Since we started this band almost 10 years ago our goal has always been to create the best music we can and to never compromise on quality. That applies to writing, the recording process, who we work with, merchandise and everything else.

We have also strived to make a different sounding record with every new album we make, and Obscura is no exception. This is our second time working with Russ Russell, who has become a firm friend and the perfect person to make our musical dreams become reality. He understands each of our personalities, always gets the best out of each of us and makes incredible sounding records. 

The only downside of our approach is that it's not cheap!! Working with rock royalty producers, employing top shelf PR companies, putting out quality Vinyl, quality produced CD's and High end merch with lots of different designs costs a small fortune. We each pump every cent of extra money we have into this band, but putting out a full length album still leaves us all begging, borrowing and stealing everything we can to make it happen. This is why we are asking for you, the fans, to help us in any way you can.  If you want an opportunity to receive new merchandise, our first ever Vinyl and the new album before it hits the shelves and becomes available to the public then you can do so by purchasing one of our many Rewards or simply donating what you can.

We work with a label (Divebomb Records) to put out our music and they have always been great to us, which is why we're using them again for Obscura, but we are still very much a DIY band and we pay for everything ourselves and we all put in the many hours of behind the scenes work required to keep the Eradikator Machine moving forward and putting out music.

So if you want to continue to support us and independent music then please buy an exclusive or donate whatever you can. Every penny is appreciated and will help us to keep making music. Just so you know exactly what your donation is for, we will be using the Kickstarted funds to help fund all the costs involved in releasing the album. We each saved for 4 years and just had enough to pay for the recording, but now there's Marketing/PR, Merchandise, Vinyl pressing, CD pressing, Music Video's and more that needs to be paid for in order to release the album. 

To anyone who has ever bought a CD or Merchandise, seen us live, said something nice to us directly or online we love you all and thankyou from the bottom of our hearts and hope you continue to support us with our new album so we can keep making music for you all.

Andy, Liam, Pat & Jon

Risks and challenges

Playing in a band and trying to release music without big labels and budgets behind you is always challenging and poses its own unique risks and challenges. The main one for almost all bands is always funds. Paying to make records and release them off your own back whilst trying to pay your rent/mortgage and support your family can be a difficult balancing act but if you love what you do you make it work and find a way. Kickstarter helps that process by allowing us to offer more to the fans, which is something we love to be able to do.

Every album you make comes with risks. Once the studio time is booked you've gotta make sure you've got everything written, make sure you can get a considerable chunk of time off from your day job, make sure your all well practiced and rehearsed among other things so its a big undertaking and commitment. Then once the record is made there's deadlines for everything, booking an album launch event, receiving new merchandise in time, hitting PR deadlines etc and all the work involved in achieving those deadlines is done by us in the small amount of free time we have outside of our busy lives and day jobs. its challenging and its hard but we all love it. Nothing that's easy is worth having so we enjoy putting in the work and seeing it all come together when its complete.
