Eight years into what has been a whirlwind career for the Orange County natives, Project 86 are returning to their roots, releasing their fourth studio album entitled, “Songs to Burn Your Bridges By,” June 1, 2004 on Tooth & Nail Records. The band, begun in early 1996 as young musicians bonding in their common musical interests and personal beliefs, was almost immediately a hit, garnering label interest not only in California, but also as far north as Seattle, Washington, where Tooth & Nail owner Brandon Ebel recognized and signed the group in 1998.

From that point, Tooth & Nail hosted Project 86’s successful premiere self-titled album (1996), and followed it with their hit sophomore release, “Drawing Black Lines.” (2000) which also brought attention from major labels such as Atlantic Records, who eventually licensed “Drawing Black Lines” as a joint effort with Tooth & Nail. Their third album, “Truthless Heroes,” a darker, follow-up to their previous effort, came next. Though with the timing of it’s release, in 2002, as record companies were struggling, and paying little attention to actual new artist development, Project 86 seemed far from a priority for Atlantic. In 2003 the band parted ways not only with both record labels, but with their management company as well.

From there the band worked independently, gaining new management (Zambooie Artists Management), beginning their own production company, “Team Black Recordings,” and started recording a new record themselves, eventually persuading Matt Hyde (Slayer, No Doubt) to join them in their efforts. Seeming more like an evolution from “Drawing Black Lines” than the ominous direction “Truthless Heroes” took, Ebel recognized the transformation as a welcome change. And from there the band and label began talks, first in healing their relationship and joining forces for the upcoming project
