AFI (A Fire Inside) is an American punk rock band. AFI was formed in 1991 by Davey Havok (vocals), Mark Blackwelder (guitar), Vic Chalker (bass) and Adam Carson (drums) in Ukiah, California. Bassist Vic lost interest and was replaced by Geoff Kresge. Kresge left the AFI to be part of the band Tiger Army and the spot was filled by Hunter Burgan. Eventually, guitarist Mark Blackwelder was replaced by Jade Puget.
