“Combining elements from the band’s last few albums, “I Hope You Suffer” may be the most cinematic effort in the history of AFI. It opens like a horror movie trailer, then builds with a concoction of piano and electronic drumming until erupting into an anthemic chorus that is as catchy as it is dark,” writes Our Stage Magazine about AFI‘s new single, “I Hope You Suffer”
Musictrajectory.com‘s Christopher Freyer, a self-proclaimed HUGE AFI fan says, “Judging by the sound of this new song, it sounds like the band has reinvented itself, but at the same time kept that classic AFI sound.”
Purevolume.com calls the single “Exactly what we needed at the end of a long day.”
AFI have plans to release a new album later this year, so expect additional headlines to surface in the weeks ahead.
