AFI’s Davey Havok recently announced that he and longtime AFI partner, Jade Puget, have completed work on the third album by their electronic alter ego, Blaqk Audio. The disc, titled Material, is due out April 15th.
The duo is giving fans a preview of the album by releasing their single, “Anointed.” Material will be the band’s third release following their last release in 2012, Bright Black Heaven.
“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.”
“Considering this is Blaqk Audio’s third record over the course of its 15-year existence, it’s always an exciting and rare opportunity to release a new batch of songs,” says Puget. “Each new release finds us in a very different place, creatively, than the last,” he adds.
Blaqk Audio’s “Anointed” is available to stream via iTunes where you can also pre-order the album.
