Where To Start With…AFI
After a mini-hiatus that has seen AFI take some much needed downtime and the California goth punks return this week with new studio album Burials.
Formed in 1991, AFI have released a full nine albums over their 22-year career, ranging from their 1995 ska punk-flecked debut Answer That And Stay Fashionable to 2009’s ornate Crash Love.
If you’re only just discovering Davey Havok and the boys, then you’ve got a lot of catching up to do. So, as a public service, here are five tracks to help you get started:
4 - 'Girl's Not Grey'
This appeared in 2003 as the first taste of the band’s major label debut Sing The Sorrow and sums up AFI’s take on punk rock perfectly. Featuring a dynamite guitar line and a chorus that just makes you want to punch the air in triumph, this track also features one of the coolest drum rolls you will ever have the pleasure of hearing.
