Nashville, Tenn. (Aug. 31, 2018) – “Well Done,” a song that points to the hope of Heaven and a life well lived, is the newest single from The Afters. The track will hit radio airwaves on Sept. 14, following The Afters’ upcoming performance at the notable Christian Music Broadcasters (CMB) Momentum Conference.

The song, already cultivating stories of hope and encouragement among fans, was years in the making as front man Josh Havens’ shares, “I lost my dad to cancer about fourteen years ago and there’s been a void in our family ever since. This past year, it especially hit home when two of my sisters got married. I just thought the whole time about how my dad would’ve loved to be there. As I looked around, I realized that my dad loved Jesus, and because of that he showed his family what it means to live a life in pursuit of Jesus. Because of his impact, my siblings and I all love Jesus. I can’t image a better legacy to leave behind. Someday – when this life is over – we’re going to leave behind all the pains of this world, all the suffering, all the heartache and we’re going to go before our creator. When we see Jesus face to face, we can look forward to hearing those words, ‘well done, my good and faithful servant.’ I hope this song is a comfort for anyone who has lost someone they love and is a reminder of how important this life is. ’’
