|THANKS FOR YOUR SUPPORT IN 2012!|
|The year 2012 may be on its way out, but After All isn't! We'd like to say thanks to all you metalheads out there for making 2012 such a successful year for After All.
Highlights include the release of our 8th studio album 'Dawn Of The Enforcer', our very first arena show opening for Judas Priest, a short tour of Germany and Switzerland with Sacred Reich, and a ton of cool shows throughout Belgium and Holland.
Thanks to Roadrunner Records/CNR (Benelux) and Ván Records (anywhere else), the promoters we worked with in 2012, and you of course, for your continued support!
Some say 2012 will be difficult to top, but we are convinced that the best is yet to come. We will return to the stage in the spring of 2013. Until then, we are in full writing mode for what is to become the next After All album. So stay tuned...
To start 2013 in style, we present the brand new, official video for 'To Breach And Grieve' on January 1st. Make sure to check the official After All YouTube channel: www.youtube.com/afterallmetal. Happy newyear!

|'DUSK' EP: TWENTIETH ANNIVERSARY|
|In the summer of 1992, After All released their first EP 'Dusk'. "It seems hard to believe", said After All guitarist Drieze. "Twenty years have passed since that first EP, and what a trip it's been!" Since 1992, After All released six more EPs and eight full albums - 91 original songs. The band toured all over Europe with bands such as Judas Priest, Anthrax, King Diamond, Fear Factory, Testament, Overkill, Stone Sour, and many more.
We'd like to give a big shout out to our loyal crew and our fans, both old and new, for sticking with us for all these years. No retreat! No surrender!
|"We achieved far more than we could ever imagine when 'Dusk' came out twenty years ago..." After All re-recorded the track 'Blind Euphoria' - originally released on the 'Dusk' EP - for their 2006 album 'This Violent Decline'. "It's always nice to revisit that old stuff", added Drieze. "It helps to put everything in perspective. So yeah, let's rock on for some twenty more years!"|
|THANKS FOR YOUR SUPPORT DURING THE SACRED REICH TOUR|
|Better late than never... We'd like to say thanks to all the metal maniacs that came out to support us during the Sacred Reich tour, earlier this summer. These tour dates definitely were the best way to present the new album in Germany and Switzerland! Good times were had... Thanks again and see you soon!

Dan Swanö also worked on After All’s latest album ‘Cult Of Sin’ (2009) and the band’s two EP releases ‘Betrayed By The Gods’ (2010) and ‘Becoming The Martyr’ (2011). Dan Swanö will mix and master the new After All album at the infamous Unisound Studios in Örebro, Sweden.
In related news, legendary illustrator Ed Repka is currently finishing the artwork for After All’s forthcoming album. “Ed is a metal legend”, said Dries Van Damme. “His artwork is what added extra greatness to our favourite releases of bands such as Megadeth, Evil Dead, Toxik, Nuclear Assault, Death, and many others from the 1980s thrash scene. We’re absolutely psyched to work with Ed on the concept and the design of the artwork.”
After All’s new album is set for release on March 23. The as yet untitled record will be the band’s eighth full studio album. After All described the new songs as both the heaviest and the most versatile of their long-running career.
