New Album by Chicago






As their new album NOW: CHICAGO XXXVI hits stores today (7/8), CHICAGO are excited to see the new video for the song "More Will Be Revealed" posted exclusively on Check out the video here: The new album was released in the U.S. via Frontiers Records and captures the band-adored by generations of fans since they formed in 1967-at their "rock with horns" best.

Currently on tour in Europe, the band return to American shores for a tour with REO Speedwagon July 31 through September 9, to be followed by more headlining dates on their own.
