New AFI album “Burials” to be released October 22nd

Following the release of several vague and cryptic teasers, AFI has officially announced the release of their 9th studio album, entitled “Burials,” on October 22nd via Republic Records.

Frontman Davey Havok had this to say on the album’s content:

“It is certainly – embarrassingly so – a very dark album, especially in its candidness, which is something, to be honest, that’s disappointing to me,” he says. “It’s something I just keep coming back to – I can’t escape it. It’s always a joy to me to reach away from that. But the themes and sentiments on this record are within that darker realm and that darker tone because I’ve always been honest in everything that I write. It’s beyond me. I’m crippled. There’s nothing I can do but be genuine in my writing, and that’s what came out this time – without any sort of pointed effort.”

AFI released their last studio album, “Crash Love,” back in September 2009.
