Song Of The Week: 1/5/14
Artist: After The Fall
Album: "You Don't Have To Sleep To Dream"
"Smile" is a song that appears to be about a relationship that is growing and moving in many directions but the one constant is their burning passion and love for each other. No matter what obstacles appear between the two, it's her smile that overcomes everything else. You get a sense the vocalist is saying that no matter what comes up in their life, they will make it through because they have each other. There is not a whole hell of a lot of information about After The Fall on the internet. I know they are from Nebraska and probably formed around 2007. The band should probably think about changing their name because when you search "After The Fall", mostly what comes up is information about the long running Albany, New York hardcore band After The Fall. Nebraska's After The Fall is much more Red Jumpsuit Apparatus or Taking Back Sunday than the hardcore punk of the band from Albany. In 2007, After The Fall released a five song EP entitled "We Invented A World". In 2010, they self-released their first full length album, "You Don't Have To Sleep To Dream" and in 2012, they released another EP, "Your Final Goodbye", which featured four songs. Currently, the band remains unsigned as they continue to tour to make a name for themselves and possibly earn a recording contract. My advice to them.. change your band name so that you are not confused with someone else. I think that could be the first step in the right direction for this band.
