AFI will release its eleventh album, "Bodies", on June 11 via Rise Records. The LP was produced and engineered by AFI guitarist Jade Puget, while the mixing was handled by Tony Hoffer.
Two new songs from "Bodies", "Looking Tragic" and "Begging For Trouble", can be streamed below.
"'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."
Drummer Adam Carson adds: "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. 'Begging For Trouble' was greenlit, at least in my mind, the moment I heard the vocals come in. To me, the track is a cornerstone of the new record."
Last month, AFI released the first two singles from "Bodies", "Twisted Tongues" and "Escape From Los Angeles".
"Bodies" track listing:
01. Twisted Tongues 02. Far Too Near 03. Dulceria 04. On Your Back 05. Escape From Los Angeles 06. Begging For Trouble 07. Back From The Flesh 08. Looking Tragic 09. Death Of The Party 10. No Eyes 11. Tied To A Tree
