ABOUT THE BAND

Founded by Joshua Havens (vocals/guitar/keyboard) and Matt Fuqua (guitar/backing vocals), The Afters original formed as two musicians who worked together as baristas at a Starbucks in Mesquite, Texas began playing for customers at the local coffee shop.

Their popularity and fan-base would spread, as Joshua and Matt eventually moved on to performing at local clubs in the Dallas area. After catching the attention of a Nashville record label, the band, which also includes drummer Jordan Mohilowski and bassist Dan Ostebo, gained popularity with its first single "Beautiful Love." The song was used as the theme song for MTV's hit show "8th and Ocean" and was also featured in the 2006 Lindsay Lohan film, "Just My Luck."

After forging a partnership with a mainstream label in addition to its Christian market label, their second single "Never Going Back to OK" was a #1 hit that pushed listeners to drop their comfortable lifestyles and yearn for something greater. It was followed up with their single, "Light Up The Sky," which speaks of God's continued guidance when we stumble in the darkness.

With the song, "Broken Hallelujah," off their album Life Is Beautiful (2013), the band sings about praising Jesus, even through life's toughest trials. “There were times when we were in tears writing that song," Josh explains. "We opened the book of Job and saw a man who experienced more loss than we could ever fathom. In the midst of all that, he shaved his head and took off his clothes so that he truly had nothing left, fell to his knees and worshiped God. ‘Broken Hallelujah’ is a song about praising God, even when the only thing we have to offer is our worship.”

The band's album The Beginning and Everything After released at the end of 2018. It's a carefully curated collection of new songs, like "Well Done," combined with some of their greatest hits, including: "Light Up The Sky," "Broken Hallelujah" and "Live On Forever."
