Ignore the rumors about AFI splitting up — the band was a victim of a hacker. Someone broke into singer Davey Havock‘s account on AFI’s message board and posted that the band was packing it in.

Someone is just screwing around.” And AFI drummer Adam Carson Tweeted, “We would have totally written a better press release.”
