About AFI

Formed in 1991 in Ukiah CA, AFI put in well over a decade of blood, sweat, recording and touring before their mainstream breakthrough with 2003's platinum Sing The Sorrow, which featured the VMA-winning "Girl's Not Grey." The subsequent DECEMBERUNDERGROUND elevated AFI even further, debuting at #1 in June 2006, going platinum in short order, and featuring the singles "Miss Murder" and "Love Like Winter" both of which the band performed on Saturday Night Live in January 2007. The band is currently on tour in support of its eighth full length studio album, Crash Love, which was released in September 2009.
