Afterhours is an Italian alternative rock band. The name is a tribute to the same-titled Velvet Underground's song.

Biography[edit]

The Afterhours were formed in 1985 in Milan around Manuel Agnelli, a Velvet Underground fan. They debuted in 1987 with the single My bit boy, followed a year later by the EP All Good Children Go to Hell. The band has released two albums and two EPs in English. Since Germi (1995), the group switched to Italian language, except for Ballads for Little Hyenas, produced by Afghan Whigs leader Greg Dulli, who also played with the group in a 2006 tour in the United States. In 2009, the band won the "Mia Martini" Critics Award at the Sanremo Music Festival. In the same year they released the compilation "Il paese è reale" ("The country is real") aiming to advance the Italian indie rock scene.
