AFI Ready To Rock The U.S.

With just about six weeks to go until the release of AFI’s new album, the rock band announces a U.S. tour to go along with it. The January-February outing also includes gigs in Vancouver and Toronto.

AFI’s self-titled album – the band’s 10th overall – is due out Jan. 20 through Concord Music Group. The LP is referred to as The Blood Album as a nod to the cover art, which features drops of blood.

The rockers close out 2016 with an appearance at KROQ Almost Acoustic Christmas at the Forum in Inglewood, Calif., Dec. 10.
