AFI Announce Fall Tour

The SoCal emo band will support their Sept. 29 release, Crash Love, with their first stateside outing since 2007.

California’s AFI, a.k.a. “Da Emo Boys”, haven’t played a show in the U.S. since 2007, but that will all change on October 2 when the band kicks off a just-announced eight-date tour in Minneapolis. The brief string of shows will support their September 29 release, Crash Love.

Joining the guyliner-sporting rockers will be England’s Gallows, a breaking punk quintet featured in our July issue.

Animal-rights activists may be mixed on the pairing. PETA recentrly named AFI lead singer Davey Havok one of today’s “sexiest vegetarians”, but the same organization pattacked Gallows for allegedly recording a pig-slaughtering. To be fair, the group later admitted they only used a recording someone else made, but that doesn’t change the fact that they thought their album needed the sweet sounds of bovine butchery.
