According to theprp.com, AFI has premiered their brand new music video for their track “On Your Back.” That song appears on their eleventh studio album Bodies, which was released this past Friday. Bodies is the first LP from the band since 2017’s The Blood Album.
The song is a high-tempo rock fest that keeps running. It features drums, bass, guitar and wicked vocals. Check out the video below:
The band also performed their new song in an in-studio session that aired on BBC Radio 1‘s ‘Rock Show With Daniel P Carter’ over the weekend. You can listen back to that here.
AFI also recently released the track “Tied To A Tree” as a part of their album Bodies. The song starts off slower-paced and eventually crescendos towards the middle and end of the song. The track was released alongside a dark-themed visualizer that features art from oracle cards. In a press release, Jade Puget, guitarist for AFI, stated, “This is not only my favorite song on the record but an exemplification of the evolution of the band.”
Hunter Burgan, the bassist for the band, stated in a press release, “Every album is an opportunity to show people a snapshot of our evolution. And with this band, it’s always something fresh. We’ve been playing together for so long that I have a deep understanding of each of my bandmates’ musical styles, and yet I am still pleasantly surprised by the new things they bring to each record.”
Jade Puget added, “Anyone who knows our catalog knows that no two records really sit together. Some sit a little closer, maybe. We do certain things, just by virtue of who we are, that are consistent, but those things come about organically. Every time we do something, I have to judge it on its own merits. Some fans are going to judge a new album, or a new song, based on what’s come before. But as artists, we can’t do that, because it would only hinder our creativity.”
