After teasing their return and the promise of a new album in 2021 last week, AFI have now released two brand new songs.
They are the quivering 'Twisted Tongues' and throbbing 'Escape From Los Angeles'.
So here's 'Twisted Tongues', which Davey Havok had this to say about it:
As I recall, 'Twisted Tongues' came of the Blood era and was the first piece of music we explored on the new album. The dreaminess of the music lyrically inspired themes of unforseen severance. It is a pining song of being set adrift by those who once feigned to share the same anchors.”
And 'Escape From Los Angeles', which he had this to say about:
“Los Angeles, like most of my loves, is imbued with a darkness and radiance. Musically, 'Escape from Los Angeles' called for my own vantage to this classic theme of the city's dichotomous allure."
Guitarist Jade Puget had this to add:
"Anyone who knows our catalog knows that no two records really sit together. Some sit a little closer, maybe. We do certain things, just by virtue of who we are, that are consistent, but those things come about organically. 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."
The tracks are set to be released on a limited special 7' record, which you can pick up from right HERE
They serve as the first new music from the band since the release of their EP 'The Missing Man' back in 2018.
