Anyone who hasn't checked out their newest album, Sing for the Sorrow, is nuts! Its really really awesome.

Limey... were they black/white and black/red? or where they black/white red/white? I dont remember.  when I buy a CD the first thing I do is rip all the tracks, take it out of the case and put it in a sleeve.  I only listen to the actual CD in my car.  I play only MP3's at home.

And Tricia... check out the following songs...


The Leaving Song Pt 2
Girl's not Grey
Bleed Black
This celluloid Dream

Those are my favorites off the newest CD.

they're bigger than they were when they started out in the garage... :lol: I wrote an article about them in the school newspaper:

      Four high school students making noise in a garage in the early 90's were looking for some way to alleviate boredom in a small town between skateboard sessions. As they learned to play their instruments with each practice, even they couldn't imagine what the band would become. With the release of their new album, "Sing The Sorrow," A.F.I (A Fire Inside) has finally outdone themselves. I've been following A.F.I for a long long time now, and they are needless to say, my favorite band. Even though they are constantly changing, they never cease to amaze me. "Sing The Sorrow" is A.F.I's first major record label release, with Dreamworks records. From the beginning, A.F.I has been signed on to Dexter Holland's (Offspring's lead singer) independent record label, Nitro Records. There is no doubt that changing record labels is a sign of A.F.I selling out. They feel that its a sign of A.F.I being all about the money, and not about the most important thing of all, the music. These pathetic ingrates couldn't be anymore wrong. What they need to realize is that a record label isn't what makes a band, their music is what defines them.
        While "Sing the Sorrow" is different for A.F.I they are far from selling out. A.F.I's new sound is unlike any other I have ever heard, chilling melodies colliding with furious aggression, and ocer top of it all is singer, Davey Havoks, eerie wail. Tracks like, "Dancing Through Sunday," "Death of Seasons," and "...But Home is Nowhere," A.F.I shows their true aggression with thrashing guitars, pounding drums, and Havoks perfected scream. A.F.I's more melodic side comes throughin songs like, "The Leaving Song," "Girls Not Grey," and "This Celluloid Dream." A.F.I mixes the two styles masterfully and the sound created is unexplainably perfect.
          For true A.F.I fans, this album may be different, but I guarantee that you will love this CD. For new listeners, you may not totally enjoy this album, but only because you don't fully understand it. Once again, A.F.I has created an impeccably superior album that will forever leave an impression on those that listen to it.
Thanks guys.

I didn't think I'd ever get done writing that... especially by my deadline... hehe

Twig
hopes you
liked it.  :D

hmmmm.... I disagree though.  I dont think Sing is that different from their earlier stuff.  its more refined.  Cleaner.  But not really different.

Eh, yeah.  AFI.  They are hella rad.  You might know them from "Girls Not Grey," "The Leaving Song Pt. II," or "Silver and Cold."  They are incredible.  From their earlier punk roots, to their more hardcore days, to their labeless ways of recent, they continue to astonish me with their amazing sound.  The drumming Adam Carson provides is great (some of my favorites of his work can be heard in "Miseria Cantera" from Sing the Sorrow and "Malleus Maleficarum" from Black Sails in the Sunset).  The bass Hunter plays is fantastic (Its cool to hear his bass parts throughout the songs, he does them so well).  The guitar Jade Puget rocks is phenomenal ("Dancing Through Sunday" on Sing the Sorrow!).  And, of course, Davey Havok's voice is simply beatiful for its wide range.  He can be singing low, then hit a high note, or he can be singing so melodicly and all of a sudden be screaming with such passion in his voice.  Its incredible.

Now, tell me that YOU like them.

Listen to more.  GNG is decent, but thats not their best by far.   Find things from Black Sails in the Sunset, check out the Total Immortal video, hear more songs from the album that aren't singles.  You won't be disappointed.

I saw them on the Hard Rock Cafe Live most requested. They were like #4. I couldn't figure out whether the lead singer was a boy or girl.  :oops:  He scared me.  8O
