AFI

AFI (short for 'A Fire Inside') gained most of their popularity at the end of the 1990's, but the band has been around since1991. Formed in Ukiah, California during high school, the early sound can roughly described as Misfits inspired Punk. Afterreleasing their second EP, "Behind the Times",AFI decided to disband and go to college, but later dropped out and reunited torecord "Behind the Times" and manage to get a deal with Nitro, the label of Offspring's Dexter Holland. 1995 "Answer That andStay Fashionable" is released there, as well as the follow up "Very Proud of Ya".

AFI (short for 'A Fire Inside') gained most of their popularity at the end of the 1990's, but the band has been around since1991. Formed in Ukiah, California during high school, the early sound can roughly described as Misfits inspired Punk. Afterreleasing their second EP, "Behind the Times",AFI decided to disband and go to college, but later dropped out and reunited torecord "Behind the Times" and manage to get a deal with Nitro, the label of Offspring's Dexter Holland. 1995 "Answer That andStay Fashionable" is released there, as well as the follow up "Very Proud of Ya".

After line-up changes and the EP "A Fire Inside" (which followed "Shut Your Mouth And Open Your Eyes") the bandestablished their own musical profile with "Black Sails in the Sunset" (1999). The lyrics got darker, and Dexter Hollandappeared on the song "Clove Smoke Catharsis" as guest vocalist.

After "All Hallows" and "The Art Of Drowning" the same Dexter Holland encouraged the band to leave Nitro and look for abigger record label. Following this advice, AFI signed a contract with DreamWorks where the 2003 the major debut "Sing theSorrow"is released. But before that album was released, another EP was released known as "336", which included "Now theWorld"which made it on "Sing the Sorrow Bonus Tracks" and "Reiver's Music", which was only released on that EP. "Sing theSorrow"was produced by Butch Vig (Garbage, Nirvana, Smashing Pumpkins, Sonic Youth) the band presented their mostambitious album, which became a fairly good success in the USA.

AFI will be releasing their new album, called Burials, on October 22nd.
