“Davey was going through a very chaotic and dark time in his life when we started this record, which really motivated what he was writing, which motivated what I was creating. We had never come from that place before. Not even Black Sails In The Sunset was as dark. We were coming from a fast and angry perspective. We were definitely drawn to the darker and heavier sounds on this new album. Lyrically the theme is definitely chaos, panic, kind of destruction, anger; and for me, knowing where he’s coming from I had to match that.”
Burials will be released later this month via Republic Records. AFI released their last studio album, Crash Love, back in September 2009.
