AFI have never been strangers to the darker side of things, as clearly evident from the shadowy packaging and artwork of their latest EP, The Missing Man. However, what I’ve always admired about this band is the silver linings found in their music. After releasing arguably their darkest-toned LP to date in 2013’s Burials, they followed this effort with 2017’s AFI: The Blood Album, an album that incorporated many of their past styles into a single record. On this EP, AFI has found a way to pay homage to the path they blazed before, while still adding new elements to their trademark sound.

AFI have posted up a Sing the Sorrow anniversary bundle on their store:
It’s hard to believe that 15 years have passed since the release of our sixth studio album, Sing the Sorrow. Since then, we’ve released four albums and are fortunate enough to have you awaiting all of those to come. In recognition of this milestone, we have created a Sing the Sorrow anniversary bundle, complete with a t-shirt, tote bag, and poster – all in the spirit of the era.
This album holds up surprisingly well. I’d be down for a vinyl repress.
