Blaqk Audio Release Date
Posted on 06-11-07 by Jason Tate
Blaqk Audio, the electronic side endeavor of AFI's Jade Puget and Davey Havok, will finally see the light of day August 7 in the form of the debut album CexCells.
Press ReleaseRecorded entirely by Havok and Puget and mixed by Dave Bascombe
(Depeche Mode, Tears For Fears, Suede), CexCells expands upon and fully indulges the dark electronic textures that have influenced and pervaded the duo's work for years. The results range from evocation of prime era Depeche Mode and early Ministry ("Stiff Kittens," "Where Would You," "Bitter For Sweet") to four on the floor club-friendly fare ("On A Friday," "Snuff On Digital") to vulnerable balladry ("Wake Up," "The Fear").
The common thread running through all of BLAQK AUDIO's material-Havok's signature dark vocal and lyrical stylings and Puget's epic, emotional arrangements-will be instantly identifiable to AFI fans, despite the synthetic washes, keyboard flourishes and robotic beats supplanting the traditional guitar/bass/drum AFI framework.
There will be a BLAQK AUDIO tour in support of CexCells. Dates will be announced once confirmed.
