AFI Release 'I Hope You Suffer' Video

(Radio.com) After gracing fans with new song "I Hope You Suffer," AFI has released the music video for the first single from Burials, the band's first full-length in four years (out Oct. 22).

"It is certainly embarrassingly so a very dark album, especially in its candidness, which is something, to be honest, that's disappointing to me," lead singer Davey Havok told Rolling Stone regarding Burials. "It's something I just keep coming back to I can't escape it."

The stark, black and white clip for "I Hope You Suffer" features Havok and the band performing the intense, slow-burning new song amidst billowing plumes of smoke.

"To me, Crash Love [the band's 2009 album] is the most stripped-down record that we've made since the early '90s, and I would say that 'I Hope You Suffer' is indicative of the overall tone of this record in being the opposite of that," Havoc continued in the RS interview. "I feel like [AFI member] Jade [Puget] came with a complete piece of music with that song. Jade is really a genius with the riffs and the layers and the soundscapes, and that's what really creates the tone of that song."

AFI has scheduled a slew of North American tour dates to coincide with the band's new album, kicking off on September 12 in Minneapolis, Minnesota. Check out the video and tour dates.
