"Burials" is the title of the ninth studio album by Californian rock band AFI (A Fire Inside). It was recorded in Los Angeles, CA, produced by Gil Norton (Foo Fighters, Jimmy Eat World, Feeder, Counting Crows and many others), engineered by Andrew Scheps and released today through Republic Records/Universal Music Group.
In a statement regarding the album, AFI frontman Davey Havok said "This record is of silence, and the burials that result from that silence. It's of betrayal, cruelty, weakness, anxiety, panic – deep and slow – despair, injury and loss. And in this it is shamefully honest and resolutely unforgiving" and added that "Burials" is "far, far less straightforward than what we did on the last record, which – much like every record we create – was the result of a natural growth, a natural indication of where we are as songwriters now".
Three singles have been already released from the new record: "I Hope You Suffer" (watch the video here), "17 Crimes" (click on the image above to watch the video) and "The Conductor".
