After The Sirens takes aim at the national scene from Boston's snowy North Shore.
Since late 2003, the band has captivated audiences in and around New England with a distinct sound that is both explosive and thoughtful. Rolling Stone magazine named After The Sirens the best local band in Massachusetts following a 2004 statewide Battle of the Bands. Not to be proven wrong, After The Sirens self-released a 2005 EP, "We Have No White Flags" (available online at www.afterthesirens.com/merch) to critical acclaim both regionally and nationally.
The band looks forward to making waves in 2006, kicking off the year with a national television debut featuring the new songs "Only God Can Save Us" and "The Song That Holds Us Still" on a forthcoming episode of Steelroots (www.steelroots.tv – check local listings for more information). Also, catch After The Sirens on a CD bundled with the Spring 2006 issue of Copper Press. A full-length label debut with Blue Duck Records is slated for a Summer 2006 release.
After The Sirens strives to create meaningful music that is delivered in a passionate, poetic and unconventional way. With strong focus on live performance, the band uses a unique theatrical method to showcase accessible, excellent music and a wider range of artistic elements with emphases on hope, open inquiry, and forgiveness.
