So here's a little something, this guitar part was originally supposed to go at the end of one of our new songs but I took it out. It's very short but I figured some guitar afficionados might like it, otherwise it will never be heard by anyone. Plus it's a good way to experiment with posting audio files.
By the way, this is ONE guitar part from ONE song, so let's not have any pointless speculation that the whole album will sound like this.
This was originally from a song called, "Endlessly, She Said", that will definitely be on the new album. The song is pretty aggressive and epic but the end is kind of slow and sad, which is where this guitar originally was.

Here's an mp3 version if you're having trouble with the wav file. Quality isn't as good but que sera sera.

Hey Jade, it's great hearing from you. I downloaded the file you put up, however I can't open it. i've tried all my media players so I don't know if I need an update or it wasn't uploaded right.

John said...

Jade, the guitar part sound's really good. Fuck the detractors, if there is one thing to expect from AFI, it's that while you guys might incorporate different elements into your sound, you're still going to be AFI. Don't worry about a few idiots.

Is there any chance of hearing a new track on the DF website any time soon?

CHUCK NORRIS!

THE chuck norris? (so I couldn't comment on your movies section, deal)

Did you know, Chuck Norris - not content with pleasuring himself like any normal man - dips his hand in a strong adhesive and then in broken glass? Legend has it his man juice is actually molten lava and any woman he blows his load on/in is instantly mutilated. Oh yes. For more Chuck Norris facts as great as this go here :

Okay i'm sorry. you know I created an account on this just so I could plague you with messages as crap as this one. But I'm quite tempted to actually blog now. Stay cool, fool.Sam x

For some reason that guitar part reminds me of my grandpa, which isn't a bad thing since my grandpa is the coolest hippie that ever lived.

Uh Hey jade..

You'll probably enjoy this... Bet you didn't know Chuck Norris' Tears cure Cancer...

marky said...

hey hey :P
i jus heard the end guitar music taken from the new album it is great if this is what your taking out i cant wait to see whats left in there for this short peice of music reminds me of someone remenissing and the title of the song Endlessly, She Said seems to go with that but i may be wrong according to others (for all us AFI fans know you dont like to tell the meanings of songs and let the listener decide on his/her own meaning) you posten about the poeple who worry/moan about the new albums being no where near as good as the "old stuff" but to me each AFI album is different and should be listened to as ifs the bands first as yor style of music and playing abilties have improved and evolved throughout the years which for me and many other fans have enjoyed to sea and hear as we all are greatfull for the music you and the fellow band members have producerd over the years and are looking forward to hearing more of it

(i would like to point out just incase this doesent make sense that its 2:29 in the morning and ive only jus got in from the pub...damn thoes new 24hr drinking lisences make me spend more money so if this post does not make any sense i apologise in advanced)

so keep up the good work and im looking forward to hearnig more new music for you and AFI

Jade, I'm doing something wrong, there aren't any music files showing up anywhere, it's only asking me to host my own shit. :\

volare said...

Rebecca said...

Aw man, I'm having the same problem as Orchideleven. :(

I'll try again later I guess.

Hi there! Welcome to Blogger!

Unfortunately I can't listen to that file right now because I'm at work but I will do it at home. And then I'll spam your comment box with my opinions on it.

Anyways, wanna exchange links? :)

damn, i'm sure the tid-bit is amazing, but the stupid file sharing site is being hokey and saying their traffic is too high.

and as for your post on the AFI board, i'm behind you guys 100%. if there's anything that makes AFI amazing, it's the fact that i can never guess what you'll come up with next. you're kind of like willy wonka in that way. :D

if you, jade, or any other kind soul would like to send me this sound file, my email is:
decaying_ash@yahoo.com

agent sometimes said...

Don't listen to any of the naysayers. What so many of us love about AFI is the new direction each album has taken. You guys have only expanded and improved immensely.

Thanks for the snippet =)

Aimee said...

Frank said...

Becky said...

It's great that you managed to get back on the boards and wonderful to hear from you. I can't hear the guitar part because when I click the link it says "Page Cannot Be Found". So if anyone feels like sending it to me my email address is funkypunk92@hotmail.com
Shut up. I made that email address when I was nine.
Thank you.
And I can't wait for the new album Jade. I'm sure it'll be amazing!

Love Becky
xoxoxo

Benjamin Estes said...

Hard to judge out of context, but very interesting, very different. It showcases a different attitude, I think - a willingness to try more complex ideas. I may be off base, but in a lot of AFI's music, I think you shy away from using a lot of overtly complex guitar parts because it doesn't 'fit' with what is essentially fairly simple, effective, music.

Looking forward to hearing more.

Rebecca said...

YAY, I got it to work.

Sounds beautiful Jade. <3

IAMSPARTACUS [DF] said...

Jadith. You kick the shit outta that guitar bro. I can play alla Sing Das Sorrow on the guitar and it rules.

Frisk said...

I like it. My first thought was "Hmmm, where's muh banjo?"

But I haven't been sleeping well, so that may not be relevant.

It's very good. Can't wait to hear more. Viva la taco.

Dammit! I bet the whole album is going to sound like this. It's going to be all acoustic-sucky!

xvinsanityx said...

Jade...wow...that clean tone is so...well...CLEAN! Are you using the same setup as STS? Im sure that's a big secret though.

I can't wait to hear what the whole song sounds like.

Frin said...

Oh and I forgot to ask, "Where'd you get that guitar tone?" *giggles*

Brian said...

On the request of my sister in law (a crazed AFI fan), I made a tab of this. You can download it here (102KB, pdf)

Enjoy :)

nimimerkki said...

JADEJADEJADE!
Yeah, I have never tell how much I love AFI.

And you don't know how happy I am!

We want AFI to Provinssirock, it's some finnish (ehm) you know, event, there is lot of bands playing there.

In Finland is something like 7:20 AM and I was very tired, mut then I heared THAT thing and I was jumping and screaming !

Yeah, and thats the reason why. I'm so happy because some people of Provinssirock, I think arranger, answers to me and he said that thing (AFI to Finland) is possible if we tell that we want AFI to Finland to AFI too !
He said too that they are trying to get AFI to Finland.

Now I don't want to advertise that come to Finland, I just want to tell how fucking happy I am, because my dream maybe someday will be real!

And sorry my bad english, I'm very very tired!

Haha, GOOD NIGHT !
<3

James L said...

I heard this way back in 2005, after you first posted it on here. This girl i was obsessed with introduced me to AFI in 2003 while we were in college, and...so whenever I hear your songs, my heart aches (unrequited love, distance, loss of youth, etc).

This little solo is beautiful. I've listened to it many times over the years, and it's just as evocative and lovely as ever.

I can't wait for the new album. I hope you're having a wonderful experience in the studio, and I wish you all the best!

take care
