Limited edition red and black pinwheel vinyl

Celebrating 20 years since the original album release!

The album that took AFI from hardcore to generation-defining rock band!

AFI's platinum-selling sixth album, new one-time pressing for this exclusive reissue from ThinkIndie. Only 20,000 copies of the album were originally pressed on vinyl, and it's been out of print for years.

At the end of March of 2003, 50 Cent's Get Rich or Die Tryin' sat atop the Billboard album chart for its fourth week. Right below it were three other recent chart-toppers it had dethroned: Norah Jones' Come Away With Me, R. Kelly's Chocolate Factory, and Dixie Chicks' Home. And coming in at No. 5 was a surprise hit from a band that had never been seen around these parts before, AFI, with their major label debut Sing the Sorrow. The album had come out on March 11, following the success of its lead single "Girl's Not Grey" on rock radio. The song's surrealistic, David Slade-directed music video — which went on to win a VMA — showed off the band and their eyeliner-wearing frontman Davey Havok, whose aesthetic would get AFI grouped with burgeoning bands like The Used and My Chemical Romance as mainstream media began conflating the words "goth" and "emo."

But those comparisons were surface-level, and AFI were already seasoned vets compared to most of the bands they were getting compared to. Sing the Sorrow served as so many people's introduction to AFI, but it was an album they'd been working toward for more than a decade.
