After months of preparations, we’re proud to announce that the 360° HEXPERIENCE has finally opened on Indiegogo! Please check it out here: https://igg.me/at/belzebubs.
In short, we’re looking for a minimum of 22 000 euros to produce this 360° mini-gig of 2–3 songs, but there’s a ton of stretch goals available if we happen to gather more! The campaign is open until the 31. of August, and if we DO get this funded, the show will be ready between October–December this year (so either for Halloween or Hexmas). If we DON’T get this funded, you’ll get to keep your money, fair and square.
We have six different perks available, ranging from just the streaming access to more exciting stuff, like behind-the-scenes material and the option to participate in the actual video by voting & commenting or being part of the voice cast, for example. The limited high-end perks make YOU part of the show as either a hand-drawn cartoon character (appearing on the screen behind the band) or as a fully animated 3D character right up front. ALL supporters will be credited in the end of the show, though.
Once done, the 360° Hexperience can be viewed on a computer, tablet, smart phone or VR goggles, the latter providing the most immersive experience, of course.
Thanks for your time and support once again. We really hope we get this funded so we can see all you guys in our monochromatic realm. But it’s not in our hands anymore…If you have the chance, please spread the Indiegogo page and invite your friends. There’s no capacity limit nor need to social distance on this gig!
Take care, all best, hail Satan.
Hi guys, and sorry for the hiatus! We’re pleased to say that we’ve finally wrapped up our campaign video for the Belzebubs 360° Hexperience, which means we’ll be able to launch our Indiegogo campaign TOMORROW, Thursday the 30th at 21 CET. 🔥🤘🔥
So that’s 22:00 Helsinki, 21:00 Berlin, 15:00 New York, 12:00 Los Angeles, you get the idea.
Getting this beast ready for launch has taken more time than estimated, but the good news is that this project is looking more amazing by the minute. We’ve also been able to hack down some of the debt we have, meaning that we’d be able to push this out for you guys with a smaller amount of money than we originally expected! 🙏 (Thanks from the bottom of our blastbeating hearts to all of you who helped out with the shirt campaign. We’ll let you know the final amount once we hear it from Backstage Rock Shop.)
Just as a heads up, the 360° Hexperience perks include six different packages ranging between 10 to 500 €, from just the streaming access to more exciting stuff, like behind-the-scenes material and the option to participate in the actual video by voting & commenting or being part of the voice cast, for example. The limited high-end perks make you part of the show as either a hand-drawn cartoon character (appearing on the screen behind the band) or as a fully animated 3D character right up front. But more info tomorrow!
Damn, it felt good to draw these guys again. Looking forward to getting back on track with the comics, too. See you soon. 🤘
You bite them you buy them.
Sorry for the long hiatus, belzebuddies, we’ve been hard at work figuring out how to remedy our financial situation. As most of you know, our European tour was cancelled due to the virus outbreak, leaving us 50 000 euros in debt from all the hefty pre-production costs. Many of you have extended a helping hand already, asking how and where you can donate (you’re way too awesome), but we’ve wanted to offer something in return. Hence we have a two-part campaign in the works!
1. Backstage Rock Shop has generously set up an exclusive shirt campaign in which we’ll get 100% of the profits. 🔥 You’ll find the options for the “Gigs That Never Were” tour shirt (and finally, some artprints!) on backstagerockshop.com/belzebubs. This campaign ends on the 21st of June.
2. We also have an Indiegogo campaign coming up for something we’re quite hexcited about, the Belzebubs 360 Hexperience. Please check out the pre-launch page if you’re interested and sign up for the updates, you’ll be the first to know when the campaign is online!
In conclusion, we wish to thank you all from the bottom of our blast-beating black hearts. All support is warmly welcome, whether it’s financial or simply spreading the news online! Cheers, everyone, you rule. See you soon with more comics, can’t wait to get back on track with those.
Stay safe, stay healthy, hail Satan.
Jokes aside, the tour is indeed off (to no surprise).
We were really looking forward to rocking Hellfest, Tuska, Provinssi, Rock Fest Barcelona, Ilosaari, Wacken and Summer Breeze this summer, but here we are…hopefully we’ll have a slot in each festival’s lineup in 2021.
However, the current situation is indeed stressful. We’ve invested quite a bit of time and money to the pre-production/planning of our special show, all of which were to be paid with the concert fees. We won’t go into detail how the shows are done (that’ll remain a surprise) but as you know, Belzebubs is not your average band (yes, there’s tons of animation involved)…Now that the gigs won’t happen, we’re looking at a 50 000 euro debt, due in a couple of months. Naturally this is a financial disaster to Belzebubs, as we weren’t expecting to make any money off the first tour anyhow. We were barely going to cover the pre-production costs, crew, materials, flights, accommodation, etc. in the first place.
That’s the status quo in a nutshell.
So bare with us, we’ve been figuring out a way to claw ourselves back from this situation, but there seem to be a lot of things limiting our plans at the moment; time, money, contracts, etc. Seems quite fitting that the minute Belzebubs is getting its shit together, a global pandemic sets loose. 😅But we won’t yield, and hope to see you all very soon.
Take care, stay safe, wash your hooves and remember to satanise the house. 🤘
Smells like teen spirit.
Heads up! We’ve updated our official store at Backstage Rock Shop with new shirts, a mug, and a refill of our Stygian Comfort tea! And while we remember: we’ve seen quite a few shirt designs in the Belzebubs strips, but is there one you’d want to see made for real?
Thanks for your support!
I don’t know about you, but I could sure do with a night out in good company right now, a nice bottle of red and a hearty meal and… 🤤 *incomprehensible drooling*
Compliments are hard.
Anyone else have jerks for pets?
Happy Friday the 13th, everyone. Hope you’re doing ok.
The Day of Reckoning.
No rest for the wicked.
Happy Valentine’s Day then 🖤
Everyone needs some alone time.
Cheeses Christ, Sløth…
What Obesyx said. We can’t wait to come over to Ilosaari next July!
Cut the chit chat, Hubbath, let’s get down to business.
We’re happy to announce that we’ll be storming three festivals in Finland next summer, starting from Tuska in June! See you in HELLSINKI!
