Tim Charles comments on the video: "Our live show is to us is such a vital part of what we do. That chance to really feel the connection between you and the audience through the music is something so special. It's what we live for. When performing in Montreal last October we had the chance to film the show and are pleased to release this live video of two songs - Libera Pt 1/Urn Pt 2. We are excited to get back on the road playing here in Australia in a couple weeks time alongside some amazing bands for what is going to be our biggest ever headline shows anywhere in the world, before heading back to Europe for a festival tour in June as well. We hope you enjoy the video and that we see you at a live show sometime soon!"

ABOUT NE OBLIVISCARIS
Founded in Melbourne in 2003, Ne Obliviscaris took the inspiration for their name from the proud motto of Clan Campbell based in Argyll, Scotland, which means "forget not".
From the start, this collective of exceptional musicians made it clear that they did not intend to follow any trends or walk on well-trodden paths. Their first demo, 'The Aurora Veil' (2007) had a massive impact in the metal underground far beyond the fifth continent and their debut full-length 'Portal of I' (2012) reached the mainstream music press, which praised their unique array of influences and characteristic virtuoso violin.
Their second album 'Citadel' (2014) added avant-garde approaches including jazz, flamenco, progressive rock, and many other wide-ranged influences to their solid metal base.
On 2017’s Urn, Ne Obliviscaris have honed and re-balanced the key elements of their unique sound to a razor sharp musical edge. The dynamic entwining of fierce growls and emotive clean vocals, the contrast between devastatingly intricate guitar riffs and thundering drums against an unleashed violin and gorgeous string parts as well as the perfect blending of epic progressive and intense extreme metal forms of expression are all marking a new peak in the steep rise of the band. Urn has taken Ne Obliviscaris to the next level. Outstanding musicianship meets excellent songwriting and a firework of brilliant ideas.
Parallel to their success on a critical level and with an ever-growing host of die-hard fans, the band have increased their reputation as an excellent live act with extensive touring literally around the globe. The financial base for this was laid by their ground-breaking use of modern day crowd-funding campaigns. This includes an ongoing Patreon membership scheme under the moniker The Ne Obluminati, which is revolutionising the relationship between band and fans by using the ancient concept of patronage in today's democratic setting.
Urn is out now on Digipak CD, Gatefold Double-LP in various colours and on Cassette
