After the Tragedy has been featured on MTV twice within the past years: Once in 2006 as the winner of Freedom Zone's "Amplified Challenge", earning a slot at SXSW in Austin, TX with Thursday, HelloGoodbye, Matchbook Romance, Halifax, Jack's Mannequin, and Morning Wood, plus their own original recordings on Amped 3 for XBOX 360, and scoring $10,000 in prize money with which they bought a van for extensive touring. In 2007 they were featured on MTV for a second time when voted into the Dew Circuit Breakout's Top 6 against an unspeakable 4000 other talented bands. Other achievements include being featured in the November 2007 issue of Alternative Press Magazine, as well as elected into the "Top 3 Unsigned Bands of 2007" in Hard Music Magazine.
"At one point in everyone's life they will experience some form of tragedy, whether it's a death in the family, terrorist attack, weather catastrophe, or getting fired from the job expected to be their career. Eventually, the victim always turns to faith in something; a look to something bigger than one's own life. The realization that all the money, cars, sex, and stuff that this generation tells us we must have means absolutely nothing in the grand scenario of life. After the tragedy we find hope in the fact that death is not the end." -ATT
