AFI have released two new songs, “Twisted Tongues” and “Escape From Los Angeles.” Both tracks are expected to appear on the band’s upcoming album.
Davey Havok commented:
“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 unforeseen severance. It is a pining song of being set adrift by those who once feigned to share the same anchors.
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.”
Jade Puget added:
“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.”
