SHARES TWO TRACKS ‘LOOKING TRAGIC’ & ‘BEGGING FOR TROUBLE’ WITH VIDEO FOR ‘LOOKING TRAGIC’ BOTH TRACKS INCLUDED ON UPCOMING LIMITED 7″.

AFI has announced its eagerly-awaited new album ‘Bodies’, due June 11, 2021 via Rise Records. The album is heralded by two new songs – the driving ‘Looking Tragic’ and the fast-paced, hooky ‘Begging For Trouble’ – alongside a video for ‘Looking Tragic’ by longtime AFI collaborator Adam Mason. Both new tracks will be included on a limited 7″. ‘Bodies’ was produced by the band’s own Jade Puget and mixed by Tony Hoffer (M83, Phoenix, Silversun Pickups). Watch the video for ‘Looking Tragic’:

‘Looking Tragic’ addresses the theme of overstimulation resulting in desensitization”, says frontman Davey Havok. “Melodic and driving, the song came to life quickly and immediately stood out as a track to make bodies, if not sentiments, move”.

“After years of receiving early versions of songs from Jade and Davey, in forms that span loosely arranged chords and scratch vocal to fully realized demos, I think I have become quite adept at knowing which songs will or will not make the record”, adds drummer Adam Carson. “‘Begging For Trouble’ was green lit, at least in my mind, the moment I heard the vocals come in. To me, the track is a cornerstone of the new record”.

‘Bodies’ was mixed by Tony Hoffer (Depeche Mode, Belle & Sebastian) and mastered by Vlado Meller (Oasis, Pink Floyd). Puget produced the album and handled most of the engineering.
