    Formed in 2000 by four Starbucks employees in Mesquite, TX, the Afters are an alternative CCM rock outfit originally known as Blisse. Under the name Blisse, (former) members Marc Dodd (drums), Matt Fuqua (guitar and vocals), Josh Havens (vocals and guitar), and (former) Brad Wigg (bass and vocals) released an EP and an album (2001's When the World Is Wonderful) before finding out that there was another Blisse out there, and subsequently changed their name to the Afters. After making a name for themselves in the Dallas music scene, the Afters scored a deal with Epic and released their major-label debut in 2005, entitled I Wish We All Could Win. The album was a hit on the Christian charts, making it to the Top 25.

    In 2006, winning New Artist of the Year, the band went back into the studio to record its follow-up, Never Going Back to OK, which was slated for release in February of 2008. Following its release, it debuted at #41 on the Billboard 200 chart, selling about 16,000 units in its first week.
     It reached No. 1 on the R&RCHR chart in March 2008 and R&R magazine ranked it as the most played song on U.S. Christian CHR radio of the same year.
    The album won a Dove Award for Rock/Contemporary Album of the Year(2009) at the 40th GMA Dove Awards. The title song was also nominated for Rock/Contemporary Recorded Song of the Year(2009).

    On August 28, 2015, the band released Live On Forever, the lead single from their fifth studio album of the same name set for release in September 2016.

    Better than the last | Posted April 12, 2013
    This album sounds even better than their last one, and that one was amazing. It takes a really good artist to pull off an album where every song on the album is great and The Afters have done it again.
