Summers and shudders

I’ve been a huge AFI fan for forever but the summer that December underground came out I was a freshman in high school. My best friend bought the album and we listened to it on repeat ALL summer. The first listen through that album I’ll never forget, we were laying on her bed encapsulated by this amazing album and I knew my whole life was going to change. The next morning was my first day at band camp. The entire week of band camp I had to listen to summer shudder every single day over and over. It reminds me of her and my freshman week at band camp to this day. She lost her life to an overdose in 2020. Under the summer rain, I burned away. Under the summer rain, you turned away.
