When you hear “it’s all in the name,” that statement is one that holds very true for Live on Forever, which is the title of the latest CD released by The Afters. The compilation of songs is one that came together over two years and out of the ashes of tragedy.
” Just as the band regrouped to record, Havens witnessed the wife of a close friend contract cancer. Drummer Jordan Mohilowski (who produced the new album) had a brief health scare, and a close companion in his church—part of the worship team—was hit and killed by an impaired driver. She was a young woman, Havens says, who had unlimited potential.
The Afters, a Christian rock band, has been entertaining audiences for more than 15 years. It has been a little over three years since they released their last album. Live Forever is the bands sixth album since in inception in 1999. Drummer Jordan Mohilowski; bass guitarist Dan Ostebo; vocalist and guitarist Matt Fuqua and lead vocalist and guitarist Joshua Havens, return and bring the good music their fans remember.
There are 10 tracks on the CD. The songs are a combination of light beats (ex: “Battles”, “Time of My Life”, “Eyes of a Believer”, “Survivor” and “Legends”) to a more ethereal sound in the title track, “Live on Forever”, which also has a video. The album finishes with “When You’re With Me”, which reminds us of the comfort God can bring into our lives when He is a part of it. “Everything is how it should be when you’re with me.”
If you are a fan of The Afters, you will be pleased with Live on Forever. If you are new to their music, it is a nice introduction. What fans get from Live on Forever is an album of hope, inspiration and a reminder that God is always by our sides through the good and the bad; through it all.
