AFI returns to the road for more U.S. tour dates

AFI will return to the road for its first live shows in the U.S. since its July 7, 2007 appearance at Live Earth. The eight-date run of club and theater shows will commence October 2, immediately following the September 29 release of the band’s brand new album, CRASH LOVE, on DGC/Interscope.

Produced by Joe McGrath and Jacknife Lee, CRASH LOVE is AFI’s eighth album and arguably the band’s most focused, direct and ambitious effort to date. CRASH LOVE follows up two consecutive platinum AFI albums, 2006’s DECEMBERUNDERGROUND which entered the U.S. chart at #1 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).
