Singled Out: Project 86

Project 86's new album, 'Wait For The Siren,' is being release today and to celebrate we asked frontman Andrew Schwab to tell us about the track "Fall, Goliath, Fall". Here is the story:

I had a specific vision for this song. I wanted a song that would harken visions of epic medieval battles, where families fight for land against evil oppressors.

The picture I had in my mind was a metaphor for the obstacles we face as artists in this industry, but I also wanted it to symbolize the plight of any underdog in any walk of life. We employed the use of a mandolin and a hammered dulcimer to give the song an epic, dramatic sound.

As I wrote with my friend Andrew Welch over Skype, and the song came together, I got chills, even before the vocals were written. I knew we had a special song. Then, when I actually laid down the vocals in the studio while recording the album version-which was the first time I had ever sang them-I almost came out of my skin with joy. It was one of those moments that justifies all the hard work and sleepless nights which come as a part of doing this for a living. It was one of those moments that only happens a few times in your whole career, and that is if you are lucky.

We have all faced insurmountable odds, or a seemingly undefeatable adversary at various points in our lives. When we encounter a Goliath, how will we respond? Will we cower in fear?

When he falls, we mount his head on a pike, high amidst our camp, as a monument to this event in our lives.

Hearing is believing. Now that you know the story behind the song, listen for yourself and learn more about the album right here!
