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!

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!

Audible Assault's 2-Year Anniversary in Review

On Saturday February 9, 2019 we made our second appearance at Audible Assault Entertainment’s annual anniversary party and had a fantastic time rocking out and partying with so many great local bands.

We were the last band to play and really appreciate everyone staying so late to watch our set and for singing our songs so loudly! Words cannot describe how magical it is to hear you all sing the ending to ‘The Meadow’, a powerful song about the suicide of a close friend. This also marked the first time ever we didn’t end our set with this song because the crowd insisted we play an encore so we ended up ending with ‘A Tragedy Until We Forget’, an old classic DoaA jam.

Barrels of LaughTour at Joe's Grotto May 23, 2018 in Review

Thank you to everyone who came out and supported us opening for Dead Horse Trauma last month at Joe's Grotto for the Barrels of LaughTour 2018 stop in Phoenix, AZ. We had an absolute blast playing with all the bands and hanging out with everybody. Wednesday nights can be a tough time to do a show so we really appreciate that there was such a great turnout. If you didn't make it you missed out on delicious peanut butter & jelly sandwiches and the most metal pillow fight ever fought. 

Special shoutout to our awesome friend Sammy and to Nathanael Reveles for taking some really fantastic photographs of our set.
