With a week to go before the January 20th release of AFI (The Blood Album), AFI have premiered “Get Hurt,” the fourth track to be released in advance of the record! Check it out here:
“Get Hurt” follows the recent Pitchfork premiere of the band’s “Snow Cats” video, the Radio 1 Rock Show premier of ‘Aurelia’ and the Rolling Stone debut of AFI’s “White Offerings” clip. Fans can get new tracks “Aurelia,” “Snow Cats,” “White Offerings” and “Get Hurt” as instant downloads when pre-ordering AFI (The Blood Album) on iTunes or Amazon.
The multi-platinum-selling quartet (vocalist Davey Havok, guitarist Jade Puget, bassist Hunter Burgan and drummer Adam Carson) will be performing lead single “Snow Cats” on “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” on January 18th, to be followed by a special in-store performance at Amoeba Music in Hollywood, CA, on January 19th. AFI (The Blood Album) comes out on January 20th, and that night the band will kick off their headlining tour of North America, dubbed “The Blood Tour,” with a sold-out show at the Troubadour in Los Angeles (see itinerary below). Every ticket purchased for select shows on “The Blood Tour” will include a download of AFI (The Blood Album). For more info, please visit the band’s official site, http://afireinside.net/.
AFI (The Blood Album) is the band’s 10th full-length studio album, first for Concord Records, and first to be produced by guitarist Jade Puget, and co-produced by Matt Hyde (Deftones). It’s the follow-up to 2013’s Burials, which hit Top 10 on The Billboard 200. Since the release of 1995’s debut album Answer That and Stay Fashionable, AFI has written and recorded five top ten hit singles, hit No. 1 on The Billboard 200 (with the stunning Decemberunderground), garnered worldwide critical acclaim and amassed a fiercely loyal global following whose members number in the millions.
