Valentine’s Day Is Fake: 1 Year Anniversary

It was exactly 1 year ago that we started AFI News HQ as a simple blog to keep track of the “Crash Love” happenings beginning on Valentine’s Day 2009. To celebrate a successful first year, we’ve reverted the header to our “classic” theme constructed by my poor Photoshop skills back in the blog’s early days. Don’t worry, it’s just for today!

We started this site as a way for fans to stay updated about AFI happenings all in one place, and that mission still holds true today. For all of you commenting, submitting corrections, delivering news tips, and even just taking the time to stop by, we thank you.

Now let’s get down to business. Very, very soon (likely tonight or tomorrow) we’ll be posting a full AFI show from 2003 for free download, thanks to Pablo.

Also, many of you have been asking for an update on the progress of our We Are One project that we started late last year. So far, we’ve received photos, letters, videos, and artwork from well over 50 fans. And because we want as many of you to get in on the project as possible, the deadline has been extended to the first week in March!
This is your chance to tell the band your story through whatever medium you like. We will be hand-delivering the book and DVD to them at the Charlotte, NC show on March 13.

Our second year is looking promising. We’re planning several big projects for you all, including updates to the Complete Discography and The Maelstrom, the completion of the We Are One project, more auctions for Haiti Relief, a focus on Blaqk Audio news once AFI’s touring is over, and something else (top secret) that we think you will enjoy.
