Described as an intense fusion of modern rock, reggae, Latin and classic rock, Afterglow Radio is reminiscent of the current mainstream music that dominates the airwaves and Billboard music charts today.

As long standing members of the Orlando, FL music scene, the four members of Afterglow Radio set out to write songs, rehearse and play a few shows to see how receptive the Orlando market would be to their original brand of music.

Over the next year, they played the Orlando market and surrounding areas and it was clear that there was much more potential than anticipated. This included headlining shows at Hard Rock Live as well as sharing the bill with Sevendust, Chevelle and Buckcherry at 101.1 WJRR’s annual Earthday Birthday. They have also been accepted to perform this year's Florida Music Festival.

One of Afterglow Radio’s recent hits, “I’m Running”, received critical acclaim and was awarded as one of Garageband.com’s top tracks of 2007. Orlando’s Radio stations Real Rock 101.1 and O-Rock 105.9 have, in addition to playing their album tracks, invited the band to play acoustic performances on air. With the help of the internet and intense promotional groundwork, they soon found that they had a rapidly growing number of fans worldwide. Playing shows and seeing fans sing along to their songs inspired them to create a full length album.

In the fall of 2007, Afterglow Radio went into the studio to record new tracks for their debut LP produced by Ted Comerford (Virginia Coalition, Zox, Army of Me), and Justin Thomas (Dark New Day, Faktion). Mixed by Jeff Juliano (John Mayer, Dave Matthews Band) and mastered by Tom Baker (Precision Mastering), these new recordings truly exemplify the band’s broad range of songwriting and musical talent. Afterglow Radio’s intense passion for their music is well represented in their powerful live performance.

'Finding Yourself Again' is diverse in its musical content as well as lyrically poignant. “Afterglow Radio is without a doubt one of Central Florida's premier bands, perhaps the most likely to succeed on a national and international level.” -Mike Nunez, FLORIDA TODAY.
