Note: this is an updated version of a story that ran on February 25, 2009.

It’s official. The title of AFI’s forthcoming studio album will be “Crash Love.” The announcement came through a press release issued by AFI’s official PR company, Nasty Little Man. Though this relationship is not very well known, they are indeed a legitimate source.

The release implies that the EdgeFest 2009 show will begin AFI’s summer/fall tour, though this is not confirmed. The only concrete thing we know up to this point is that the album’s name is Crash Love. Here is the press release:

Davey Havok, Jade Puget, Hunter Burgan and Adam Carson, collectively known as AFI, will be releasing their eight studio album, CRASH LOVE, later this year on Interscope Records.

The band and producer Joe McGrath were recently joined at Los Angeles’ Conway Studios by the winners of the recent Begin Transmission contest, in which the band members personally went through thousands of fan-made video submissions and chose a handful of entrants to contribute backing vocals to the new album.

The members of AFI also chose Honorable Mentions from the Begin Transmission contestants, each of whom received a handmade Valentine’s Day card by the member of AFI who chose him or her.

AFI will play its first live show of 2009 June 20 at Edgefest in Toronto. Tickets go on sale Saturday, February 28.

CRASH LOVE follows up two consecutive platinum AFI albums, 2006’s DECEMBERUNDERGROUND 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)
