Andrew Schwab and his band Project 86 have successfully funded their next album, meeting the goal of $40,000 set by the band. As a result of meeting the goal with almost three weeks left, they’ve set a new, “updated” goal of $60,000, so you can still back the project. The band posted on their Indiegogo page:

We are sending a powerful message to all in this industry…that P86, and our fans, are connected in something special via this campaign. As many of you know, we have been hard at work writing songs and preparing to enter the studio a little later this year.  This is where the fun begins!

It’s always nice to see artists get paid for their work in the most fair way possible. Big ups to the fans for making this a reality. And — regardless of the project — support some more of these to keep good artists writing good music.

Initially shunned by both believers and non-believers, they were fighting for their spot at the table, ultimately building a legacy that would go on to change the genre forever. HM presents an oral history of the beginning of Christian metal music, featuring Guardian, Tourniquet, Holy Soldier, Whitecross, and, of course, Stryper.
