Band to perform their infectious single “Every Good Thing” on the nationally televised ‘The Better Show’ on April 22
Life is Beautiful even in the midst of a hectic tax week. At least it is for The Afters who release their fourth studio album today, April 16. The chart-topping foursome delivers their much-anticipated release to a sea of high praises after more than two and a half years since their last studio album. The project plays anthem to the heartbreaks and life experiences that lead to the album’s appropriately titled affirmation – Life is Beautiful.
The band kicks-off the release of Life is Beautiful with a week-long media run in New York City with visits to Billboard Magazine, FOX News Radio, Guideposts Magazine, Liberty Treehouse, Sirius FM and Star99.1 FM, among others. In addition, The Afters will perform their infectious lead single, “Every Good Thing” on the highly acclaimed morning show, The Better Show. Their interview and performance will air on the nationally syndicated lifestyle TV program next Monday, April 22. The single is also making impressive gains at radio, breaking into the Top 5 of the Billboard Hot AC/CHR Chart and jumping to No. 7 on the Billboard Christian Audience Chart.

Texas-based, four-piece band The Afters were propelled into the national spotlight with their 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 as well. 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 sensation on the silver screen with “Grey’s Anatomy” (ABC), “Dr. Phil,” “Army Wives” (Lifetime) 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” (NBC) and “You Deserve It” (ABC). 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.
