Last June, we reported that AFI were working on their long-awaited follow-up to 2013’s Burials, but as of late, the band has been posting cryptic videos on their Instagram page since last Monday in anticipation of the record. They also released a picture with three red tears on a black-and-red background via Facebook page, and announced that they will be teasing something on Friday, October 28th, midnight eastern.
In addition to the teasers, AFI released a 43 second song called “O-“, which features the same three tears as the single art, although the tears are red on a dark background, whereas on the Instagram post, they were black on a red background. They also put the song on a playlist simply entitled “BLOOD”. You can check it out below.
When the new AFI album will be released is unknown, but we’ll keep you posted as more details on it come to light.
