The first time Davey Havok heard his song on the radio he was driving through San Francisco trying to get away from the nu-metal craze. Luckily, he landed on Live 105.
Davey Havok is disappointed with his band’s latest album, ‘Burials,’ but it has nothing to do with the music.
“This record is of silence, of burials, and the burials that result from that silence,” frontman Davey Havok said of AFI’s new album. “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.”

After teasing their latest single, “I Hope You Suffer,” late last week, AFI officially announced a October 22 release date for their new album, Burials.
