The Bodies Tour 2022 will make a stop in Las Vegas on February 12, 2022 with support from fellow goth band Cold Cave, at the newly renovated and world-class Theater at Virgin Hotels Las Vegas.

On June 11, 2021, the band released their highly anticipated 11th studio album, Bodies. Critics have hailed Bodies as ranking high in AFI’s body of work, with the likes of SPIN praising the band for “fusing some experimental new steps into the tried and true AFI formula,” and calling their music “one of the most distinct and recognizable sounds today.”
Kerrang! praised the band’s continual inventiveness, saying that “Throughout, even during the more familiar-sounding songs, keyboards and electronic beats pop up, leaving the whole thing with a feeling of gutter-glitter that underlines Davey’s intent with the soul of it.”
AFI’s unshakeable connection with their audience is a testament to the band’s knack for reinvention, renewal, and exploration, anchored by an unblemished authenticity. AFI songs are embedded in the spiritual DNA of a legion of supporters and Bodies is further demonstration of AFI’s unwavering commitment to artistic exploration, a dark conjuration of an uncapturable muse. T
he album was produced by the band’s own Jade Puget, mixed by Tony Hoffer (M83, Phoenix, Silversun Pickups), and mastered by Vlado Meller (Oasis, Pink Floyd).
