AFI'S Davey Havok and Jade Puget return with Blaqk Audio. The new album from the duo's electronic alter ego is called 'Material' and will be released on their label Blaqknoise via Kobalt Label Services.
Produced and recorded by Puget, 'Material' is Blaqk Audio's third release following 2012's 'Bright Black Heaven' and 2007's 'Cexcells.'
"I'm so very excited to offer Material to the world," says Havok. "My anticipation for each BA release heightens as we grow. For me, lyrically, Material is darker than our records of the past."
Though best known for their work with multi-platinum rock band AFI, Havok and Puget's shared love of electronic music runs deep. Havok, who counts Devo's Freedom of Choice and Duran Duran's self-titled debut among the first albums he owned, saw his tastes evolve over the years from the synth-pop of Erasure and Pet Shop Boys to Depeche Mode and ultimately to the heavier, darker Skinny Puppy, Ministry, Front 242 and Lords of Acid.
Puget shares his bandmate's long-standing love of electronic music, beginning with a passion for Daft Punk, Depeche Mode, Ministry, Squarepusher, Nitzer Ebb, and Front 242. Spending a great deal of time programming electronic music led to a plan to start an entirely electronic side project: no organic instruments, just synths, keyboards, drum machines, and software.
Both Blaqk Audio and AFI have an enduring relationship with Australian fans, with Puget and Havok having been memorably firey on-stage with AFI on the 2014 Soundwave national tour, and Blaqk Audio making a trip down south to support Evanescnce in 2012. This forthcoming release news will be most welcome to fans old and new of BA and AFI alike.
