AFI make public a music video in companion to their new single entitled "Medicate" on Yahoo. In the Paul Minor-directed video, the band are seen rocking out in front of a large projection of their performance footage towering in the background.
"Medicate" is the first single coming from AFI's latest studio album "Crash Love". Also included as a playable track in video game "Guitar Hero 5", the song peaked at number 10 on Billboard Alternative Songs chart since making its way out in August.
"Crash Love" itself has been made available for U.S. purchase since September 29. "I would really describe this as a rock record, a really straightforward rock record. I don't think we've ever recorded one of those before, we've released hardcore record and we've released very multi-layered alt-rock records but this is the most straightforward rock record I think we've ever written so for us that is another matter of progression," frontman Davey Havok told Punknews.
