AFI Paint Everything Black In Trippy New Video

The video for the band’s single Get Dark sees AFI repainting their grey world a beautiful black.

Last year, Californian goth-punk crew AFI released a new EP, The Missing Man, their first new material since their 2017 self-titled album. Among the singles for the EP was Get Dark, which showcased the band’s signature mixture of upbeat emotional rock, shadowy lyrics, and tongue-in-cheek regard for all things dark.

Now, the band has released a video for Get Dark, which you can watch below. The video shows three hapless inhabitants of a grey, TV-fed world deciding to paint everything around them with pitch, until their whole world is dark. The use of rigid outfits and off-putting patterns smacks of directors like David Lynch.

Check out the video for Get Dark below:

Of the band’s new EP, vocalist Davey Havok said, Thanks to the unexpected continuation of The Blood Tour, we found ourselves inspired to begin writing. It was during this process that The Missing Man was found.”

In regards to Get Dark specifically, Davey commented, From the initial performance and recording, it had a driving sense of forward movement and penetrating connection. The song’s themes of deification and deference, self-loathing and vanity, captivation and release, damage and healing, are posed in a subtle invitation to those inherently compelled to accept.”
