AFI Return With New Track Get Dark

Friday, 26 October 2018 Written by Laura Johnson

AFI have released a new single.

Get Dark is the first new material to emerge from the California goth-punks since their 2017 LP 'AFI (The Blood Album)', and is set to feature on a new EP called 'The Missing Man'. The five song collection is expected to arrive on December 7 and was produced by guitarist Jade Puget.

The track finds the band momentarily taking a break from their trademark dramatics and going full blown rock 'n' roll, churning out distorted power chords while Davey Havok ricochets between chanted and soft vocals. It's an AFI song released a week before Halloween, you're required to hit play. Them's the rules.

“From the initial performance and recording, it had a driving sense of forward movement and penetrating connection," Havok said. "The song’s themes of deification and deference, self-loathing and vanity, captivation and release, damage and healing, are posed in a subtle invitation to those inherently compelled to accept.”

Tue 27 Aug 2019
The stars of mid-2000s indie discos are frozen in time in the memories of a lot of people—their music might as well be an advert for sticky floors and test tube shots. And that’s where the Futureheads, who had a couple of songs that were students’ union staples, might still reside in the eyes of some.
Ezra Furman - Twelve Nudes (Album Review)
Wed 04 Sep 2019
Seeking to stay true to a punk aesthetic, Ezra Furman and band recorded ‘Twelve Nudes’ at a rapid pace with creative help from booze and cigarettes. And it shows. It doesn’t deliver the production finesse of 2018’s ‘Transangelic Exodus’, but that’s kind of the point.

Tool’s return, after a 13 year absence that amounted to torture for their committed following, is a slow moving, dense work defined by its patient approach. Its steadfast insistence on hitting its marks in its own time, and skipping zero pages in the band’s playbook, will delight diehards.
The Futureheads - Powers (Album Review)
Mon 02 Sep 2019
‘Powers’ is the Futureheads’ sixth studio album and the first since the band went on hiatus following the lukewarm reception to their excellent a capella offering ‘Rant!’ in 2013. It is a return to the thrashy post punk sound that characterised their early success, and while familiar problems arise with several songs, it is a record of intricate and innovative arrangements that should place them firmly back on the European festival circuit next year.
