A.F.I. guitarist Jade Puget recently provided an update on the band's new full-length and follow-up to Decemberunderground and rarities EP. Here is what he had to say on the subject:
Hi all, Jade here. What's new? Thought I'd check in, I called your phone but it totally went right to voicemail.
It's that time again, new album time. AFI 8. I had to count them out on my fingers just now to figure out which one we were on.
This is always my favorite time of the whole process because you don't really know what the next album is going to sound like. Well, actually, Dave(y) and I spent the last 3 days locked in a hotel room writing and we already have 4 new songs.
I have tons of material written so I'm rearing to go. (I also have about 40 songs in various stages of completion for what will be the next Blaqk Audio.)
As you probably already know, we're putting out an EP soon too, of unreleased songs from the last 2 albums. We're working on the artwork for that as we speak.
Maybe you've already heard one of them, Carcinogen Crush? Interesting fact, that's the only one written by Hunter, although the chorus has went through some changes. I remember when he brought in a demo of it, it was all in whispers because he didn't want to wake up his neighbors.
So that's about it for now, we'll be hard at work on the new album, any questions? Nice seeing you again, you look good.
