AFI Teases New Album
2013-04-17 by the artist formerly known as lakes | 90 Comments

AFI have released a teaser video on their official website. It's rather gothic in tone and depicts the band taking the stage. At the end of the video, it says "September 2013." This is presumably when their next album will be released.

The video can be viewed on afireinside.net.

The fact that they're calling themselves A Fire Inside gives me a vibe of a little old school AFI and Davey started yelling in the video and the spiked upside down cross; gothic dark imagery. Maybe a punk rock album

The opening track on the last album was great then it all went downhill very suddenly. I still have
hope that these guys can produce some great stuff; the last two albums just felt like they were
avoiding doing the stuff that they had been so good at.

I dunno, Hep. They've experimented, found minimal success, so they may realize it's time to return to what they're good at.

God, I hated the last two albums, and the image portrayed by Davey on DecemberUnderground was disgusting.

i mean its just like, for the band that wrote one of the best punk anti-suicide songs of all time, the amount of time davey alludes to taking his own life on du and crash love is fuckin DISGUSTING

Crash Love was bland and that's one thing that AFI never were, with Davey being the melodramatic guy that he is. DU certainly has it's problems, with it taking me ages to appreciate anything off it, but I really enjoy at least half of it now. Still hoping for that STS sound though. AOD is one of my favourite albums full stop but that AFI is definitely long gone. I don't think they could recreate that sound even if they wanted to.

I'm in the, love all their albums, camp, so I'm not too worried about where they're going with their sound. But it appears to be of a much darker tone based on this teaser and the despairfactions new theme.

If you think I don't make sense to you, you have comprehension problems. But, here: whenever a band moves away from punk or pop punk... I see a ton of people saying how they wish they'd go back to that sound. And it annoys the shit out of me.

Yes we all know Black Sails, All Hallow's, Art of Drowning, and Sing the Sorrow were the best; but Decemberunderground and Crash Love are good albums and have some great songs on them, not the entire album is full of classics like the four I mentioned earlier but don't easily shit on the past two.

I'm hoping for an 'Art Of Drowning' style album, but that's probably not what we're gong to get, but I like Sing The Sorrow a lot, so hopefully they'll go back to that.

I liked Decemberunderground, but Crash Love was a bit hit and miss.
