Singles "Miss Murder" and "Love Like Winter" are still played in heavy rotation by rock stations -- mostly of the satellite radio variety -- which is quite impressive considering the tracks are over three years old and have to compete with a million bands that sound like Deathcab for Cutie on Vicodin.

The band's eighth studio album "Crash Love" is out Sept.

All Music awarded the album 4 out of 5 stars, saying the "core of AFI's sound never strays too far from what listeners have grown to love about them in the first place." Rolling Stone awarded the album 3 out of 5 stars, one less star than their review of Sing the Sorrow, and claimed that "something isn't right in the world of AFI," because of their pop-rock musical structure "that would be at home on the soundtrack to the next Spider-Man movie".

The new straight edge, hardcore band XTRMST featuring AFI’s lead vocalist and guitarist Davey Havok and Jade Puget, have released their first music video “Conformist.” The video made its debut on Noisey and is their first single from their self-titled debut album.

The music video is an allegory to the song’s title “Conformist.” It features a group in red and white spandex suits, weapons and violence.

The red suit group assaults the single white suit person violently until the white suit becomes red and joins the violent crowd.

29, and Davey Havok knows there's pressure to live up to past success. I spoke with the glam frontman about that, mustaches, video games, surviving Catholic school and more last week.

What was the process like of going into the studio and recording a new album after "Decemberunderground's" amazing success? We spent nine months writing the record - a process which [left us with] 60 songs.

I mean the radio stations I listen to play songs off it like it just came out.

You know, I don't listen to the stations that play my band, but my friend said [that's true] he said they still play "Love Like Winter" and "Miss Murder." I mean that'd be great if we could continue to be staples of alt-rock radio. Any pressure on you guys for more hit singles with "Crash Love?

The album was supported by three singles, "Miss Murder", "Love Like Winter" and "The Missing Frame".
