Die brandneue, von Kile Odell (Motionless In White, Nita Strauss, Fozzy) mitgeschriebene und produzierte Single ‚Aftermath‘ ist nach Debütalbum, Besetzungswechseln und Pandemie für die US-Rockband FOREVER MAY FALL aus Charlotte, North Carolina, die Bands wie Evanescence, Halestorm, Bad Omens, Spiritbox, Underoath und viele mehr zu ihren Einflüssen zählt, so etwas wie Neustart, Rebranding und Wiedergeburt in einem, wie Gitarrist Colt Crevar erklärt:
„We’ve all had some incredibly crappy things happen over the last few years and overcoming them, seeing where we are now, how blessed we’ve become, truly gives ‚Aftermath‘ a passionate meaning“
Sängerin und Songwriterin Jillyan “Fox” Brennan fährt fort:
„Initially, ‚Aftermath‘ wasn’t intended to be a song of strength or reprieve. In fact, I was probably at my lowest when I went to the studio to write it. The initial demo was about being locked inside my head and consistently leading myself to failure. ‚Aftermath‘ has become this anthem of rebirth, for all of us. The definition of ‚Aftermath‘ always seemed so grim and dismal, but we’ve made it something to be proud of. You are the aftermath of every choice you make in life. I struggled with drinking for a few years. I’d drown myself in it whether it was due to stress from my daytime job or bad relationships or whatever minor inconvenience I decided to blow up into a major meltdown. I had to entirely break the hell down to realize that I needed a change. I barely drink now, and the strength and positivity I feel from letting go of that crutch is incredible; I feel like a completely different person. I feel stronger, kinder, and more focused on being present in the moment“.
