A War of Our Own is the fourth and final studio album by the Dutch progressive metal band Stream of Passion. Stream of Passion produced the album after leaving Napalm Records, financing it through crowdfunding website Indiegogo, and was their only album with the same line-up than its predecessor.
"I would rather not get very specific but let's say that we didn't think that we had the same ideas, and we didn't really think that they 'got' us that well".
Soon after, the band decided to fund their planned fourth album by way of fan donations, announcing a campaign through the crowdfunding website Indiegogo on July 16, 2013. Regarding the decision to fund the album this way, bass player Johan van Stratum commented:
"Times are changing, and so is the production of music and the way it is consumed. By taking things in their own hands, bands have more freedom and fans are enabled to support their favorites directly."
Donations to the campaign remained open for 3 months, with a target of raising EUR25,000 to produce the new album. The campaign eventually generated almost twice the target goal, finishing at EUR43,881. As a reward for their fans after surpassing their secondary goal of EUR40,000, the band recorded an acoustic set of songs from the upcoming album, exclusively for those who had contributed to the album's funding.
