THE WORLD WITHOUT US
Active since 2018, The World WIthout Us are a fairly new group, one that has been honing their skills and defining their sound in the NorthEast metal scene. Playing with many local heavy hitters, The World Without Us set themselves apart by cultivating a sound that blends genre-bending progressive death metal with modern strains of heavy, groovy, and often uplifting modern progressive metal.
Formed in 2019, Whitmore began establishing a brand of 2000’s Throw-Back Metalcore, and high energy performances.
The group’s desire to play, along with resonating live performances helped them grab foot holds in the Omaha local music scene. Though COVID delayed the ability to play their first show, when they did finally take stage, the reviews were exemplary.
In May of 2021, they self-released their debut demo “Identity”, and released a music video for their most popular song, “Sam Elliot Is Hotter Than Patrick Swayze In Roadhouse (Fight Me)” the following month. The lyrics were highly regarded with their value and messages, breaching issues of mental health, social stigma, and idealism.
Whitmore has also shared the stage with some of the larger Omaha acts, such as No Loss No Regret, The Tale Untold, and The Impulsive, and have been known to host private, invite-only house shows. They have also been invited to play large events such as the annual Movember Showcase, and the Annual Metal PJ Party, and warming the stage for national touring acts like Seven Kingdoms, Nodes of Ranvier, Norma Jean, Saltwound, Gideon, For The Fallen Dreams, Guerrilla Warfare, Orthodox, and The Last Ten Seconds of Life.
Chicago Hardcore Punk band
The south side of Chicago is pretty rough, especially Blue Island. It reeks of drunks, gun powder, crime, exhaust, and weed. For the sake of not confusing the reader, Chicago pedigrees NIGHTCAP wouldn’t have it any other way. When not making runs to Miska’s Liquor Emporium and the infamous Harold’s Chicken Shack, these Blue Island locals are sawing through their set all over the Midwest.
