AFI's management have issued a statement denying reports that the band have split up.

Earlier this afternoon (September 8), a post appeared on the band's official Despairfaction forum which appeared to come from frontman Davey Havok and which said that the band had split up, but their management have now said this is a hoax.

Posting on the Facebook page of the band's fan site Facebook.com/AFINewsHQ, the short statement reads as follows:

AFI did not break up. That's not Dave. The band haven't broken up. Someone is just screwing around. We repeat, AFI is not breaking up!



A more detailed statement about the hoax will be posted later today.
