As the end to restrictions on live music came back in sight, hiphop duo Snotty Nose Rez Kids felt invigorated. A two year plan for another album idea was put on the backburner as the guys decided to just write about what they had gone through and things affecting them before settling on the theme of Life After – a record to prove that SNRK are still here. This album wasn't the project we set out to make. In 2020, we had plans for a whole other concept but COVID stalled our career and made us examine a lot of the things about ourselves that we were too busy to notice. We ended up looking deep, using forced isolation to begin to address issues around mental health and depression. Those issues were amplified when we started losing friends and community during the pandemic. When it was hard to see a light at the end of the tunnel, we started thinking a lot about what life would be like after lockdown, once live music could return and we’d be doing shows again. Once we'd be able to get that much needed energy and strength from the fans again. We called this album Life After which, for anyone, could mean a lot of things. For us, it means Life After going through a tough 18 months and emerging stronger than ever. – SNRK
Starting off with the hook "old spirits don't ever die," the LP's impactful "Red Sky At Night" calls to the fact that the older generations still look over the people of today. Don't cry when people pass because they never really die.
