AFI RELEASES THE MISSING MAN EP
LOS ANGELES FANS CAN CATCH AFI AT KROQ’S ALMOST ACOUSTIC CHRISTMAS TOMORROW NIGHT
Los Angeles, CA – Today sees the release of AFI’s The Missing Man (Ex Noctem Nacimur) a new 5-song EP that the band (vocalist Davey Havok, guitarist Jade Puget, drummer Adam Carson and bassist Hunter Burgan) announced just a few weeks ago – HERE to listen.
“The five songs have unique sounds and each has its own identity,” Havok LA Weekly. “’The Missing Man’ is a cinematic song, as opposed to the driving force behind a ‘Get Dark’ or a ‘Trash Bat.’ The EP moves in different directions from there.”
The EP was produced and mixed by Puget and sneak-previewed with the release of “Get Dark” and “Trash Bat,” which drew praise from the likes of Brooklyn Vegan, Consequence of Sound and Stereogum, among others.
Tomorrow night, AFI will play KROQ’s Almost Acoustic Christmas, followed by a sold-out show on Sunday the 9th at the Ace of Spades in Sacramento, CA, and then another sold-out show on the 10th at The Observatory North Park in San Diego, CA.
The Missing Man follows last year’s AFI (The Blood Album), which hit No. 1 on Billboard’s Alternative and Hard Rock Albums Charts and No. 5 on The Billboard 200. It was the band’s second consecutive Top 10 Billboard debut following 2013’s Burials.
Alternative Press and Q gave AFI (The Blood Album) 4 stars each, AV Club said it sounded like the band are “as fired up now as they were 25 years ago,” People magazine made it a Pick of the Week, Kerrang called it a “serious contender” for the Best Albums of 2017 list, The 405 praised it as “their strongest album in a decade” and ABC News gave it 3.5 stars and described it as “a dynamic record that should please both old and new fans of the band.”
Since the release of 1995’s debut album Answer That and Stay Fashionable, AFI (Havok, Puget, drummer Adam Carson and bassist Hunter Burgan) has written and recorded five top ten hit singles (“Miss Murder,” “Medicate,” “Love Like Winter,” “Silver and Gold,” “Girl’s Not Grey”), hit No. 1 on The Billboard 200 (with the stunning Decemberunderground), garnered worldwide critical acclaim and amassed a fiercely loyal global following whose members number in the millions.
