AFI gives us another taste of their upcoming EP with the newly released “Trash Bat.” They also shared the lyric video for the high energy track, which you can watch below. Speaking about the song in a press release, guitarist Jade Puget, who mixed and produced the EP, said about the song:
“This was the ideal song to kick off the EP. From Adam’s big drum fill at the top all the way through to the end, it’s just a quick burst of frenetic energy. I brought the song in and was playing it for Davey and he threw out the line, ‘my Trash Bat’ and I thought, how can you lose with a title like that? What is a Trash Bat anyway? Who cares!”
Previously, they surprised fans with the release of their new single “Get Dark” also from The Missing Man (Ex Noctem Nacimur) EP, which drops December 7. Both “Get Dark” and “Trash Bat” are currently available as instant downloads. Pre-order your copy along with exclusive merch bundles here.
A day after the EP’s release, AFI will play KROQ’s Almost Acoustic Christmas in Los Angeles, which also features performances from The Smashing Pumpkins, Bad Religion, Greta Van Fleet, Mike Shinoda, and more. After this, the band will play two sold-out shows at the Ace of Spades in Sacramento on December 9 and The Observatory North Park in San Diego on December 10.
