AFI to Release New Album Burials Oct. 22

AFI have announced an October 22nd release for their highly anticipated new album Burials. The news follows last week’s sneak preview of the album’s first track, “I Hope You Suffer.” A remix of a new AFI song titled “17 Crimes” will serve as the end title track to the upcoming film, The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones. “17 Crimes” also appears on the soundtrack, which is being released on August 20th.

Rolling Stone described “I Hope You Suffer” (now available on iTunes) as an “epic” song, “layering [lead vocalist Davey] Havok’s anguished cries within a lightning storm of distortion, synthetic orchestrations, and volcanic percussion.”

About the album, Havok says, “This record is of silence, of burials, and the burials that result from that silence. It’s of betrayal, cruelty, weakness, anxiety, panic – deep and slow – despair, injury and loss. And in this it is shamefully honest and resolutely unforgiving.” Burials is AFI’s ninth full-length studio album.

AFI is also announcing a U.S. headline tour this Fall with support acts Touche Amore and COMING. Follow the link for full tour date info. Ticket pre-sales begin tomorrow, Wednesday, July 24. General on-sale begins Saturday, July 27.
