Alternative rock outfit AFI have announced that they will be back in 2016 after a period of inactivity. Bassist Hunter Burgan took to his website to let fans know of the bands return and you can find out what he had to say below:
‘ hope everyone is having a wonderful December so far. ‘Tis the season for giving, and we here at hunterburgan.com (in other words, me) have kicked the season off by giving a sealed copy of AFI’s Sing The Sorrow double LP on red vinyl to one lucky winner, Kristen Reynolds of San Antonio, Texas. Congrats, Kristen! Thank you to everyone who entered the giveaway. Better luck next time!
I have been getting a lot of great feedback on my Cat With Matches comic. Thanks! I’m glad you like it. I really enjoy drawing that cat and all his misadventures. As you may know, I printed up Cat With Matches t-shirts and stickers and have them available in the store. If there are other types of CWM items you’d like to see, let me know in the comments here or on any form of social media.
I know that many of you want to know what’s up with AFI. I can’t tell you much at the moment, but we have plans for 2016. Circle that year on your calendars’.
After getting into alternative music during the mid 90s with the rise of nu-metal and pop-punk, I’ve gradually spread my interests far and wide and have a real love for metalcore, prog metal and tech metal. Amongst other things, I am a husband, father of two amazing kids, heavy metal DJ, and video game/book/nerd enthusiast!
