With CRASH LOVE, the forthcoming album from AFI, due out in just twenty days and “Medicate” climbing the radio charts, the band is giving fans a preview of another track off the new record as well as a behind-the-scenes look at the recording process. For the song “I Am Trying Very Hard To Be Here” AFI enlisted the help of their fans for the track’s gang vocals. Staying true to form AFI went to their fans, the backbone of the band, and asked them to submit short videos about themselves for a chance to win a trip to Los Angeles and to sing on one of the songs from CRASH LOVE. Fans heard the call, and they answered and thus the Begin Transmission series was born. Watch as AFI welcomes six fans into the studio to record “I Am Trying Very Hard To Be Here” from CRASH LOVE, in stores September 29.
AFI has also just launched their newly redesigned website, www.AFireInside.net, with gold artwork reflecting the forthcoming release. Fans can now connect with the band via Twitter from the site as well as get the latest news, photos, video, tour dates and more. For even more from AFI fans can also visit www.MySpace.com/AFI and www.facebook.com/AFireInside. Pre-order CRASH LOVE now on iTunes and receive AFI’s latest single, “Medicate.”
