I have been really excited to share this cd for review and giveaway with you all. The Live On Forever has been a favorite of mine all summer. Now the song Battles is quickly rising to one of my favorites. The Afters have a unique and very modern sound that is fantastically different. When I tell people Christian music has come a long way - this is exactly the type of music I'm talking about. God-loving worship songs that are bridging the generations.
“We worked on this record for almost two years and over those two years, it was a real season of loss,” Havens recalls. “But in the end, Live on Forever is about moving us to trust God, to stand up against fear. It’s an ‘ante up’ record, an anthem for people’s lives: ‘God you are with me in all this. I’m not alone.’”
Ask Havens to pick out a song that sums up the spirit of the album, and he chooses “Battles.” “It was the last song we wrote and the fastest we wrote,” he says. “We don’t typically write songs fast; we’ll change lyrics and melodies and craft our songs carefully. But ‘Battles’ poured out, the music and lyrics, in one day. It’s about standing up against fear and knowing God is always with us,” Havens explains. “It’s one of the takeaways we hope people get: ‘Don’t give up to fear.
