WHAT LIES AHEAD is an alternative metal/hard rock band based out of Elgin, Illinois, emphasizing killer grooves, strong hooks, introspective lyrics, catchy melodies, and true dynamics.
Formed just after the beginning of 2015, Jim (Guitar, Backing Vocals), Steve (Drums), and Q (Bass, Lead Vocals) have been churning out riffs, rhythms, and grit like three men possessed. Bringing their diverse influences together in a blend of old-school metal with a modern approach, they take a great deal of pride in the powerful sound they've crafted. After spending a year hard at work writing, rehearsing, and recording, they released their first effort on January 30th, 2016, titled THE DAMAGE LEFT IN YOUR WAKE.
Since that album's release, the band has written and gigged relentlessly, building strong bonds within the Chicagoland metal community and stepping onto stages both small and large. With the coming release of their second album, THE BIRTH OF TRAGEDY (Releasing on 6.16.2018) , the group is carrying their momentum forward into 2018 with an even deeper sense of focus.
Keep an eye open and an ear to the underground, and soon you'll see for yourself WHAT LIES AHEAD.
