The legendary rockers have shared two more tracks from the album, Dulceria and Far Too Near—the former co-written by The Smashing Pumpkins‘ Billy Corgan.
“Dulcería suggests, if you spend too much time in the candy store you may end up stuck to the floor,” says frontman 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.”
Bodies was produced by the band’s own Jade Puget, mixed by Tony Hoffer (M83, Phoenix, Silversun Pickups), and mastered by Vlado Meller (Oasis, Pink Floyd). It follows on 2018’s The Missing Man EP.
AFI came together in the mid-90s. Over the years they’ve released a stack of genre-defining records, including Sing the Sorrow (2003), Decemberunderground (2006), Crash Love (2009), Burials (2013) and The Blood Album (2017).
“Every album is an opportunity to show people a snapshot of our evolution,” says bassist Hunter Burgan. “And with this band, it’s always something fresh. We’ve been playing together for so long that I have a deep understanding of each of my bandmates’ musical styles, and yet I am still pleasantly surprised by the new things they bring to each record.”
Both Dulcería and Far Too Near will be included on a limited 7”, catch all the details here.
