November 4, 2004 - AFI RETROSPECTIVE OUT NOW
AFI RETROSPECTIVE FROM NITRO YEARS

Today AFI is one of the most lauded, rising young bands as their latest album Sing the Sorrow teeters on platinum status. But what about yesterday? The band honed its sound during its tenure with Nitro Records starting in the midñ90ís. Now, Nitro has just released AFI, a 13-track retrospective showcasing music from all six releases the band recorded for the label.

For fans that recently discovered AFI through Sing The Sorrow, this collection is an essential and immediate introduction into the bandís recorded history. And for the early initiated, the new set includes rare tracks such as, "A Winterís Tale," a UK exclusive on The Days Of The Phoenix EP, limited to a pressing of 1000, and "Lower It," a song recorded during the Black Sails In The Sunset sessions and included only on the vinyl release of the album.

More than a decade has passed since AFI first formed in Ukiah, CA. The band line-up includes singer Davey Havok, guitarist Jade Puget, bassist Hunter and drummer Adam Carson.

The band made its Nitro debut in 1996 with Very Proud of Ya followed by Answer That and Stay Fashionable (re-release, 1997), and Shut Your Mouth And Open Your Eyes in 1997. Other releases include, the now classic, Black Sails In The Sunset (1999), the All Hallowís EP (1999), and The Art Of Drowning (2000).
