Project 86 to Livestream Double-Album Concert Event March 1-2 in Nashville
Project 86 waved goodbye to the old and ushered in something much more ominous with their recent release of the OMNI double album. Now, they are gearing up to celebrate the release with a unique livestream event on March 1-2. In-person tickets sold out quickly, but fans can still enjoy this special event in a virtual setting (tickets available at Project86.com).“We wanted to create a multimedia experience that transcends the typical live show from a band. We view this event as another piece of world-building for the new material and content, while performing some of the classic P86 jams for one of the last times,” frontman Andrew Schwab says. “If you have ever seen the band play, this will be a much different animal. We have leveled up.”Schwab has stated the OMNI double album is a complete reinvention, going so far as re-branding his longstanding outfit as P86:OMNI.“It’s cyberpunk metal set in the OMNI-VERSE,” he explains.”It’s much more extreme than anything Project 86 ever released, and frankly, it has been so much fun to go to places I always wanted to go with building a world, creating a story and making heavier music.”The band will unveil an exclusive vinyl variant, t-shirt, and new music video for the song “Complete the Circle” at the event. All livestream ticket holders will be entered to win an OMNi Vinyl Box Set. The livestream willl be available to stream after the event for those who cannot attend night-of.
OMNI is meant to be more than a twenty-three-song double album. It is an immersive scifi/cyberpunk experience, exploring the ideas of transhumanism and AI in a spiritual context. With an accompanying book (coming mid-2024), and fan-driven Alternate Reality Game at Omnicorp.one, fans will find much to lose themselves in. To discover more visit Project86.com.
