Afterhours is an Italian alternative rock band. The name is a tribute to the same-titled Velvet Underground's song.
The Afterhours were formed in 1985 in Milan around Manuel Agnelli, a Velvet Underground fan. Their debut was 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 the Ballads for Little Hyenas that was produced by Greg Dulli, who played along the
group in 2006's US tour. In 2009, the band won the "Mia Martini" Critics Award at Sanremo Music Festival. In the same year they produced
the compilation "Il paese è reale" (i.e. "The country is real") aiming to advance the Italian indie rock scene.
