AFI to release “Crash Love”


Davey Havok, Jade Puget, Hunter Burgan and Adam Carson, collectively known as AFI, will release their eighth studio album, CRASH LOVE, September 29th on DGC/Interscope Records. Produced by Joe McGrath (Alkaline Trio, Green Day) and Jacknife Lee (U2, Weezer), CRASH LOVE is possibly AFI’s most focused, direct and ambitious effort to date. “I am so proud of this record. I really believe it’s the best AFI record. It honestly feels like we’ve made our first truly timeless record. We didn’t set out to do that–you can’t set out to do something like that–but it definitely feels like that’s what we’ve achieved: created the album by which we’ll be remembered,” expressed front man Havok. With an album full of standout tracks including “Medicate,” “Veronica Sawyer Smokes,” “End Transmission,” “Beautiful Thieves” and more AFI is poised to do just that, be remembered.

CRASH LOVE, the follow up to platinum albums Sing The Sorrow (2003) and DECEMBERUNDERGROUND (2006), will hit stores September 29th while the first taste of single “Medicate” lands on airwaves and the Internet on August 25th. “Medicate” will be made available for sale digitally on 8/25 and CRASH LOVE will also be available for pre-order on the same day at iTunes. Fans who pre-order the album from iTunes will also receive the exclusive bonus track, “Breathing Towers to Heaven,” an unreleased demo from the CRASH LOVE sessions.

In support of the forthcoming album AFI will head out on the road, the band’s second home, beginning this October in the United States. For more information on AFI, including the latest news, tour dates, and more visit, or and stay connected with the band on Twitter @AFI.
