Following the recent debut of their acclaimed studio album, "Live On Forever," The Afters are taking their new music to fans across the country as they head out on the "Love Riot Tour" alongside Newsboys and Ryan Stevenson. The tour will hit venues all across the U.S., making stops in cities such as New York City, Chicago, Houston and outside of Buffalo.
The Afters will perform new music from "Live On Forever," hailed by critics as "fresh" and "timeless," including their latest single "Battles," which has hit the top 20 at Christian radio and continues to climb the charts.
In celebration of the new album, the band is doing a special download campaign on NoiseTrade starting today. The free album includes 17 songs spanning their career, including tracks from each of their five albums, plus a song from their brand-new release.

The Texas-based four-piece band was propelled into the national spotlight with its 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," "Dr. Phil," "Army Wives" 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" and "You Deserve It." A slew of media, including Rolling Stone, Seventeen.com, E! News Live, TV Guide, Premiere Radio and more, also picked up on covering The Afters.
The band released its fourth studio album, "Life Is Beautiful," in April 2013 via Fair Trade.
