Afterimage was a Filipino pop rock band active during the 1990s. The group disbanded after 11 years and made three studio albums. After disbanding, Wency Cornejo, the band vocalist, pursued a solo career. Afterimage popularized the song "Habang May Buhay", "Next In Line", and "Mangarap Ka".

The band's first album was released in 1992 under Dyna Records titled "Touch The Sun" which contains 8 songs and 4 released as singles ("Bai", " Only You", "Next In Line" and "Pagtawid"). The title "Touch The Sun" is a phrase from the track "Next In Line". It is said that Wency just accidentally blurted it out the recording session. The band thinks it captures what the songs in the album is all about - life in its fiery form. It symbolizes hopes frustrations and, more importantly the kind of renewal they feel within themselves as they touch other people's lives.Fact|date=August 2007

The album is also said to be a celebration of about 4 years of musical experimentation. According to them, "It is quite difficult to put all the songs in the album in one perspective, considering they encompass so many growths the band has undergone."Fact|date=August 2007

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).

In 1994 at the height of the first band craze in the Philippine music scene, Afterimage released their second album titled "Tag-araw, Tag-ulan". The album's name was taken from two singles from the album, the album's carrier single "Tag-ulan" topped many charts in the Philippines and was awarded a Gold Recorda Award, later the follow-up single "Mangarap Ka" became a great hit for the band & at the 1995 Awit Awards it was named Album of the year, A Few months after winning the awards Niño Mesina became the band's newest bassist making Bobbit Uson hold the guitar for the band together with Chuck Isidro.
