All 3-day and Sunday ticket holders now get access to our Thursday Preview Party! And to benefit our Chicago community, tickets are on sale now for Thursday with all proceeds going to Chicago Coalition for the Homeless and other TBA organizations.

Stay tuned for more info and announcements, including a second wave of Riot Fest Late Night shows which will be announced this Friday, August 20th.

Our fans deserve something amazing and we can’t wait to be together again. We’ve been working around the clock to make 2021 even more special—so that hopefully for one weekend, we can escape the world and find comfort in the music and people we hold dear.”

Northlane To Release New Live Album “Analog Future”

Northlane will release a new live album called “Analog Future” on March 16, via Rise/UNFD. The band said the following about the effort, which was recorded around the world:

“Since Northlane was born, we have never been able to capture the rawness, energy and sound of our live show in a recording, until now. ‘Analog Future’ is the product of a year on the road. We recorded every show in 2017 and collated 10 of our most memorable performances into a live album. Your favourite songs might sound a little different, and you might hear a few mistakes, but that’s live music in it’s realest form. ‘Analog Future’ is Northlane like you’ve never heard us on record before – aggressive, in your face, and right in the room with you.”

You can check out a live version of “Citizen,” along with the cover art and track listing below:

Northlane Premiere “Citizen” Music Video

Northlane have premiered a new video for their new song “Citizen.” The band’s new album will be released later this year.

Josh Smith commented:

“‘Citizen‘ is a song that was written about the First World police state and our willingness to live under the watch of those in power, for their means, while those who blow the lid on it suffer.

Writing this one was quite a mission, we went through five completely different sets of lyrics and the final incarnation of the song was the eighth revision. It took a lot of work but we are proud of it and beyond excited to share it with you all.”
