AFI has announced a co-headlining tour with CIRCA SURVIVE that will kick off July 18th at The Tabernacle in Atlanta, GA with Citizen supporting. The dates extend the second leg of “The Blood Tour,” which kicks off June 2nd at The National in Richmond, VA. Prior to these North American shows, AFI will head overseas for a trio of UK shows with Deftones (see full itinerary below).

AFI (vocalist Davey Havok, guitarist Jade Puget, bassist Hunter Burgan and drummer Adam Carson) recently shared the stage with Morrissey, Cage The Elephant and The Descendents at the When We Were Young Fest in Santa Ana, CA. About their set, Buzzbands wrote, “the reliably explosive AFI charged the crowd with energy and inspired big sing-alongs” and the OC Register called the band’s performance a festival highlight, spotlighting “the sizzling energy of AFI’s alternative rock.”

The band is touring in support of their critically acclaimed new release, AFI (The Blood Album) (Concord), which hit No. 1 on Billboard’s Alternative and Hard Rock Albums Charts and No. 5 on The Billboard 200. It’s the band’s second consecutive Top 10 Billboard debut following 2013’s Burials. AFI (The Blood Album) is available on iTunes and Amazon.

The band revealed the album in stages: Stereogum premiered “Get Hurt” (which was also spotlighted on “Best of the Week with Zane Lowe” on Beats 1), Pitchfork debuted the “Snow Cats” video, Rolling Stone launched “White Offerings” and NME introduced “Aurelia.” In between, AFI performed at KROQ’s Almost Acoustic Christmas show, where they delivered what Billboard called “arguably the strongest set of the night.” They tore through “Snow Cats” on Jimmy Kimmel Live!, kicked off their headlining tour of North America with a sold-out show at the Troubadour in West Hollywood, then wrapped it with two sold-out nights at The Wiltern in Los Angeles.

Alternative Press and Q gave AFI (The Blood Album) 4 stars each, AV Club said it sounded like the band are “as fired up now as they were 25 years ago,” People magazine made it a Pick of the Week, Kerrang called it a “serious contender” for the Best Albums of 2017 list, The 405 praised it as “their strongest album in a decade” and ABC News gave it 3.5 stars and described it as “a dynamic record that should please both old and new fans of the band.”
