Die Kalifornier von AFI stellen mit "Get Dark" einen ersten Song ihrer kommende EP "The Missing Man" im Stream vor. Anbei gibt es den Stream der Posthardcore/Alternativeband um Frontmann Davey Havok - jener kommentiert den Titel wie folgt:
“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.”
Gitarrist Jade Puget fuegt hinzu:
“I was aiming for something a little raw for ‘Get Dark.’ In fact, I used most of the vocal takes from the very first time Davey sang it, as well as some of my guitar parts from when we were writing it. The song is built on the sparseness and simplicity of the verse drum groove and guitar riff that opens up into this big anthemic chorus. For the EP, the same idea of a certain rawness was really important to the overall vibe. I feel like it’s easy to turn out a slick, polished set of songs, but to walk that fine line between studio creation and live sound can be difficult. It’s been an intense labor of love and we can’t wait for everyone to hear it.”
"The Missing Man" wird am 7. Dezember auf dem bandeigenen Label "EX NOCTEM NACIMUR" erscheinen und wurde von Puget produziert und gemixt.
