Christian rock band Project 86 will unleash their latest album on Nov. 11

Christian rockers Project 86 will release their ninth studio album, “Knives to the Future,” on Nov. 11. The album, which marks the band’s follow-up to 2012’s “Wait for the Siren,” was funded by fans via an Indiegogo campaign. That pledge campaign raised $90,000 for the band’s new album, which is pretty great, considering the original goal was $50,000.

On the new album, Project 86 worked with producer and engineer Matt Mclellan (The Devil Wears Prada, Underoath, Norma Jean) and mixer Steve Evetts (Every Time I Die, The Dillinger Escape Plan).

“We had such an amazing experience from start to finish on the last record that we couldn’t wait to do it again,” frontman Andrew Schwab said in a statement. “Even more fans got involved this time and blew us away with their support. We have had backers coming in the studio participating in the process, singing gang vocals, Skyping with us, etc. It’s a fun and rewarding way to create and release new music.”

Schwab’s comrades in the studio included guitarist Darren King (the Overseer), bass player Cody Driggers (The Wedding) and drummer Ryan Wood (Seven Horns, Seven Eyes). “Knives to the Future” is currently available for pre-order on Project 86’s official website.
