12:09 p.m.: AP has confirmed that the statement AFI News HQ received is official.
11:55 a.m.: Official fansite AFI HQ have talked to the band’s management, who said “That’s not dave. The band haven’t broken up. Someone is just screwing around.”
This is the end. Sorry, but AFI is done.
After more than 15 years of being together, we as a band have decided to disband A.F.I.
Me and Jade will still continue the Blaqk Audio project but there will be no more A.F.I albums or shows. We have matured and have other things in life that we would like to attend to. Please forgive us for the random statement but it was something we were thinking of for a while.
We will post a more detailed statement soon, keep your eyes peeled!
