Discovery of an Afterlife’s ‘Mistakes We Make’ EP Release Party in Review

I realize that this post is extremely untimely but as the saying goes, better late than never!

We would like to officially announce the release of our brand new EP ‘Mistakes We Make’ which came out on May 25, 2019 at our EP release show hosted at Joe’s Grotto.

This was the biggest show of our career to date and we’re happy to report it was a success.

We had an absolute blast playing with some amazing local talent and even with a last minute cancellation we were thankfully able to pull it all off.


DoaA’s Final Show With Original Screamer Conner Posz

For those of you who missed it unfortunately you missed the last time our screamer Conner Posz will most likely ever perform with the band again and it was an incredibly special treat for all of us.

We are extremely appreciative of him reprising his role during ‘The Meadow’ and for our encore, ‘Another Year Without You Here.’

We wish Conner all the best and encourage you to check out his new band, Dead World Reclamation!

Thank You Audible Assault Entertainment

This was our very first headlining show where we picked the venue, the date, what bands would play, and all the minute details that go into putting a show on.

A HUGE thank you is in order to Steph Irvine of Audible Assault Entertainment because we couldn’t have done it without her. We absolutely love working with Steph and can’t imagine trusting anyone else with something this big for us.

If you’re a local band looking to start playing shows be sure to hit her and her company up because they treat their bands amazingly and always make sure the show goes on!

Huge thank yous go out to all the bands that came together to put on an awesome show and celebrate the release of our new EP.

Special thank you goes out to Killing Sunday for jumping on the bill at the last minute and to MC Madmundo for keeping the party going all night long.

About a day before the show Ciphered Existence had to unfortunately pull out of the lineup due to severe health concerns with their lead singer.

We are happy to report that Tanya has made a full recovery since then and is back to playing shows throughout the Phoenix area!

Thank You to Photographer Tim Campbell

Big thank you goes out to our friend Tim Campbell for hanging out and taking these stunning photos of us during our set!

He was even able to get some very cool shots of Josh which is always one of the hardest things for a photographer to do so major kudos to him. We really, really appreciate it!
