Funny how, the other day, when I was talking to the lead singer of Obscura, he never mentioned this at all. It was funny to get this press release. I had one of those “What the fuck?” moments.
Obscura has announced their first ever demo collection will be called Illegimitation. It will be released independently by the band this March, according to the press release.
The collection will include ten, never, ever, ever heard tracks, including Obscura’s earliest recordings from 2003, and unreleased songs from the Cosmogenesis sessions of 2006.
There will also be “brand new cover songs with the newest line-up from 2011.”
Why the hell did dude not mention this? You’d think he’d wanna promote this? I asked him. What the fuck?
“This will be an independent release so we can give our fans the opportunity to participate in the project and offer special packages such as a livelong free entry to all Obscura shows, limited edition items, face to face lessons with our members, and tour used gear from the band,” says Obscura’s Steffen Kummerer.
