AFI have unveiled a mesmerizing new video for the single “White Offerings,” from their forthcoming and tenth LP AFI (The Blood Album).
The dramatic and powerful performance clip drenched in a white backdrop premiered via Rolling Stone.
“Yeah, number 10 is a milestone,” says guitarist Jade Puget from his home in Los Angeles about The Blood Album. “We’re in double digits, which is pretty cool. I’m really excited for it to come out—it’s been a long time in the making. It’s big for us because we don’t put out a record every year, so it’s taken a long time to get to this point.”
AFI (The Blood Album) will release Jan. 20. Here's another single from the record, “Snow Cats”:
Why the AFI and The Blood Album combination for the title? On the decision, Puget says, “Originally, we wanted just have it self-titled because it’s been 10 records and AFI has never had a self-titled record. But because the album artwork has these three blood drops on the front, we just started calling it The Blood Album. So people started thinking it was the actual title, and because we didn’t want to confuse anyone, we made it official.”
