On Friday morning, AFI fans were surprised by a new track called “Get Dark.” The song is the first track off of their upcoming special EP entitled The Missing Man (Ex Noctem Nacimur).
Lead vocalist Davey Havok said in a statement, “Thanks to the unexpected continuation of The Blood Tour, we found ourselves inspired to begin writing. It was during this process that The Missing Man was found.”
On “Get Dark,” Havok said, “From the initial performance and recording, it had a driving sense of forward movement and penetrating connection. The song’s themes of deification and deference, self-loathing and vanity, captivation and release, damage and healing, are posed in a subtle invitation to those inherently compelled to accept.”
The Missing Man is produced and mixed by AFI guitarist Jade Puget and will be released on December 7th.
