Andrew Schwab of Project 86 talks books, Truthless Heroes and more.

Project 86 has been my favourite band for nearly 20 years. I can trace much of my love of music, writing, and even reading back to the day I first heard their music. So I'm honoured now to have singer Andrew Schwab on the Books Collide Podcast.

In this episode (part one) we discuss the origins of Andrews love of fiction, the books that inspired him during the writing of Truthless Heroes, as well as the production of that controversial album and the public persona of Andrew during that era of the band.

Dracula by Bram Stoker
Z for Zachariah by Robert C. O'Brien
It by Stephen King
1984 by George Orwell
