This summer, emo rock heavyweights AFI and Circa Survive will bring angst and ecstasy to fans at Red Rocks Amphitheatre in Morrison, Colorado. Both bands have proven they're alive and well with recent successful tours and releases. AFI has been touring in support their tenth album AFI (The Blood Album) and will soon make stops at The National in Richmond, Virginia on June 2, The NorVA in Norfolk, Virginia on June 6 and Starland Ballroom in New Jersey on June 18.
Circa Survive is currently touring for the tenth anniversary of their seminal sophomore album On Letting Go, which featured hits including "The Difference Between Medicine and Poison is in the Dose” and "The Greatest Lie." The Philly-based rock outfit are revisiting the album with feelings of celebration and nostalgia. “I imagine it would be like finding your diary from 10 years ago,” vocalist Anthony Green recently told OC Weekly. “In a lot of ways, it’s like our collective diaries from 10 years ago. We were all going through such weird stuff that made it on to this album, so going back and revisiting it is pretty therapeutic. It’s been like a big celebration for it. It’s almost like having a birthday party for it.”
