NAnd... it happened... Dear Friends! After many months of discussing all the pros and cons, we decided to set up a profile on Patronite.pl! Did we do right? It remains to be seen, but we are very optimistic now!
Although the idea of crowdfunding is not new to us, Patronite is a completely new experience for us. We have been thinking about this option for a long time but each time number of minuses exceeded (in our opinion) number of pluses. The fact is, however, that many of you have been persuading us to try it for a long time. So we finally got convinced...
Why? Well - there is no definite answer to this question. However, we began to realize that without additional support, sooner or later we would have to stop or at least slow down the pace of our activities. Unfortunately, most of the time creating music in Poland, especially metal music, not only does not involve any financial profits but even requires constant "adding to the business". And - of course - we've been doing it for years (some of us for over twenty) because it's the only way we can do what we love - being on stage, making music and playing for you. However, costs of all of this are increasing more and more - especially recently - and this case effectively inhibits any activity and has caused many really good and promising bands to disappear from the scene forever.
We are not going to disappear or slow down. We want to continue to meet you at concerts, record new albums and music videos, create new material - that is, give you what you ask us for and what you are waiting for. Unfortunately, all this costs a lot. Only a few people know (except musicians of course) that for years each concert or concert tour has been a big expense for the band. Starting from fees for the club where you play, through renting a bus, fuel and often also accommodation. Sometimes some of these things are provided by the organizer - especially in the case of festivals - but usually these costs are covered by bands. Very often we have to pay extra here again. Of course, these are not all financial burdens. Added to this are huge costs of recording and releasing albums and also (which is also often forgotten) the prices of the equipment we play on (these amounts cannot even be calculated).
As you can see, it's not easy. Which of course doesn't mean we're going to give up or leave what we love! We've come too far and there's no such option! However, with your help it will be a little easier for us - and that's a lot. We thank you and bow to you for all support we have received from you so far. You know how much we've been able to do so far. And we still have many plans and ideas... So, if you would like to help us in their implementation - we encourage you to support us using the Patronite platform! Especially since our most important goal right now is to record a third album! Yes, yes... We finally said it out loud... Fame to all of you!
