AFI Showcase Invincible Nature of Youth in ’17 Crimes’ Video
Oh to be 17 again! AFI reflect on the days of youth with their new video for ‘17 Crimes,’ which features four teens happening upon a house that’s under construction and making it the home for their adventures.
With Davey Havok belting, “Let’s love, like 17 / I’m in love with your poisoning / Only bring your pretty frightful gifts to me / Let’s love and kill like 17,” the visuals provided by the youths showcase the passions, curiosity and invincible feelings that many experience at that point in their life.
In addition to the storyline, which follows the foursome through some adventurous exploits and a date with a branding iron that will signify their bond, the band perform in the same abandoned home and play with the same unabashed passion that their video counterparts display.
’17 Crimes’ is featured on AFI’s upcoming album, ‘Burials.’ The disc is currently available for pre-order at this location and those who choose this option will receive an MP3 download of ’17 Crimes’ immediately.
