AFI to release box set of 8 live DVDs + EP!

This was an April Fool's prank.

UPDATE: Word is that the band I Fight Dragons might be opening for the DVD shows. You can watch their video below.

During these days with no relevant AFI information, Jade tweeted they've been practicing for the first time in months. After AFI finished their contract with Intercope Records, we know that AFI met with Dexter Holland, owner of Nitro Records, and they signed a 4 year and 3 album releases contract with Nitro Record, and since Blaqk Audio is releasing Bright Black Heaven soon and AFI is not recording any new material soon, the first release will be a 8 (eight!!) DVD box set under Nitro Records!

"This is the biggest release Nitro Records has ever done and possibly the biggest we'll do. We're very glad to have our friends of AFI back in the label and we're hoping the best for them and us. They've put out many good albums after their first time with us so we're thrilled to have them back!" - Dexter Holland, in an e-mail interview with AFI News HQ

It was also revealed to us that this box set will contain 8 DVDs, each consisting in a live performance of every AFI album, all played from start to finish, including Nitro's vinyl only songs, mimicing Coheed and Cambria's "Neverender" release!!

According to them, the 8 dates only mini tour is:

May 26th 2011 - Berkeley Square, Berkeley, CA (Answer That show)
May 28th 2011 - 924 Gilman St, Berkeley, CA (Very Proud show)
May 30th 2011 - Nokia Theatre, New York (Shut Your Mouth + AFI EP show)
June 5th 2011 - Astoria, London England (Black Sails show)(DF only show)
June 7th 2011 - Bercy, Paris, France (All Hallow's + The Art of Drowning show)
June 13th 2011 - Verizon Wireless Amphitheatre, Los Angeles, CA (Sing The Sorrow show)
June 16th 2011 - Estadio Azteca, Mexico City, México (Decemberunderground show)
June 19th 2011 - The Troubadour, CA (Crash Love show)(DF only show)

Prices for shows are $37 USD, if you show your Despair Faction card you get a 20% discount. Ticket information will be released as soon as we know!

The DVD box set will feature:

* 8 (eight) live DVDs consisting of the entire show of AFI performing all songs from their albums, depending on each show
* Nitro's special edition of each album, featuring alternate covers and band comments of each album
* A 100 page book, featuring full color pictures of exclusive AFI photos from their Nitro Records era
* An EP featuring unreleased songs like Behind the Times' "Stupidest", "Weight of Words" and more!!

The DVD will be released on August 28th 2011 and we still don't know the price. Stay tuned!

This is the best opportunity to see AFI performing their old songs, and songs they haven't even played live!
