A.F.I. guitarist Jade Puget spoke with RollingStone.com about the electronic side project Blaqk Audio he’s working on with frontman Dave Havok. “Everything’s electronic, no instruments,” Puget says. “We’ve been experimenting — everything from industrial to ambient stuff. We’re just going to see what happens. Dave and I listen to a lot of electronic music. I like all the EBM [electronic body music] stuff, Covenant, Aphex Twin, Squarepusher, [Paul] Oakenfold, DJ Shadow and BT.” The duo has eight songs completed for an album targeted for next year.
