We know it’s simply gothic pop-rock, but it’s what they do with it. Today, AFI have done it again, unchaining their brand new single Aurelia so that it can take flight where it belongs — in the sonic ether.
The track is a wildly-accessible offering from the band, who have handed us a super catchy and dare we say ‘summery’ anthem-in-waiting. It’s sure going to be blasting that chorus with all the windows down on the way to the beach, you know what I mean?
Aurelia is the third new track from the band following its older siblings Snow Cats and White Offerings, which appeared damn-near out of nowhere back in October. They also came with news of a new album, the first from the band in four years.
AFI (The Blood Album) drops Friday, 20th January, and sees the band work with Deftones’ Gore producer Matt Hyde, which makes a lot of sense on Aurelia.
