Friend of Project 86,
We wanted to to check in with you as we round the final turn on phase one of The Final Chapter...
WE ARE SET TO BEGIN MIXING LP1 LATER THIS WEEK. Beau Burchell is at the helm. We will be posting updates regularly on The Final Chapter Campaign Patreon. If you want to hear it all come together in real-time, subscribe. If you want to preview the music, subscribe. We also have over 80 episodes of podcasts and hours of in-studio content available right now.
LP2 IS CURRENTLY BEING WRITTEN. We estimate we will be working on these songs until the end of July, to mix in August.
THE PROJECT 86 HISTORY BOOK IS 145,000 WORDS INTO THE FIRST DRAFT AND COUNTING. Much more needs to be done, but it's coming together in entertaining fashion.
ALL STRETCH GOALS HAVE BEEN MET WITH ONE CAVEAT: INFLATION AND THE INEVITABILITY OF THE CREATIVE PROCESS HAVE CAUSED EXPENSES ON EVERYTHING TO GO THROUGH THE ROOF. Everything always takes longer than you think and costs more than you estimate. We planned for this. But we didn't plan for the price of gas, supply chain issues, inflation, and the like.
SO, SUPPORT IS STILL VERY MUCH NEEDED. A double album, two books, a visual album, and all the content contained on the Patreon is so much to take on. We know you are all stretched thin, as well. But if you are looking for a worthwhile "cause" to get behind this week or month, pre-order a shirt, a vinyl, CD, or a bundle. Add to your existing order, or upgrade to a Double CD/Vinyl.
ONCE WE WRAP PRODUCTION ON THE MUSIC, WE WILL CLOSE PREORDERS. This time is coming soon, in a matter of weeks. Get your preorders in now.
THANK YOU. For the trust, sacrifice, and vehement support. WE CANNOT DO ANY OF THIS WITHOUT YOU.
