Boy, I'm slippin, I should have been the first to post this but here's our new video for Beautiful Thieves, if you haven't seen it yet.
We shot it at this insane Greek Revival mansion in the middle of nowhere. It's owned by a strange sort of recluse woman and her various animals. Nick 13 came to hang out and I have a picture of him petting a horse.



By the way, I just wanted to say that this last leg of touring, Petaluma to Las Vegas, was stellar. You guys really brought the love and made it great for us. Thank you.

I love this video. You have no idea how often I wish I could poison the stuck up idiots I deal with every day. Jealous! One question, though: how did Davey end up in that room where you guys remove the black bag from his head? There's no explanation for that...

What, you're not going to post the picture of Nick 13? Disappointing!

Glass Spider Webs said...

The video is great =] I fully enjoyed it. Especially the dirty look you give the drunk guy. xD

Was Nick 13 petting the basement horse ? o_O

Margie said...

No, thank you for making such amazing music and jaw dropping performances! <3

Haras said...

Petalumaaaaaaa <3 You guys put on a really awesome show. Good job.

phillfxc said...

Aww! I'm glad touring was good, I tried my best to make it awsome in tulsa! I'm sure it was pretty lame compared to places like vegas tho!

Lina said...

I liked this video! I loved the shot of that man with lipstick on his face ;].

Yana said...

I've seen it on veronicasawyer.com... I couldn't watch it on MTV because I live outside the US. :(
But it's an amazing video! I totally love it!

GermaricanMix said...

I really do love that video. Very beautifully shot. And I'll be seeing you guys in march at the Bamboozle Left festival. Not a fan of festivals but you guys are worth it. Can't wait!

I watched the video about 80 million times, and I continue to watch it like everyday because I recorded it to my DVR, ;D Come to Michigan again!

CorrosiveDreams said...

I know someone else is gonna say it before me, but you look superpissed at the drunk guy that touches your shoulder. I guess I would be too. Be happy he died at the end, you got your ultimate revenge!

Excellent video, excellent tour. Have fun in Japan and Australia!

Christina said...

:D
Haha, I'm gonna go now and wait for my tour date!

Davi said...

This video is pretty wonderful, and definitely one of, if not the, best you've done. All of the boys look amazing, as always, and I'm having fun trying to figure it out. :)

Mandy said...

I want a giant house filled with strange, random animals.

Sweet video. I can tell you and that guy at the bar are good friends.

leaden.skies said...

...loved the video!

Dezzo :) said...

come to mexicoo!! we miss you!



btw you are reaaaally cute :3 i wish i could find someone like you!

Christy Crawley said...

Care to post that picture? There was a big idea on the DF boards that because of the whole "petting a horse" thing, Basement Horse was going to show up in the video. XD

By the way, I really got a laugh out of your deadpan expression with the drunk man. That was awesome! Haha, you make my life Jade!

Shy Girls Win said...

I LOVE this music video! I especially love when that guy puts his hand on your shoulder and you give him that dirty look! I just bought the Crash Love expanded edition album on iTunes, along with Answer That and Stay Fashionable and The Art of Drowning. When my account had 0.09 in it, I realized that the 'Beautiful Thieves' video was released yester- oh, well its 2 in the morning so about two days ago. Now I'm going to come back here eveytime I wanna watch that video until I can buy another iTunes card. Well, I guess this is goodnight! Oh, and when I got to Orlando Florida in April I REALLY hope I can see you guys in concert!

Kitsune said...

Saw you in Santa Cruz, the show was seriously the best I've seen of you guys yet! Please keep up the good energy, continue finding great bands to tour with, and come back as soon as possible! <3

Addie said...

My personal favorite part of the video is the righteous angry glare you give that drunk guy that comes up to you. So much rage!

Thanks a lot for Petaluma, dude. Fucking incredible show and definitely worth flying out to. Stoked as hell for the Nashville show!

(and thanks for minneapolis, columbus, cincinatti and chicago too!)

(And thanks for playing despair factor in chicago via my friend aaron and my request/giving us both picks during the show! You rule!)

linkreeves said...

oooh Jade!!! U guys were incredible in Vegas and I was so lucky to be there. Thanks for making my rough vacation in Vegas worth it.

lezah said...

Horse? It might have been basement horse in disguise....

See you in two weeks at Soundwave and the Sydney Sideshow!

janicethemenace said...

Love the video!Vegas was wonderful! Best since Troubadour!AFI + Despair Faction = Ge•stalt n. pl. ge•stalts or Ge•stalts A physical, biological, psychological, or symbolic configuration or pattern of elements so unified as a whole that its properties cannot be derived from a simple summation of its parts.

helen099 said...

wow, a whole bunch of people died in this one!

you all looked gorgeous. adam wouldn't wear the shoes, huh? good for him.

♥♥

Ligeia said...

A poison party--how kinky.

Lets see this picture of nick 13 lol

Cassii Mitchell said...

Nice. Now I want to see this picture of Nick 13 and the horse.

I'm kind of disappointed by the plot line of the music video (seriously? Davey spiking drinks?), but it was okay as far as most music videos go, though it doesn't really put a good impression on AFI out there (Sorry, not trying to bite your moment there).

Who knew how much money you get by going to church and telling the bishop that you refuse Satan and all that crap? (Cassii's rich in Canada, she's gonna go pick up her copy of CexCells and stop talking in third person).

"sorry, we're unable to offer this video to users in your region"

Karlye said...

The video is great Jade! Perhaps it would have been a little better if some of those horses had been running around poisoning peoples' drinks with Davey.

It was great seeing you guys at the Reno and Las Vegas shows! Can't wait to see you guys here again. And thank YOU for bringing the love as well Jade.

Katherine said...

hey, that wasnt nice guys

Noise Electric said...

Deeeaaaaad yuppies aren't much fun... :D

Cool vid, mate. You guys always seem to shoot your vids in the coolest places...and you all look good too. Thanx for posting that.

Have fun on the rest of your tour. No illnesses or injuries, please.

ElenaNo2Meat said...

Saw you at the petaluma & vegas show, amazing.. in fact you saw me at the vegas show as well.. in handcuffs : / I wrote you on myspace and posted a blog on here explaining that situation hoping any of you guys would see it- I hope you get to read either of them, it means alot to me.

Sara said...

Dang MTV never lets us Canadians see anything. Watched a preview on youtube and it looks interestin'

Anonymous said...

Jade can I ask you one Question.

Does AFI dislike Canadians?

Can you guys please (begging on my knees) Please post this video in a format that is available in my region! (not a question a demand!) :p love you (AFI as a whole). peace v(^-^)

Miss Gwen said...

Why the f did she put a bag on Daveys' head?...

Let's see the picture of Nick 13!!

Anonymous said...

that's quite a video jade.
i'm curious: Are you and Davey still straight edge? That looks like alcohol at the party?

btw: A commenter here has my actual name as their username. My name is Yana and one of the comments here has a username as Yana and it's not me.

Limbo McLaurin said...

Are you aware that you have a Brad Pitt look-alike in you video?
Love the concept though, so well put together and the ending is great!

Anticipation more amazing videos for this album

Obsolete said...

santa cruz melted my face off then on then off again.

The video is awesome! You guys never cease to amaze! But I have to say... that picture of Nick 13 needs to be posted!

k17 said...

nerpal said...

nick13onahorse.com? Like ricktalifeonahorse.com

Emme said...

JADE YOU GUYS WERE EPIC IN VEGAS AND I WAS THERE!!!

Not to worry I saw the video on MTV hitlist the morning it aired. Nice and durty indeed.

The whole thing was nicely played out

JarJar said...

I loved the video love your guys new style. It's awesome love how you guys change style like every album. Man I wish I could have saw you guys but I had a sick neice when you came here to Arizona. Love you guys especially you Jade you are my idol. I can't wait for you and Davey to make new Blaqk Audio album. I will no doubt be there when you tour for Blaqk Audio. Also you should so make more videos with Smith and you too. You and your bro make me laugh. Later.

Tom said...

This is a great video! Davey looking inconspicuous while tainting the punch was priceless!

So a new Blaqk Audio song was premiered on Live 105 at the end of January and we've all just clued in today. For the 99.9% of fans who missed it, could you maybe post it? :) Please :D

books_and_coffee101 said...

When i watched that video and saw you sitting at the bar with the dude, all i could imagine was you saying to the bartender,"I would like a margarita, shaken not stirred.." LOL i liked it a lot, it had some really beautiful quality to it...

Allie said...

Great video. Love it!! And I'd love to see the picture of Nick 13 and the horse. That would be classic. You should post it. Well, gotta go feed my dog. He's looking at me with those HUGE eyes of his. I swear, his pupils are the size of golfballs.

sadclowndisease said...

MTV hates Canada.

Only seen a shit quality version.

BLAH.

Sarah said...

I think it should have been like an old 1920's type scene with a bonnie and clyde type cople shooting people,but thats just my opinion.I think you looked great in the video,but my mom thought you were chinese lol.But Davey should grow his long black hair again and bring the makeup back.
PS. We would LOVE to see the pic of Nick 13 petting the horse!!!!

xoxoxoxox with love from Cleveland,Ohio

Ash said...

Oh em freakin gee it's so amazing

:O

DeGali said...

I can't see this video in my region too. I'm spanish, and sometimes I feel frustrated, AFI don't come to spain, I can't buy a lot of products of AFI, I can't see the videos... I live in a beautiful country... but the good music don't come here!

Emi said...

Amazering video :D Hope tour was fun!

ObsceneRadish said...

I pretty much laughed my way through that video. I'm not sure if that's the response you wanted to illict, but I just couldn't help myself. Davey's blatant poisoning of the punch, Adam's "Sup?" nod to the guy on the couch, Hunter's eye roll at the (hot) chick at the pool, and your hate face at the drunk guy harrassing you, all had me giggle-snorting.
On a side note, you looked very dapper.

P.S - If it's an embarrassing photo of him, store it in a flash drive and stash it away for leverage or entertainment on a rainy day. :]

W.Kahla said...

OMG I just logged on to afireinside.net (for like the first time in eons) and what did I discover?


AFI streaming a version of Beautiful Thieves I can view. Oh thank you so much for fixing it. XOXO OH! That totally made my day.


p.s. Adam looks so um? Amused can I say that. lol wonderful job guys!
<3

Oh, yeah, MTV doesn't like Canada, and considering the amount of water we sell you Americans every year, you'd think they would. Not only that, but we're also letting you people participate in the Olympics. So bleh. I once met a girl in Sandusky (which I believe is in Ohio) who told me she was going to blow up Canada. No, honestly. I don't understand. By the way, I love Adam's littl head nod thing there, it reminds me of every day at school, when I get there and Radian is putting his backpack down on the snow and he's like 'hey' and I nod.

Matt [DF] said...

Jade we always do, your the man! Hope to see you in Austin again!

Shaina said...

I loved this video <3
I think its the best AFI had made so far. lol my favorite part was adam looking at the guy with the two girls that were on the couch suductivly that was hilarious=)

Anonymous said...

First I would like to say one thing, you guys are AWESOME! But the newest album is kinda pop-ish..which was not what I was expecting at all. I'm not bashing you guys, I just really love the old AFI.

Sincerly,
A Dedicated Fan <3

P.S. I think you should tell Davey to shave more frequently...just a suggestion.
