We (Djevara) have started working on a new album. In the DIY spirit, we’re asking our fans for support to make sure it’s our best ever.
Incredibly, in 2014 it’ll have been ten years since we released our debut album “God Is White” (now long sold out). We raised all the funds from our fanbase long before “crowdfunding” became a word everyone recognised, upon a wave of excitement from radio play and tours across the UK while still naive, “wet-behind-the-ears” students. It was a wonderful time, and we’ve been through so much since then and would not have imagined where we are today as artists. It seems a fitting time to try to release our next album, number four, which we’re pretty confident could be our best ever; we’re playing the shows of our lives, more “together” as a band than we have felt since then and writing some of the most exciting music we’ve ever done whilst staying true to the ideals and essences of makes up Djevara.
In order to realize this record properly, we’re asking again for support from our family, friends and fans. This will help us pay for studio and production time, recording, mastering, manufacture, and make sure we make the best possible record for our tenth anniversary release.
In their manifesto, Kickstarter articulate that this kind of crowdsourcing project allows people to enable and become an integral part of the creation of the art they want to see in the world. I think that’s such a beautiful idea; supporters and fans actually willing the art into being from the beginning with their direct support. I just don’t believe that ONLY art that is commercially viable should be able to exist. I don’t want to live in a world like that, and I’m glad that more people are recognizing that you don’t have to be a millionaire to be a patron of the arts.

Thanks so much to all of you who’ve been along for the journey so far; the best is yet to come.
IMPORTANT: if you want to support us BUT for whatever reason you don’t want to register on Kickstarter process (preferred) or can’t use one of the available credit cards, you can send a paypal payment/transfer over to us at “firstname.lastname@example.org” (GENIN RECORDS) and we’ll do it for you as part of a group donation. Remember to include the reward you want! (nb you can not get a “limited” reward using this method)
Anté, Malc, Tose) in London, the team which has been ripping it up across Europe for the first three weeks of the tour. It’s going to be a very special night with a couple of surprises and exclusives (of course, do we ever let ya down?). I don’t even need to mention how awesome EARTHMASS are. We’re also gonna be treated to a special, short, sweet set from LEEVIL.
After another fantastic night, it’s become apparent that there’s been a huge increase in the percentage of our female audience over the last 3/4 years (from almost zero 6/7 years ago, pretty much). This is one of the most welcome and fantastic developments of which I’m most proud – and is so exciting. Being rooted in genres that are often almost exclusively male-dominated and male-oriented, I remember in the early days being frustrated that the scene lacked the influence and presence of representatives of over half the world population. Thank you so much for joining us. So: here’s to you all – our beautiful mothers, sisters, daughters, wives, lovers, aunts, nieces… Real hardcore is made with love. ^Anté xXx
