FOLLOW-UP TO 1,000,000+ SELLING DECEMBERUNDERGROUND DUE IN 2009
AFI is inviting its fans, as vocalist Davey Havok puts it, “to be a part of the record, very literally. We’d like to invite you to come and sing on this new record that we’re making.”
Havok, guitarist Jade Puget, bassist Hunter and drummer Adam Carson are asking fans to submit videos (maximum two minutes in length), providing personal background, interests, etc. ultimately proving why he or she should be chosen to be a part of the new AFI album.
Submissions will be accepted at Begintransmission.afireinside.net from Saturday, December 20th through Sunday, January 4th. The band will watch each and every entry and will choose five winners to sing on a track on the new record. One additional winner will be chosen by AFI fans who will be able to vote on submissions posted at the AFI site.
AFI’s as yet untitled eighth record follows up DECEMBERUNDERGROUND, which was released on 6/6/06, debuted at #1 on the U.S. album chart, and went on to sell over a million copies. By January 2007, AFI had taken home an MTV Video Music Award (Best Rock Video for “Miss Murder”), scaled the year end best lists of ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY, ROLLING STONE, BLENDER, ALTERNATIVE PRESS, SPIN and REVOLVER, and made a debut appearance on SATURDAY NIGHT LIVE.
