Afferent began in the summer of 2003 as a small acoustic project between two friends: John (vocals/guitar) and Andrew (guitar/backing vocals). After a few months of writing acoustic songs the two decided they needed to expand the sound.
In October of 2003, Joe (drums/backing vocals) and Nick (bass/backing vocals) joined the band and completed the lineup. The two guitarists decided to use an electric guitar sound as opposed to an acoustic sound and thus Afferent came into existence.
The band began writing music and played it's first show several months later in February of 2004... a battle of the bands in which they claimed the third place prize out of 10 bands. Soon after that, they recorded a 4 song EP entitled, "The Accumulation of a Thousand Wasted Saturday Nights" based on one of their songs. That EP is available through any of the members and at any show.
The band is currently trying to save up money to record their first full length album, which they hope to have finished by the end of 2004. When it is finished, they expect to play a lot of shows in their area to promote...
