AFI have released another single from their upcoming album, Bodies, out June 11 via Rise Records. Check out “Tied To A Tree” now!
“Tied To A Tree” is the closing track on the new record, and is one of the stand-out tracks on Bodies, according to guitarist Jade Puget. He says:
“This is not only my favorite song on the record, but an exemplification of the evolution of the band.”
This single follows on from “Twisted Tongues” and “Escape From Los Angeles,” as well as “Dulcería” — which was co-written by The Smashing Pumpkins’ Billy Corgan, giving fans a taster of what to expect from the album.
Frontman Davey Havok says: “AFI is such an integral part of who I am. What we do with AFI together is a foundation for me. Coming back is a return to a home I’ve always known.”
The feeling is mutual across the whole band, as Puget adds: “I couldn’t do what I do in AFI in any other place. Davey and I have written songs together for over 20 years now. I couldn’t find the thing he and I have together anywhere else, nor the thing the four of us have when we come together. AFI is home for me and will always be that.”
Drummer Adam Carson comments: “At this point, it’s not even a choice. It’s just what I do. I started this band with Davey when I was 16. It’s something that I love so much. It’s just a part of me.”
Bassist Hunter Burgan reiterates: “Every album is an opportunity to show people a snapshot of our evolution. And with this band, it’s always something fresh. We’ve been playing together for so long that I have a deep understanding of each of my bandmates‘ musical styles, and yet I am still pleasantly surprised by the new things they bring to each record.”
