Few names invoke as much majesty in the world of melodic death metal than Swedish …
Fans have been given another taste of what’s to come as AFI release the second single from upcoming EP The Missing Man.
Titled Trash Bat, the songs release follows previous single Get Dark as the EP, released Friday December 7th, draws closer.
Of the song, guitarist Jade Puget said ‘This was the ideal song to kick off the EP. From Adam’s big drum fill at the top all the way through to the end, it’s just a quick burst of frenetic energy. I brought the song in and was playing it for Davey and he threw out the line, “My Trash Bat” and I thought, how can you lose with a title like that? What is a Trash Bat anyway? Who cares!’
AFI’s new EP will mark the first new music from the band since their last studio album in 2017, the self-titled album also known as The Blood Album. That album hit number five on the US Billboard 200 following 2013 album Burials which also hit the top ten, leaving new EP The Missing Man with a lot to live up to.
With two songs released and three more to come in the form of Break Angels, Back Into The Sun and title track The Missing Man, AFI’s new EP will release this coming Friday in hopes of giving fans a taste of something new from a band that is ten studio albums into their career.
