After the Fall is a 4-piece, original hard rock band formed in 2003. Having undergone several lineup changes over the years, the band met with success soon after their formation, but it's their current incarnation that has the city of Pittsburgh, and cities throughout the country, abuzz. With Matt Ferrante on drums, Steve Craven on bass, Zac Shepard on guitar, and Doug Carnahan on vocals/guitar, they've made a bang in Pittsburgh and surrounding regions since the addition of Carnahan on vocals back in the spring of 2012. More recently, they would replace longtime guitarist Brandon Cornish with Zac Shepard to solidify the attitude that the band was looking for. They've shared the stage with such national acts as Warrant, Sevendust, Corrosion of Conformity, Hurt, Primer 55, and more and have played in cities across the country, turning heads and recruiting new fans as if their lives depended on it.
Their sound is reminiscent of some of the great hard rock bands of the late 80's, early 90's, yet still stands out amongst their contemporaries as fresh, melodic, and just plain catchy. They're songs are predominantly driving, radio friendly, hard rock songs, infused with attention commanding guitar riffs, topped off with vocals and lyrics that drive their point straight home, and often through the heart.
