A Valediction will be the Obscura's first album to feature their new-meets-old lineup of guitarist and vocalist Steffen Kummerer, former members now rejoined guitarist Christian Münzner and bassist Jeroen Paul Thesseling, and new drummer David Diepold (Cognizance).

"A Valediction unfolds Obscura in its purest form and showcases the band at new heights and offers immediacy with a rather personal touch," said Kummerer. "We cannot wait to perform this album on stage and celebrate each and every song live with our loyal fans around the globe. This record goes to eleven, so watch out for the first single dropping in July and worldwide tour dates to be announced soon."

The new album will also feature Soilwork vocalist Björn "Speed" Strid on the track "When Stars Collide". Check out the artwork below.
