It might have been a couple years since we last heard from AFI (A Fire Inside), but that doesn’t mean that the band hasn’t been busy. They just signed onto a new record label, Republic Records, and plan on releasing their ninth studio album, titled Burials, which according to Rolling Stone Magazine, should be available October 22.

“We are thrilled to be joining the Republic family for the release of our ninth record. We’ve spent over two years realizing this album and could not be more excited to share it with all,” AFI frontman Davey Havok said in a recent press release.

The group has already released the first single from the album “I Hope You Suffer,” which you can check out below.

“I really feel [the title] speaks of the overall sentiment of the record. The album really speaks of a burial of a silence and the burials that result from those silences of panic and anxiety and betrayal and cruelty – and a loss of self, a loss of stability” Havok said.

AFI won’t be sitting idly by until the new album though; they are scheduled for the Riot Fest & Carnival in Chicago on September 13, 14, and 15, if you’re interested. And if you’re not totally boycotting Rolling Stone magazine, Havok did a complete interview discussing the album and how it turned into what it is right now.
