AFI Go A New Direction, As Usual, With ‘Crash Love’

Davey Havok and his AFI bandmates

The crappy weather at Toronto’s Edgefest gave Eye Weekly an excuse to take shelter in the press tent and talk to AFI about their upcoming album ‘Crash Love’.

“We have just recently finished recording a new record,” Davey Havok explained. “As with all of our releases, it’s very different than the last release and it’s very different than the release before that. It’s hard for us to really step back at this moment in making a record at any point in any of the records and really describe to you what it is because we’re so close to it. But it definitely is a slight new direction but I don’t think that anybody would listen to it and not immediately recognize it as us at the same time.”

Expect More In-Your-Face Rock On AFI’s Next Album

Blender spoke with AFI bassist Hunter Burgan after he was awarded Top Music Twitter honors for his site Tranquil Mammoth at the 2009 Shorty Awards in Brooklyn. Asked about the band’s next album, Burgan responded, “In typical AFI fashion w’ere taking our time. We’ve been working on it in the studio or writing it for like a year and half. We’ve done an extensive amount of demo-ing, more so than we’ve ever done in the past. This is definitely more of a rock album—more immediate and definitely more of a focused, direct approach musically. Compared to [2006’s] ‘Decemberunderground’, where some of the songs were more subtle, these are more in-your-face. We expect to be done in time to tour on the record this summer. But whether or not it’s out, we’ll be on the road.”

A.F.I.: We Really Mean It

AFI frontman Davey Havok spoke with Australia’s Time Off magazine about what sets the Ukiah, California band apart from the rest. “I tend to think it’s a matter of fans being able to recognize the honesty in our music, recognize what we’re doing is really an expression of ourselves, and we do it because we love it, and really mean it,” Havok reasoned. “I think that comes through in the words and our live performances, and I think people gravitate towards that because in the end, what makes people passionate about something, or feel a real connection to something, is the authenticity of that art, no matter what it is.” The article at timeoff.com.au has since been removed.
