After the August release of the critically-acclaimed album Wait For the Siren (which debuted at #7 on Billboard’s Hard Rock Chart, #118 overall, and peaked at #3 on the iTunes rock chart), P86 is celebrating their #1 single, “Fall, Goliath, Fall,” which topped the Billboard Christian rock chart for 3 consecutive weeks. With successful song features on Revolver, AP, Noisecreep, Loudwire, Alternative Press, Guitar World, etc., and having just wrapped a busy summer tour run (which included stops at Kingdom Bound, Uprise Festival, Soulfest, Spirit West Coast, Purple Door, Lifest, Joshua Fest, Creation East and West, Jesus Fest, etc.), the guys are preparing to launch a run of special holiday shows this fall/winter. P86 is currently working on some new Christmas music as a follow up to 2008’s This Time of Year EP, and the band is excited to have some new offerings to play for fans this holiday season.
