After Image – Touch the Sun

AfterImage is a Filipino rock band who was active in the late 80s and 1990s. They disbanded thirteen years after their formation, having released three studio albums. After disbanding, Wency Cornejo, the band’s vocalist, pursued a solo career. AfterImage was the band behind the commercially popular songs “Habang May Buhay” (While There’s Life), “Next in Line”, and “Mangarap Ka” (Dream). In 2008, the band reunited and released their fourth studio album.

The band’s first album, entitled Touch the Sun, was released in 1992 on Dyna Records (now Dyna Music). Among the eight songs that the album contained, four were released as singles: “Bai (Sa Langit ang Ating Tagpuan)”, “Only You”, “Next in Line”, and “Pagtawid”. The title of the album, which was the concluding part of the lyric to “Next in Line”, was said to have just been a spontaneous utter of phrase which Cornejo made during the recording session for the said song. The band, having thought that the phrase, “touch the sun” had captured the essence and concept of the entire album, prompted them to use it as the album’s title. The recurrent theme of the songs in the album was a personal expression of hopes, frustrations, and self-renewal.[citation needed]

The band was composed of five members: Bobit Uson on bass guitar, Chuck Isidro on lead guitar, Rogie Callejo on drums, Arnold Cabalza on keyboards and Wency Cornejo on vocals. Francis Reyes (The Dawn) was the former guitarist of this band before Chuck Isidro (6cyclemind).
