Project 86 Re-Release "Self Titled" 1998 Album

By in News | 12 Comments

Andrew Schwab and Project 86 have just made their debut 1998 “Self Titled” album available once again for streaming/digital purchase. The album has been offline for a number of years probably due to some offense with the song “Independence?”. This album put the Orange County, CA. band on the map in 1998 and by the time of “Drawing Black Lines” in 2000, this band’s mark was clearly felt. I was lucky enough to witness the band’s first few shows back when Ethan Luck was in the band and they had a very heavy, aggressive, RATM influence. Those shows were nothing short of explosive. Heck I even approached them as an 18 year old to try and get them to sign with Slingshot Records (Screaming Giant), haha. Oh what fun that would have been, am I right? Grab Project 86 “Self Titled” now wherever you find quality digital music.

While Project only got better after this, there’s an intensity that raw power on their debut album that I dig. It’s only a shame they didn’t put Numb on the album, as it’s a great song.

Lame that the label (Capital CMG?) removed it, glad it’s back.
