AFI’s forthcoming ‘Crash Love’ will receive an exclusive first airing in its entirety on MySpace (www.myspace.com/afi) on September 22 and 23. The full album will also be up for listening at the band’s own www.afireinside.net site a day later.

‘Crash Love’ will be released September 29 on DGC/Interscope. First single “Medicate,” for which the band is currently shooting a video, is already available on iTunes both as a single download and as part of an 18-song ‘Crash Love’ deluxe edition featuring multiple bonus tracks both from the ‘Crash Love’ sessions and the AFI vaults.

AFI recently added another leg of dates to its first series of live shows in the U.S. since its July 7, 2007 Live Earth appearance. The tour commences October 2 in Minneapolis with additional dates running up through a November 22 appearance at Stubbs Amphitheater in Austin, TX. Produced by Joe McGrath and Jacknife Lee, ‘Crash Love’ is AFIs eighth album and arguably the bands most focused, direct and ambitious effort to date.
