But keeping true to Corgan tradition, every album is it's own little unique island onto itself, heartfelt powerful somewhat feminine vocals that I can totally get into without feeling awkward, and yeah, I'm not ashamed to admit I do love a bit of melodic punk on a Tuesday night
They even have a handful of new wave & electronic songs that are pretty solid.
This tour announcement was the first time I ever heard of AFI, not sure if I slept through their time or if they never made it in Europe.
They are not part of the lineup for the Chicago gig of this tour, would they be a significant boost for ticket sales? I have no idea, and I wonder if it would make a difference because that venue has a capacity of 28k and already started making sure that it's not 70% empty by dropping hundreds of free tickets, in early April no less.
