My name is Jamie and I’m excited to be able to join the HQ staff and bring you all the latest news! I’ve been a fan of AFI since I was eight years old; I fell in love with their music in 2003 right after Sing the Sorrow came out and have been hooked ever since. The AFI community has been like a second family to me, it’s where I always felt accepted. I’m looking forward in providing as much news as possible for you avid readers and can’t wait to hear your thoughts!
