After Forever quits/After Forever stopt




Dearest fans


After nearly 15 years and with heavy hearts, we have decided to call an end to a great and exciting time as After Forever.

We are extremely proud of what we have accomplished, and especially of the road we took to get here.
After Forever has never been a band that repeated itself; we always tried out new things, even though many of them were certainly done at a risk. We think that that has been one of the reasons we’ve always enjoyed enormous support from all our loyal fans.


The break we took in 2008 made us appreciate all the more what we’d experienced. Now more than ever, we can look back on so many fantastic moments, something we never would have expected to be part of when we started the band all those years
ago.

However, that break also made us aware of the fact that we can only continue After Forever with the energy, the full 110%, that we have always put into it and we’ve noticed lately that there is something missing.

We have always been musicians who create music with lots of passion, and during the break we built up our own lives again and have been musically active and experimenting in several genres.


Although After Forever is very special to us, we feel that we have reached the point where we need to explore the world of music in each of our own different ways.
Thus, we’ve decided to quit while we’re ahead.

We are sincerely proud of every CD; each album represents a unique period, and all comes together in our last album "After Forever," which made all of our dreams possible.

We hope After Forever will continue to be a source of inspiration for new bands and musicians alike so that our music can live on.

As band members, but also as friends, we’ve experienced so very much; highs and lows, good times and bad. We'll keep supporting each other in all of our various
individual projects and continue inspiring one another in making music.

Our MySpace page www.myspace.com/afterforever will be used
for updates on all of these projects and of course After Forever-related news,
as well.

You can be sure that this is not an easy decision for any of us. We'd like to thank all of our fans for their support, also during the break


We know that this will be a big disappointment to you, dear fans, and it makes it that much harder for us. You have always given us your all and it was our pledge, in turn, always to give at least as much back to you for as long as we exist. In this moment,
that’s unfortunately just not possible, so we'd rather leave you all the albums
and gigs we achieved with maximum input.

We'd also like to thank Nuclear Blast, TEG and MOJO for their patience and enthusiasm, the live crew, the fan club, the fan sites and everybody who's helped in every way possible.



We'll miss you all.



Most Sincerely,



Floor, Sander, Joost, Bas, Andre and Luuk



After Forever

many people including me asked for a farewell show or tour in the af forum

I'm sure they'll give us some solid answers soon, they just need their time, this is the biggest decision in their carreer
they were one of the best, if not the best Crying or Very sad

I just read it on the official website! I feel aweful! Such a good day but now this... I'm such a big fan of them! :'(
I sooooo hope they do a goodbye concert, a very last one. I don't care where it will be, I'll be there then!
I will be listening for the rest of this evening and tomorrow and the coming days to all of their cd's, which I all bought, even the collector one, Mea Culpa. Marc Janssen is currently grunting now on the first cd Wink

Nevertheless => :'( :'( :'(

I wasn't totally surprised considering the break they had been on... But still, a real disappointment for the year for sure. Sad One of those bands that I'd followed since the beginning, you know? I kind of felt a part of it all even being so far away.

All I can say is that I am really happy they made it out to the US for a full tour here on their self-titled album tour. Quite an experience, to say the least...!

not a real surprise... but I am very sad. AF is (was..) a band that could still reach their personal best.

I just read on an italian webzine.
i can only repeat the comment i left there: i loved them at the beginning, hated in the middle and fell in love with them again with their last ( Crying or Very sad until few days ago i would've said latest Crying or Very sad ) album.
It's also sad because they had so many misfortunes and in my opinion never got the attention they deserved and that were worth of.
No argue against other bands because i wouldn't find it fitting, so... let's hope that they'll keep on being on the scene with other wonderful music.
Sanders and Amanda Somerville's HDK are on the way, Floor's solo album, too. Joost is always very busy here and there, so... let's cross our fingers!

And maybe in some years we'll see them reunited on the MFVF's stage!

Until then... rest in metal, after forever!
