Project 86 Launch Kickstarter For New Album, Acoustic EP

project86

Orange County hard rock band Project 86 turned to Kickstarter to raise the funds for their 2012 full-length, Wait For the Siren, and the effort was so successful that they are returning to the crowdfunding platform for their ninth studio album and an accompanying acoustic EP. The as-yet-untitled record has a projected release date of mid-2014, and you can see all the details and the rewards for pledging right here.

After raising more than double their goal on Wait For the Siren, the band have set their sights higher this time around, asking for $50,000 to fund the new album. Despite the lofty goal, the band seem confident that crowdfunding is the ideal route for their career. In an announcement video, which you can watch after the break, vocalist Andrew Schwab cites freedom from label influence and expectations and the ability to connect directly with fans as the reasons for returning to Kickstarter.

In addition to the new album and EP, Project 86 fans can also look forward to a solo effort from Schwab, and some backers will get an early look at his plans. Anyone who pledges more than $40 to the project will receive Schwab’s first solo single.
