Wait for the Siren was an incredible experience from start to finish.
Our direct partnership with you allowed us to make the record we always dreamed of making. The songwriting process was groundbreaking for us, as a brand new energy was breathed into this band. The recording environment was incredibly satisfying, and we were able to collaborate with many of our long-time friends and peers-from Brian "Head" Welch of Korn/Love and Death, to Bruce Fitzhugh of Living Sacrifice, to Blake Martin of a Plea for Purging. The reception to the album was amazing to witness. Crowds at our shows swelled and both fans and critics alike gave the album rave reviews. Wait For the Siren garnered multiple #1 singles, including the smash-hit "Fall, Goliath, Fall,"-a song that delivered one of our most high-profile placements in the history of the band, as the basis for Jim Nantz's monologue during primetime of the opening rounds of the NCAA Basketball tournament.
We are truly proud of all that was accomplished...
So, we are more than excited to announce we are writing a new album as we speak. And we are upping the ante this time in every way. If Wait for the Siren proved anything to us, it is that the sky is the limit...
We learned a lot from our last project, and though we raised nearly $40,000.00 to produce the album, create artwork, press cd's, vinyl, print books, t-shirts, and mail everyone their orders worldwide, it was necessary for us to spend more than what we raised. In addition to producing the album/fulfilling your packages, we spent additional funds on publicity, marketing (including a music video), and a distribution team. Because we want to not only deliver the best album possible but do it on the best level possible we set our goal for this project at $50,000.00.
And there's more: Perhaps our favorite part of this last album cycle was our VIP acoustic performances. These sets were special because they presented the songs in a more personal way. So we will be recording four original, "unplugged" songs, in addition to the P86 album.
We have put together some great incentives that are meant to allow you to be a part of this project as much as possible; The greater your backing, the closer you will be to the process of making this record.
And as an added incentive, every backer of $40 and above will receive a digital copy of Andrew Schwab's first single from his brand new solo project (title TBA). You will be the first to hear this new music, as it will not be released to the public until later in the spring. You will receive the song as a special thank you for backing (again, $40 and above), as soon as the funding period of this project ends.
So, it's time for YOU friends of P86, to partner with us like never before. Join us in making another special P86 masterpiece.
Thank you, in advance, for being an integral part of this new project.
