What a year it's been!
WHAT LIES AHEAD has been continuing to carve its own path throughout the last several months. We've been building upon many musical bonds and sharing stages with some of the best local artists in the Chicagoland scene!
Since our last news post, we have had an excellent run of shows through the summer months. In August, we hosted the first ever BANDFAM UNITED bash at Penny Road Pub, which was a rousing success! We brought our brothers in BURY YOUR PAST and ON MY SIX with us, we handed out limited edition shirts commemorating the occasion, and everyone had a blast.
Tonight, we will be back at Cairo Ale House in West Chicago (one of our favorite hometown venues), and on Sunday, we will be setting another milestone as WHAT LIES AHEAD opens up the night for POWERMAN5000 at The Forge in Joliet!
This will be the biggest opportunity we've had yet! Come out to see our upgraded merch booth and hear a setlist of some of our best material.
Speaking of setlists... Our appearance tonight at Cairo Ale House will be just as special: We're going to let the fans decide what they want to hear! We tend to craft our sets carefully for each show, but we have discovered that means some songs in our catalog have had rarer live performances than others. So come on out and challenge us to dust off some of our lesser-heard songs like LEADING THE BLIND, RULE OF TWO, or even THE VAXX.
We've still got some announcements and other tricks up our sleeve as we prepare to bring a close to the year, so be sure to keep an eye on our social media next week...
As always, thank you for making this musical journey as amazing as it is.
