After a 25-year hiatus, Obliveon is back and ready to release their highly anticipated new album. But they can’t do it without your help.
We are excited to announce the launch of Obliveon’s Kickstarter campaign, where you can be a part of bringing this groundbreaking new album to life.

Over the past decade, we have been working intermittently on this album, facing various obstacles along the way – as we’re sure you can relate to. Nonetheless, we have produced a wealth of songs and have narrowed them down to our top 20 picks. Our ultimate aim is to create a new album comprising 12 to 14 tracks.
Our progress thus far includes pre-production for all 20 songs being complete. We have also completed lyrics for 75% of the songs. Currently, we are recording vocal tracks, which will soon be added to the pre-production. Our drummer Alain is actively practicing and preparing for tracking at Wild Studio in October 2023.
If all goes according to plan, we will begin recording the album in the first week of October 2023. We estimate that mixing and mastering will take place between December 2023 and March 2024, following which we will release the album to our loyal kickstarter supporters in advance in April or May 2024. We plan on launching the album with a show, which should be around May or June 2024.

Do you have a record label supporting you or are you independent?
Recording, compiling, and distributing this album is entirely our responsibility, as we are doing it without any support from a label. While it does provide us with the freedom to make creative decisions and have complete control, it also means that the workload and pressure on our end are much higher than usual. Releasing an album independently has its own set of advantages and disadvantages. However, we are confident that with Obliveon’s two-decade experience in the music industry and the unwavering support of our enthusiastic fans worldwide, we can successfully accomplish this project and make it the highlight of our musical journey.
What is Kickstarter
Kickstarter is a crowdfunding platform that allows creators to bring their ideas to life with the help of a community of backers. Here’s how it works:
- Creator sets up a campaign: A creator sets up a campaign on Kickstarter, which includes a description of their project, a funding goal, and a timeline.
- Backers pledge: People who are interested in the project can become backers by pledging money towards the project. Backers can choose from different levels of support, each with its own reward.
- Funding goal must be met: The creator sets a funding goal, which is the minimum amount of money needed to bring the project to life. If the project does not meet its funding goal by the end of the campaign, no money changes hands.
- Campaign ends: The campaign runs for a set amount of time, typically 30 days. If the project meets its funding goal by the end of the campaign, the creator receives the pledged funds minus a fee taken by Kickstarter. If the project does not meet its funding goal, no money changes hands.
- Project is created: If the project meets its funding goal, the creator can use the funds to bring their project to life. Backers receive their rewards as promised, and the creator is responsible for fulfilling all the rewards and delivering the project.
Overall, Kickstarter serves as a way for creators to bring their ideas to life with the support of a community of backers who are excited about their project. It allows people to fund ideas they believe in and help bring new and innovative projects to the world.
