AFI Announces New Album “Bodies”, Shares Two New Songs “Looking Tragic” and “Begging For Trouble”

By: Staff –

AFI has announced the release of their new album Bodies, due out 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″ — find more information HERE. 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” and “Begging For Trouble” below, and pre-order Bodies HERE.

“‘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.”

The album announcement follows last month’s release of “Twisted Tongues” and “Escape From Los Angeles,” which were the band’s first new music since the acclaimed The Missing Man EP in 2018. The tracks were included on a limited 7″, which can be purchased HERE.
