AFI have released a video for their song White Offerings.

It’s lifted from their forthcoming 10th album, AFI (The Blood Album), which arrives on January 20. Watch the black-and-white clip below.

Frontman Davey Havok tells Rolling Stone: “It’s certainly an uncomfortable song, so to bring a little discomfort to the viewer is certainly a positive thing, even if it’s just from having to look at me look at you – which is always uncomfortable.”

AFI revealed in July that they were working on the follow-up to 2013’s Burials, which was produced by guitarist Jade Puget and drummer Adam Carson at Megawatt Studios in Los Angeles. They had released a 30-second cryptic teaser which came after the band ‘blacked out’ their profile and cover photos on Facebook.

Their singles Snow Cats and White Offerings are available to download now via iTunes, while the 14-track album is available for pre-order.

AFI will perform at Los Angeles’ KROQ FM’s Almost Acoustic Christmas show on December 10, with several tour dates scheduled through 2017.
