The best kept secret in music


#28. Mandatory Option ~ Motaba

February 2007 -


We are currently making demos to pass out at our shows, and when we are done with school this semester we will be trying to make our first ep or lp.



If there is one band that music lovers should be looking into, it should be Mandatory Option. Hailing from Schaumburg, Illinois, a northwest suburb of Chicago, the band has started to become a well known name around their area. Hoping to break through to a bigger fan base, the band has recently played in ConcertsFirst's Battle of the Bands at the Congress Theater in Chicago. The band has also played at the Rave in Milwaukee, Wisconsin where they played the side stage opening for Atreyu. They are now planning to play there February 29th for the Angels & Airwaves show. The band has fused many styles of rock together to create the ultimate rock band. Many listening find the music to sound similar to a variety of other bands that they admire or listen to regularly. The goal of the band is to make great music that fans and listeners can enjoy all the time. Punk, metal, funk, alternative, and hard rock are just some of the styles the band incorporates into their music. Creating new music regularly has helped the band plan out many concerts in hope to search for their big break.
