Davey Speaks with Loudwire

A new interview with Davey has been posted on Loudwire. He speaks about the inspiration to create a straight edge band, the “Conformist” music video, and future Blaqk Audio and AFI plans. Regarding Blaqk Audio, he said:

“AFI just finished touring ‘Burials,’ so that cycle is done. Blaqk Audio has been working on a third record and we’ve written many songs. We plan on writing more. We’re in the process of doing that now. Hoping to get into the studio as soon as possible to record and release that. Again, I’m just being hopeful where but I’d like to see it out by late Spring. I don’t know if that’s realistic or not, but we’re going to try.

We’d very much like to do a proper tour on that record. We didn’t get to on ‘Bright Black Heaven’ and that still pains me today. We only did maybe two weeks of shows. I’d really like to get out and play both songs that will be the third record and a lot of ‘Bright Black Heaven’ songs. Then of course XTRMST is coming out as well.”

If you missed the XTRMST Reddit Ask Me Anything (AMA) that occurred this afternoon, here’s a quick recap:

– No solid plans have been made in terms of shows, but they are working to book some. California and New York shows are expected.
– There are a few b-sides that may see the light of day. A song titled “Little King” will be released “on the 1st.” Perhaps December 1st?
– The 3rd Blaqk Audio record is the next project Davey and Jade will work on. They’re currently “deep in the writing process”.
-Davey said that this record provided more catharsis than anything he’s done previously.
– There are no plans to create another XTRMST record, but it’s not completely off the table.
– Davey has never been more physically and emotionally exhausted after vocal takes than he was when tracking XTRMST.
– There were talks to make another music video, but it hasn’t been discussed at length.
