The Afters- "Live On Forever" CD review

The Afters Release New Single "Live On Forever," Already Playing On 40 Stations Across AC and CHR Formats. 

Street Date: September 9th, 2016 (that's tomorrow) 

The Afters are not holding back on their newest release "Live on Forever."  In fact, they are bursting through new barriers.  This latest offering is filled with innovative, cutting edge, fresh pop music that is both epic and captivating.  The group has taken life experiences, spun them into something redemptive and uplifting, and captured that transformative experience into art.  Their first single "Live On Forever" impacted radio in the Fall of 2015 and hit the top 5. Their 2nd single "Battles" went for adds on 7/22 and is expected to be a hit.  The band heads out on a 45+ city tour with the Newsboys this Fall.

About The Afters

Texas-based, four-piece band The Afters were propelled into the national spotlight with their INO/Sony Music Label Group debut I Wish We All Could Win. The project spawned the swirling, melodic hit “Beautiful Love,” earning the band an enthusiastic following when the song was selected as the theme track for MTV’s “8th and Ocean.” “Beautiful Love” was also the most downloaded track of 2006 on the iTunes ® Inspirational charts and garnered the band an mtvU award. The Afters’ sophomore release Never Going Back To OK (INO/Columbia Records) debuted in the Top 50 on the Billboard Top 200, and proved to be a sensation on the silver screen with “Grey’s Anatomy” (ABC), “Dr. Phil,” “Army Wives” (Lifetime) and “Rachael Ray.” The band’s third record Light Up the Sky bolstered two No. 1 radio hits, as well as placements on “The Biggest Loser” (NBC) and “You Deserve It” (ABC). A slew of media including Rolling Stone,, E! News Live, TV Guide, Premiere Radio and more also picked up on covering The Afters. 

Sharing from my heart:

I'm a girl that likes all types of music from Country, Blue Grass, Christian, Pop, Classical and Rock so when I was asked to review The Afters newest album I jumped at the chance.  The song that spoke to me right away was "Battles" there's a line in it that says, "Your promise the hope that I cling to. My Rescue, my friend."  Such powerful words, I kept replaying it over and over. This band reminds me of U2 with their powerful ballads and guitar driven songs about faith. I don't want to give away too much about the newest CD, however I know it'll speak to you like it did to me.   On a side note, my 16 year old daughter told me she liked it and they remind her of Coldplay so that's a win in my book!
