In an effort to combat reduced revenue as the industry shifts, Australian prog-metal outfit Ne Obliviscaris have launched an interactive fan membership program to keep them on the road.

The Melbourne act aren’t strangers to the crowd-funding side of things, dominating a campaign in 2014 for a world tour that raised more than $86,000, smashing their asking figure of $40,000 in just 38 hours.

“We’re launching the most important thing we’ve ever done in our career and it addresses a problem in the industry that has been bugging us for a couple of years now,” Tim Charles said.

“Things need to change, not just for us, but for a lot of bands to able to keep doing this. No one pays for CDs any more.”
