After teasing their latest single, “I Hope You Suffer,” late last week, AFI officially announced a October 22 release date for their new album, Burials.

The follow-up to 2009’s Crash Love was recorded in Los Angeles with producer Gil Horton, who has previously worked with the Pixies and the Foo Fighters. Though AFI has been working on the album for two years, the band managed to keep it under wraps until earlier this year when they released a series of cryptic teaser videos preceding the official album announcement.

“This record is of silence, of burials, and the burials that result from that silence,” frontman Davey Havok said in a statement. “It’s of betrayal, cruelty, weakness, anxiety, panic – deep and slow – despair, injury and loss. And in this it is shamefully honest and resolutely unforgiving.”

This darker theme is all over “I Hope You Suffer,” which features Havok singing, “I hope you suffer/ I hope you do/ Just like I suffered,” to a spurned ex-lover. Listen below.

The band will be hitting the road for a North American tour, which kicks off September 12 in Minneapolis.
