and hope to release an EP later in the year. Read more on Last.fm.
