Discovery of an Afterlife (aka DoaA) is a post-hardcore / emo pop-punk transient rock band from Phoenix, Arizona, officially founded on August 20, 2015. The band's first release was a Self-titled EP in December of 2015 which catapulted them to the top of the ReverbNation charts.
The success of this Self-titled EP was followed up by their first full-length album 'Something More Than Us' a year after forming in August of 2016, featuring the four original 'Discovery of an Afterlife - EP' tracks re-mastered by Steve Nagasaki and 7 all-new original songs.
Most recently, the band has released their first single, 'Pants On Fire,' off their upcoming EP 'Mistakes We Make.'
Discovery of an Afterlife is composed of the angelic melodies of Jon's bright vocals, contrasted against brutal blood-curdling screams. Leon forms and molds his layered guitar tracks to create an epic journey through life and death. Jayne covers Leon's layers with her fiery shredding. Buried, but very much alive, are the punchy bass and driving drums of bassist Dan and drummer/producer Josh. The tracks are a scorching conglomeration of different metal genre's, that comfortably meld together in your ears. The dual themes of life and death give the band's work a haunting and visceral sense of depth to be enjoyed by a large audience.
