Tap Into ‘WHAT AWAITS US: A Beyond Story’ The Documentary!

Real talk – the new NYHC documentary WHAT AWAITS US: A Beyond Story is a must-see film on so many levels! If you’re a fan of hardcore or music in general, you’re going to dig this story. Beyond’s lead singer Kevin Egan, with the help of his bandmates and friends from the NYHC scene, tells the story of this influential band. Future generations can look at WHAT AWAITS US: A Beyond Story to know what it was like to start a hardcore band in 1988. I found this film to be really inspiring because it made me realize how blessed I am to have been a part of Underground Culture at this stage of my life. I know for a fact that more people are going to get turned on to Beyond because their album No Longer At Ease has stood the test of time! Kevin and his crew started this band because of the passion they had for the music, and he put that same passion into creating WHAT AWAITS US: A Beyond Story. Peep the preview below, and you can also rent the film for a day as well.

Before there was ever a 108, Inside Out or Quicksand, there was Beyond. And in 1988, Tom Capone and I took our seven song demo recorded in our hometown of Holbrook, NY and brought it to Some Records on the Lower East Side of Manhattan. From there, everything took off.

WHAT AWAITS US, A Beyond Story is a documentary that, not only chronicles the history of the New York Hardcore band, Beyond, including our origin, our adventures and our demise after recording what is now considered an iconic record, but also depicts my journey from New York to California as I try to figure out where Beyond fits into my life today.

The film includes interviews with members of the band, along with interviews with members of Quicksand, Gorilla Biscuits, Youth of Today, Judge, Burn, Bold and more.

I hope you enjoy the film. It took a lot of work to complete it, but it was also a shitload of fun.
