After We Go is the second album from the post-grunge band Tantric, and was released on February 24, 2004. The album was recorded at Ocean Way studios in Nashville,Tennessee with producer Toby Wright. It debuted at #56 on the Billboard Album Charts but quickly lost momentum due to the lack of a successful single. Despite the issue of lack of radio success, the album is considered a success by Hugo Ferreira, because the album did extremely well through the medium of downloading.
With this album, the band continued their rather distinctive method of blending well-layered melodic vocals over distorted guitars, which often garners the comparison to Seattle group, Alice in Chains. The album is slightly heavier as a whole, with the opener "Chasing After" setting the stage for the whole album. The sophomore effort also features more vocals from original guitarist Todd Whitener, including the lead in the chorus of the title track, "After We Go." A music video was produced for the single "Hey Now," which predated the album's release. The follow-up singles, the title track and a cover of Fleetwood Mac's "The Chain," also met with poor reception. Nevertheless, Tantric soldiered on, touring with 3 Doors Down and Shinedown for much of 2004.
Tantric's cover of "The Chain" became the theme song for HBO's Family Bonds. The opening track, "Chasing After," was also featured in the video games WWE Day of Reckoning and WWE SmackDown! vs. Raw in fall 2004.
