    Punk/rock legends, AFI, have revealed a new offering from their upcoming album, a sombre track titled Tied To A Tree.  The forthcoming album Bodies will drop on 11th June - the perfect date considering this is their eleventh studio album - and also marks 30 years since the band's inception in 1991.

    AFI's unshakeable connection with their audience is a testament to the band's knack for reinvention, renewal, and exploration, anchored by an unblemished authenticity. AFI songs are embedded in the spiritual DNA of a legion of supporters and Bodies is further demonstration of AFI's unwavering commitment to artistic exploration, a dark conjuration of an uncapturable muse.

    The album was produced by the band's own Jade Puget, mixed by Tony Hoffer (M83, Phoenix, Silversun Pickups), and mastered by Vlado Meller (Oasis, Pink Floyd).”

    The band initially summoned a steady subcultural groundswell in the mid-90s, devoid of careerist ambitions. The band first made music as teenaged misfits in an obscure Northern California town, steadily assembling a dense catalog over the years marked by its diversity and authenticity.

    "AFI is such an integral part of who I am. What we do with AFI together is a foundation for me," explains frontman Davey Havok. "Coming back is a return to a home I've always known."

    It's a sentiment shared by the entire band. "I couldn’t do what I do in AFI in any other place," observes guitarist Jade Puget. "Davey and I have written songs together for over 20 years now. I couldn't find the thing he and I have together anywhere else, nor the thing the four of us have when we come together. AFI is home for me and will always be that." 

    The platinum success of AFI's 2003 album, Sing the Sorrow blazed a path for a generation of hardcore-punk weaned bands to similarly crossover. 2006's Decemberunderground upended expectations again and earned AFI a second platinum plaque.

    Bodies will be out on 11th June. Pre-order it here and check out the haunting new single, Tied To A Tree, below.
