Portugal’s hard rockers SCAR FOR LIFE have launched the Fundraising Campaign for their upcoming “Worlds Entwined” Tour 2015. Read more details below:
Ladies & Gentlemen, this is your shot. Get “Scar For Life” on World Tour – anywhere – anytime – Be the change, be the difference !
POWER TO THE PEOPLE – LET’S RISE UP AND TURN THE PAGE!
Our new album, “Worlds Entwined” has been out since the end of August 2014. After months of doing promotion and interviews we want to PLAY our songs FOR YOU – LIVE and somewhere near your hometown. Help us to get on tour!
Does €15000 seem a lot of money for you? It certainly does for us. We know how hard you have to work for your money and we don’t take that for granted. This goal will help cover moving this band forward – to play decent shows in decent venues. It’s important to us! We want to perform our music top notch without scaling down on equipment, stage size and stage show.
Our philosophy is: We want to give our fans a run for their money – We want them to go home after a show and say: HELL YES! For weeks to come. Wake up the next morning with a ring in your ear and still flashes in your eyes from the fireworks.
If by some miracle we exceed that goal, there is a lot of room to do those things better, for longer, and in more parts of the world. But we’ll talk about that bridge if we come to it. It’s ALL or NOTHING. If we don’t reach our goal, all pledges will be refunded!

About SCAR FOR LIFE:
Guitarist Alexandre Santos started his new venture SCAR FOR LIFE in 2008, creating songs from the most vitriolic, groovy assaults to soft acoustic pieces, embracing all the influences that make them emotional and powerful. With soulful rock singer Marco Resende and drummer / producer Daniel Cardoso (now in ANATHEMA), the debut album “SCAR FOR LIFE” was recorded at Ultra Sound System and Press Play Music Studios and released in 2008. After playing several shows and acoustic showcases around the country, a live album ‘Live & Acoustic” was released for a limited amount of time on digital stores. With their newest addition to the line up, bass player Sales, SCAR FOR LIFE returned to Ultra Sound studios in May 2010 to record the follow up album “IT ALL FADES AWAY”. The media reaction surpassed all expectations by considering “IT ALL FADES AWAY” Album Of The Year on Brazilian COLLECTOR’S ROOM Webzine, and on the top 10 Portuguese metal album of the year on several Webzines.
“3 MINUTE SILENCE”, the 3rd album of SCAR FOR LIFE, was recorded in the beginning of 2012 at Press Play Studio and released in September via INFEKTION RECORDS. This album, featuring the new line up additions João Colaço (ex-MORE THAN A THOUSAND) on drums, as well as guests such as violinist Anne Victorino d’Almeida, finnish singer Kari Vahakuopus (CATAMENIA) and British keyboarder Ged Rylands (ex-TEN) was by far the most ambitious work of the band, exploring a heavier, but yet more melodic side of SFL, adding a new layer to the band’s live performances. A video was filmed in Canada for the single ‘Old Man’ by director Dustin Warnock. 5 years into their career, in 2013, SCAR FOR LIFE released a compilation album entitled “RETROSPECTIVE” for free download on the official website featuring one new instrumental track. The new track (Retrospective) was again written and mixed by Alexandre Santos, featuring guest musicians Neil Fraser (TEN) and Neil Murray (WHITESNAKE, BLACK SABBATH). An accompanying video, directed again by Dustin Warnock, was released at the same time and SCAR FOR LIFE promoted the compilation with live performances in London and Portugal.
ALBUM / SINGLE
2013 was also the year for some major line up changes. Tëën Asty joined the band on bass guitar and in search for a singer the band confirmed in August that Rob Mancini (HOTWIRE, CRUSH) has joined SCAR FOR LIFE as their new lead vocalist after which the band immediately began writing for a new album.
SCAR FOR LIFE finished recording 12 new tracks for their fourth album “WORLDS ENTWINED” featuring a number of special guests such as Vinnie Appice (BLACK SABBATH, DIO), Neil Fraser (TEN, RAGE OF ANGELS), Michael Carlsson (LOVER UNDER COVER) and Anne Victorino d’Almeida in March 2014 and got promptly signed to ESCAPE MUSIC in the UK. The band’s new opus was mixed and mastered by Swedish producer Martin Kronlund at JM Recording Studio Sweden.
