Blending a vast array of influences to create some of Chicago’s best new rock, June’s Arrival deliver a great time to their devoted fans. You’ll hear danceable melodic rock, groovy modern rock with a classic bent, or straight ahead smashy riff rock.

Biography

June's Arrival formed three years ago, and from the beginning it's path was clearly distinguished from most Chicago bands. Within months, June's Arrival had a steady following of highly dedicated fans and was offered opportunities to play Chicago's premier rock venues. The fans have remained intensely loyal and the fanbase has only grown-- so have the venues. June's Arrival is a success because lots of people believe in us.

June's Arrival's members have widely varying influences, musically. Singer Eric Bleile and drummer Anom Lane prefer modern and alternative rock, bassist Luke Lin enjoys an eclectic mix of music from the past 4 decades with an emphasis on film soundtracks, and guitarist Michael Young thinks mainstream rock records stopped being great in 1976. June's Arrival's music is the result of a negotiation process of trying to integrate and satisfy each member's aesthetics.

The original music of June's Arrival resonates with people because the band does not sugar coat life. We're not afraid to talk about the issues that can make life most difficult and disappointing-- but our music advocates the viewpoint of empowering one's self by making peace with life and moving on. "Conquer" and "Change" best personify this characteristic.

June's Arrival brings an addictively positive energy to the stage-- bring us baggage-laden modern people, and we will turn them into raving rock n' roll lunatics.

Lyrics

Conquer

Written By: June's Arrival

Well here I come down the path
I dubb myself the chosen one
I pick my tracks; I face the path
Now I am song unsung
long since gone
The feeling is rising
Step towards the fire
The fire wins

Now simple things have come and gone
I question I'm still the chosen one
I'm not the last; I will surpass
Now I am here to stay all the night
What question will find the right
Not to lie but to find to find my right

Well it's all the same these days
And I find myself drifting away
Dripping with words
I embrace myself
And I conquer my fear

Here I come down the path
I've dubbed myself the chose one
I'm not the last; I will surpass
Now I am here to stay all the night
What question will find the right
Not to lie but to find to find my right

Well it's all the same these days
And I find myself drifting away
Dripping with words
I embrace myself
And I conquer my fear

Out Of Touch

Written By: June's Arrival

Separate ways, we've found
Lost in this haze, you know I've found
Out Of Touch and out of mind
Complicated this you have I find

She's far away, still mesmorized I'm
Earning the day, I find my way inside
Out Of Touch and out of mind
Complicated this you have I find
Out Of Touch and out of mind
Complicated this you have I find

Take me away
Show me why
Take me away
Show me what it feels like

Separate ways, we've found
Lost in this haze, you know I've found
Out Of Touch and out of mind
Complicated this you have I find
Out Of Touch and out of mind
Complicated this you have I find

Take me away
Show me why
Take me away
Show me what it feels like
Take me away
Show me why
Take me away
Show me
Tell me

Tell me why do I still feel
Because I'd drop it all just you have you here
Vivid as I remember,
darling if you are
'Cause I'd drop it all,
just to have you now

Separate ways, we've found
Lost in this haze, you know I've found
Out Of Touch and out of mind
Complicated this you have I find

Take me away
Show me why
Take me away
Show me what it feels like
Take me away
Show me why
Take me away
Show me
Tell me

Change

Written By: June's Arrival

It's been a while now since I've made the right move
But I've been forced to a corner
The right turn looked so clear
Cause there's no mistakes on this one
'Cause this one was error free

Upward bound I found myself now
Since I made the right move
Up the stairs up on to the roof now
I'm here and I have no fear
I'm all in on this one
'Cause this choice was made for me

I'm all in on this one
It's been a while now
And from this distance
I have learned how

Pressures not beating me down now
Since I made the right move
The sun has begun to shine
And the wind really ain't that cool
I'm high on myself and I found
this choice was made for me

I'm all in on this one
It's been a while now
And from this distance
I have learned how
I'm all in on this one
For as far as one can see
And from this distance
It can only be

I'm all in on this one
I'm all in on this one
I'm all in on this one
"cause I'm all in
