It’s been a few years since we last heard from AFI, but the veteran rockers are ready to roll once again. The band has been in the studio over the last few months and they’re currently putting the final touches on their ninth studio album. Even better news for fans is that after completing their most recent record deal, the band has found a new home for their upcoming release — Republic Records.

The label will offer the still-untitled effort this fall. “We are thrilled to be joining the Republic family for the release of our ninth record,” said Havok in a statement. “We’ve spent over two years realizing this album and could not be more excited to share it with all.”

Earlier in the spring, the band began teasing their return with a series of cryptic videos, with the most obvious one signifying their return shows Davey Havok walking down a long hallway to a stage in slow motion before he and the group rock out. That clip hinted that a September return was in order, but it is not known if that means for the new album, which is slated for “fall,” or just their appearances at Riot Fest shows in Chicago and Denver, which are both taking place in September.

The group is looking to rebound after taking a downturn with their 2009 release, ‘Crash Love.’ The band did just get some good news as their ‘Decemberunderground’ album was certified platinum for sales, which is definitely an accomplishment in the current music climate. Keep an eye out for more from AFI in the coming months.
