AFI have been working on music since the early 90s, and have remained a strong force in alternative music from hardcore punk to emo throughout their career. They influenced many of the big names in alt-rock and punk today, and they are recognisable in image as well as sound.
The acronym stands for “A Fire Inside”, but has also been said to stand for "Asking for It” and "Anthems for Insubordinates." The band formed before the members went to college, and none of them knew how to play instruments. Frontman Davey Havok has stated that he was amazed they even managed to record anything in as short a time as they did. AFI took a break as the members were in college, but thanks to the strong response they had during and after a reunion show, they decided to pursue music. They signed with Dexter Holland’s label Nitro, and released albums and EPs to great response.
As the 2000s kicked in, and alternative genres became more and more commercially successful, AFI’s releases took a more commercially sounding route. They played bigger venues, saw singles chart, and were nominated for awards, including at the MTV Music Video Awards. Over the years, AFI have lended their music to movies, ads and video games, including Guitar Hero, Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater, Underworld and The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones.
The band have released ten albums, as well as EPs and live releases, and have seen much commercial success since the turn of the millennium. Their latest album, which is self-titled and has a bracketed title - The Blood Album - was released in January, 2017.
