AFI

Although they didn't reach platinum status until 2003, hardcore punk revivalists AFI originally formed in 1991, when the band's four founding members -- vocalist Davey Havok, guitarist Markus Stopholese, bassist Vic Chalker, and drummer Adam Carson -- were attending high school in Ukiah, California. Chalker was replaced by Geoff Kresge after eight months, and the band played several local gigs and released a split 7", Dork, with fellow Ukiah natives Loose Change (a band that incidentally included future AFI member Jade Puget). An EP titled Behind the Times was released as well. The bandmembers then split up to attend different colleges, with Kresge temporarily moving to New Jersey to join Blanks 77. However, AFI reconvened during a holiday break to play a one-off reunion show, and audience response was so positive that the bandmembers decided to quit school and concentrate on music full-time.

AFI (whose abbreviation stands for "A Fire Inside") issued several singles before securing a record deal with the Nitro label, which issued the band's second album, Very Proud of Ya, in 1996. Two LPs followed in 1997 -- a re-release of their 1995 debut, Answer That & Stay Fashionable, and Shut Your Mouth & Open Your Eyes -- and personnel shifts ensued. Kresge was the first to leave, being replaced by bassist Hunter Burgan, and Stopholese departed in favor of ex-Redemption 87 guitarist Jade Puget, who then shared songwriting duties with Havok. The new lineup recorded an EP titled A Fire Inside in 1998, and issued a noticeably more mature full-length in 1999, Black Sails in the Sunset; 1999 also saw the release of the All Hallow's EP before The Art of Drowning followed a year later. Though already owning a fiercely loyal core base of fans, the latter album saw the band's music attracting an even larger audience, due in part to the moderate success of the single "Days of the Phoenix." Accordingly, it was the first album to chart in the Billboard 200.

At the onset of the new millennium, AFI hooked up with producers Jerry Finn and Garbage's Butch Vig for a new set of recording sessions. The end result was the ambitious Sing the Sorrow, AFI's major-label debut for DreamWorks, which showcased the band's significant growth since its early hardcore days. Released in 2003, the record also marked AFI's crossover into the mainstream, and Sing the Sorrow eventually went platinum as several singles found airplay on MTV. Working again with Jerry Finn (who had also produced records for blink-182 and Green Day), the band's follow-up release was its most labor-intensive to date, resulting from two years of detailed songwriting. Decemberunderground, AFI's seventh album, surfaced in 2006 on the Interscope label. The album was an instant success, debuting at number one on the Billboard charts and launching a summer-long tour, followed by a string of overseas performances in October.

While on tour, Havok and Puget dedicated their spare time to a side project that would eventually become Blaqk Audio, which they debuted in early 2007. AFI released the concert album I Heard a Voice: Live from Long Beach Arena later that same year, but the bandmates continued pursuing their own projects, with Hunter Burgan playing bass for several other bands while Jade Puget did remix work for the likes of the Cure. AFI properly reconvened in 2008 to begin writing new material; by November, they had announced their intention to begin recording with producer David Bottrill. Two months later, they traded Bottrill for a pair of new producers -- Joe McGrath and Jacknife Lee -- and continued working on the album, focusing on songs that were harder than those found on Decemberunderground. The result, Crash Love, their most straight-ahead rock record to date, was released in September 2009 and was another success, though it did not chart as highly or sell as well as the previous two albums. AFI toured extensively throughout 2010 to promote the release before going quiet for a couple of years. In 2013 they announced they would be returning with a new album, Burials, in October of that year. Produced by Gil Norton, the album was preceded by a number of singles including the thrilling, melodic pop-punk anthem "17 Crimes." ~ Steve Huey

AFI is awesome! Without a doubt. No matter if it is the early hardcore stuff or the newer straight hardrock, they never fail to deliver. And to all the haters that say they sold out the old stuff is better blah blah blah. Don't listen then.

I am absolutely in love with this band as I was when I first fell. The music reaches my soul in a way no other can.....and the progression and transition has not let me down. I can fully appreciate the change of the meaning of life, the change of the meaning of the music, the change of sound, the maturity. It's beautiful and dark and bold and I LOVE it. ��

They used to be so cool. I loved how they blended anger with melody, then they signed with Dreamworks and became a boring Emo band. I was really sad when that happened, glad I saw them live when they were still good.

Very Proud Of Ya is hands down one of their best albums. It's fun to listen to VPOY - The Art Of Drowning, 3 years of material and the sound changes are pretty radical. Especially Havok's vocals.

AFI is one of my most favorite bands ever. I discovered them thanks to Sing the Sorrow and have gone on to listen to everything. I love every single one of their albums and the fact that their sound always changes, but for the better. I hope they keep making awesome music and that I can someday see them in concert!

AFI is punk. They gave influence to a lot of bands that started in the late 90s till today. Only fucken idiots hate AFI for their so called "selling out" stage. Every artis and band change. Nothing changes from the bands hustle. Now that they are known around the world people hate AFI cause it's not there little secret band anymore. Death By Stereo did it and so did Bleeding Through, Avenge Sevenfold is also in the same boat. A band changes cause it becomes better and greater for they can share
