PERSONA’s Second Studio Album!
 
We’re stepping it up a notch with our next album and we’d really appreciate your support!
 
 
We’re very excited about this new album because all the ideas, influences and inspiration accumulated since the release of the previous one will finally take shape! While maintaining our original sound and style, the new songs will be spiced up with some fresh and diverse elements, both instrumentally and vocally. Lyrics will be 100% personal and inspired by real life situations, each song being a fragment of the album concept. It would mean a lot to have you as our supporter!
 

Hello dear reader!

We are Persona, an alternative metal band from Tunisia (North Africa). In May 2015 we released a music video for our single “Blinded”, followed by our debut album “Elusive Reflections” in February 2016. As an independent band in a country where there are no festivals, labels, studios nor music producers for metal music, where we constantly struggle with the lack of venues and media support, it wasn’t an easy task to deal with all the steps an album production requires. But once we managed to finally get it out there, “Elusive Reflections” got such an amazing response from so many people all over the world, and we are extremely happy we haven’t let all the obstacles and setbacks stop us.

Many of you have been supporting us since our very beginning, and that’s the greatest motivation a band can have – dedicated and encouraging fans like you! We appreciate so much that you have shared this part of our journey with us, and now we invite you to participate in our next big step: OUR SECOND ALBUM!

We plan it to be a lot more adventurous and divergent than the previous one, but don’t worry, the core of our musical personality will still be there, only improved and enhanced. Like the first time, we will engage our creativity, inspiration and skills to the maximum, because we want to create something worthwhile and meaningful, something you will enjoy at least as much as you’ve enjoyed “Elusive Reflections”. We are also ready to finance this project to the extent of our possibilities, but since we’re still an independent band, unfortunately, this time our funds are limited. We’re afraid we won’t be able to achieve the quality we’re striving for and to realize some of our ideas without your help.
 

At this point, all the songs have been written (12 songs – over 60 min of music), some are still undergoing final corrections and changes, but that shouldn’t take too long. After the recording is finished, there will still be a lot to do and that’s when we’ll be counting on you! Here is how it looks like:

  • Our first goal of $3500 is meant to cover the expenses of recording, mixing and mastering.
  • If we reach $4500, we’ll be able to make physical copies (including artwork, pressing and printing of the CD).
  • If we reach $5500, we’ll be able to make a lyric video, get more creative with merch items and general visual aspect of the album.
  • And if we manage to reach $6500 we will have a possibility to make a real music video!

 


 

– If our goal of $3500 is achieved, to thank you for your participation, at the end of campaign you will get an exclusive, private link to listen to ONE of our NEW ALBUM songs, in DEMO version (audio), way before the release date! 

– If we reach $5500, at the end of campaign we will reveal a SECOND DEMO SONG through a private link to all of you who supported us! 

– If we reach $7500 or more, all extra money will be used for touring expenses in 2017 and 2018 – after many concerts here, we can’t wait to start playing outside of Tunisia!

If we don’t manage to reach our goal, we will do our best to produce this album until the end, but it won’t be easy with limited funds, and delays might be big.
