AFI release name of new album
2013-07-23 by says | 59 Comments

AFI have confirmed that their new LP will be named Burials, and is set to be released on the 22nd of October 2013. They will also be headlining a tour starting in September along with Touche Amore.

Vocalist Davey Havok released a statement of what to expect of the album:
"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.

So far "I Hope You Suffer" was shamefully uninspired and resolutely tedious

I liked Medicate, but didn't care much for Crash Love. I have a feeling that this album will be a lot better though.

Wish the tour was coming near me...

If reviewed lower than a 3.0, the summary will be "Untrue." Watch.

"I'm waiting for a lot of people to make fun of davey's poetically cryptic description of the album yet forgetting they've always presented stuff in this fashion when they started having a darker sound around black sails in the sunset."

still doesn't mean that quote's not mega-gay

Not sure if I should take anyone seriously that says "mega-gay" when trying to make fun of someone that is honest and sincere in his words. Also, considering your username is EaglesBecomeVultures, you should know that Converge evoke similar emotions in their music and lyrics.

The lyrics on the last song were so forced, like a band impersonating AFI, like he doesn't actually feel all dark and stuff anymore, too happy

Did you even read the description, Treb?

"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.”

It's obviously super dark and emotional

Yeah, and I'm saying it sounds forced, cuz he's probably really happy at this point in his life, just like Isaac Brock, who at least doesn't pretend he's still pissed off at the world

Just heard one of these guys' songs on the radio ''Endlessly, She Said' It was alright. The singer is pretty great at screaming, but he hardly does it. He gets a bit whiny at times, and too feminine for me.

The hyperbole and lofty descriptions don't really match the music. Some sweet guitar from Jade on this though, dude's always been really good.

I thought DU was a 2.0 and I remember just being so let down during my first listen. After STS I was beyond excited for DU, but it is easily their worst album. I actually thought CL was fairly decent.

With that said, I have seen these guys 3 times (including once after CL) and their live performance is fantastic. Definitely worth going to see

Also for any new comers to AFI: The Art of Drowning is my favorite, but Sing the Sorrow is right
there as well

Disagree, both bands have far too rich a history and distinct vocal styles; if anything this is just praise of Jade's layering that Davey mentioned in one of the newer interviews.

Hmm, yes. *puffs pipe nonchalantly while flipping through SkyMall* Quite.
