Hunter Burgan reveals AFI is on hiatus (again)

Although it was revealed earlier this year that a new album was in the works, AFI bassist Hunter Burgan revealed that the band has been on hiatus (again), due to members focusing on other projects, but promises they will return soon. He explains:

“”When’s AFI coming to ______?” “When’s the next AFI record?” “You guys need to stop doing other things and do some AFI!” — Patience, my friends. AFI is an important part of our lives, but we’re all just human beings. We’ve got things to do and people to see. Sometime you have to stop and smell the roses to remember that you live in a neighborhood with a rosebush on the corner. We’ll be back soon, I promise.”

AFI have gone on hiatus before, most notably back in 2011 when fans believed that they were actually breaking up, which proved untrue. The band ended their hiatus in 2013, and released Burials, their first album in four years, that October.



Davey Havok’s mom talks about raising a “rock star”

AFI frontman Davey Havok is lucky enough to have a mom who loves him.  Unlike the rest of us, who might have to endure their moms telling their friends embarrassing stories about that time they threw up all over the rest of their family on a camping trip (oh wait, was that just me?!), Davey Havok has to endure the stories told in a public forum.

Havok’s mom, Penny Marchand, recently talked to The AVA, an online news site based in Mendocino, all about raising a punk rocker.  You can read the full piece here.

AFI last released Burials, their first album in four years, on October 22, 2013 through Republic Records.  Rumor has it that a new album is in the works, and we’ll keep you posted on that as details emerge.

Random Cover Song: Jawbreaker – “You Don’t Know What You’ve Got” (Joan Jett and the Blackhearts)

Cover songs are like a box of chocolates; you never know what you’re going to get. We here at Dying Scene love hearing punk bands do their own take on other band’s songs. Sometimes they pull off amazing interpretations of old classics, sometimes they’re not much more than humble tributes to a fellow artist, and other times they’re just downright laughable renditions of otherwise great songs. Good or bad. Intriguing or mundane. We’ll let you be the judge.

Today’s cover comes from 90′s punk staples Jawbreaker, tackling “You Don’t Know What You’ve Got” by Joan Jett and the Blackhearts. The original version of the song appeared on Jett’s debut solo album, Bad Reputation in 1981 (initially released as Joan Jett in 1980), while Jawbreaker’s cover first appeared on the Chesterfield King EP, before being reissued on CD versions of Bivouac (both in 1992).

You can listen to both versions below.

Mark Hoppus: Blink-182 are going through “a friendly divorce” with Tom DeLonge

So it appears that the inevitable welcome or unwelcome (depending on your perspective) news is finally upon us: Tom DeLonge is gone from the Blink-182 camp, and isn’t exactly on his way back.

In a recent interview with the Das Process podcast, Blink bassist/vocalist Mark Hoppus confirmed that the remaining two-thirds of the band were going through a “friendly divorce with (their) former guitarist.” Hoppus added: “hopefully things clear up and it doesn’t get all manager-y and lawyer-y and all that and we can move forward.” You can check out the rest of the interview here.

It would appear that this would pave the way for DeLonge’s recent replacement, Alkaline Trio‘s Matt Skiba (pictured above with Hoppus and drummer Travis Barker) to take a more official role in what would, in many ways, become a sort of supergroup. Stay tuned.
