2006-"You Were Going Nowhere Before...Glad To See You Arrived Safely" - EP



There is a distinct feeling and aura to Chicago's music scene, and this band draws inspiration from it. Their signature sound was formed through the unique perspectives of the band members as they have grown and matured as musicians. Each member paid their dues in countless other bands, and tired of only playing in the area and fueled by their desire to tour, After Never was born.

With their minds and hearts set, they headed into Chicago's Gallery of Carpet studios with producer Brian Ziezki (The Hush Sound, The Academy is„m, The Audition). They recorded a straight forward, honest sound that is hard to categorize into one specific musical genre. Their authentic sound is captivating and appealing, heavy yet still containing strong melody. With the release of their debut EP, You were going nowhere before„mGlad to see you arrived safely, in January 2006, After Never is making a stamp all their own in the swelling Chicago music scene.

Hailing out of the suburbs, After Never was founded in 2005 by Artie Woods (drums), Michael Murphy (bass), and Dennis Mitchell (guitar). Friends since high school, they wanted to accomplish their collective dream, to make music their life. Starting something new and all their own, the trio set out in search of a voice. Along came B.J. Radigan. His unique, in your face, loud style, is accomplished without the need to scream. An additional guitar player was needed to complete an already memorable sound, thus Adam Cieslak (Mitchell's childhood friend and former band mate) was added to complete the group.

The band has already landed shows with nationwide major label acts such as Kill Hannah, and with a rapidly growing fan base, After Never displays no signs of stopping soon. In addition, they have gained sponsorships from Random Clothing and C&C Drum Company. They are on a mission and not willing to take no for an answer. If you don't know them now„mit is only a matter of time.
