A Less Eloquent Man
After The Burn is a punk rock band based in the Jersey Shore, formed in early 2014.
Honing their sound from a multitude of genres; from Surf Rock, Garage Rock, & Punk Rock, to Hardcore Punk & traditional Rock N' Roll. The band has been building a strong following, built on their live performances. Performances that showcase their catchy punk rock tunes with meaningful lyrics, that reflect the everyday life of ordinary people, not unlike their own. In the Summer of 2014 the band brought 4 of those tunes into EightSixteen Studios and emerged with The Eternal Embrace EP (Produced by Pat Noon).
