Latest Project 86 News
Below is our complete Project 86 news coverage, including columns and articles pertaining to the band. Some articles listed may be indirectly related, such as side projects of the band members, etc.
Project 86 has premiered a new song called “Genosha” today, which is being hosted by Revolvermag.com (also available below).
The track is featured on the bands upcoming ninth studio album, "Knives To The Future," due out on November 11th via Team Black Recordings. The record is currently available for pre-order at this location.
"Genosha" is one of the most hectic and emotionally vulnerable songs I have ever been a part of with this band,” states frontman Andrew Schwab. “It's one that does not relent until it's finished with you. Lyrically, it explores the empowering emotions which come from the realization that when abuse in a relationship occurs, the victim is not to blame. If you have been wounded by another, there is great freedom in realizing that it was not your fault.”

Project 86 will make its monumental return with a new album titled "Knives To The Future," which is scheduled for release on November 11th via Team Black Recordings.
Following a successful Indiegogo campaign, raising nearly double the band's initial goal, Project 86 emerged from the studio with this ninth studio album, which picks up where the 2012 record "Wait For The Siren" ended.
"This record is a continuation thematically of where we left off with Wait for the Siren,” says vocalist Andrew Schwab. “It tells the story of a soldier post-battle who has forgotten where he came from or who he is. The album is about a search for truth and destiny through rediscovering secrets hidden in your past. Sonically it is heavy, deeply emotional, desperate, and very personal. I'm very proud of what has been accomplished both with the fans and the music in this recent chapter."
The album's track listing is as follows:
2. Spirit of Shiloh
3. Acolyte March
4. Knives to the Future
5. Son of Flame
6. Captive Bolt Pistol
9. Pale Rider
10. Valley of Cannons
11. White Capstone
12. Oculus More...

The band will release their new album "Rival Factions" through Tooth & Nail on June 19th.
Tooth and Nail recording artists PROJECT 86 are now counting down the days to an extremely busy summer. Having just finished their sixth full-length album, Rival Factions which is slated for release on June 19th, the Orange County residents will spend the entire summer on the road playing to their fan base that is ten years strong, but sure to enlist many more along the way (dates below).
Project 86 will be heading to Chicago to join the Tooth and Nail Tour on June 5th alongside the likes of MxPx, Sullivan and The Classic Crime for a handful of dates. Then, Project 86 will headline their own tour with Showbread, Inhale/Exhale and Chasing Victory. Kicking off at Cincinnati's The Underground on June 16th, the Rival Factions tour will make its way as far east as Buffalo, NY, head south for two shows in North Carolina and then head back westward to close out the tour with a hometown show at Anaheim's House of Blues on July 6th.
From the Cure-ish swirl of "Old Wave" to the minor key stomp of "Death Before Dishonor" to the punk brashness of "Light 'Em Up", Rival Factions is an album that moves Project 86 out of the metal category and into mainstream rock. "This is the first album that we highlighted the keyboards," vocalist Andrew Schwab says. "Other than that, we haven't really evolved at all. We were always on the fringes of the different styles of rock. That afforded us the ability to evolve naturally into what we are. We have always existed in this space that doesn't sit with a particular genre or group, which wasn't necessarily intentional, but has been a blessing nonetheless."
