The Skinny: The Afterimage has announced that they have signed to Raleigh NC’s Tragic Hero Records. The band features Kyle Anderson (vocals), Dallas Bricker (bass) Rob Zalischi (drums), Sam Jacobs (guitar) and Michael Leo Valeri (guitar) and is set to release their 8 song label debut titled Lumiere on August 28th. The band is excited to premiere the record’s first track, “Follow”, which you can listen to below.

Afterimage: “An impression of a vivid sensation (especially a visual image) retained after the stimulus has ceased.” One of the major goals of the band The Afterimage is just that, to leave listeners with a lasting impression or sensation after listening to their music. Taking cues from multiple genres and vastly different influences, Toronto, Canada’s The Afterimage, is ready for fans to hear their new sound after a brief hiatus.

The band was originally formed back in 2012 with Kyle Anderson (vocals) and Dallas Bricker (bass). Rob Zalischi (drums), Sam Jacobs (guitar) and Michael Leo Valeri (guitar) all joined at various times in 2013 and the line-up was then set. The band cites influences from bands like Dance Gavin Dance, The 1975, and Hands Like Houses. They also pull metal influences from TesseracT, Meshuggah, The Contortionist and The Tony Danza Tapdance Extravaganza.
