AFI Interview On Shockhound

AFI posted a exclusive video from Shockhound.com on their MySpace today. In it they talk about their small town roots, differences in writing styles between Blaqk Audio and AFI, and the "natural thread" that runs through all of AFI's music.


Some highlights of the text part of the interview were:
  • "'Darling I Want To Destroy You' was similar that way, except it was a jam, and that’s never happened before with AFI. Those guys started jamming and the song became a front-to-back thing in rehearsal. Then I took the tape home and wrote the melody just off the music, which is more Blaqk Audio-esque in its creation." -Davey
  • "We didn’t scrap anything [when we switched producers], and we didn’t write any new stuff with the new producers. We simply re-recorded it. It was always more of a sonic issue than it was a songwriting issue. We had an idea of how we wanted the record to sound, and we just weren’t getting there on the first attempt. So it really wasn’t as dramatic as it sounds." -Adam

  7. The first half of the interview was bullshit, but I think afi brought it all together in the second half.

  8. "We don't play any type of music"... That is the secret to their success always. That's how they've gotten to where they're at because they follow no one, they're in their own league and cannot be compared or categorized with anyone. As absurd as that statement sounds to some, there is nothing more true.
