The Afterimage has launched a crowd funding campaign to help offset the costs of recording and a recent vehicle breakdown that has prevented the band from continuing to tour. Details on the campaign are available here. The group comments:
"Just a week ago (During our Cross Canada tour) we met a very unfortunate fate. Our van was written off and scrapped, our trailer impounded.
"We even had to call 911 to transport us to the nearest town (Broadview, SK) because we had absolutely no money for a cab. We spent countless hours in freezing temperatures waiting for help. With all the fees and costs involved, any funds raised previously during the tour quickly dissipated. All of us put absolutely everything we have into this project. We all work full time to fund this band.
"Regrettably, that just isn't enough at this point and we could really use YOUR assistance. Please consider donating to our indiegogo campaign. We do not want to have to bring this project to a halt because of these events. Your support means everything to us... we must move forward together. There's tons of sweet perks for those who donate as well!" More...

You can also hear the previously posted song "Shallows" at this location. The following press release was issued about the band and the upcoming EP:
"The Afterimage serves up progressive metal with hardcore attitude and the ‘Formless EP’ is an addictive taster of the exciting things to come from this young band. Intertwining guitar lines, tight riffage, scatty rhythms and big breakdowns lay the foundation for the guttural growls and technical leads taking centre stage, and combined with euphoric melodies and atmospheric synths, they create a ferocious and stimulating barrage of sound. Following upcoming tours in Canada, the band hopes to come to Europe mid-2013 to support their as yet unreleased debut album." More...
