AFTERLIFE RELEASES NEW HEAVY-HITTING SINGLE “SACRIFICE“
DEBUT ALBUM BREAKING POINT DUE OUT JANUARY 11TH, 2019
ON TOUR WITH CANE HILL AND SHARPTOOTH NOW
Afterlife has released the second single from their upcoming debut album today. “Sacrifice” is one of the heaviest tracks the band has ever released and showcases the band’s unique music style, blending influences ranging from metal to hip hop all in one cohesive and heavy-hitting song. On the track, the band shares “‘Sacrifice’ is the heavier side of ‘Breaking Point‘ and during its conception we chose to reflect back on all of the things we had to let go of in order to pursue this dream. Literal Blood, Sweat and Tears went into this album and this song is a perfect way to showcase the struggles we endured and the ways we came out on top.” Fans can stream “Sacrifice” at http://smarturl.it/sacrificevisual.
“Sacrifice” joins previously released single, “Throat,” which has seen incredible success at streaming with adds to Spotify’s Rock Hard, New Core and New Blood Playlists as well as Amazon’s Fresh Hard Rock and The Forge UK Playlists. Additional support from BBC Radio 1, idobi Howl and a peak No.6 spot on Sirius XM Octane has propelled Afterlife into headphones of listeners around the world.
Breaking Point, the band’s debut full-length and first release on Hopeless Records, is due out January 11th, 2019. Following up their fast and in-your-face Vicious Cycle EP, the upcoming album ambitiously tackles a variety of impactful topics from mental health and domestic assault to political apathy and the weight of guilt over the course of 10 unique tracks that blend influences like Slipknot, Linkin Park and modern hip-hop.

Afterlife, made up of vocalist Tyler Levenson, guitarist Andrew McGuire, drummer Luke Walkinshaw and bassist Tristan Edwards – emerged from West Palm Beach, Florida at the tail end of 2016 with a clear vision of what they wanted to bring to the world with their music. “We talked about what we find in music that’s nostalgic and memorable and implemented that into what we felt was true to us and just started from there,” Levenson says of the band’s formation.
