AFI release two new tracks
California rock band AFI have issued two new songs, "Twisted Tongues" and "Escape From Los Angeles." Both tracks are available digitally or via a limited-edition 7". A visualizer for each offering can be found below. Frontman Davey Havok comments: "As I recall, Twisted Tongues came of the Blood [Album] era and was the first piece of music we explored on the new album. The dreaminess of the music lyrically inspired themes of unforeseen severance. It is a pining song of being set adrift by those who once feigned to share the same anchors. Los Angeles, like most of my loves, is imbued with a darkness and radiance. Musically, Escape From Los Angeles called for my own vantage to this classic theme of the city's dichotomous allure." Guitarist Jade Puget adds: ?"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."
