From the frozen expanse of Minnesota, AfterTime emerges onto the Symphonic Metal scene. Described as “Nightwish up and coming,” they have adopted the playing style of their European counterparts.

With an emphasis on storytelling, AfterTime incorporates cinematic orchestra and memorable melodies to produce a class of metal that appeals to a diverse audience.

Formed in the last days of 2011 by Brad Sturgis and Chris Radke, AfterTime began composing the songs that would later be released on their debut EP “The Fall of Light.” Over the next three years the band was joined by AJ Blakesley, Sarah Wolf, and Malachi Arndt on drums, vocals, and bass respectively. The Fall of Light was released on April 15th, 2016. AfterTime received genuine praise for their debut release and sales reached as far as The United Kingdom, Japan, and Brazil. Moving toward their sophomore release, AfterTime has had the opportunity to work with notable figures as Lukas Knoebl, Jacob Hansen and Gogo Melone. In the realm of life shows, AfterTime has shared the stage with Symphonic Metal titans Epica and look forward to playing with Delain and Hammerfall in early 2017.

2016 was a very successful year for AfterTime, marking the release of their debut EP “The Fall of Light.” They also wrote, recorded, and produced their upcoming single “World We’ve Lost” all while making various appearances on stage.

With the goal of being an American delegate for a predominantly European genre, AfterTime looks forward to the opportunities that allow represent the Symphonic Metal genre.
