AFI – 17 Crimes (Single) ★★★☆☆


AFI have been on the scene a LONG time, and that’s due in no small part to their ability to morph and transform their sound, but maintain their signature cathartic feel.

The video depicts a disenfranchised group of twenty-something’s getting up to mischief in an empty house, whilst AFI perform amongst the remodelling plastic sheets. Pretty cool. Drums gallop and Davey Havok keeps up the pace with his instantly recognisable power-throat.

Title lyric “let’s love, like 17…let’s love, and kill like 17 now” rings Decemberunderground bells, and boy are we glad to hear those! Above all though, this finely crafted tune shows a cheerier version of AFI, but don’t worry, they’re still goff on the inside.


New album ‘Burials’ is due on the 22nd of October.
