AFI Announce 2017 North American Tour Stop In The East Bay

By Amanda Wicks

(RADIO.COM) – The same day AFI releases their forthcoming album AFI (The Blood Album), they'll launch the first part of their headlining 2017 North American tour, The Blood Tour.

AFI kicks things off in Los Angeles on January 20th with a stop at the Fox Theater in Oakland the next day. They'll stay on the road for one month until they wrap things up in San Diego on February 20th. Every ticket comes with a free download of The Blood Album. More details can be found at AFI's website.

When it came to working on new music, the band wrote way more songs than they ended up included on their 14-track album. "Historically, we always write far beyond an album's worth of material," vocalist Davey Havok said about working together on The Blood Album. "The process of culling down approximately 60 songs to fourteen is difficult. But when we create, we do so with an honesty and a hope to satisfy our artistic needs. We were raised on albums, which had far greater impact on us than singles alone. I believe that there are still a select group who look for that same deeper musical experience that we grew up on. Our records are for those music fans."
