Project 86 announces new album, Ohio concerts
Project 86 has announced plans to release their new album, Wait For the Siren, on Aug.21.
The album was funded through Kickstarter and promises to introduce a reinvented sound.
“For those who are acquainted with the band, or our previous work, the sound of this incarnation of P86 will be bit shocking, but in the best possible way,” lead singer Andrew Schwab said. “We captured the spirit that attracted people to our band long ago, with a whole new approach to the sonics.”
In addition to the band’s traditional rock sound, the album also features layers of celtic instrumentation on several tracks, including hammered dulcimer, mandolin, and Uilleann pipes.
“Part of the ‘getting back to roots’ theme on this record is the journey of self-discovery I embarked on while writing this record,” Schwab said. “I had to do some detective work, but I unearthed some secrets about my past. One of these secrets is that I have Irish ancestors who fought and died in the civil war as a part of the Irish Brigade. This inspired some of the military themes and celtic instrumentation on the record, which added a new level of epic emotion on some of the songs.”
The band will be in Ohio in August with the following concerts.
Aug. 1 – Findlay – The Catalyst Church
Aug. 10 – Dublin – Orange Friends Church
Aug. 12 – Canton – The Auricle
The album will be available for purchase at the August shows prior to the Aug. 21 release date.
