“It’s been 20 years since we released our only live album, “Still Life”. It’s time for an update! In January
we’ll be recording a series of shows in some of our favorite European cities. The best of these will be
included in a live album to be released in 2018. While we haven’t decided on the final set list yet we’re
planning on about a 2 hour set with as little overlap as possible with the “Still Life” album. Hope to see you all there!” – Jim Matheos / FATES WARNING

FATES WARNING Online:
20yrs. since your last live cd!? Holy shit!! Love you guys….You rule!! Nothing left to say!! Thanks for 30 yrs. of great memories for me. Ray, you’ve been a huge influence for me. Thank you so much!!
I don’t see a Chicago stop on your list. 🙁 You guys are just rockin. Thanks for all of the great music. I have been a fan since the first album. I am a drummer/bass player and the tunes have been a huge inspiration. Not to mention the awesome shows back in the day when you guys were touring with Sanctuary and others. We met at Peabody’s in Cleveland. Best part is that now I have my 15 year old son, who is a guitar player, jamming to Fates Warning!!
Can we expect a DVD /BLU-RAY release ?
I was disappointed I couldn’t make your Maryland show last June. You guys killed it in Springfield, VA a few years back! Theories of Flight is such a complete album from beginning to end! A live album is good news indeed 🙂 I knew it had been a while, but 20 years?!
Here’s to looking forward to a live album from one of the very best bands!!!
note: I probably got carried away with the exclamation points (but I can’t hide my enthusiasm towards a band I’ve followed for numerous years 😉
Ray has been one of my favorite vocalists and am looking for when you guys are coming to Chicago .
