Early this morning, Project 86 announced that a new PledgeMusic campaign for the band's 10th album will launch this coming Monday, June 27.
The band writes, "As many of you know, 2016 commemorates the 20th year of Project 86! We are still in awe and disbelief that we are here... We have been building up to something special all year, so here it is:
We are launching a campaign for our 10th studio release with PLEDGE MUSIC, THIS MONDAY, JUNE 27.
This campaign is more epic, more gigantic, than anything we have ever set out to do. Read on, friends, for the details:
I. 10 ORIGINAL SONGS, 5 INFLUENCE (cover) SONGS-IMMEDIATE ACCESS TO MUSIC.
You read that right. You will get the music as we make it over the months to come.
First, you will receive our version of BEASTIE BOYS' "SABOTAGE" for pledging to our campaign. Next, you will receive the rest of the INFLUENCE EP (5 songs total, including "Sabotage), digitally, September 1. Then, you will receive every original song-10 total-1 song per month at a time, digitally. Finally, CD and vinyl orders will receive physical copies as soon as we finish writing and recording. EVERYONE receives the music as quickly as we make it...
The new jams will be exactly what you love about P86: diverse, intense, heavy, emotional, and thought-provoking.
And because we are celebrating 20 years, we are giving a nod to some of the bands and songs that we have been influenced by over the years. Beastie Boys, Soundgarden, Fugazi, and more...These songs will not be our "impression" of the originals, but a unique take on songs infused with the P86 attitude.
II. TOUR DATES ARE COMING
As a part of this campaign, we are booking 15-20 tour dates across the nation with special packages available only through Pledgemusic. And because its our 20th year, our set will be composed ALMOST ENTIRELY OF OLD MATERIAL from the first two albums. Backstage, VIP, Dinners, singing onstage, and much more will be available. Ready yourself...
III. VINTAGE MERCHANDISE
The response to our vintage designs earlier this year has been unbelievable. So, when we launch the campaign, we are offering 3 VINTAGE P86 DESIGNS (Chimes, Truthless Heroes, and Songs to Burn Soldier), along with several VINTAGE POSTERS, WE CAUGHT YOU PLOTTING MURDER BOOK, and much more. We even have our FIRST PROMO PHOTO from 1997. We may even raffle off a stage banner or two...
IV. EXCLUSIVE EXPERIENCES
Some of you came to the studio last record to sing gang vocals. Others booked the band to play in their home town. Many joined us on Skype for a video chat. Some even had the band over for a Sushi Dinner (made by Schwab himself). These are the experiences that make a campaign like this special, memorable, life-changing. This time around we have songwriting sessions with the band, live shows where you write the entire setlist, and personalized disposable cameras filled with surprise photos shot by us. And of course, dinners, backstage passes, along with much, much more.
You have stuck by us for twenty years. We want to meet you, spend time with you. More than that, we want to bring you into our world. Imagine writing a song with the band that you give as a present to your loved ones? These are once-in-a-lifetime chances...
We are ready to destroy your speakers, to move your emotions, and give you more of what you have come to love and expect from P86...
The mayhem begins Monday!"
