A.F.I. is on the road in support of its latest and most successful effort Sing The Sorrow. The band has a rare off day this Sunday (May 11) which is Mother’s Day. A.F.I. singer/songwriter Davey Havoc remembers an uncomfortable Mother’s Day on the road where the band was stranded in the middle of nowhere.

“Grand Island, Nebraska. It was a Mother’s Day, it was a Sunday,” Havoc said, recalling the memorable day. “And we were stuck in the middle of the tour and our van broke and we had to turn the van in and put all of our equipment and all our stuff in the mini-van. ‘Happy Mother’s Day, Mom. We’re stuck in Nebraska.'”

A.F.I. plays Washington, D.C.’s 9:30 Club on Monday (May 12). The tour ends May 26 in Camden, New Jersey.

A.F.I.’s first single “Girl’s Not Grey” is at Number Nine on the Radio & Records Alternative chart.
