AFI have released two new songs, Twisted Tongues and Escape From Los Angeles

Listen to AFI’s first new music since 2018’s The Missing Man EP: the very awesome Twisted Tongues and Escape From Los Angeles.

New AFI is finally here! The band have just shared not one but two new songs: the equally excellent Twisted Tongues and Escape From Los Angeles.

Speaking of the genesis of the tracks, frontman Davey Havok reveals, 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,” he continues. 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.”

Both songs can be bought on a new limited-edition 7″, which you can pre-order here. Listen to Twisted Tongues and Escape From Los Angeles below:
