You have to give AFI credit for catering to their fans, who are known to be quite rabid in their dissection of the band’s songs and videos — from hidden messages to overall themes. The premiere of “Beautiful Thieves” was no different, and to help answer some of those questions, AFI has released a behind-the-scenes look at the video.
In the six-minute piece each member of AFI shares insight on the song itself, the meaning of the video, or what it’s like on the set of a video shoot. In describing the overall video, lead vocalist Davey Havok remarks, “[It] shows people actually being forced to be responsible for their actions. We implement that retribution, if you will.”
