Project 86

project_86Project 86 is an American Alternative rock/metal band from Orange County, California, USA. In 1998, they released its self-titled debut on BEC Recordings, a sublabel of Tooth & Nail Records. After releasing their second album, Drawing Black Lines (2000), the band was taken on by Atlantic Records. However, the promised re-release of Drawing Black Lines went from being a full-fledged reissue with new artwork and three new songs to nothing more than a bare bones repackaging of the exact same album.

At the outset of its career, they shared the stage with P.O.D. and Blindside on the Warriors Tour. Project, as the band is often referred to by its fans, has played mainstage at both Christian and secular festivals, and has shared the stage with other well known bands such as Queensrÿche, Linkin Park, Dead Poetic, Sevendust, Finger Eleven, etc. Also, influential rocker Marilyn Manson took interest in the band and had the song “P.S.”, originally released on Drawing Black Lines, added to the Blair Witch 2 soundtrack.
