AFI Unleash Haunting New Single ‘I Hope You Suffer’

After several months of teasing with cryptic video clips, we’re not getting our first taste of new AFI music. Davey Havok and the boys have been holed up in the studio working on the follow-up to ‘Crash Love’ and their first new song off the upcoming disc is titled ‘I Hope You Suffer.’

As expected with a title like that, the song does tend to skew on the dark side. Adam Carson’s ominous drums and some pending doom keyboard work from Jade Puget really sets a tone before Havok unleashes some inner angst with the repetitive chorus, “I hope you do / I hope you suffer.” The song also includes a melodic breakdown in which Havok sings about seeing his darkest days, seemingly exercising some demons through song.

‘I Hope You Suffer’ is currently streaming via the band’s website (as well as in the player below), but will be available everywhere via Republic Records on July 23. It’s featured on the band’s still-untitled album, which is expected this fall.

The group spent months working on the release with producer Gil Norton and were said to be putting the final touches on the effort in late June. This will be AFI’s first offering as part of their new deal with Republic Records.
