In Review: Davey On KROQ

Davey Havok just appeared on KROQ to premiere the new single, “Medicate.” Here is what we learned in the interview:

1. Crash Love did not take as long to create as Decemberunderground. AFI wrote for 9 months and then recorded for another 9 months.
2. The general meaning of Medicate is about “really powerful and fleeting experiences.”
3. Crash Love was mostly written in a hotel room in LA. The melodies were constructed and then the lyrics were created.
4. There will be more US tour dates.
5. The 2nd Blaqk Audio record is finished and will be released after Crash Love.
6. There will be special news for AFI fans who listen to KROQ in the next few weeks.

Update: A YouTube video of the KROQ interview can be found here. Another video of the song that is from the premiere can be found here.
