AFI’s Davey Havok talks about “Burials”

Posted by ChrisDude on Thursday, April 17, 2014 at 7:23 PM (PST)

Last weekend, AFI frontman Davey Havok talked to Fuse’s Jack Osbourne about the making of their latest album Burials, which was released last October, and how he channels its themes of panic and anxiety on stage. Havok states:

“I encounter [those feelings] on the regular basis as a human. At the time of the creation of our record Burials, those themes and emotions were very present in my life, unfortunately. Before going on stage, it’s more of a calm and a focus. A lot of those emotions are what we’re creating on stage. Though it may be a bleak sentiment, the unification of people expressing that catharsis has a positive result at times.”

Nirvana to reunite for new music?

Posted by ChrisDude on Thursday, April 17, 2014 at 3:04 PM (PST)

It’s been over exactly 20 years since Kurt Cobain’s death put Nirvana to an end. Following a one-off reunion at last week’s Rock and Roll Hall of Fame ceremony (and one later on that night), its surviving members Dave Grohl and Krist Novoselic spoke to Rolling Stone about the future of the band, and the possibility of new material. On the possibility of a reunion, Novoselic stated:

“There’s Foo Fighters and Dave has some other projects going on. And I have some commitments. But you never say never now. We did it. I sure won’t say no. Maybe we can even do some new music one day.”

However, Grohl is uncertain about the idea, stating, “We haven’t even talked about it. We looked at that evening as a night that may never happen again. That’s what made it so powerful and beautiful and meaningful. And it may never happen again, so we made the most of it. And it was fucking great.”

Nirvana “reunited” in December 2012 and again last July, with former Beatles bassist Paul McCartney filling in for Kurt Cobain.
