The full album will be available for pre-order the same day, with fans who purchase the pre-order receiving “Medicate” immediately. Additionally, the iTunes version of CRASH LOVE will feature two bonus tracks: the unreleased demo “Breathing Towers To Heaven” and “Too Late For Gods,” an outtake from the CRASH LOVE sessions. CRASH LOVE will be released September 29 on DGC/Interscope.
AFI recently added additional dates to its first series of live shows in the U.S. since its July 7, 2007 Live Earth appearance. The limited run of club and theater shows will commence October 2 in Minneapolis with additional dates running up to a November 7 appearance at the Riviera Theater in Chicago.
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).
