Davey Havok, Jade Puget, Hunter Burgan and Adam Carson, collectively known as AFI, will be releasing their eight studio album, “Crash Love”, later this year on Interscope Records.
The band and producer Joe McGrath were recently joined at Los Angeles’ Conway Studios by the winners of the recent Begin Transmission contest, in which the band members personally went through thousands of fan-made video submissions and chose a handful of entrants to
contribute backing vocals to the new album.
The members of AFI also chose Honorable Mentions from the Begin Transmission contestants, each of whom received a handmade Valentines Day card by the member of AFI who chose him or her.
AFI will play its first live show of 2009 June 20 at Edgefest in Toronto. Tickets go on sale Saturday, February 28.
CRASH LOVE follows up two consecutive platinum AFI albums, 2006’s DECEMBERUNDERGROUND and 2003’s SING THE SORROW. AFI’s discography also includes the full lengths THE ART OF DROWNING (2000), BLACK SAILS IN THE SUNSET (1999), SHUT YOUR MOUTH & OPEN YOUR EYES (1997), VERY PROUD OF YA (1996) and ANSWER THAT AND STAY FASHIONABLE (1995).
