After the Fight is a punk/rock band based out of Elgin, IL. The band was formed in April 2004 and their debut album 'Basura Solamente' was recorded (in one weekend) in the fall of 2004 and released on Bone Records in May 2005. 'Basura Solamente' has received strong reviews from such media outlets as AMP Magazine, The Illinois Entertainer, and Chicago's All-Ages Zine. ATF was also voted as one of the Chicago area's top 5 alternative bands of 2005 by Suburban Nite Life Magazine! ATF plays a brand of infectiously catchy, mid-nineties, Southern California melodic snotty rock/punk. With influences ranging from Bad Religion, Samiam, A.F.I, & MxPx to the newer wave of bands today such as Gaslight Anthem and The Loved Ones, the band is a steady presence in the Chicagoland music scene and have opened for national acts such as Murphy's Law, Local-H, The Lawerence Arms, Spitalfield and the Pink Lincolns.
