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.”

Photo: Ivana Kličković Cate Le Bon has never been easy to pin down. Having toured and collaborated with a diverse selection of musicians ranging from St. Vincent to Deerhunter, the Welsh musician and producer could loosely be described as trading in sprawling alt-folk, but that would only tell half the story. On her newest record, ‘Reward’, Le Bon creates a unique world indebted to new wave and jazz as much as it is to contemporary pop and folk acts—all with her own idiosyncratic twist.
