AFI is set to play Riot Fest in Chicago’s Humbolt Park in September alongside Rancid, Blondie, Quicksand, Black Flag, Bad Religion, Bob Mould, Brand New and many others. The festival runs through the 13th, 14th and 15th and starts at 23 bucks a day. 3 day and VIP pass are available now starting at $69.98. Purchase tickets here.
Tonight Davey will be on an episode of Last Call with Carson Daly to discuss his current book Pop Kids. The episode will air on your local NBC channel at 1:30 am est/12:30 central. Check your local listings for more info.
AFI has posted a new photo to their Instagram page, this time featuring the silhouette of a person within a larger symbol. The symbol follows the first symbol posted to Instagram last week, which was captioned “Convergence” and was followed by a video of the same title.
The photo appears with the caption “No Harbingers.”
AFI has posted a second video on their website, following the first video they posted on April 17. It turns out that the photo they Instagramed yesterday is partially a still from this video.
The video includes several different clips, including a woman, a hooded figure, and what might be a sphere eclipsing a light source. There is also an alarm at 55 seconds in that could be from an aircraft or similar machine. What do you think?
AFI fired up an Instagram account shortly after their webpage afireinside.net was updated in mid April. The Instagram account sat inactive until around 10 pm EST on May 1 when a new symbol was uploaded with the caption “Convergence.”
For those keeping track, that’s three symbols that have been shared by the band in relation to the video released on April 17. The image was tweeted out by Hunter, and has since received hundreds of favorites and comments from fans and followers on Instagram, as well as a handful of favorites and retweets on Twitter. Nothing about the symbols, their meaning, or the video has been confirmed by the band.
Alternative Press Magazine has interviewed Davey about his book, Pop Kids. They also discussed his future writing plans and acting desires. As for AFI, he is still keeping quiet while playing into the mystery and video. You can read the interview here.
Interesting mentions include Spring Breakers, Adventure Time, Spiderman, Zac Efron, James Franco, Shia LaBeouf, and Disney.
