AFI Drops TWO New Singles!
AFI has shared "Dulcería" and "Far Too Near," two tracks from their eagerly-awaited new album Bodies (due June 11, 2021 via Rise Records). The swaggering "Dulcería" -- which was co-written by The Smashing Pumpkins' Billy Corgan -- is accompanied by an official music video. Watch the "Dulcería" video HERE. Both new tracks will be included on a limited 7" -- hear the songs and find more information about the 7" HERE.
“'Dulcería' suggests, if you spend too much time in the candy store you may end up stuck to the floor," says vocalist Davey Havok.
“Billy and I have a great creative connection when we’re writing together," adds guitarist Jade Puget. "It was inspiring to work with such a talented and legendary songwriter and 'Dulcería' is a testament to that.“
The band's new songs have already been met with significant praise. SPIN lauded "Twisted Tongues" and "Escape From Los Angeles," noting that "The two tracks pick up where the band left off following 2017’s self-titled release... fusing some experimental new steps into the tried and true AFI formula," and calling their music "one of the most distinct and recognizable sounds today." Consequence shared similar sentiments about "Looking Tragic," praising its "crunchy, Pixies-esque riff and thunderous drums," while observing that "For a band that’s 30 years in, AFI sound quite fresh — in fact, both of these songs are catchy as hell and have a youthful punchiness to them." Davey Havok also recently appeared on the cover of Kerrang! with an in-depth interview about the new album.
The album announcement follows last month's release of "Twisted Tongues" and "Escape From Los Angeles," which were the band's first new music since the acclaimed The Missing Man EP in 2018. Hear both tracks HERE. The tracks were included on a limited 7", which can be purchased HERE.
