Hunter Discusses New Album in Blender Interview

In a new interview with’s Mark Yarm, AFI bassist Hunter Burgan has given new details about the overall sound of the upcoming album.

“We’ve done an extensive amount of demo-ing, more so than we’ve ever done in the past. This is definitely more of a rock album—more immediate and definitely more of a focused, direct approach musically. Compared to Decemberunderground, where some of the songs were more subtle, these are more in-your-face.”

Hunter also confirmed plans for a summer AFI tour — whether or not the album is out by then. “We expect to be done in time to tour on the record this summer. But whether or not it’s out, we’ll be on the road.”
