So AFI have carried on with the single releases, one after the other.. We had ‘I Hope You Suffer’ just the other week and now they’ve put the track for ’17 Crimes’ out. Its an interesting way of building up to the album I guess? I wonder if we’ll have all the tracks out by the release date for ‘Burials’?
Anyway, this one’s still not convinced me to pre-order the album (out October 22nd) yet, but I’m sure I’ll get around to it..
I know I basically covered this before with the lyric video, but every new AFI video is a must-watch really. This one’s a suitabley moody affair, complete with lots of dark eye contact, drawn faces and screaming from mr Davey Havok himself. If you’re a fan, you’ll probably love this already. If you’re not, you clearly haven’t listened to them enough.
So while I was having a lovely long birthday weekend (it was great, thanks for asking..) it seems I missed out on something pretty important! After a couple of months of ring-esque teaser videos, the amazing AFI have finally released a stream of their new single ‘I Hope You Suffer’.
As always with AFI, its never going to be ‘Sing The Sorrow’ all over again. (Which was, in my opinion, a pretty perfect album from the band). However, it sound like the band are steering back towards their heavier sound which always carried more passion and impact than the slightly more celebrity-focused releases of late..
