In a statement regarding the album, AFI frontman Davey Havok said, “This record is of silence, and the burials that result from that silence. It’s of betrayal, cruelty, weakness, anxiety, panic  deep and slow  despair, injury and loss. And in this it is shamefully honest and resolutely unforgiving.”[5][6]

Vocalist Davey Havok has said the album has the darkest lyrics of any AFI album.[7] In contrast to previous releases, Havok described Burials as being “very layered and very rich”, adding that it was “far, far less straightforward than what we did on the last record, which – much like every record we create – was the result of a natural growth, a natural indication of where we are as songwriters now”.[8] This is the first AFI album to credit songwriters individually, as opposed to the band as a whole, since 1997’s Shut Your Mouth and Open Your Eyes.

The band worked with producer Gil Norton and engineer Andrew Scheps, while recording Burials in Los Angeles, California.[5][9]

From April to June 2013, five black-and-white teaser videos were released on AFI’s website.[10] The band was later announced to play Riot Fest 2013, as well as being signed to Republic Records.[11] On July 18, AFI’s website was replaced with the single cover for “I Hope You Suffer” and a stream of the new song, which was made available for purchase on July 23;[12] the same day, the album’s title and release date were announced.[13] On July 31, a music video was released for “I Hope You Suffer”. It contained primarily shots of the band performing the song in black and white and contained similar imagery to the previously released teaser videos.

Another single, “17 Crimes“, was released on August 6;[14][lower-alpha 1] on August 16, a music video was released.[17] An EDM remix of the song was included on the soundtrack to the film The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones.

A new song from Burials, “A Deep Slow Panic”, was made available for streaming on the website for Spin, along with a new interview of the band on October 10, 2013.[18]
