AFI's Hunter Burgan recently spoke with Blender about the band's forthcoming album and what we can expect:

We've been working on it in the studio or writing it for like a year and half. We've done an extensive amount of demo-ing, more so than we've ever done in the past. This is definitely more of a rock album--more immediate and definitely more of a focused, direct approach musically. Compared to [2006's] Decemberunderground, where some of the songs were more subtle, these are more in-your-face.

Hunter also promises a summer tour, regardless of whether the album is done.
