I was very young when I was introduced to AFI. For me, it was the very lucky summer of 2000 when my friends and I stumbled upon the band playing at our very first warped tour. I was instantly entralled by the band’s intensity and the power of the lyrics. Those words, album after album, have come with me on a journey of healing. I will forever be greatful to the band for helping me to better understand myself, for lessening the feelings of isolation, and helping/encouraging me to ever press forward.
