Hear AFI’s New Emotional Ballad ‘Caught’

AFI have shared their new standalone single “Caught” in the wake of the band’s short film Where We Used To Meet.

The emotional ballad was originally recorded during recording sessions for Bodies, but was cut from the album. The band premiered the song during the Los Angeles premiere of their short film.

“We were really happy with ‘Caught’ and planned for it to be on the Bodies album,” vocalist Davey Havok explains. “We ended up cutting it at the last minute to allow for a better album flow, but still really loved the song. When we started collaborating with Kes on ‘Where We Used To Meet,’ we thought it would be a great context to present the song in.”

“I really like ‘Caught’ and I fought for it,” drummer Adam Carson adds. “Even though I didn’t play on it at all, I felt that it was a really good song and would be important on the record. I was crushed when it didn’t make the cut, so I’m happy we are releasing it now.”

Listen to the song below.

“Caught” will be released as a limited 7″. Get more details here.

AFI will embark on their North American headline tour starting February 11th, 2022 in San Diego, California. See all their dates here.
