Zu Boutique: New Shirts in Three Days (Read Update)

There's a new counter on the shop for Zu Boutique, Davey's side project clothing line. All of the existing shirts have been sold out for quite some time. This new run of shirts is especially significant because it signals that the mysterious legal troubles facing Zu Boutique are over.

There is no word yet on how many new shirts will be put on sale, but according to the counter we only have to wait until Saturday night at 12:00am EST.

Update 9/2/11: Apparently, the legal troubles for Zu Boutique are not over. They just posted a tweet earlier today saying: "I guess we should've paid more attention to the cease and desist so it didn't turn into a search and siezure. Countdown stopped. Blog soon."

Hunter To Be In Stellar Corpses Video

Recently Hunter posted a picture to his Tumblr saying he had been on the set of the new Stellar Corpses video. In a post on the Stellar Corpses Street Team Dusty Grave has made the following statement:

SCST Sneak Peek: Hunter Burgan (AFI) behind the scenes at our music video shoot last week!

I'm posting this here for all you SCST members to see first cuz we love you and want you to know all the good stuff before it hits the main public.

In the comments Dusty added two more statements:

He made a great vampire. Wait til you see the video!!

We'll release it around Halloween. It's being edited right now.

Despair Faction Phoenix Project: Let's Reignite

If you have gone to the Despair Faction boards lately, you have probably noticed that it has become a ghost town. With the band's silence and a lack of new things to get excited about, it's no surprise.

We want to change that.

DF member BlaqkStarr has started an innovative project called the Despair Faction Phoenix Project. The aim is to "reconnect" the entire AFI family together. To participate, send an email to with your real name, your board name, and your full mailing address. Here is what will happen after that:

"With this project, every DF member will receive the mailing address of a random DF member. You will then write a letter explaining everything that you love about the DF, how the DF has helped you through hard times, your favorite AFI memory, your favorite memory you had because/on the DF, anything that you think will make another DF'er maybe remember that time, create a new friendship, or just relate to that feeling that you have! If you want to include pictures of AFI shows you've been to, paintings/sketches you've made, anything you want to add with your letter to make that connection!"

Even if you aren't a DF member, consider taking part. I encourage everybody reading this to participate in this project. Perhaps your life has become busier in recent years and you have lost touch with the amazing community that, for many of us, has had a great influence on our lives. Take a moment and send the e-mail, and make a connection with that anonymous fan. Let's reignite the community, starting today.

Through our bleeding, we are one

ANOTHER FULL SHOW: Brixton Academy 6/04/2010!

Here's yet another full AFI show rip, it's from Brixton Academy, London, England on April 6, 2010. I decided to do the full show in one single video, and the file size was 1.9 GB and it took almost 20 hours to upload... so you most likely won't see another one like this again. I will continue doing 1 video=1 song on my channel though, so don't worry!

I had previously uploaded this video, but I learned to rip in High Definition, and this show was recorded in a HD camera, so the quality on this is amazing and definitely better than the previous one! Although the video is embedded here, I would strongly suggest you go to YouTube and watch it there so you can watch it in full size, high definition quality. Enjoy!

FULL SHOW: AFI in Atlanta, GA in Feb. 1998!

We now present the second installment in our series of full AFI shows on our YouTube! Pablo has posted the full set of 15 songs from AFI's performance at the Somber Reptile in Atlanta, GA on February 18, 1998. They played the show several months after the release of Shut Your Mouth and Open Your Eyes, so the setlist is heavy on songs from that album, but there are plenty from the first two albums as well.

The show is divided into 16 videos that are individually titled because these old song titles may be less familiar to new fans. You can start watching the first video, and the rest of the videos will automatically play. Sit back, relax, and enjoy 36 minutes of old AFI madness! When you're done, be sure to subscribe to our channel so you will know right away when a new full show is posted. Our next installment will be posted on Tuesday, and that one will be one entire video.

SCANS: AFI in February 2000 Issue of Superhero Mag, Contains Interview with Davey and Old Photos

High quality scans of old punk magazines featuring AFI are notoriously difficult to find. When Chad Lancaster (of Chad Lancaster Photography) was digging through his collection of old AFI records, he found a copy of Superhero magazine from February 2000 that featured a cover story on AFI. The story contains an excellent interview with some really great photos.

The interview inside is very in-depth and looks back from the earliest days of the band to the significant changes that took place between Shut Your Mouth and Black Sails, to reflecting on the first tour with Samhain. There's a discussion of lyrical meaning in songs such as The Prayer Position and Totalimmortal, which is at times evasive and at other times revealing. You also won't want to miss the attribution of action figures to each band member!

Cease and Desist letters may be sent to
