AFI Fans Get A Treat With Two New Songs


Californian gothic punks AFI has released not one but two new singles, their first new music in almost three years.

Yesterday, AFI released two new singles, Twisted Tongues and Escape From Los Angeles, which can be ordered as a limited edition 7 inch vinyl right HERE.

This is the bands first new music since 2018’s The Missing Man EP with the tracks a likely taste of what is to come in the band’s 11th studio album due for release via Rise Records before the years end.

The band’s vocalist Davey Havok said of the new tracks, “As I recall, Twisted Tongues came of the Blood era and was the first piece of music we explored on the new album.”

He goes on to explain, “The dreaminess of the music lyrically inspired themes of unforeseen severance. It is a pining song of being set adrift by those who once feigned to share the same anchors.”

“Los Angeles, like most of my loves, is imbued with a darkness and radiance,”  Davey Havok, AFI

Havok’s deep connection with his home inspired the band’s second track, “Musically, Escape From Los Angeles called for my own vantage to this classic theme of the city’s dichotomous allure.”

Guitarist Jade Puget adds that listeners may find this new music a little different to the previous AFI sound.

He is confident that fans will be keen to hear the full album before drawing conclusions about their new music. “Every time we do something, I have to judge it on its own merits. Some fans are going to judge a new album, or a new song, based on what’s come before. But as artists, we can’t do that, because it would only hinder our creativity,” he said.

You can listen to Twisted Tongues and Escape From Los Angeles on all streaming services right HERE.
